Ssam Burger

December 31, 2013

Ssam Burger has opened on the Westside, near the corner of Defoors and Collier. They have been “Coming Soon” for quite a while, back when they were going to be called Ssam Sausage. Ssam means wrapped in Korean, so you can infer that we are talking about Korean flavors and things wrapped in other things.

Raku Westside

The second location of Raku is open on the Westside now, on Marietta Street in the old Burger Joe’s location near Georgia Tech, just up the road from Yum Bunz and Bocado.

  Not a lot of blog posts these days, I’m traveling a lot, but I’m still eating. Some of it in town too. I have travel posts to Durham, Raleigh, Vegas, and Japan in the works. I wonder if anyone likes those? I do. I go back and look at them when I want to […]

Ben’s Brown Bag

April 5, 2013

First there was LeRoy’s Chicken (Leh-Roy, not Lee-Roy, bubba). They had everything going for it – high quality chicken, a classically trained and respected chef, rich and trendy pork lard for frying, and beautiful broasting fryers.

Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano

March 5, 2013

Finally made it over to Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano, the second coming from The Apostle of Pizza. It’s next door to his pizza place – Antico. It’s communal, like his pizza place. You order at the counter and wait for your food, like the pizza place. The prices aren’t necessarily low, but the quality of the […]

2013 Liberty Park/Westside Chili Cook Off

February 7, 2013

Those of you who know me personally have probably received emails about this (more than you care for, likely), but the 6th annual chili cook-off that a buddy and I put on is a little over two weeks away, and anyone (non-weirdos, please) is welcome. Like last year, the casual cook-off will be held upstairs […]
