There are dozens of reasons to stop by the giant Buford Highway Farmer’s Market, but the main reason for reporting back on it today is to tell you about these very tasty little Dutch pancakes.
Marie took the kids and met with friends at a no-frills place just outside the perimeter that exceeded their humble expectations and gave everybody a good, cheap meal.
We set out to stumble across a Chinese restaurant, and we did exactly that. That sort of counts as spontaneous, right?
Sometimes, a little customer service means the difference between a pretty good lunch and a very memorable little experience.
We have found one of my favorite places on Buford Highway, and not just because the hot dogs are so darn strange, either.
The popularity of this place has cooled considerably since the celebrated chef who opened it moved on to other places, but we joined a large group here and had a terrific evening with very good food.
In this return trip to this celebrated and very busy space with the funny crooked sign, we meet up with another blogger, we sample some boudin, and the baby enjoys Zapp’s chips so much that he ends up licking the inside of the bag.
Are you psychologically prepared to hear about this old-school vegetarian place? Then I’ll begin.
Some of the hubbub about this place has died down since it opened, but it’s every bit as good as people said, and it has a contender for the best salsa bar in the city.
We stepped into a Korean bakery just to see what they sold, and brought home four of these curious little treats. Then we tasted them and our brains’ already insanely high happiness levels pinged straight off the charts.
Flame-grilled chicken, as it is typically prepared in northwest Mexico, is on the agenda at this small fast food place that’s not getting very much attention from hobbyists.
The salsa bar at this 24-hour tacqueria sort of fizzled out for me, but the lunch was good enough to not need any additional flavors anyway.
I’m not sure that this place would be as good a choice for a solo lunch as it is a celebration for six to eight hungry carnivores.
