The buffet will certainly not leave you hungry.

Located just east of Atlanta’s iconic Centennial Park, Pittypat’s Porch has been serving up this home-style brunch since well before I was born. An Atlanta landmark in it’s own right, the historical element that the restaurant has will educate you about the history of Atlanta, and make you want to go back.

Some of the best fried chicken in Atlanta.

Another advantage of Pittypat’s Porch is the proximity to downtown and the ability to actually sit on the porch while you eat. It is a wonderful vantage point to dine on great southern fare, straddling of the old world charm and the new southern city, right from the front porch. There are plenty of rocking chairs so be ready for a relaxing and filling visit to Atlanta.

Sokongdong Tofu House

As a newcomer to Korean food, I am always open to trying a variety of new choices, to make sure I am not missing out on anything. This practice led me to discover the seafood pancake at So Kong Dong and I am forever thankful.  It is one of those dishes that I didn’t even know existed, so I couldn’t even crave it.  Now, however, I am always craving this dish even when I am not even hungry!

With a variety including bibimbap, short ribs, and bulgogi, Sokongdong Tofu House may need to be the first place you go to try Korean cuisine. All of these selections, including the seafood pancake, where absolutely delicious.

Golden House

Chinese food remains one of the top tier cuisines in the world and one of the most famous dishes is roast duck. Crispy skin and fatty juicy meat is quite the dining experience especially when it is prepared well. The Golden House does do duck very well indeed. We tried the duck two ways, where they slice the breast meat for you and use the rest in a duck salad of sorts.

Family Style Dinner

 

The presentation is a real spectacle as well as they bring it out to your table and slice it right before your eyes. Not a lot of places serve duck in Atlanta with quite so much flare.  You can also enjoy the squid and walnut shrimp, dim sum and many other Cantonese dishes that you may not find elsewhere.

Shake Shack

Now I will admit that I may have never met a burger that I didn’t like.  However, meeting a burger that I love happens a lot more infrequently.  Until, of course, there was Shack Shack.  This does not mean that I am breaking up with my other burger joints around town, just that I may just have a new favorite in town.  There is just something about sitting on the roof top, looking down at the rest of Buckhead, and sinking your teeth into one of these babies.

Hamburgers from Shake Shack

Similar to how the hamburger itself looks down at most of my favorite foods. There is just something simple and carnivorously satisfying to having a really good burger. It really makes you feel like you are on the top of the food chain and things could not get any better.
