So, my planned four day "ethnic food crawl" of north Atlanta has now been reduced to a weekend, dang it. So, which 2-3 of the previously recommended places are NO FAIL for screaming fresh deliciousness?

Mi Pilon

C'OM (Dunwoody)

Crawfish Shack

Desta

So Kong Dong

Canton House

China Delight

Chef Liu's

  1. China Delight has excellent dim sum. I like to go on Sunday because the variety is greater. I've not tried ordering off their menu.

    1. That is an excellent list - very hard to choose. I doubt you will be disappointed with any of them. Varying the cuisine may be the best way to narrow the list. I would personally want to experience as much variety as possible.

      My choices would include Mi Pilon, Desta, and So Kong Dong. Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, and Korea are all very different cuisines.

      1. Chef Lius for sure. Best, if not only, soup dumplings in Atlanta. You should also put Tasty China on your list. Nothing else like it in the Southeast.

        1. I was only a visitor for a few weeks but ate at Desca and loved the food and service.

              Just back from ATL. Here's what we ended up with...

              C'OM Vietnamese Grill--more pan-Asian than authentic Vienamese but delicious nonetheless, esp. the bun dishes. Exemplary service, too.

              Desta--my first stab at Ethiopian dining. Took me awhile to get used to dipping the spongy flatbread in the various dishes (speaking of stabbing), but once I did, I loved the blend of spicy and bland. Great service here as well. (A warning to those on restricted diets, however--the food here is on the salty side.)

              Alon's Bakery--European-style brunch spot with great coffee, pastries, and egg dishes. Be sure to try some the wonderful locally made yogurts and/or juices as well.

              TAP--downtown gastropub just up the street from the High Museum. Had the best soup and sandwich combo ever (grilled Cowgirl Creamery cheese sandwich with tomato bisque). Oh, and they have lots of yummy Belgian and German beers!
