i wrote a song… in my mind

food for thought

with 4 comments

i have no idea why the fish in chips in the picture is on the ground near the shore.

i know this isn’t a restaurant review blog, but i thought i’d write a little something about restaurants.

i had this idea for a website that a group of friends would update on regularly on places they would recommend to go eat in a city.  i know there are things like creative loafing and city search, but they’re not very personal and the tastes are very… well… varied.  you don’t really know who can trust on those things.  so i proposed a site where a group of friends would suggest places to go eat cause you know you can trust your friends.  they would suggest places to eat based on location, price, ethnicity.  pretty cool right?  well, they kinda have something like that called yelp.  a couple of my friends are critics on the site (addy c. and gina c.)  it’s a very helpful site and these two definitely update pretty regularly.  i would highly recommend this site.

so here’s some restaurants that i happened to check out this week that i’ve never been to before.  and here’s my take on them.  but don’t take my word for it.

loafing leprechauns – a really good irish pub up north in duluth near the gwinnet center.  the fish and chips was really good and i hear the burgers are excellent.  also seems like a good place to watch a futball match or play some darts and have a beer.

pf changs – i’ve actually never been until this past week.  i wasn’t too impressed.  i’m actually kind of offended they didn’t ask for my permission to use my last name in their restaurant name.  i went to the one near perimeter and our server was good, but i asked another person for an extra plate and a cup of water becuase someone else joined us and she just looked at me.  the portions aren’t that big and the chow fun noodles weren’t done well.  if you like this place, then that’s cool, but i didn’t think it was great.

frank ma south – i kept hearing about this place on yelp and from other people so i really wanted to go.  it was really good.  i think i was a little disappointed because it was hyped up so much, but the food was really good and pretty unique compared to other chinese restaurants.  i would suggest this place although it is kinda of far for most people i know.  it’s near emory.  i would suggest the fish filet in hot oil and the 3 cup chicken although the chicken has a very low meat to bones ratio.  the soup dumplings were ok.  good for what they are i guess, but i was expecting something more.

sorry if you didn’t want to read a restaurant review.  but please tell me if you want more.  i would be glad to update every once in a while on restaurants i’ve been to.  and please suggest restaurants if you’d like.  i know atlanta has so many restaurants i have no idea about.

  3. you see the distance from where the fish is and where the water is? that’s how long it took for the fish to turn from its live state to its fried state.. yum.
