GA Voice - - Front Page -

Wa­gaya This Ja­panese del­i­cacy is not just good, it’s “I would eas­ily choose this as my last meal” good. And nowhere does it bet­ter than Wa­gaya. This win­ning com­bi­na­tion of creamy pork broth, firm ra­men noo­dles, ten­der pork belly, soft-boiled egg, and salty sea­weed is sure to warm the hearts of picky eaters and food­ies alike. Fin­ish it off with a spoon­ful of gar­lic sauce and a shot of soy sauce to take this soup to the next level.

Gli Amanti Della Carne

Amalfi Pizza Don’t be in­tim­i­dated by the Ital­ian name; this is sim­ply meat lover’s pizza. This thin crust pie is topped with sweet San Marzano sauce, creamy moz­zarella cheese, Neapoli­tan salami, meat­balls, spicy sausage, and Amalfi’s out-of-this-world house-made ba­con jam. The pizze­ria sur­rounds their two wood-burn­ing brick ovens and over­looks a beau­ti­ful Ital­ian-in­spired en­try­way, mak­ing the meal as am­bi­ent as it is de­li­cious.

Pineap­ple Jerk Burrito

Rag­ing Burrito Jerk chicken (or tofu), roasted red pep­per, rice, and beans are all wrapped up in this tasty burrito, but what re­ally makes the dish is the pineap­ple salsa top­ping. The salsa com­bines sweet­ness, fruiti­ness, and spici­ness to pair per­fectly with the Jerk sea­son­ing on the chicken. The per­fect ap­pe­tizer to ac­com­pany this meal is the to-die-for chips and gua­camole. The cherry on top: The restau­rant is lo­cated right out­side the MARTA De­catur stop, mak­ing it eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble.

and tastes. Shrimp tem­pura, snow crab, av­o­cado, cu­cum­ber, and tem­pura flakes make up this roll, and a smoke-salmon top­ping seals the deal. This spe­cialty com­bi­na­tion re­sults in an ex­plo­sion of fla­vor. The Ja­panese-Thai restau­rant is lo­cated in Lit­tle Five Points and boasts a warm and in­ti­mate at­mos­phere while still up­hold­ing the hip ec­cen­tric­ity char­ac­ter­is­tic of the area. Thai 5 and its name­sake roll are great for date night or Tues­day night.

Grilled Lamb Pinx­tos

Barcelona Wine Bar This Mediter­ranean-in­spired wine bar ditches meals for ta­pas – small ap­pe­tiz­ers and snacks to ac­com­pany your drink of choice. The grilled lamb pinx­tos reign supreme as the best ta­pas Barcelona Wine Bar has to of­fer. Al­though they’re ta­pas, these fla­vor­ful and ten­der grilled lamb kabobs, topped with cal­abrian pep­per romesco and yo­gurt, are sat­is­fy­ing enough as a meal. These pinx­tos can be ac­com­pa­nied by one of the 40 wines from Spain and South Amer­ica that Barcelona has to of­fer.

Lemon Pep­per Wet Wings

J.R. Crick­ets J.R. Crick­ets is fa­mous for hav­ing the best wings in At­lanta, but their Lemon Pep­per Wet wings take that fame to a new level. J.R. Crick­ets’ “Lemon Pep­per Wet” were fea­tured in sea­son 1 of At­lanta, the FX show cre­ated by Don­ald Glover, for good rea­son. These ten­der wings are cov­ered in both lemon pep­per sea­son­ing and Buf­falo sauce, re­sult­ing in a unique and un­matched fla­vor com­bi­na­tion and, dare I say, the best wings in At­lanta.

Pot Likker

Mary Mac’s Tea Room This ap­pe­tizer is an un­ex­pected treat. This turnip green broth and corn­bread com­bi­na­tion – com­pli­men­tary for Mary Mac first-timers – makes for a salty and de­li­cious side item. The broth is not enough for a meal, so add it to your Veg­etable Plate (along with the Bruns­wick Stew and col­lard greens) or Fried Chicken meal. 21+ can top off the meal with the Ge­or­gia Peach Mar­tini, made from real Ge­or­gia-grown peaches.

Asian Rib-Eye Beef Taco

Yumbii Food Truck This taco blends Asian and Mex­i­can cuisines to cre­ate a de­li­ciously sweet and sa­vory fla­vor ex­pe­ri­ence. This fla­vor­ful Asian beef taco is topped with Yumbii’s fa­mous Korean chili sauce and a soy-sesame vi­nai­grette salad. This taco can­not be eaten alone; it must be paired with their sesame fries dipped in chipo­tle ketchup. Be­cause this comes from a food truck, it may be trick­ier to track down. Luck­ily, Yumbii is one of the many ro­tat­ing trucks fea­tured at the At­lanta Food Truck Park.

Si­cil­ian Slice

Fellini’s Pizza Fellini’s is a cheaper and more low-key pizza op­tion, but that doesn’t mean they skimp on fla­vor or qual­ity. No mat­ter what top­pings suit your fancy, their thick Si­cil­ian crust is sure to please. Eat out­side on the pa­tio un­der string lights and en­joy sounds of wa­ter trick­ling from the foun­tain, or opt for in­door eat­ing and en­joy their in­stal­la­tion of some eclec­tic lo­cal art.

Eggs Rancheros a la Ma­jes­tic

The Ma­jes­tic Diner A per­sonal fa­vorite, this dish is sure to curb your ap­petite. Two tor­tillas are topped with scram­bled eggs, ched­dar, pep­per jack, and Chorizo sausage and are served with black beans, salsa, and sour cream. This meal is per­fect for any and ev­ery meal, and be­cause the Ma­jes­tic is open 24 hours, you can en­joy it at any time of the day. For the tra­di­tion­al­ists, their clas­sic break­fast items – like pan­cakes, eggs, and ba­con – are just as de­li­cious. There are few foods as ubiq­ui­tous, and peren­ni­ally pop­u­lar as the clas­sic dev­iled
