Gavage March 2016 – Home Cooking

As a reminder, I’m a terrible “blogger” and can’t keep up with posts anymore. As I say in the “sticky” post at the top of my site, I mostly post to Instagram and Twitter these days. Though, I try not to spam social media, so I have a bunch of photos which never make it onto […]

FIG Charleston

At this moment I’m taking a short study break from some mid-terms I have due tomorrow for my graduate degree at Texas A&M (mostly online), which seemed like a good idea at the start, but is now the reason I now dread Sunday evenings, when the week’s assignments are due. But, I’m nearly half way through with the program, […]

Chicken Shack @ Shake Shack

Is the Atlanta locale the only Shake Shack in the world without a line? For years I’ve read about people waiting gleefully for hours in various lines in Manhattan, and I have difficulty reconciling those tales to my experiences at the Buckhead venue, where I have never been beyond fourth in line upon arrival. The Streets of Buckhead, or whatever […]

Sublime Donuts

It shouldn’t be anything new to anyone who has lived in Atlanta for a few years, but Sublime donuts can be off the charts delicious. I’m not a major frequenter of sweets or desserts, but every so often I get a craving and man, does Sublime deliver. On my most recent visit I was able to take a relatively […]

Chili in a Pinch

On Valentine’s day, I thought it appropriate to discuss my love for chili. Chili love is just like real love. It warms the soul and the stomach. The spice can make your heart flutter and race. It’s rich and messy, and yes, there are times chili love will hurt you, but you know it doesn’t mean it. The indigestion…maybe even some […]

Food Delivery Thought

With the introduction of Uber style delivery services, I wonder if there are new food business models coming our way? When food trucks became a thing, it meant you no longer needed a brick and mortar restaurant, and the expense that comes with it, to serve the food of your dreams. Proliferation of a dynamic food […]

Smoked Prime Rib

Just a brief post from the cooking files – smoked prime rib roast. There’s nothing like a well prepared hunk of meat to serve as show-stopper for a dinner party. This beef roast was covered in a generous amount of salt, pepper, and fennel pollen then it rested in the refrigerator for a number of hours. Before cooking it came to […]

Bone Garden Pozole

Bone Garden Cantina is very close to my home, and I find myself enjoying it more and more, and subsequently craving it more often. I live even closer to Nuevo Laredo, but to me Nuevo only satisfies a specific craving – when I need a bunch of chips and salsa and some sloppy Tex/Mex food. I like Nuevo, […]

Site Status

Life is busy. I only post here roughly once a month, out of sheer grit and embarrassment. This site may not even have any Atlanta food relevancy anymore, though I still enjoy the dining and cooking and the friends I can make the time for these days. Restaurants open with a frequency nearly impossible to […]

Thai, Sichuan, Ramen

  Cooking and eating Asian foods seems to be pretty common amongst the big food nerds. It’s something different; maybe more interesting flavor profiles, atypical spices, bright or funky flavors, and more varied cuts of meats than the average white kid in the US eats along side their boxed mac ‘n cheese. The food-stricken are always seeking the […]

Beaver Creek Biscuit Company

One of the fun/maybe insane things about eating and cooking a lot is the eventual formation of strong opinions about minute topics, such as the thin vs thick burger debate, Antico pizza (I’ve had a good one or two, but I’m generally against it), whether or not you should buttermilk soak fried chicken (and can […]

Moonie’s BBQ, Again

Hands down, the best brisket in the ATL area continues to be in Flowery Branch at Moonie’s. I’ve written about them before. In true Texas style you can just get a few slices of meats by weight. I stopped by at 3PM on the way to North Carolina when there was no one there and […]

Ginya Izakaya

Ginya Izakaya, sister restaurant to Doraville’s Shoya Izakaya is now open on the Westside (Berkeley Heights), in the old Cardamom Hill location. The restaurant is smaller, but the menu is not. It’s the same expansive selection of ramen, sushi, rice bowls, kushiyaki (skewers, basically yakitori but yakitori implies chicken, kushiyaki is more expansive), and sashimi. […]


It’s lame that I want to start every post I write with an explanation of why I don’t post anymore. I always hated reading blogs that do that. I’m trying to find ways to juggle family life, grad school, and work, and I’m making some progress. I even got to cook this weekend – breakfast for […]

Red Eyed Mule, Muss & Turner’s, Foxeria, Umaido, Nduja Pasta

Hey there. Been a minute. Here are some things which are delicious I’d like to talk to you about.   The Red Eyed Mule in Marietta. One of the best southern breakfasts in town. The grits are cheesy and creamy, sausage is flavorable, and the biscuit is the wonderful sweet, fluffy type that puts Chik-Fil-A […]

Little’s and Homegrown

Some of my favorite dining experiences are super casual. I tend to get more excited to hear about a hot wing shack on Marietta Street with a line of people out front, than I do that Ford Fry will be consulting on the new bar/restaurant in the Four Seasons. It’s not my side of town, […]

Caribbean Chicken & Fish / Quickly

This week I visited two places that have been on my “wishlist” for years now – Caribbean Chicken & Fish, and Quickly. I first read about Caribbean Chicken & Fish on Chowhound, via a post by Steve Drucker, whom I don’t know personally, but he was one of the first, if not the first person, […]

Summer Pasta

One of my favorite summer dishes to make is a kitchen sink pasta based on a technique I learned from a Michael Ruhlman video a few years ago. The basis is that you chop up some ripe tomatoes and let it sit (unrefrigerated) a while so the liquid draws from the fruit, offering up a beautiful tomato water. This water serves as the starting point for […]

Central Texas BBQ – Snow’s, Kreuz, Black’s, La BBQ, Louie Mueller, more…

For more than six months, I’ve been wanting to post these photos, but haven’t found the time. Wait, time isn’t found, it’s made, as my father reminds me. He being the likely source of my fastidiousness which fuels the type of person (A/INTJ) who spends a month writing spreadsheets and plotting maps for a dude’s trip around Central Texas with a […]

Jet’s Pizza

Until recently I’d never tried Jet’s Pizza, a small chain out of Michigan with some locations around Atlanta. I’d never even heard of them until my brother told me about them, as there is one near his home in Smyrna. They have all kinds of pizza, but the square cut Detroit style is what we’re here to […]
