Re: “Cliff’s top 10 Atlanta restaurants for dining on a budget

I adore the food Ah-Ma's Tawainese Kitchen. As mentioned in the article, The Dirty Bird Bao is the bomb, even better when paired with one of their soups. If possible, they need to expand the interior, the available seating space is almost claustrophobic.

Re: “Cliff’s top 10 Atlanta restaurants for dining on a budget

Lots of good choices, thanks. I especially like Saigon Basil and Arepa Mia.

I'd also add Hankook Taqueria to the list.

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

First off, the proper terminology is 'palestinian Arab' and 'palestinian Jew'. The term 'palestine' used to refer solely to Jews, until 1967 or so, when the US adopted the policy of the Arab world by stealing it and using it to refer to Arabs only.

The Jews are indigenous to the region, and the only liars on the topic are the virtual jihadists here, supporters of Eichmann's helper Haj Amin al Husseini, the ultimate racists and fascists, bleatingly calling their Zionist victims these same names.

I like this list better than your previous ones. La Fonda paella is, however, glop.

Good to see that EATS and La Fonda are still up and going strong. They were once a week each mainstays when we lived in Candler Park in the 90's.

Re: “Cliff’s top 10 Atlanta restaurants for dining on a budget

Great list idea.

I'd throw Amazza, Noni's and Osteria 832 in the mix.

Re: “Cliff’s top 10 Atlanta restaurants for dining on a budget

Good stuff.
You want to impress a date; take him/her to one of these places. If they truly enjoy it and you have a great meal together then they're a 'keeper'.
(I'll take Little Bangkok over Bacchanalia for a first date)

Re: “Georgia-grown gifts

Buying pickles for presents is great if you have a job and money. I don't have a lot of money and I have no job but this week I made two medium size batches of my own pickles and the process was so easy, a child of five could probably manage it. I'm going to perfect and tweak my recipe and then give away jars of fresh, homemade pickles to friends and relatives. I also make a tasty Pico de Gallo with watermelon. I love giving presents to family and friends but a store-bought gift just isn't the same as a nice card or edible treats or even services to elderly or handicapped folks. Just sayin'.

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

One more time where the word racist is used to mean "any type of prejudice." All Jews, whether Europeanized (Ashkenazi) or Sephardic and all Palestinians (no matter their religion) are Semites - the same mother race is what they share for millennia along with Syrians and certain other N. African Arabs. Racism is the incorrect word to describe what is driving the hateful interjections.

I think tonight I'll go get a Reuben at G. Muir , all this talk about Jewish food. I grew up in NY so pastrami or corned beef calls me to the deli!

"This food is Palestinian, not Israeli. Stop believing the Zionist ideology that Palestine, its people, food and culture doesn't exist. Stop trying to erase this by calling it Israeli. This is horrendous, untrue and racist."

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

Wesleywhatwhat, brad kaplan,

Ginsberg is absolutely branding his food as Israeli.

"I didn't have the soul and the heart yet, understanding what modern Israeli cuisine was. Sure, I've read every single book from [Israeli restaurateur and cookbook author [Yotam] Ottolenghi, I was familiar with [Israeli restaurant] Zahav in Philadelphia, and there's a film called The Search for Israeli Cuisine that was another catalyst for me realizing I didn't yet know enough."

And it is so disheartening.

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

Fortunately America gives everyone choice. Jerusalem bakery (both locations in the Atlanta area) are owned and run by Palestinians. Most mediocre Palestinian food I've ever had (compared to NYC and Miami (yes there are Palestinians/Greater Syria immigrants that landed in hispanic countries & made it to the US).

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

Dear Todd: As you see your sandwiches have caused a terrible war of words to errupt behind the keyboards of the Palestinian community, each and every person commenting should be considered dangerous Yelpers waiting to wage a one star Jihad against your new venture. I suggest you change the name of your place to.....

INFIDELI !!!!

Re: “Q&A with chef Todd Ginsberg

"to profit from selling Arabic food, but packaging it as “Israeli” is racist and absolutely outrageous."

So I guess Chef Boyardee is Racist and Outrageous for selling his mini raviolis, which may seem italian but are crude replicas. lol

You are a MORON.
