I thought this place was very disappointing, an obvious copy of the much, much better Antico. The pizza is closer to real, overrated Neapolitan pizza, but the aspects that I particularly don't care for, an extremely chewy crust and not so much attention to cheese or toppings. Antico's pizza is a whole other creature, an artful, inspired piece of perfection. Also, the salad at Fuoco is just particularly unenchanting and the Caprese pizza is nothing you will find it Italy and certainly wouldn't be looking for anyways. There are many better pizza places in Atlanta (Antico, Fritti, Varsano's, Nancy's, even Cameli's, etc.)
Ideally, the same trucks shouldn't be there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They should move around the city, or no, they wouldn't really be trucks. I am a big fan of food trucks/taco trucks, but as a vegetarian, I haven't had a satisfactory meal from one in Atlanta. Though, I'm crazy for the King of Pops cart.
Those noodles (pictured) were about the yummiest I've ever eaten.
Yep. Burritos are pretty unsatisfying in Atlanta. I'm from L.A. and still getting used to a life without decent burritos in Atlanta. I liked the salsa at Bell's, but the burrito was too gringo, and it's the same with the burritos at Raging Burrito. The best I've had is El Taco Veloz. They have a drive-thru and are open late. Their menu is short and sweet.
We had the buffet lunch at Udipi today and it was fantastic, an excellent mix of both Southern and Northern dishes. They also bring some delicious dosai to the table. I sampled nearly everything at the buffet and especially liked the pullav and several Northern-style curries. The place was packed very late on a Saturday. You should consider checking it out again and re-reviewing it.
