Thank god Shoya is not on this list. Their ramen is mediocre at best. The spicy miso at Umaido is absolutely delicious but yeah, it's far.
@notelonmusk I'm a native and Atlanta and you've do nailed it on the head. Shoya's ramen is awful. Umaido's the best but the hour drive makes me hesitant.
Where's Toscano & Son's?
@smitty "What Vietnamese place doesn't have 3 loaves for $1?"
This '3 for $1" has been a staple for vietnamese banh mi establishments. For Atlanta, I think it was originally started by Ba Le (now defunct) way back in the early 90s. And like any shrewd vietnamese business man, if the strategy worked at one est. then it shall be replicated.
Obviously sprawl is bad but at least its still relatively affordable. Improving "Quality of life" of life issues and making a city more 'attractive' tends to crowd out those who cannot afford the added premium on households in proximity to these improvements and amenities. Statistically speaking, these people tend to be lower-income, minorities. Maybe that's why Portland has lacked diversity when compared to Salt Lake City, Vancouver, or Seattle since the 1990s & 2000s?
unintended consequence of sprawl/poor-planning is Atlanta is still somewhat affordable in terms of housing. not saying much though given transportation/environmental woes here.
