4897 Buford Highway, Suite 113
Buford Highway has so many low-budget restaurants from Atlanta's immigrant populations that you could seemingly spend years sampling all the taquerias and pho houses. If the magnitude of choices of places and nationalities intimidates you, start with Penang, Atlanta's finest Malaysian restaurant and one of the most friendly, charmingly appointed spots on the road. Penang's kitchen hybridizes Malaysian and Thai culinary styles while providing flavors that will appeal to fans of Chinese and Indian food as well. But bear in mind that after trying items like the Roti Canai, Satay Tofu or Beef Redang, you'll be tempted to keep returning to Penang and never try its neighbors.
