Best Place for Live Eels 

Ever since phyllo dough and truffle-oil risotto supplanted potato chips and mayonnaise-laden casseroles in the standard American kitchen, foreign and mysterious foods have become the mark of a culinary master. THE BUFORD HIGHWAY FARMER'S MARKET is an excellent place to stock up on Asian staples such as green tea ice cream, various styles of wooden and plastic chopsticks, prepared sashimi, handmade Japanese paper and woks. If you prefer dried squid to Slim Jims, then this is your spot. Watch eels swim happily in a tank before they wind up as Nigiri, and make sure you stock up on something called "Nice Breath Refreshing."

5600 Buford Highway, Doraville, 770-458-2296 .
