This Korean-owned bistro aims to provide pragmatic eats in large portions for breakfast and lunch. Think cheese-and-egg croissants and fried chicken with collard greens and squash casserole. For dinner, the menu is more upscale with Korean fare such as the seafood pancake -- a large round of fluffy egg batter stuffed full of octopus, shrimp, abalone and clams. As an added bonus, there are several private rooms for karaoke where one can sing "Love Me Tender" in Korean until 5 a.m.

If you're looking for baby-mild tacos or chichi surroundings, turn the car around and head right back to Midtown. El Taco Veloz serves up the real deal, albeit in dingy surroundings. A better beef-tongue taco would be nearly impossible to find, as would a creamier, more satisfying bean burrito. The barbacoa is extraordinary, whether rolled into a soft, steamed corn tortilla or packed into a flour one. Tacos are irresistible snacks whose $1.69 price tag makes sampling the whole lot easy. Eating one of the massive burritos feels a bit like making out with food, with habanero salsa providing a crowning, thrilling burn.

You have to have a heart for a restaurant that names its lunch specials after characters from "I Love Lucy." Little Cuba, the long-standing but little-known strip-mall restaurant in Chamblee, does just that. The menu features classic Cuban comfort food, such as slow-cooked pork, beef, and chicken served with mounds of yellow rice and a sea of soupy black beans, that is the Latin equivalent to mom-made meat and potatoes. Try the "Ricky," the combo half Cuban sandwich, or the "Fred," a complicated chicken asado for lunch. $ (Under $10)
This barn-shaped spot serves old-style vinegar-based barbecue, mostly pork, on a specially designed pit. You won't find any butts or shoulders, which are more greasy and don't absorb the smoke as well. Specialties include chopped pork sandwiches, pork ribs, Brunswick Stew and baked beans.
