Sushi House Hayakawa

Tools

Authentically Japanese, from the pristine fish to the clean, spare light wood decor to the bottles of sake and sochu lined up behind the chef. Some of the best dishes are only found through word of mouth, such as the fabulous monkfish liver in ponzu sauce, or the salmon roe marinated in rice wine. The owner, Atsushi "Art" Hayakawa, is meticulous with his knife skills, slicing and dicing fish flown in daily from Japan. The restaurant only serves dinner, but stays open late — until midnight on Friday for those craving sashimi well into the night.
Chateau de Saigon

Tools

This Vietnamese/Chinese chateau cooks in both styles and does so with ease. The service is charming and the space is comfortably furnished, with a diverse menu featuring delightful meat and seafood dishes, Chinese noodle bowls, as well as classic Vietnamese bun plates.
Crawfish Shack Seafood

Tools

This is mainly a Cajun seafood restaurant whose owner, Hieu Pham, is a blend of Chinese, Cambodian, and Vietnamese. The customer base could as well be milling in the lobby of the United Nations. Pham is, as his menu says, obsessed with freshness. The “crispy-fried” catfish is perfectly crisp with piping-hot, almost-sweet flesh. Ditto for the jumbo shrimp, lightly battered and fried until they’re al dente. The menu also offers seafood and fish by the pound. You can buy these, along with fish, to take home raw, or the restaurant will cook them according to your instructions and you can eat them on the premises.
Chaparral Nightclub

Tools

Latino regulars down Coronas and sport cowboy hats in a club that features Tex-Mex and Mexican regional music. Also attracts a large clientele on Latino gay nights.
La Pastorcita

Tools

Good tacos and mariachi bands are what you'll find at La Pastorcita. Decorated in Mexican cliche, La Pastorcita dishes out savory mixed grills that, while good, will harden you arteries faster than you can say, "Dios Mio." All in all a decent place for south-of-the-border flavor.
Nam Phuong - Buford Hwy.

Tools

Vietnamese food is so much more than spring rolls and noodle soup, and Nam Phuoug offers a delicious education for those wanting to delve deeper into this beguiling cuisine. Its pho is some of the metro area's best.
Viet Tofu

Tools

Viet Tofu has a hot bar (great way to try new food), prepared foods, and a deli for banh mi sandwiches and bubble tea. It's takeout only, though!
El Rey del Taco

Tools

There are three components that make a taco superb: the tortillas, the filling, and the salsa. El Rey de Taco gets them all right. Pat yourself on the back if you're lucky enough to catch one of the tortilla mavens making handmade tortillas that emanate the unmistakable smell of fresh masa. When it comes to tacos, the chivo (goat) and cabeza (beef cheeks) are standouts, and the salsas – although limited – are pure picante perfection. A chilled glass of horchata (a drink made with cinnamon, rice, milk, and other ingredients) is a refreshing addition to your meal.

Tools

At its new location, Havana serves up all the expected Cuban staples. The black bean soup, the rice, and the sandwich are all classic excellence. Go for an empanada and gorge yourself on cheesy deliciousness, or try a batida (Cuban milkshake) if you have room.
The IRIS aka Rush Lounge

Tools

A staple of Atlanta's EDM nightlife scene. Seating is at a premium, but then again, you come here to dance -- to trap, drum and bass, dub step, electro, house and more.
Hae Woon Dae

Tools

Easy to miss in a drab strip mall just outside I-285, Hae Woon Dae serves some of Atlanta's most delicious and entertaining Korean cuisine, with bulgogi beef and other meat dishes charcoal-grilled in sunken cauldrons at your own table. The pickled kimchi sides come in so many colors and flavors you're bound to find one you adore.
