Bistro New York

Tools

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.
Canton House

Tools

Canton House is the favorite for dim sum in Atlanta's Chinese community. We're not surprised. Few dim sums are operated with such efficiency and such a broad menu. Anything made with shrimp or barbecued pork is bound to please even the most unadventurous diner. Get the rice cooked with pork, wrapped in lotus leaves. The fragrance when it is unwrapped is worth the price.
El Señor Taco

Tools

This place is all about the fish. Seafood comes in enough variations to satisfy whatever craving you have. At less than $2 per taco, you'll be in, out and full of deliciousness in no time without spending a ton of cash.

Tools

This chain is celebrated for its authentic, low-priced Mexican fare.
El Taco Veloz - Doraville

Tools

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.

Tools

Classic ingredients such as quality steak, fresh seafood, and staples such as starchy potatoes, yucca and rice, and plantains are all flavored judiciously with garlic, cilantro, and vinegar. Nothing is small. The ingredients are left to shine -- there are no spicy sauces or curious condiments served here. Bear in mind the restaurant closes at 8 p.m. nightly. $ (Under $10)

Tools

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)

Tools

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.
Penang Malaysian Cuisine

Tools

A clever, classy take on the crossroads cuisine of Malaysia, one of Asia's sleeping tigers. Whole fish with Thai sauce, pancakes with chicken curry, satays, noodles and crisp vegetables — all with a moderately spicy kick — are authentic, approachable and well-prepared. The setting, a bamboo summerhouse with all the latest conveniences, matches the upbeat, sunny ambiance.

Tools

New York-style pizza by the slice, calzones, pasta, meatball subs and more.
Rincon Latino

Tools

Stop by this Salvadoran restaurant for pupusas, a specialty from El Salvador. They are made of corn and often filled with cheese and meats. Outstanding flavor for only a couple of bucks.
Royal China

Tools

Although the Cantonese cuisine is highly erratic, the elegant decor and new restrooms make a visit almost mandatory for old hands. On balance, try dinner rather than lunch, vegetables and seafood over meat.

Tools

In a neighborhood permeated with Asian and Latin eateries, Vintage Pizzeria provides a taste of good, old American grub. While the sauce lacks punch, pies like "Carmen's Own" yank you into the past.

Tools

Sushi and Thai cuisine "with a twist" are the specialties at this North DeKalb destination.
