Ai Tunes Karaoke Lounge

Tools

The floors and couches in the private rooms at this karaoke joint glitter with green lights. The rooms are large and temperatures are kept low for when you work up a sweat belting out Whitney Houston's "The Greatest Love of All." Song selection here is disappointing — no deep cuts, and relatively few recent hits. You'll have to stick to the standards. The front of this massive space houses a glistening bar and dance floor that stays mostly empty. Also, hookahs if you want ’em.
Ashiana

Tools

Offering authentic Indian cuisine and buffet. Space doubles as a banquet hall.

Bento Cafe

Tools

Colorful orange signage and manga-inspired illustrations pepper the space, which feels more like a cool converted warehouse in the heart of a major city than a restaurant in a Norcross strip mall. Bento is of Taiwanese descent for its hard-to-find home-style dishes and real-deal street snacks.
BonJuk

Tools

This recently opened Korean restaurant is an outpost of a Korea-based chain that specializes in a porridge that bestows health benefits and promotes well-being.
Boudreaux's Café Acadiana

Tools

This Cajun restaurant was voted best seafood in Gwinnett in 2012 and 2013 in the Best of Gwinnett awards. It serves authentic Louisiana Cajun cuisine such as its grouper evangeline, gator po'boy, gumbo, and more.

Those of you familiar with Mexican preparations won't have a problem ordering from the menu written only in Spanish. Forget the tamales. Head for the meaty tacos and the messy-in-all-the-right-ways tortas. Take out or dine in. Cash only.

Entering the colorful restaurant feels like you've accidentally stumbled into a teen girl's bedroom. The walls are covered with hearts, cartoon faces drawn in marker, clusters of neon Post-its doodled by happy customers. Groups of fashionable Koreans huddle around tricked-out tabletop burners where dishes are cooked and served by the frenetic all-girl staff. No table is without an order of kimbob, large slices of Korean sushi filled with tender curls of spicy octopus, or bulgogi (seasoned beef rib-eye). Kimchi fried rice topped with unorthodox ingredients -- such as melted cheese -- sounds odd, but the first grease-laden bite is revelatory. Korean cold noodle fans should check out the jjol myun, a heaping bowl of rice noodles finished with julienned vegetables and spicy sauce. Order enough food to give reason to linger and let the cheerful spirit soak in.

The decor may leave something to be desired, but Gwinnett County's DanThai is worth seeking out for its less than $10 entrees. Fans of fiery ethnic food will delight in the spicy eggplant with shrimp and the festival noodles' startling fusion of anise and pumpkin pie spice with fish sauce tang.

East Pearl

Tools

A ski lodge in Duluth may seem like the least likely place to find some great dim sum, but appearances are deceiving. With pork siu mai dumplings, silken tofu drizzled with a tangy ginger sauce and somewhere around 170 more exotic offerings, East Pearl will satisfy the dim sum lover every time.
El Taco Veloz - Norcross

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.
Grace 17.20

Tools

The taupe dining room, suggestive of California wine country, feels relaxed at lunch and casual-swanky at night.
