A visit to Buford Highway

" width=

My friend Rose D'Agostino and I headed out Buford Highway last Saturday to scout for new restaurants and have lunch. We ended up at the always popular Pung Mie, one of the city's original Chinese-Korean restaurants.

We ordered steamed dumplings, green beans with pork and hot braised chicken (actually fried chicken).

The chicken has long been one of my favorite dishes in the city. It has a nice sauce, but you need to pour some rice vinegar over the chicken and scatter some of the mild chili powder over it. Both condiments are on the table.

Before lunch, we stopped at the White Windmill, a Korean bakery and cafe. Although its bakery (left) featured a lot of delicious-looking pastries, its sandwich menu was quite pedestrian. (Thus our leaving for Pung Mie.)

I remember that this space was originally a full-service restaurant where the manager once complimented my "very intelligent jacket" when I entered. It was not until I'd eaten half my meal that I realized she meant "very smart jacket."
