I've been proven wrong again. And I'm eating better!
About a year ago, I wrote a "first look" at Miso Izakaya (619 Edgewood Ave., 678-701-0128, www.tapanese.com) in Inman Park. Although I found the space charming, the food seemed to me to be a litany of clichés that could be found in just about any mainstream Japanese restaurant. That changed somewhat by the time Food Editor Besha Rodell reviewed the restaurant a few months later.
Now there's been a big change. I don't know what motivated chef/owner Guy Wong to move toward some very creative dishes, but the new menu is delightful. He has, for example, produced what amount to four Japanese sliders. He doesn't call them that, but that's what they are: sliders made with the delicate, melt-in-you-mouth buns popular throughout Asia. They are flat and Wong folds them over, pinning the bun and its contents together.

Love pork belly.
Some food just doesn't photograph well, even if it is tasty.
Nothing wrong with grease on the walls if the burger is tasty.
