There's a good deal of Asian food to be had in Atlanta without resorting to heavily sauced meats & sushi stuffed with cream cheese. You might have to stray from the intown neighborhoods a bit but I promise that you'll be richly rewarded.
On the edge of Piedmont Park, skip the burgers & make a bee-line to the salt block menu for sushi flown in from Hawaii & mouthwatering wagyu. Beers are only $1 when it rains!
Skip your General Tso's and try Vietnamese cuisine for a spin that even gringos love. Start with spring rolls and end with pho & bubble tea!
Out of the many places to get bubble tea in Atlanta, the Lollicup stand inside of Pho Mimi remains the gold standard
Although large Asian groceries are prevalent in Atlanta now, the intimate environment of Tomato speaks to me. Definitely check out for their sushi grade tuna
A haven for Vietnamese food by day, So Ba flips the script at 10 and becomes the Octopus Bar at night. Adventurous eaters will be rewarded.
