BuHi Eats: Tostones

BuHi Eats: Tostones

I’ve been trying to get to this place for a while now and I finally got my firefighter buddy to go with me. It’s right on the corner of the 285 exit and it’s easy to miss. I’m not even going to attempt to tell you how to get there — I wasn’t lucky enough to be born with the direction gene, sadly. Now, let me tell you a few rules about this place:

1. If the server tells you to get the special, by golly get it! Repeat: GET IT.
2. When you ask the server about a dish and she reluctantly tells you she hasn’t tried it, do not feel adventurous. Trust me. And trust her, she knows.
3. Drink water. My Diet Coke tasted like Pepsi. The refill tasted like Cherry Coke.
4. The Cuban Sandwich is really, really, really fantastic.
5. If you’re hungry at 4AM on a weekend, you know where to go.

Like I said, get the Cuban sandwich. The roast pork is heavenly– tender, moist, flavorful. There’s some non-overpowering mustard which I liked and a bread that would knock your socks off. You can order a half portion to go with your meal. But really, get the whole. You can thank me later.

The Picada. It has everything the kitchen has. Ropa Vieja, chicken, arepa, yucca, empanada (which was so good, by the way), gold potatoes, fries, sausages (delish), and chicharrones. This is a humongous plate and the menu says it’s for 2 people for $23.95. It’s an awesome deal if you can’t decide what to get. Just remember, two people get a plate each. The menu doesn’t say it but you can order half (or one plate) if you like.

There. Now go there and get whatever is special that day AND the Cuban sandwich.

Oh, before I forget… Another tip: the speed limit on this part of BuHi is a slow 35mph. Doraville PD is ruthless and will stop you for going 5 miles over that limit. Just like what happened to @takethoufood a couple of years ago. Right, SB? :p

Korea Garden (Buford Highway)

Korea Garden (BuHi)

Just a quick post about this new addition to our Korean dining scene. This one opened a few months ago right before winter and sits next door to Cafe Mozart. It used to be First China restaurant. The menu is extensive and includes almost all mainstream Korean dishes.

Korea Garden (BuHi)

I’ve been here a few times. Banchan is good: tasty, fresh, good selection. Dumplings are your regular frozen then fried variety. But at $4.95 per order of five huge ones, it’s a great deal. The soy-sesame dipping sauce is wonderful, however.

Korea Garden (BuHi)

Soups are okay. They’re a little on the thin side but will do in a pinch. They do come in bigger-than-usual and bigger-than-everywhere bowls. The bbq meats are pretty solid. Rice dishes are decent.

I’m grateful we have another place to add to our pool of Korean restaurants to choose from. Prices are on the cheaper side, too, so you can hit it several times a week.

BHFM Food Court

At last, the long-awaited food court finally opened earlier this year. I had high hopes, thinking it would be as awesome as the one in Your Dekalb Farmers Market or Great Wall in Duluth or Assi Plaza in both Duluth and Suwannee or even Super H. But, alas, such is not the case here.

The food court is in its early stages. I see considerable space for expansion where other stalls can be rented out. For now, there are only three spots to eat from. The main one is the cafeteria-style food stall. They have Eastern European dishes as well as Korean, Southern, Indian, and Hispanic. The food is ok. They’re not as delicious as YDFM where every single item is amazing. It’s just passable here.

One of the stalls is the Delimanjoo joint. It’s those yummy creme-filled tiny doughnuts baked in the premises. It was a mainstay from the snack bar that was around since the market opened. These has been my favorite for many, many years. (Sorry, no photo.)

The other stall is a Creperie. They’re exactly like the ones on the streets in Europe. They have both sweet and savory flavors.

Everything here is take-out only. There’s a huge eating area right outside the cashier stand if you want to eat before you leave. The cafeteria food is sold by weight. The other stalls sell per item. Be careful with the amount of your selection. My tiny lunch, crepe, and a bottle of soda came to close to $20. That’s highway robbery! You could go to a nice sit-down meal at a nice restaurant for less than that. Consider yourselves warned.

Bread is my kryptonite. You know how some people absolutely must have dessert? I’m like that with bread. Slathered with butter and I’m in heaven. Well, I was in this new tiny plaza on BuHi near Shallowford Rd. And I smelled fresh-baked bread. They bake the breads in the premises!!! Mexican breads and pastries including pork tamales and snacks. Breads are soft and chewy. Go around 3PM when the baker puts all the goodies out. Yummmmm.

Fil-Am Star Cafe & Bakery

Got a chance to check out this new Filipino place on BuHi. It’s located inside Asian Square in the old Saigon Deli location across from Quoc Hong. My good buddy-slash-older brother G2 G1 and I went on opening day and it was a madhouse. It took over an hour for our food to arrive and even the table next to ours never got some of theirs. Odd because it’s not like they had to cook our order from scratch. They were mainly stews.

Fil-Am Star Cafe

Anyway. The lunch menu is limited. It’s what they have on special that day and it’s usually about 4 or 5 items daily. The dinner menu is more extensive. We got the Adobo, Caldereta, Pancit Palabok, and Lumpia. The adobo didn’t really have that salty-sour flavor it’s well known for. I realize there are many versions but there are versions that are really good. I’ve had great ones in New York and California. It’s ok here. But it didn’t really make me go wow.

Fil-Am Star Cafe

The Caldereta had fork-tender pieces of beef. It tasted like regular beef stew. Friends have told me that this is prepared with mashed liver to thicken the sauce and make it taste bolder but G2 and I agreed there wasn’t any. I did like the roasted potatoes that they added as a nice touch.

Fil-Am Star Cafe

I liked the Pancit Palabok. But you have to eat it fast or the noodles get gummy. The sauce is thick and flavorful and the crushed pork rind gave it that amazing crunch.

Fil-Am Star Cafe

Sadly, the eggrolls (Lumpia) that were a beautiful golden brown, were undercooked inside, a common occurrence when you deep fry with very, very hot oil. I would’ve eaten it just the same but the filling had pork in it, and, no, you don’t want to eat raw pork.

I would definitely go back to try more of the menu. But I’d wait a couple of more weeks when the kitchen has had time to accommodate an influx of people.

Menu here.
Gene Lee of the AJC has a great description of the dishes as well as pictures here.
