Fall in Georgia (Gwinnett) – 2022-10-29

It’s like nature flipped a switch this past weekend! Just a few pictures from a gloomy morning walk before events on this October Saturday.  Cloudy, sky-less days are actually very good for fall photography I’ve found.

Romanian Festival at Roman Orthodox Church Lilburn

Biserica Ortodoxa Romana Sfintii Imparati Constantin si Elena Romanian Orthodox Church “Saints Constantine & Helen”October 22, 2022  |  Lilburn, GA scechurch.org I went to the Romanian Festival at the church in Lilburn on an amazing autumn Saturday! Very welcoming people and the Rosa Atlanta Bulgarian dancers were really great and colorful. Had the delicious Romanian […]

Diwali Celebration at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir

Diwali Celebration at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir October 24, 2022  |  Lilburn, GA Here are some photos from the very impressive Diwali celebration last night. So amazing how this (and many other unique places) is all in our backyard of metro Atlanta. I didn’t use any of my big work cameras (since they don’t allow […]

Tofu House Book Chang Dong – Duluth, GA

2550 Pleasant Hill Rd​ #101 Duluth, GA 30096 Normally open from about 10am -10pm most days. As you can tell, I really like Korean food.  I think most in my family and circle of friends do as well.  There’s just something about the flavor for the Asian palate.  I could probably eat it every day […]

Arte 3 – Suwanee, GA

1291 Old Peachtree Rd NW Suwanee, GA 30024 Next to Gop Chang on Fire, Closes at Midnight I think this place might be our new birthday hangout spot.  Instead of spending upwards of $40 on a single small cake from Mozart, roughly $9 per waffle and ice cream combo could satisfy any sweet cravings.  My […]

Banh Mi Cafe – Duluth, GA

3512 Satellite Blvd NW, Duluth, GA 30096 Opens at 9am-8pm every day! I do love banh mi Vietnamese subs.  I once ate 5 on a college football game watching Saturday.  For some reason I kept on forgetting about this place 10 minutes from me, but instead would drive all the way to Lee’s Bakery down […]

Gop Chang on Fire – Suwanee, GA

1291 Old Peachtree Rd NW #205 Suwanee, GA 30024 Closed on Mondays, Opens from 4pm – 2am on other days! Gop Chang is down the road from me on Old Peachtree Rd in the Assi shopping center.  I remember when the grocery store opened ages ago and it was the only thing in the entire […]

Naan and Curry – Duluth, GA

3083 Breckinridge Blvd #210 Duluth, GA 30096 Only closed on Mondays, they do have a lunch Buffet, but best is ordering fresh! Where to begin?  I go to Naan and Curry a lot!  It’s usually on my weekly rotation up here in Gwinnett.  When I was a young person I didn’t like sushi or Indian […]

Don Pedro – Gwinnett County, GA

STATUS: Pleasant Hill one CLOSED! Buford Hwy Still Open! 1475 Pleasant Hill Rd Lawrenceville, GA 30044 There are 3 locations that I know of in Gwinnett.  I still can’t understand how this part of town is Lawrenceville! 🙂 The one we like going to (Don Pedro III) stays open forever.  On one day, the hours […]

Cafe Mozart Bakery

2790 Lawrenceville Suwanee Rd Suite 120 Suwanee, GA 30024 I think there are at least 6 Cafe Mozart bakery/dessert places in Georgia.  Scattered about the metro area, they can be found in stand alone buildings, inside Super H Marts, and nestled in the many Korean shopping centers in Gwinnett.  Much like every other coffee shop, […]

Boba Mocha – Duluth, GA

2628 Pleasant Hill Rd Ste 100 Duluth, GA 30096 Open Everyday from about 11am – 10pm Being Asian (Lao), we really don’t crave sweet stuff after every meal (besides fresh fruit) but it’s nice every now and then to find baked goods that won’t land you in a sugar coma. 🙂  The ample slice of […]

Paris Baguette – Duluth, GA

3492 Satellite Blvd Duluth, GA 30096 Open everyday from 8am onward! I like this place because it’s wide open seating without all the hustle and bustle and craziness of Sweet Hut.  However the shelves are often bare though.  Visiting in the evening there isn’t as much variety or quantity in the baked goods like Mozart […]

Danthai – Lawrenceville, GA

851 Oak Rd SW #89Lawrenceville, GA 30044 One of my favorite places for “home cooking” Thai food.  There is something to be said about comfort food from all cultures–nothing fancy in the presentation, the point is to eat and be happy. 🙂

The Gop – Duluth, GA

STATUS: CLOSED 2605 Pleasant Hill Rd #400 Duluth, GA 30096 I really like this place.  The meat tastes different than Gop Chang on Fire, but the sides are what makes this one stand out.  The other advantage is that there’s never really a long wait.

Lao Street Food – Lawrenceville, GA

Hello everyone. This year (and life) has really flown by. Cleaning up all my website stuff and thought I would migrate all the posts from my dusty food blog over here on my main site. STATUS: CLOSED 706 Grayson Hwy # 202 Lawrenceville, GA 30046
