Broths include beef, chicken, veggie, miso or herb and you cook your food in that---not bad place for quick chinese hot pot food--- lots of stuff to choose from to dip in the broth.....meatballs are really good!
This place just got a D- food score, so not recommended at this time.....12/11
Big time sports bar/restaurant with lots of pool tables and other fun and a full bar and grill menu with wings, steaks, chili, and other reputable bar food.....
As of November 2010 this has closed and is turning into something else.....
May 2011 reopened as Purple Rain.....have not seen the inside yet---
Every time I go into Haru Ichiban (mostly for lunch) almost everyone is speaking Japanese (a good sign!) They have really fresh and tasty sashimi and sushi, as well as specials such as teriyaki salmon (one of my faves!), eel, and other Japanese specialities. They have a full bar and delicious sakis
Mon-Sat lunch from 11:30 to 2:30
Mon-Sun dinner 6-10 (fri and sat until 10:30)
If in the area (an Atlanta suburb) definitely check this place out-----in a strip shopping center off Pleasant Hill Rd
Favorite Dish: Sashimi lunch special (includes miso soup and salad)
All sorts of soups and sandwiches, salads and baked goods like croissants and custard tarts...lots to choose from here---At lunch I get the Duet, half a sandwich, small cup of soup and a small caesar salad for $7.....The tomato basil soup is good!
The actual sign out front says "GA" and then there is a French flag, and then "Bakery" stuck in the middle of a strip mall on Satellite Blvd near Gwinnett Mall. The owner/baker is a very friendly guy when you can catch him not so busy---he gets pretty busy for lunch---he makes all the breads and sweets---my fave is the italian or the semolina---he makes a mean roast beef sandwich with this spread that has tones of peanut butter and sweet red onion that is much better than it sounds----also the coconut cookies are out of this world. I always try to use my pigeon french whenever I am there, and he takes it very well. :>
Favorite Dish: roast beef sandwich
They have private rooms here where you can eat as a family---Korean BBQ is done right at the table with little charcoal grills---you stick your food on skewers and cook it as long as you want.....try the duck or the spare ribs....great sides come to the table as well....
Favorite Dish: duck
Melting Pot has fondue---bubbling pots of cheese to dip bread and fruit into, and oil to dip meats, shrimps, chicken and veggies into until done....good salads and also chocolate fondue for dessert---dip fruit into melted chocolate! How bad can that be?
The prices are a little high, but this is a great romantic place for 2.
Favorite Dish: chocolate fondue
My opinion is that places like Applebees are for large groups who want to drink alot, or families who think this is a good night out. The food is OK and the prices are OK but it's loud and frantic at times....Just don't call me an old fogie.
Really good wings if you get them naked, not breaded, and the burgers are great if you order them medium rare and get the onion rings instead of fries. The TV's are on the channels you want, and the staff wants to please....Good beers available in Duluth...
Sweet Tomatoes is a chain buffet that I have tried at lunch---they sometimes have coupons for about $7 for an all you can eat buffet lunch including salad stuff, soups, potatoes, muffins, desserts, drinks, pastas and more than you can imagine. If this is your thing, this is a good choice, and family friendly!
This is a chain location for fondue, where you dip bread, veggies and apples into a bubbling pot of melted cheese, wine, and other goodies with long forks. They have 4-5 different versions of this, and then there is the hot oil fondue, where you dip beef, chicken, shrimp, salmon into hot oil to cook briefly, served with salad and fresh veggies, which you can also cook in the broth/oil. They have a selection of large salads as well for those who do not want fondue, a full bar, and then for dessert they have a chocolate fondue, with fruit to dip (MMMMM).
Fri and Sat 4-11
Favorite Dish: Chocolate Fondue!
Saigon Cafe's Duluth location is another favorite lunch spot when I am in this suburb of Atlanta. The Pho is a huge bowl of sweet beef broth with your choice of fillings, and they have other specials such as tenderloin tips with yellow rice, tomatoes, lettuce and more---the waiter helped me with suggestions on how to eat this yummy dish (he suggested stirring it up together and slurping it down!) I usually get the Pho, but the specials are wonderful as well. Usually lots of Vietnamese folk slurping their Pho loudly, which is a good sign for good food.....
Favorite Dish: Pho with rare beef
Fresh bread that is hand baked in each bakery-café every morning, this is the place to chill and relax in a nice comfortable chair in a friendly environment.
Favorite Dish: Italian Combo on Ciabatta
The Cafe Menu comprises sandwiches, soups, hand-tossed salads, beverages and for the young ones, a Panera Kids menu.
Cajun style cooking in a nautical themed restaurant, served in a comfortable, casual atmosphere. The menu consists of lots of fried and blackened foods. The fried seafood is popular, followed closely by the catch of the day and the different boiled specialties.
This restaurant is very popular and as reservations are not allowed, you can expect an hours wait at peak times.
