Boys Love Buns at Yum Bunz

Boys Love Buns at Yum Bunz

It is slightly disconcerting as a mother to hear your 2-year-old son exclaim he “loves buns,” but I have to concur after visiting the recently opened Yum Bunz in West Midtown. And while dim sum is nothing new (it dates back over 2,000 years), I am confident that Yum Bunz will bring dim sum to more of the masses. Continue reading

The Working Man’s Lunch at Pita Palace

The Working Man’s Lunch at Pita Palace

My Little Foodie is a hard working little man. In fact, he has been earning his keep since he was 6 months old. Now you might be wondering how this could be, given that his father is an employment attorney who should know something about Georgia’s child labor laws.  I, however, am a psychologist who … Continue reading

Dim Sum for Dummies at the Oriental Pearl

Dim Sum for Dummies at the Oriental Pearl

Fast-paced and frenetic: how I would best describe both Dim Sum  at the Oriental Pearl on a Sunday afternoon and my almost 2-year old Little A’s personality. The frenzied parade of carts stacked with bamboo steamers circling around large tables with spinning  lazy-Susans is a perfect match for my little man.  It offers variety and … Continue reading

The Modern Deli Sails Into Atlanta With The General Muir

The Modern Deli Sails Into Atlanta With The General Muir

A dear friend of mine always questions my obsession with deli. She frankly doesn’t get my passion for a good bowl of matzoh ball or kreplach soup, nor does she share my appreciation for a real pastrami or corned beef (I’m not talking Boar’s Head) sandwich on rye. As a Jew, it is so engrained in my culture and my history. Too me, it’s like questioning a Mexican’s love of tacos or an Italian’s love of pasta. Deli is simply a part of my DNA, as well as My Little Foodies’. Continue reading

All About Community at Café Jonah and the Magical Attic

It may be hard to find a better way to support the community than by dining at Café Jonah and the Magical Attic. Conceived by the iconic Jenny Levinson of Souper Jenny, our family has come to love this cozy lunch and brunch spot in the heart of Buckhead. Jenny has given the Atlanta community so much in terms of “real food” to feed our stomachs and souls, and Café Jonah is just another example of how she gives back to the community. Continue reading

Nothing Says “Happy Birthday” like Sublime Doughnuts

Nothing Says “Happy Birthday” like Sublime Doughnuts

If you’re a parent of young children like me, you may have a strong sense of deja vu spending your weekends at gymnastics and bouncy house parties with lunches and dinners (typically on the same day) filled with mediocre pizza and Publix birthday cake. Once we whip out a box of Sublime Doughnuts in lieu of cake, both children and parents eagerly bite into a fresh smores, butter toffee, orange dream, dulce de leche, or the signature A-Town (similar to Boston) cream. Continue reading

An Authentic Mexican Breakfast at La Kermex Restaurante Mexico

An Authentic Mexican Breakfast at La Kermex Restaurante Mexico

Some of my fondest memories as a child involve sharing immense Mexican breakfasts with my family around the table in Acapulco.  Since lunchtime was usually not until late afternoon (immediately followed by a nice long siesta), this was our opportunity to fill up on the freshest Mexican cuisine. I still remember the large breakfast room … Continue reading
