With so many of our favorite places in close proximity to Green Olive Media Atlanta's office (Taqueria del Sol anyone?), we sometimes forget that there are new / different places that we need to check out so we don't get too far into a rut. I made an attempt last week to have lunch at places I've never been to before. The results:
Monday - Roy's Cheesesteaks
I'd heard a lot about this place having 'authentic Amoroso rolls imported from Philly,' Tastykakes, and of course, Cheez Whiz. While my only experience with a cheeseteak in Philadelphia was in the airport there last week (not recommended), I'd guess that this one was pretty authentic.
Tuesday - Hankook Taqueria
With the popularity of Kogi, it was only a matter of time before the Korean/Mexican trend hit Atlanta. I was thoroughly impressed with Hankook...even the tofu taco was good.
Wednesday - Key West Seafood Market

Friday - Taqueria del Sol
