From the moment the owner introduces herself as “Grandma,” you know Woo Nam Jeong is a special place. Grandma makes nearly every item at this Buford Highway homestyle Korean restaurant from scratch. Sizzling dolsots (blazing hot stone bowls) of Atlanta’s best bibimbap come spicy with kimchi or more subdued with a mix of braised mushrooms seasoned with sweet soy sauce (there’s even an oceanic version with squid or eel). Don’t forget to order the silky, water-boiled vegetable dumplings. 5953 Buford Highway
