It's been a while since something got me as excited as I was during my visit to Jusgo Supermarket, which took over a former Babies "R" Us in Duluth. The food court has several types of Chinese cuisine that are rare finds in Atlanta.
The new Chinese restaurant delivers excellent Sichuan cuisine ITP—supple wontons in chili oil, a signature chicken dish that resembles chicharrones, and a crispy blue crab worth digging your chopsticks into.
New to Buford Highway, the hand-pulled and knife-cut noodles at Lan Zhou Ramen are not to be missed. (Not to mention they have excellent xiao long bao, too.)
According to most of my Chinese friends, finding good dumplings in Atlanta is harder than scaling the Great Wall. They would rather make them on their own. One friend, though, was more optimistic than the rest. Chef Ken Lim, the owner at Penang Atlanta, has been eating dumplings for thirty years, and he offered to be my guide for the afternoon. Lim first came to Atlanta in 1996 to help his uncle open Penang, and just last year Lim returned to the city to takeover the family business.
