Tag: The Real Chow Baby
A pan-Asian restaurant that brews a citrusy pale ale, a fresh Indian kitchen, the new Muss & Turners, and a Chipotle–meets–stir-fry fast-casual Mongolian restaurant
Mike Blum is taking a second stab at the build-your-own-stir-fry concept with One Rooster, which will open in late May or early June and serve Mongolian bowls and Polynesian cocktails.
A collaboration of the Real Chow Baby’s Mike Blum, Miso Izakaya’s Guy Wong, and executive chef Chris Lee, Yum Bunz opens today at 935 Marietta Street on the Westside. Originally slated to open this past February, Yum Bunz serves dim sum dishes like bao—steamed yeast dough buns with vegetables or meat—in a fast-casual format.
Yum Bunz, a fast-casual Asian spot serving steamed sandwiches called bao and Korean wraps called ssam, is set to open on the Westside next month. Mike Blum, founder of the Real Chow Baby, based the concept on a Chicago restaurant called Wow Bao and enlisted Miso Izakaya’s Guy Wong to help develop the menu.

ATL Food Chatter: April 11, 2011 (To receive the Chatter and other culinary tidbits directly in your inbox, sign up for our weekly dining newsletter)Chip Joyner, co-founder of The Real Chow Baby, and his wife, Carol, are examples of some of the younger restaurateurs in town who involve themselves in community service and philanthropy in some new and creative ways. They help support the City of Atlanta’s youth recreation centers with an ongoing program at both locations of the create-it-yourself Asian stir-fry concept. Last year, the Joyners donated over $7,000 to the city’s Centers of Hope recreation centers. Diners at their restaurants have been encouraged to include an additional tip on their bills that go directly toward the centers. In 2010, a nickel from every stir-fry sold was donated to the centers.
