Unusual Eats In Atlanta?

Dio Seijuro | Nov 15, 2007 07:36 AM

What are some places that offer unusual foods in Atlanta? I've been here for a couple years now and I am fairly familiar with the city, but would love to find out about places that offer unusual food.

I am a big fan of offal and all foods Zimmernish, of just hard-to-find. Love to try anything.

In Atlanta I have had all kinds of intestine dishes at a bunch of oriental restaurants (one at Tasty China has also pig blood chunks). Pig trotters. Goat curry (mmm...delicious). Yellow jack sashimi presented as the entire fish. Lots of beef tongue and wild boar sausage. I am going to try a seasonal Korean stew that uses haddock roe, soon. Have not yet had bone marrow or brain here, or any insect.

I'd also like to explore the obscure Mexican restaurants on Buford HW more. And what about some suggestions for great charcuterie and markets that serve food on the side (like Star Provision)?

Please recommend!
