The Real Chow Baby

Had lunch today at The Real Chow Baby.


It’s billed as New American Stir Fry, but it’s really DIY. Our waiter was a nice guy.

Why am I rhyming?

Food was good, but I’d stick to the on-wall “recipes” unless you don’t mind ruining your lunch by combining Thai Peanut sauce and Kung Pao.

I’d also advise getting a big bowl of ingredients so you don’t have to fight your way through the crowded lunch line twice in order to fill up.

    welcome to the crowd. Actually New American Stir Fry == Mongolian BBQ of which this town is seriously lacking quality.

    While the recipes are okay, be risky and roll your own.

    Maybe we could trade the Braves bullpen for some Mongolians to make Atlanta some damn good food! Seriously, we need some good Mongolian BBQ or at least someone to translate one of the signs on Buford Hwy so I’ll know which restaurant to try.

    Chow Baby is about it.

    the rest are health code violations awaiting discovery. For the most part if you want good asian food (korean is the exception, and some japanese habachi grills) ITP is where they all lurk. Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Mongolian.

    And for the most part Buford Hwy has nothing much, except a really good cuban joint at N Druid.

    I loved the Real Chow Baby when i went, and I think I did combine peanut sauce with kung pao (lots of peanut, little kung pao for kick)

    What is it with business establishments off-loading all the work on customers these days? I go to Kroger where I scan and bag my own groceries and now these people want me to develop my own restaurant recipes? Do they pay you to eat there?

    Does anyone think that it’s weird that at The Real Chow Baby you have to cook your own food, but have somebody else park your car?
