1) L’Thai Organic Cuisine

Dining critic Meridith Ford Goldman says, “L’Thai’s tom-kha is a silken bowl of sweet-yet-sour soup layered with the flavors of broth and coconut milk and peppered with bright cilantro, all highlighted by unimaginably fresh tofu. One sip, and you won’t need Calgon to take you away.”

I love the soup on Roswell Road in Buckhead at The Gallery Cafe. They have several kinds to choose from and I like them all. It’s been hard for me to pick my favorite. While I’m enjoying my soup I also enjoy looking at the art work by some of Atlanta’s talented artists. I even bought one as a Christmas gift for a friend of mine.

I discovered this place not long ago and I was passing by every day without notice it
The Gallery Cafe in the Tuxedo festival mall is the best secret place not so secret because it’s crowded and the soups are amazing. Just try recently the gumbo soup That’s gonna be my Thanksgiving!

2 Willies’ in Lawrenceville. Their chili is off the chain. Flavor in every spoonful. Just the right amount of everything. I average 2-3 bowls a week.
