Two new lunch spots are about to open. One in Buckhead. One Downtown. Both will accommodate your midday desires for noodle-y Asian things.
Great. On we go…
Let’s start with Pho King, pictured left and soft-opening Sunday.
The location: On Peachtree in South Buckhead. The scene: A dimly lit and wide-open house of noodles with a bar made from cinder blocks and some framed portraits of Vietnamese women making tea and rice. Perhaps one of them is the Pho Queen. You’re there for:20 types of pho, like rare steak and brisket and tripe. Unless you have a thing for: Vietnamese beef balls, as you so often do.
Now it’s on to East Wave Fusion, soft-opening next Wednesday.
The location: Downtown. Just sitting there. Waiting. The scene: A bright and airy fast-casual place with a long communal table, giant floating orbs and a large-scale mural of Taiwan as presumably seen from a fast-moving car. Because it’s kind of blurry. You’re there for: Pork banh mi and blackened-ahi-tuna sushi. Unless you have a thing for: Bubble tea and cheeseburger egg rolls.
