Background on Atlanta Restaurants

As part of my trip to Atlanta, I did much research on Chowhound, Yahoo travel, and numerous guide books for recommendations on good restaurants nearby. I knew I wanted to eat at places serving food I couldn't get back home. That meant I was going to avoid sophisticated restaurants serving contemporary food -those are pretty much the same everywhere-. That also meant I'd avoid most cuisines from particular countries like Mexico, Thailand, India, Japan, etc. -- I couldn't imagine Atlanta having better renditions of those cuisines than I can find in the bay area. (My research, although it pointed out good restaurants of each of those types, generally seemed to support this conclusion.) Thus, Southern cooking was the main style of food left on my list. Thus, I was seeking comfort/soul food like fried chicken and barbecue.

 

I occasionally found myself violating my policies by heading to some non-Southern restaurants, mostly because I can get sick of eating fried food.

 

Context for this Particular Restaurant

For the life of me, I can't figure out how Souper Jenny made its way onto my list. I'm sure I chose it partially because it's convenient to the museum I was visiting. But I'm still not sure how the name of the joint crossed my path.

 

Souper Jenny Review

 

Souper Jenny is awesome. It served me fresh, healthy food in a quirky, eclectic, almost Californian atmosphere. In fact, it felt more Californian than most places in California that purport to be so.

 

For lunch, I had a good bowl of tropical gazpacho, a side of very fresh fruit, and a roll of nice multi-grain bread which was very light (unusual for multi-grain), much like a biscuit.

 

This movie captures some of the coolness of Souper Jenny.

 

Although Souper Jenny is located in a strip mall, the outside had a pleasant area for eating among trees.

 

My meal was $10, as are most (soup plus side plus drink combination).
