So I know a lot of you all travel, and if you travel from Indy, you’re bound to go through Atlanta at some point. And if you do, do yourself a favor and go eat at One Flew South. It’s not just good for airport food, it’s just good. If it existed in Indy, I would eat there all the time. I am now considering planning long layovers in Atlanta when I travel. Seriously,
Anyhow, there was a bunch of us, and I got to try a bunch of things. One of my favorite things were the poke tacos ($16). I am sure this comes as no surprise to those of you who regularly read my blog. But these things were so good and seasoned just right. There was lots of fresh avocado, daikon sprouts, a slightly spicy salsa and sea salt. So, so good. We ended up ordering about 4 orders for the table (there are three per order) because they were so popular. We also ordered some Cajun shrimp toast, which was interesting. The sauce was a spicy creole type sauce, but it also had a slightly Asian flair with sesame on it. The shrimp were pretty spectacular because they were cooked so perfectly. The bread had onion and bacon in it.
We had a sushi roll to share as well, and it was really, really good as well. It was the kamikaze roll ($16), which had tuna, salmon, and nigiri inside, and was served on top of a spicy mayo and wrapped in this interesting white soy paper. Simple, but just enough of a spicy sauce to make it shine.
I ordered the salmon hot pot ($24) for my main dish which had this really tasty and sticky unagi fried rice that was topped with some tofu, shitake mushrooms, some greens, and a miso broth. Oh yeah, and that beautiful hunk of seared salmon. Delicious. The flavors were deep and so good.
My daughter had the duck confit croquettes ($14). These were little balls of grits and peas with duck confit and topped with citrus, fennel slaw and yuzu vinaigrette. She liked them ok but didn’t think they were as good as everything else. She would pass on this next time.
My son had the specialty burger, the “Seoul Burger ($18),” which had bacon, kimchi, white American cheese and a special sauce. He had the sauce on the side. It came with fries and it was also delicious. Juicy burger, Brioche bun and nice crispy fries. But with an Asian flair. Totally worth getting.
We even had this wonderful yuzu tart for dessert, which hit the spot after a lot of rich and salty food. And having a nice dinner after a leg of traveling is a welcome break. Seriously, if you find yourself in Atlanta at the airport with some time to kill, check it out.
