Living in Atlanta, while not my favorite place, does have it advantages. I enjoy good food; unique food, and you can find just about anything to fit your taste in the Atlanta area. Recently Tammie and I went out to lunch at a little restaurant over in old Grant Park, just across from the historic Oakland cemetery called Doc Chey’s Noodle House.
This Asian inspired restaurant had a menu that screamed my name and great Yelp reviews, but when we entered we were the only ones there, which definitely had us questioning our decision!
It didn’t take long for the place to fill up though, and by the time our food was brought to the table Doc Chey’s was packed!
Menus are by the door when you enter the restaurant, so you just walk up, place your order, and sit yourself wherever to enjoy your meal, which is brought out shortly.
I ordered steamed Shanghai dumplings to start off our lunch. These were handmade and stuffed with pork and ginger. Honestly y’all, I could’ve ate seconds and thirds of these delicious dumplings and skipped a main entree!
Since it was a chilly, rainy day I chose Thai Coconut soup with shrimp for my entree.
Y’all, it’s a huge bowl!
With red peppers, scallions, mushrooms, Asian pesto, chili oil and shrimp simmered in a coconut chicken broth this dish is packed with flavor as well!
Tammie enjoyed a bowl of Chinese Chicken Soup. It looked so good and she enjoyed every last drop!
As always I sipped water with my meal, but also added a pot of hot peach ginger green tea. The perfect accompaniment to this delicious lunch and the dreary southern winter day.
Doc Chey’s has three locations across Atlanta, and not only makes the perfect luncheon spot for the girls, but a great date night restaurant choice as well!
