A once culturally exclusive dish, latkes (aka potato pancakes) have become a widespread favorite food item, even across the southeast. This flattened mix of grated potatoes, eggs, onion and matzah meal resembles a traditional hash brown, but is totally elevated with the addition of applesauce, sour cream, smoked salmon and more! As the popularity of latkes has risen, so has its appearance on restaurant menus across the city. Atlanta Eats has scouted out our favorites and gives you the menu name so you don’t have to chase down these delicacies!
