There’s nothing quite like choosing to stay in but still getting to eat food from the best of Atlanta’s restaurants. And there’s something about these restaurants that make them taste especially good when you’re eating from the comfort of your couch. So settle in for a lazy night in, pull up your favorite delivery app, and gear up for an outstanding meal!
Skip the line and order Hattie B’s on UberEats! It feels like a Nashville Hot Chicken joint has popped up on every corner of Atlanta recently, and we’re not mad about it. If your taste buds are more tame, you can get the “Southern” (no spice) option or if you’re feeling daring, put your tongue to the test with their Shut the Cluck Up!!! flavor. Whatever you do, make sure you order up a side of their pimento mac and cheese!
Bangkok Station is the go-to when you just need some tasty Thai food and craveworthy sushi, ASAP! Is it weird if our favorite dish is their “Pearls of Bangkok” appetizer sampler? It’s filled with all sorts of tasty treats like Ka-Nom Jeeb, a steamed shrimp and chicken dumpling with a homemade black mushroom soy dipping sauce, and their Thoong Tong, these crispy rice paper golden bags stuffed with yellow curry chicken, peas and corn with sweet and sour sauce. Go for Pad Thai, a total classic, or try out their new seafood hot pot!
There’s nothing quite like a piping hot bowl of ramen, and JINYA has some of Atlanta’s best. Their spicy tonkutsu ramen will hit the spot, and their creamy vegan ramen doesn’t sacrifice on taste at all! The ramen broths are simmered in house for 10 hours for maximum flavor, but there are tons of small plates, baos, and rice bowls if ramen isn’t what you’re in the mood for. Locations in Buckhead, Sandy Springs, and soon-to-be Alpharetta.
Mirko has your back with affordable pasta when you’re feeling extra cozy. Fall right into a food coma with a big bowl of gnocchi or pick your own made-from-scratch pasta. Don’t skip out on their calamari appetizer. Mirko will have a dish everyone in your family will love! Locations in North Buckhead and Marietta.
Add a bit of spice to your night in with some Ethiopian beef tibs from Ghion Cultural Hall. You’ll love the injira, a light and fluffy spongy bread made with teff flour that seems to go well with just about everything. And although the official Atlanta Eats diet is more a steady IV drip of gravy and BBQ sauce than anything remotely healthy, we are huge fans of all the spiced vegetables. Order the Ghion Cultural Special for an array of food that’ll feed two!
We love their twist on traditional Indian fare–their tasty cuisine has us eating there NAANSTOP! Go for a rice bowl or their signature naanwich, which combines their fresh oven-baked Indian flatbread with your choice of protein and fillings.
A warm, creamy chicken korma made with a rich cashew cream or hot and flavorful chicken tikka masala are just what you need for a lazy day at home. Spring the few extra bucks for some bullet naan!
Szechuan at its best! This Buckhead spot is serving up delightfully spicy Szechuan Chinese food, a type of cuisine that’s known for its especially bold flavors due to its liberal use of and unique flavor of the Szechuan pepper. You’ll love the braised fish in chili oil and the craveworthy Dan Dan noodles!
