Today we tell you where Guy Wong grabs a bite when he's not throwing down at Miso Izakaya or working on hotly anticipated new restaurant Yum Bunz (opening July 8) and a slew of other rumored projects. We're a little surprised he has time to eat at all, but here's where he does it when that time comes around.
I love going to Murphy's for brunch because it's like eating comfort food at a good friend's house. The corned beef hash and the eggs slum mulligan are my all-time favorites. But when the craving for something familiar calls, my family goes to East Pearl (Duluth) for dim sum. It's a place I grew up going, so it's become a family tradition to go there most Sundays.
Nothing beats a plate of Chinese roasted duck or roast pork from Sky BBQ (Duluth) for a quick bite during the week when my busy schedule only affords me very little time to eat lunch. Don Quixote (Duluth) for a smorgasbord of Korean dishes, such as noodles with rice cake and tonkatsu (pork cutlet), also hits the spot. I also like going to Assi Food Court (Duluth), Homegrown, and Farm Burger.
Sun in my Belly. I get two orders of the pork belly appetizer and make it my dinner. It's so good!
Bo Bo Garden (Doraville). Stellar Cantonese. And it's open late, so I can still swing by after I get off work at midnight.
Fancy night out:
Empire State South. Southern, hometown feel with amazing food. It's where I love to celebrate special occasions.
Favorite food-travel destinations (and where to eat):
NYC, Minetta Tavern and Ippudo
Nashville, The Catbird Seat
Birmingham, Hot & Hot Fish Club
