Located in the Amigo Plaza, this Nicaraguan restaurant opens in the morning for hearty breakfast plates filled with eggs, rice, beans, and fried plantains with sausages or skirt steak and hot cups of cafe con leche.

30. Masterpiece

3940 Buford Hwy, Duluth, GA 30096

Masterpiece is a family-owned and operated Sichuan restaurant with dishes created by chef Rui Liu. From the Chongqing-style noodles and dry spicy eggplant to tea-smoked duck and shredded beef or pork with hot peppers, few things on the menu don’t come with a bit of heat. Masterpiece is worth the trek north from Atlanta and a great place to enjoy a family-style meal with friends.
