Adventures in Atlanta's Chinatown

Last night I went on an adventure tour of Atlanta's Chinatown. It's a small area that I had never seen before, but lots of fun.  We started off with a seven course Szechuan dinner.  And in my quest to try new things- yes, that is squid and tofu below. 


And after our dinner, we went on a tour of Chinese grocery store, where I found all kinds of things I hadn't tasted before.  Like this grass jelly.


(I didn't buy this)  But I did pick up some Chinese New Year candies and other items.
And our final stop was a Chinese bookstore, where I was glad to see Steve Jobs translated into Chinese.

And we ended the evening in the tea room of the bookshop, we listened to a musician playing Mandarin Pop guitar music.  Lots of fun.  And looking forward to going back some time and bringing my friends.
