Tim's restaurant hopping turns up intriguing and satisfying bites - covering everything from street food to fine dining. He picks three "Best Bites" every week to share with Connect readers:
Mi Vida Loca
This partially hidden little Hispanic market also boasts some of the best authentic Mexican food in the city. I especially liked the Barbacoa Burrito, slow cooked beef combined with beans, rice, fresh cilantro, chopped onion and chunks of queso rolled in a flour tortilla. Drizzle salsa verde over the burrito for a touch of heat.
Sopes, tortas, tacos (of soft corn tortilla) flesh out a menu that features chicken, pork, beef and lengua (tongue) Weekends find offerings of menudo (tripe soup) and pozole.
143 E Montgomery Cross Road
This little, unassuming strip center eatery is home to some amazingly authentic and freshly prepared southeast Asian food. My favorite lunch lately is the Vietnamese Crepe - stuffed with bean sprouts, shrimp and mushrooms. Sides of crisp lettuce can be used to roll around shredded carrot, chopped daikon, sprouts and fresh cilantro for a "salad wrap" that's the perfect foil for the hot, fresh, rice crepe. I noticed chicken feet in black bean sauce on the menu - next time!

B. Matthew's Eatery
What a bargain! Two eggs anyway, smoked ham, a big biscuit with sausage gravy and a side of fruit makes Habersham and Eggs a value at $7.25 and a rib-sticker that'll last all day. Awesome coffee, comfortable setting, no pressure. Sunday brunch offers bottomless Mimosas or Bloody Marys.
325 E. Bay St.
