Herban Fix, Atlanta

It isn't often that a restaurant blows me away with superb dishes, but that is the case with Herban Fix. Herban Fix opened in 2015 in Atlanta by Chef Wendy Chang and her partner to bring vegan pan-Asian to the city.

The restaurant is really nice. With incredibly high ceilings, beige walls, and orange chairs, you get the feeling of a big open space in warm environment. They even have private dining rooms on the second floor.  And I love how they have an open kitchen right in the back so you can watch the chefs at work.

The first night we went there was interesting. Me and my friend ordered two dishes to share.  The first one was the Curried Rice Noodle with Mushrooms and Seasonal Vegetables. It was loaded with broccoli, eggplant, tofu, squash, bean sprouts and green beans. It looked great, but had some odd off-putting taste. Regardless, we ate it, but couldn't identify the weird taste.

We also ordered the Crispy King Oyster Mushrooms Glazed with Sesame Soy Au Jus. This was listed under the entrees, but looked more like an appetizer. The deep fried mushrooms were atop wilted spinach with a delicious sesame sauce and sesame seeds. We loved it.

For dessert, we had the Carrot Cake. Goodness was this good. It had just the right moistness and the icing was rich and delicious. Great presentation too.

I left there satisfied, but I didn't love everything, so we gave it another shot. On the second night, we started with Sesame Ginger Soy Chicken and Shiitake Kebabs.  With green and red bell pepper, the soy chicken and shittake mushroom kebabs were as amazing as they look. It was a great start to dinner.

For my entree, I ordered the Seared Pom Pom Mushroom Steak. Over a bead of greens, they took pom pom mushrooms and formed it into a filet mignon-type dish. It was unbelievably rich and meaty. It's one of the best dishes I've had in a while.

My friend ordered the Soy Beef Noodle Stew with Asian Greens. His dish was as good as mine! Soy beef with noodles, greens, carrots and more in a delightfully tasty broth -- oh my.

And just like that we both got blown away with our food. There was no room for dessert this time. I'm so glad we came back. This restaurant is by far the nicest vegan upscale restaurant in Atlanta. The service was good, prices appropriate at $15 - $20 per entree, and the food was spectacular. Highly recommended.
