Grandma wonton bbq pork-tossed noodle. Featuring grandma's secret bbq pork recipe, this popular Cantonese tossed noodle is served with Food@ServingLooksATL. Food Terminal is serving up Asian Fusion dishes in West Midtown Atlanta on Marietta Street. The path started with a vision by Amy at just fifteen years old selling noodles from a Malaysian kiosk. They are all about the fusion of Asian and Malaysian flavors and are located in a hip space with cool, industrial vibes. You will find a wide range of Asian street eats inspired by Malaysian dishes. I was very impressed by the full-color, magazine-style menu that showed exactly how each dish will be presented. It made ordering very efficient as there are a number of delicious dishes to choose from. Want to know what I tried at Food Terminal? Keep reading to find out!
