If Harmony were a boat, I would swim fiercely to reach its safety. If Harmony were a book, I would read it cover to cover and carry it with me at all times for comfort. If Harmony were a restaurant, I would go there far too often for someone that lives 45 minutes away and eat all the foods and never feel shame because it’s my favorite restaurant in Atlanta. I’m not sure if I’m accurately relaying to you my emotions about this place, but if not, let me be blunt: GO THERE AND EAT EVERYTHING. You’re welcome and I told you so in advance.
PlantBasedATL had its February/March meet-up at Harmony and it was quite the success! We had about 30-40 people show up, with some first-timers to the restaurant and to the meet-ups. Including Courtney:
Courtney, I quickly learned, works at the Publix near where I live. She also knows my mom as “the woman who hands me candy bars that I have to hold until she leaves the store and then I have to give the candy bars to Bharti, the other cashier she loves” so it is indeed a small world after all. See those nuggets of fried yumminess to the right and left of Courtney? That is Harmony’s General Tao’s and it was my first time having it. Needless to say (though when have I ever felt the need to not say it?), they were fried bundles of doughy-crunchy-salty-sweet-tangy-heaven-balls.
The PlantBasedATL crew was there:
We actually got there early to set up (cough cough…order appetizers and eat them before anyone else came). The Harmony crew is sooooooo nice and gracious and the service is quick and always correct. They have the restaurant game down to a science. Allow me to introduce you to some of my favorite dishes:
This is my all-time favorite thing at Harmony. This is an entree but you can ask for it as an appetizer. Imagine crunchy-salty-spicy-fried chicken and you’ve got it. I crave it fortnightly.
Holly wanted to try this soup and we both thought it was delicious and tasty. The ham may take a little getting used to but the broth and noodles were delightful.
Friends, here’s a secret. Take a noodle and fry it and then add sauce and veggies. I believe that this may be the secret to life itself. Don’t quote me on that, though.
Daniel got the curry with vegetables and it was very delicious. I was lucky enough to take this bad boy home as leftovers (the key to this is to always bring friends with smaller stomachs than you, and therefore you reap the benefits).
We ordered fried dumplings, Won Ton soup, curry pockets, and more dumplings.
Everyone had a great time, met some new people, made future plans, and ate more food than we thought was humanly possible. If you haven’t tried Harmony and you’re craving AMAZING food, please go and invite me. I promise we will order way too much food and be happy that we did.
