STAY WARM THIS WINTER WITH A FEW OF BUCKHEAD’S SPICY DISHES
If you’re one of those people who’s not afraid of a little heat, then get your taste buds ready. Buckhead may not be known as a hotbed of international cuisine with spicy dishes (as is, say, Buford Highway), but the neighborhood still has plenty of places to punish your palate.
If tacos are your thing, check out Yumbii’s new Brookwood Hills restaurant opening this month and grab a few fish tacos with an extra helping of yummy and spicy gochujang chili sauce that also goes well with its sesame fries.

Kick up the heat a few notches with one of South City Kitchen Buckhead’s Nashville-style hot chicken sandwiches. It’s about as true to Nashville-style as it gets: chicken battered in lots of cayenne pepper and spices, then fried and served with homemade pickles and white barbecue sauce on a bun.

But if you really want to test your taste power, Brookhaven’s Avellino’s Pizzeria has one heck of a hot pizza. The Alla Diavola (“the devil”) is covered in some of the hottest peppers known to man: the bhut jolokia (ghost pepper) and the red savina habanera, plus jalapeños and habaneros for good measure. This is not for the faint of heart. The menu says you have to sign a waiver before your first bite.
