Punk Foodie’s Guide to Underground Dining July 15-17

Head to Gato in Candler Park for one last Taiwanese brunch for Mighty Hans before moving on to dinner service in August.

On this weekend’s Punk Foodie Underground Dining Calendar, you’ll find a total of 119 (and more) underground dining venues with 63 ITPs and 56 OTPs. You can also split the popups by region: Decatur area, West End area, Midtown West area, and various ITPs. For OTP, see East and Northeast, Northeast Way, West, Northwest and South.

This weekend if you want eatmorekhmer back to that in Jonesboro for a very casual Friday-Sunday afternoon to late evening pickup. You can also head to John’s Creek to bowlshi which hosts the Khmer takeover on Saturday.

If you want Taiwanese, it’s best to head to the gatoatl in Candler Park where @itsmightyhans host a final brunch before the gigisitaliankitchen moves to the venue full time. Mighty Hans will be sharing more information about their August dinner dates soon.

On Saturday there is a host of interesting collaborations including a Mexican + Filipino event at eventidebrewing with barangayatl, threeelolasbakeshop and gorditasatl. Boys from eatphocue head to contrastartisanales for the annual Smoke Ring festival where they will serve dishes created from smoking whole boar on the premises the night before. In addition to their Vietnamese creations that will come from that, bravewojtek tags along to offer his Polish interpretations.

Saturday night Home Depot’s thdbackyard hosts a movie night with a lineup of chefs including @parlaysavorysaloon (soul food), Mexican sistahritas, sluttyveganatl (vegan), iriemoncafe (Jamaica) and many others.

Finally on Saturday, head to Underwood Hills to roundtripbeer for a Pilsner Patio Party where secretpintbbq will serve up a full menu of New School GA BBQ including beef ribs and hot Oaxaca sausage, plus other specials that will pair nicely with Round Trip’s German-style pilsner, Keeler Pilsner , New Zealand-style pilsner, side pur pilsner, champagne brut pilsner (did we mention it’s a party pilsner?)

Check out the deets below for all of these events and check out our calendars (ITP & OTP) for our full coverage of pop-ups happening around town and our Instagram account for constant updates.

And, as always, if the weather isn’t right, check the chef and venue’s Instagram accounts to make sure the action is up.
