Kennesaw/Town Center area

We were famished as we headed off to Chattanooga. It was late and we were beyond starved when we hit Kennesaw, Georgia off of I-75. Looking for a decent yet quick meal is a tough task to handle on a Friday night in this area. Your typical Olive Gardens,Chili's and Outbacks are packed -- not that I'm thrilled to go to those places, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

After negotiating our way through the crowds, we worked our way to the back of a shopping center on Barrett Parkway. We stumbled upon Kuroshio Sushi Bar and Grille which is open on Fridays from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. The challenge came with our child who is not exactly a fan of Japanese fare. The helpful waitress and manager help her find a scrumptious noodle dish. I had the chicken teriyaki. My wife loved the sushi. For the throngs of you out there who go down I-75, get off at Barrett Parkway to find this sushi institution.

Kuroshio saved us from the wrath of chain restaurant food for one evening and we are forever grateful. If you are interested in checking them out, Kuroshio is at 840 Earnest Barrett Parkway, Suite 500 in Kennesaw. Their number is 770-499-7160. Email them at:
