This is the best black-owned soul food spot in Georgia, according to Travel Noire

Website curates top restaurants in each state, and an Atlanta favorite represents Georgia

“Soul food is unique because it has socio-political overtones and carries the burden of race. It’s a cuisine based on memory. It’s a cuisine founded in resistance, and it’s main technique is feeling and intuition,” Michael Twitty, an African American food historian and author wrote in his book “The Cooking Gene.”

Soul food can be found throughout the United States, and Georgia has no shortage of restaurants.

But, according to the digital publishing platform Travel Noire, one of those restaurants is a must-visit.

Travel Noire selected one black-owned soul food restaurant from each state for its “50 in 50.”

To represent Georgia, the website selected Busy Bee Cafe in Atlanta. Busy Bee’s website touts the restaurant as “Atlanta’s Soul Food Kitchen Since 1947.” It was a meeting spot for civil rights leaders after opening on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and continues to stay busy, serving up fried chicken and other Southern staples.
