Last Saturday we stopped for a quick lunch at Orient Express, quite randomly, on the way to Dekalb Farmers Market. "Oh hey, that place looks cool...time for lunch!" Located on railroad tracks in the Vinings area and situated in an old train car, this restaurant features three different rooms, each with its own distinctive atmosphere and cuisine: Chinese, Sushi, and Hibachi. I loved the decor in the sushi room. A feature wall was covered in cutouts of magazines, but from a distance it looked fancy. The lighting was interesting too, made of a paper dome covered with natural branches.

All I wanted was what we call a "Summer Roll" in Florida, but they had no clue what I was talking about. So I didn't order anything fancy...just a classic California Roll, Philly Roll and Crab Nigiri.
