Located in Gwinnett, Poetree is a cute Korean cafe with post-it notes along one wall where you’ll see a mix of patrons from elders to tattooed, artsy types. Because we’re suckers for tasty Italian and a perfectly fried porkchop, we're in love with their seafood pasta bowl with donkatsu. As a Korean spin on the Japanese breaded deep fried pork cutlet, this shareable entrée is served with linguini, tossed in a creamy garlic sauce with mussels, head-on shrimp, and clams. It’s good good. Plus, it’s served with banchan, which can be dongchimi kimchi or kkakdugi kimchi. We’re "those people" who add chili flakes to our pasta every time, so ask for the habanero chili powder if you want to spice things up.
