Atlanta foodies: What new hidden gems should the prodigal son not miss on a visit?

A few years ago I moved from Atlanta to a backwater nowhere with no food culture. I'm back for a long holiday visit and want to sample some foodie favorites that may not have been around when I was here, but which I also may have just missed. So, priority on the new but no points deducted for established.
I'm looking mainly for interesting casual places for a fun lunch or a casual dinner. I'm not really looking for nice sit-down places or good-but-traditional places. I want to find places that are doing interesting things. Or maybe some new foreign cuisine that has not had much of a presence here in the past. I like a place that has a counter and maybe a family works there. But it can go a bit nicer than that.
For example the last time I was here I was excited to hear about Hankook Korean bbq tacos on Collier Rd. The reviews were underwhelming enough that I didn't wind up going, but that's the right spirit.
What are the foodie underground buzz places lately? Extra points for the kind that a lot of people haven't really clued into widely yet.
Have a favorite food truck
I know I want to try Flip Burger Boutique while I'm here. Already aware of Ann's Snack Bar. Want to track down some food trucks. I'll eat anything. Hit me.
