From guacamole to cheese: The most dippable dishes in Atlanta

The black truffle cremini mushroom dip, an indulgently French onion-y cream cheese mixture, could almost serve as a centerpiece. Curled-edge strips of malanga root, lotus root and boniato in pale hues stand tall in a piped-ruffle cloud of the dip.

Chips. Dip. A match made in heaven, really. Whether that dip is onion, cheese or crab, it just works. Here are just a few our favorite dippables around Atlanta.

1341 Moreland Ave SE, Atlanta

This delightfully divey spot on Moreland has captured the east side of Atlanta's queso-loving hearts. It's thick and buttery, and most definitely not friendly to diets. A slight spice is available with the option for pickled jalapenos.

One thing not optional is the salsa that comes along for the ride — deep red and smoky, you'll want to drink it.

It seems like East Cobb is where all the cool kids are eating now. Common Quarter being at the center. The food is “far from fussy, yet with enough quirk and nuance to feel special.

Regulars of Wrecking Bar Brewpub know what a treasure it is. Not only are brewing award-winning brews and mixing up some killer cocktails, the food menu is magnificent.

What started out as a catering company has turned into a lively restaurant in Loring Heights. One of the dishes that seems to come from the catering menu, but works incredibly well is the black truffle cremini dip. The creamy mixture is flecked with earthy cremini mushrooms, while black truffle oil gives it a deep, umami flavor. The photogenic dish is served with roasted root veggies.
