"Honestly, I didn't plan on doing it," says rap musician Chris "Ludacris" Bridges of his decision to create Straits with chef Chris Yeo, in Atlanta's Midtown neighborhood. "But I was blown away by Chris's use of spices - plus, what better way to be hands-on in your hometown than bringing something it's never seen before." The menu is a mix of Asian-influenced small plates, with a nod to Singaporean dishes, such as roti prata with minced beef, and seafood in coconut curry. Ludacris's favorite dish? The "Kung Pao lollipops" in a red-jalapeno sauce.
