ATLANTA (AP) — Hungry visitors in Georgia can now find a list of 100 restaurant specialties recommended by the state's tourism agency.

The Tourism Division of the Georgia Department of Economic Development has just published its fifth edition of the Explore Georgia Official State Culinary Guide. It includes a list of "Georgia's 100 Plates" — top dishes from restaurants across the state nominated by local residents.

The list includes sweet tea fried chicken at the Mystic Grill in Covington, pimento cheese wontons at Sweet Auburn Barbecue in Atlanta, and fish tacos with chorizo sauce and pear puree at the Tybee Island Social Club on the coast.

Copies of the culinary guide can be picked up for free at 11 visitor center across Georgia. It's also available online.
