The Drunken Rooster Food Truck

The Drunken Rooster Food Truck

One look at the Drunken Rooster’s paint job and you can tell this is not like other food trucks. Pimped out with graffiti-style artwork, the vibrantly colored, beautifully detailed murals depict too-cool-for-school animal characters who would definitely be friends with the Kool-Aid Man and Sonny the Cuckoo Bird. The fun, colorful theme is appropriate for […]

El Charro Food Truck

In the great taco debate, most of us fall into one of two camps. Hard shell or soft. Corn tortilla or flour. But there is a wildcard contender for taco president that has been quietly gaining momentum, converting nearly everyone it encounters into a devoted fan. One that nobody saw coming (at least, we didn’t). […]

Slyde Popup Preview

Slyde Popup Preview

We’re huge fans of the tiny hamburgers known as sliders. If there’s any food more perfect than a burger, it’s a burger we can eat six of and feel totally fine about it because they’re so small they couldn’t possibly be fattening. A new slider restaurant, Slyde, is coming to Detroit’s Avenue of Fashion. But […]

Mito’s Doner

Mito’s Doner

We’re pretty familiar with the vertical rotisserie here in Detroit. Step inside any Greek restaurant on Monroe St. and you’re likely to be greeted by a big, glistening stack of meat roasting patiently as it waits for its turn to be shaved into gloriously tender slices onto your gyro. Spots like Bucharest Grill are famous […]

Matt & Mo’s Food Truck

The Chicago Stock Yards after the turn of the 20th Century were a bustling hub for everything meaty and delicious. A far cry from the days when you had to grow your own or buy it from a local farmer, new fangled mechanical refrigeration techniques made centralized stockyards more practical as steel railways expanded westward. […]

Summer is one of the best times of the year to be a food lover. This season offers some of the most deliciously fresh eats: watermelon so juicy it runs down our chin; delicate tomatoes, ripe from the vine; bright, flavorful herbs that grow abundantly in our garden. And there’s nothing better than sinking our […]

Five Bones Pop-Up

Five Bones Pop-Up

These days when we’re heading to a popup dinner, we’re usually buying tickets online in advance and preparing for four or five courses of carefully plated, imaginatively designed recipes. Maybe we’re previewing a chef’s new dishes for their not-yet-open restaurant or devouring the exclusive menu of a guest chef visiting from the coast. And we […]

Vicecream Detroit

Vicecream Detroit

Do you ever wish there was an ice cream truck for adults? Practically every summer of our childhood, we waited with gleeful anxiousness for that magical white truck – the one with an endless supply of sweet frozen treats – to come rolling through our neighborhood. Its mechanical music beckoned us to the street from […]

The Old Country

The Old Country

When we think of Transylvania, our brain conjures images of a mysterious land where blood-thirsty vampires skulk in lonely castles and howling werewolves lurk in the woods. But it’s not a spot you’ll find only in vampire novels and horror films. Transylvania is a real place, a historical region in central Romania. This land beyond […]

El Taco Veloz

El Taco Veloz

When you first arrive at El Taco Veloz, you might think it’s just a food truck. Actually, you might think you’re in the wrong place altogether. El Taco Veloz – which roughly translates to “the speedy taco” –  is tucked into the back of a produce warehouse on Toledo Street in Southwest Detroit. Turning into […]
