    We like to think that we love all potatoes equally. They’re one of our favorite foods. French fries, mashed, scalloped, au gratin, baked, hasselback, even potato pancakes: we scarf them all, each starchy bite bringing a smile to our face. At breakfast time, hash browns are always our spud of choice. Even when they’re bad, they’re still pretty [...]

    Whoever first thought of having breakfast for dinner was brilliant. And whoever decided that it could really be dessert for dinner was seriously a genius. The waffles at Peggy Day’s satisfy our every breakfast-for-dinner-for-dessert craving. Peggy Day’s opened yesterday, Oct. 2 in the same spot where Chickpea in the D operates during the [...]

    You could easily mistake Taqueria Vaente for one of the vacant buildings that pepper this area. Situated on an industrial stretch of Fort St. in Southwest Detroit, the taqueria has few neighbors open for business. You won’t find any signage to reassure you, either - just a faded “El Roble” painted on the side of the building. During the we [...]

    Some of the boldest, most unique flavors we’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting have come out of a pizza oven, in the tiny kitchen at Amar Pizza. A take-out joint tucked onto the Detroit-Hamtramck border, Amar’s unassuming, square little white building masks the culinary genius going on inside. If you’ve heard of Amar before, you might hav [...]

    Slider spots like Telway and Motz tend to get all the glory, but we’ve got the scoop on an overlooked slider joint that’s earned its place in the hamburger hall of fame. Tucked onto West Chicago at Oakman Blvd., in a mostly residential neighborhood on the west side of the city, Elmer’s Hamburgers serves up simply delicious hamburger sliders. [...]

    Vince’s Bakery & Party Store is not just an Italian deli. It is a place where magical things happen to ordinary sandwiches. This family run spot on 8 Mile, just inside the Detroit border, is an overlooked gem. Don’t be confused by its outward appearance; it can feel more like you’re walking into a gas station convenience store than a r [...]

    You don’t need a window seat to get a jaw-dropping view at Top of the Pontch. Although the newly-opened restaurant - perched on the 25th floor of the Crowne Plaza Pontchartrain - offers sweeping views of the riverfront, don’t be surprised if you find yourself staring awe-struck at your plate more than the window. The food at Top of the Pontc [...]

    There’s a giant sloth attacking the Empire State Building. Biplanes - some of them on fire and in distress - buzz around his head. It’s chaos, but the sloth doesn’t seem to know. He just continues hugging the skyscraper with a sleepy smile on his face. That’s because he’s several feet tall and painted in that position. The playful composi [...]

    When we’re craving authentic Mexican food, we usually hop in our car and head to Southwest Detroit, where taquerias and hidden gems abound. We were excited to find a new spot just as delicious and authentic, right down the street from the office: Jose’s Tacos. Jose Orozco and his family own and operate Jose’s Tacos. It’s is a little hole [...]
