    Fusion cuisine is a funny thing. It’s inherently inauthentic, if you think about it: the merging of two cultures to create something completely new. Who decides the rules of this new genre? Are there any rules at all? We have nothing but love for the folks who put their own weird twists on classic dishes. Without those crazy recipe rebels, we [...]

    To categorize Bella’s as merely a coffee house would be like calling Michael Phelps a guy who eats a lot of pancakes. Sure, it’s true; but it kinda misses the whole point - the thing they’re really, really good at. Inside the cheery, two-story orange building is a lunch-breakers paradise. Tucked into a residential neighborhood near the be [...]

    If we asked you to close your eyes and picture a seafood restaurant, you’d probably envision a fancy dinner situation: white tablecloths, elegantly plated lobster tails and oysters - with expensive prices to match. Piano music gliding gently through the air. Or maybe you’d imagine a seaside crab shack, tucked onto the coast of some unassumi [...]

    The Mexican coastal state of Nayarit is situated on the Pacific Ocean, just north of Puerto Vallarta. It’s a diverse landscape of rivers, mountains and ancient Aztec ruins. A sprawling coastline draws an abundance of seafood, and plentiful summer rains produce some of the most luscious fruit in the country. If you think Mexican cuisine is all [...]

    Deciding where to out to dinner with our crew can be a complicated affair. One person wants pizza. Another’s craving Chinese, or Mexican. And there’s always that one friend in the group who just wants to go for coneys. Again. Even when we can’t agree on on one type of cuisine, agreeing to meet at Halal Desi Pizza & Gyros in Hamtramck [...]

    The ancient city of Palenque was once a thriving Mayan metropolis. From 226 BC to 799 AD it was ruled by kings and scholars, who erected grand monuments and documented their culture in iconic hieroglyphs. Now a popular archeological site, Palenque is located in the Chipas region in the south of Mexico, an area which borders Guatemala and lies j [...]

    Stopping by Chilango’s Bakery in Southwest Detroit is a little like shopping at Target. We always come in for just one thing - a slice of tres leches cake, a few churros - and end up leaving with an entire cart full of things we didn’t know we needed, but absolutely had to have. But unlike that extra lip gloss or polka dot handbag we don’t [...]

    With so many awesome Mexican spots in Southwest Detroit, it can be tricky to tell one delicious place from another. Combine that with the huge, multi-page menus that so many of these eateries offer, and it can be tough to figure out what you’re supposed to order. We sometimes get confused trying to remember which place has the better carne asada [...]
