  • Batch Brewing Company
    • Neighborhood: Corktown & Southwest
    • Price Level:   

    What is a nano brewery exactly? For starters, it’s smaller than a microbrewery which produce less than 15,000 barrels annually. Nanos generally produce four barrels (eight kegs) or less per batch, and many don’t brew more than one batch at a time. Since they don’t have to worry about volume and distribution, they’re free to focus on q [...]

    At first glance, La Posada looks like a little market. When you walk in, you’re surrounded by shelves of groceries, a few deli items, and lots of authentic Mexican specialties. It’s a cute little shop. But keep walking, all the way to the back of the market - follow your nose - and you’ll be rewarded with the discovery of a secret restaurant [...]

    Maybe this is a Michigan thing, but as soon as the temperature inches above 50-degrees, we consider it officially hot dog and ice cream season. And that means it’s time to head over to Family Treat in southwest Detroit. They close down for the winter every October, but they’re back open now and offering some sweet new treats this season.

  • Famous Tasty Chicken

    • Price Level:

    The name sets the bar pretty high: Famous Tasty Chicken. It may not be world famous yet, but this spot definitely has the tasty. Tucked into a little shopping plaza across the street from El Nacimiento and next door to La Fiesta market, Famous Tasty describes itself as a Mexican, Arabic, and American restaurant. Their name is a bit of a misnomer [...]

    Camino Real is a two story house and garage that was converted into a restaurant in 2008. The front of the building still looks a lot like a house, blending into the surrounding neighborhood. Thankfully, one side is painted bright yellow with the restaurant’s name prominently displayed, so it’s easy to spot from the road. Just off the freewa [...]

    Tucked inside the E&L Supermercado grocery store in Southwest Detroit - behind the mountains of fresh produce and sea of tortillas - is a little lunch counter. You’d probably never find it unless you were grocery shopping here, but it’s worth a special trip even if you’re completely stocked up on sundries. E&L has been part of the [...]

  • Hot Taco
    • Neighborhood: Downtown
    • Price Level:   
    • Vegetarian Options
    • Cards Accepted

    We used to think Hot Taco was a place you’d only go on Saturday nights, after a long evening of bar hopping. It seemed that just before last call the place would start to get busy with tipsy patrons looking for something - anything - to stuff in their face. But a series of recent daytime visits completely changed our opinion of this underrated [...]
