ABC= Almond Boneless Chicken The Very Best EVER

Lum’s Chop Suey

Dearborn Heights, Michigan

Very YUM at LUM’s Super Great Chinese Meals

For 38 years John Lum’s has warmed the bellies of many around town. A very large amount of LIKE votes on Urbanspoon, so I just had to give them a try. So really happy to say folks we have a true winner here. It was hard from the reviews I read on many site to figure out if they had a eating area,,, yes a older lovely dining area with a dozen plus tables and booth’s to enjoy the mega plates of food.

A super shout out to our waitress Stephanie a cutie that provided fast friendly service that made us feel right at home.

We started with this quart bowls of soup, the chicken noodle and my Favorite Hot & Sour was some of the best ever and very cheap price along with everything was priced just right and mega portions sure to feed many more per plate of food. The ABC Almond Boneless Chicken was amazing chicken is thick cut and breaded lightly to enjoy the full flavor also came with the fabulous brown gravy and egg rolls.

I tried the Crab Rangoon that I dipped in house made squeezed pepper hot sauce just marvelous.

Overall this has to be in my top 3 of all time value and flavor for a Chinese meal that I’ll be back many time to try more of the menu. I noticed they have a large amount of takeout orders from the thousands of regulars customers acquired over the years. You must give this place a try I tell you, nothing fancy just super great food with real deal pricing. ENJOY

Addictive Eclectic Ribeye with Poblano Pepper La Crema Sauce,,MONEY

As a major Foodie being raised in SW Detroit and a regular visitor to my old stomping grounds to support the hard working family owned eateries, I have to say this has to be the Very Best New eating spot for decades in all of Mexican Town. Little known the area is kinda split between the Clark Park area and Springwells Village section which is just a couple exits away at Springwells off I-75  only 10 minutes from the heart of downtown Detroit. The area most missed by the suburbian’s which think Mexican Town is only on Bagley have been missing dozens of unique non tourist trap real deal Mexican eating spots,,,that guess what the Mexican’s in the Barrio eat at.  Ah Ha  so now you know the real deal.
In reality many of the long time decades old Mexican Town eateries are only plating up Gringo style meals that why you only see the folks from the suburbs visiting thinking this is the finest offered,,,NOT you must venture out folks to explore all of what Southwest Detroit has to offer. Please continue reading for a interesting Foodie venture you must try soon.
A executive Chef Luis Garza who spent years working for Andiamo’s now brings gourmet Steaks along with unique Mexican crafted meals to the area. For now we’ll call it a hidden gem that you must try for those looking for a fine dining experience not found in other parts of SW Detroit.
We had the most amazing meal and service Thanks Ana our waitress and the table side made Guacamole in the Stone ground dish. After reading the reviews just had to try the Rib eye smothered with Poblano Pepper La Crema Sauce,,, believe me a Steak like no other that warmed our belly also the Mole Gallina which I know as Chicken Mole where the sauce is the boss and Yes the very best I’ve had around town as most use it from a jar,,,this is house made with that special Chocolate only found in Mexico.
A large selection of Steaks,Seafood and Mexican specialties can be found on the menu that are many of the elaborate dishes we’ll be trying soon,,next will be the Aged Sirloin with Guajillo,Ancho and Chipotle Butter Cream Sauce along with the traditional Stuffed Poblano Peppers I’m so enlightened by.
Also we tried a couple old school Tacos,,,Chorizo and Asada both off the chart great, I notice a few different Fish Taco’s I’ll try next time for a super treat I’m sure. A very nice pleasant clean eating area with get this white table cloths,,yep I made one hell of a mess Ha Ha. This place is # 2 on Urbanspoon for the most talked about eating spots out of 1100 restaurants,,,so now what does that tell you. Stop by say Hello to Chef Luis,,brother Hemero and MaMa Maria for a most delightful dining experience. Oh Yea please LIKE them on Facebook too. ENJOY

Most Amazing Polish Meals Downtown Dearborn

Amazing outstanding meals and service,,, My NEW Favorite Polish eating place and will surely be yours too once you give them a try. I just don’t understand why this place has been around 40 years and I’ve missed the very best in Dearborn and beyond,,, no need to travel anywhere when the real deal homemade daily Polish meals are so close to home. Sabina’s had been me favorite since they opened and now this spot where you step back in time with the spotless clean large dual seating area that warms the heart when you enter. Those great funny ladies know all by name and I m sure will remember us too.

The storefront is really blocked by trees on the street,, I do think Dearborn should removed them. The food WOW Polish Combo,,,, Tuesday Short Rib dinner the very best tender flavorful I’ve ever eaten anywhere. Those large seasoned just right Potato Pancakes YUM. Super cabbage soup along with each meal having veggies and mashed taters makes this the very best deal you’ll ever eat, all with that homemade LOVE and taste s that can rarely be produced outside the home. The Jumbo Farmer’s Cheese Nalesniki (Polish Crepes) again the very best ever. I will and you should get there on Tuesday for those Short Ribs, these are not found in many eating spots anymore and these are perfected by a senior staff of great cooks. Laugh and joke with those ladies,,have fun,eat great meals and skip those chains,, you’ll be very happy you chose this real deal Polish eating spot I tell you. ENJOY
