Super Saturday Themed Dinners Enjoyable Meals

Eclectic Great Menu, Beers and Bourbons
A great amazing eating spot in downtown Wyandotte is a must try plating up unique super foods along with a super list OF craft beers on tap and bottled. With the explosion of the craft beer movement over the last few years this place has added to a must try for those many super beers and bourbon. The chef who had decades of fine food experience just transplanted here from Arizona, he showcases some of the most unique menu items around the city.

Our first trip with many more to follow we tried 3 of the low priced lunch menu items the $5 Cuban sandwich with Broccoli soup, the $ 6 special Honey Pecan coated Chicken salad and me favorite the $ 7 mega flavorful Burger on Ciabatta bread topped with Garlic Basil Mayo,,really have to say the very best Burger Downriver and another must try I tell you.

A most beautiful new decorated seating area with a large outdoor patio out front that this area will sure to be proud to have. Fast friendly service with a smile and a visit from the chef, along with 3 lunch specials for $20,,,, which to me is gourmet foods at half the price elsewhere. Wonderful house made Bourbon BBQ chips and get this Purple Sweet Tater Deep Fried Fries so really good.

Had the pleasure to attend on a Saturday when they plated up a super Cajun style dinner that had the best foods I’ve had since a visit to New Orleans. The meal was all cooked to perfection with those jumbo Shrimp spiced along with fresh Okra over rice and a scrumptious cake for dessert. The place was packed with many happy diners the service was impeccable along with the owner stopping by to say hello to diners at every table. Our 6th trip to this hot new eating spot in Wyandotte we’ll be back many more times,,, give them a try and seen there Facebook page for daily specials.

Now let’s talk BEEF  the best deal around town on Prime Rib we’ve had it 3 times now always cooked to our liking smothered in Au Jus with a side of Fricase a cream of horseradish and mayo along with potatoes and a salad for only $ 12 make this the steal deal of all downriver. At least once per month on the weekend they this deal that’s make for a enjoyable evening exploring downtown Wyandotte. We’ve always had great service and meals I really don’t know what the others on review sites are to complain about. The owners a husband and wife team have brought this unique eating spot to us,,, so get on down give them a try. The owner is a Beer Brewer like me and has a super rotating draft selection of Michigan Craft Beers for my enjoyment.

Tamales,Tres Leche,Churro and Three Kings Bread

The moment you walk in, the smell of sugar,butter, and freshly baked bread (oohh how I love theehypnotizes youAll the pastries are stored in trays behind huge glass cases– – grab a pair of tongs and a tray and load up! 

You really must try those mega Cinnamon Rolls topped with Chocolate I’m addicted to these,see them in the lower left in the the photo below
Oh My those Chicken and Pork Tamales that are made fresh daily for only 10 bucks per dozen a must try along with the most flavorful Salsa mama makes, I really hope they start selling by the Quart,,, Yes it’s that good.
Bread Pudding Cake a unique treat in photo above, sold by the slice a mouthful of flavor, think the old Sveden House bread pudding and now in cake form, whoa this is great another must try.
It is traditionally eaten on January 6, during the celebration of the “Día de Reyes” (literally “Kings’ Day”), which commemorates the arrival of the three Magi or Wise Men. In most of Spain, Spanish America, and sometimes, Hispanic communities in the United States, this is the day when children traditionally get presents, which are attributed to the Three Wise Men . In Mexico before children go to bed, they leave their shoes outside filled with hay or dried grass for the animals the Wise Men ride, along with a note.
The tradition of placing a trinket (figurine of the Christ Child) in the cake is very old. The baby Jesus, when hidden in the bread, represents the flight of Jesus, fleeing from King Herod‘s evil plan to kill all babies that could be the prophesied messiah. Whoever finds the baby Jesus figurine is blessed and must take the figurine to the nearest church on February 2, Candlemas Day (Día de la Candelaria). In the Mexican culture, this person also has to throw a party and provide tamales and atole to the guests.

Goulash, also known as beefaroni, is one of my childhood favorites. Enjoyed in houses around the world in many recipe types as an amazing comfort meal for the masses to enjoy.

Poutine Places Popping all over Detroit,,, Canada’s Comfort Food

Poutine, French fries are covered with fresh cheese curds, and topped with brown gravy. In a Quebec poutine,Fries: Usually of medium thickness, and fried (sometimes doubly) so that the inside stays soft, while the outside is crispy.Cheese curds: Fresh cheese curds are used to give the desired texture. The curd size may vary but is usually slightly smaller than bite-sized.Gravy: Generally a light and thin chicken, veal, or turkey.
I’ve been a Poutine lover for 40 years since first having this great dish in Windsor and on many trips to Niagara Falls Canada before checking into the hotel I stop at the Burger King on Clifton Hill to enjoy a large cup filled with my alltime favorite comfort food. Since then I’ve tried many of the fast food joints around Canada,,yes they all serve this dish and many local pubs and restaurants in and around Windsor.

A few years ago a place in Wyandotte,, Joe’s Hamburger had the very first Poutine around Detroit and now about a dozen plus spots have there own take on this dish. Only one is the best and truly original as the 2 owners relocated in Detroit from Toronto just a little over a year ago. The spot Brooklyn Street Local in the heart of Corktown is a must try, with them plating up the original and one topped with Bacon. They keep it real as other’s have missed the mark by not using the White Cheese Curds which is not the same prepared any other way,,I assure you as I make this dish at home many times per year. You must try Poutine at any spot you see the dish on the menu and then drive to Brooklyn Street Local and have the real deal or just drive across the border to Windsor and head to Smoke and Spice to have the Pulled Pork Poutine a dish you will never forget or find anywhere I’ve been.
