LOVE Castle Valentines Day 7th Year, Getting Our CRAVE on

As a life long Craver,, yes a true Lover of those 30 burgers on the grill with five holes in each to bring the flavor strait up from the bed of onions and topped with the bun to steam the LOVE in of each bite.  The Crave Case with get your the whole grill full to make many happy Cravers. About a decade ago they started a super night of fun in select locations that has now grown nation wide with this being our 7th year having a super enjoyable fun filled evening on the cheap.

The evening has full table service with flowers,candles,special menu and Free Cupcakes for dessert. Most folks think only Sliders which is far from true. They have a great selection of fast foods for all.  We had the Shrimp,Onion Chips, Bacon Cheddar Chicken and Potato Bacon Chowder all with 10 sliders and fries. The decorations make for a fun filled time with Balloons and Flowers which they give away at the end of the night. This event each year fills up with only reservations made prior to coming in. I will say add this to your Bucket List to try at least once.

Fudge Dipped Cheesecake on a Stick on my these are so good and yes on the menu everyday for over 2 years now,,,bet you never had these. We get those amazing real egg breakfast sandwich a couple times per month,,you can watch them crack the egg with your choice of meat and cheese on a Butter Bun or Wheat Toast,,,best breakfast sandwich in the fast food world I tell you. Many promotions year round with pulled pork, Fish Nibblers, and Angus Chili just to name a few.

I hope after reading my post you now know the selection of foods are much more than burgers,,, this is the new White Castle for the last few decades surprising many. So go on give them a new fresh try,,,have fun. Take the family for breakfast or a late night snack since they never close. ENJOY the CRAVE  I  am.

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.
