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

Cat Head Biscuits with Sawmill Gravy Emagenes Southern Tradition

Food lore traces this countrified dish back to Appalachian logging camps—the reason for the term sawmill gravy. 

Cat Head Biscuits with Sawmill Gravy a centuries old dish made by my grandparents in the coal mining towns around WV & KY,this dish be a stick to your ribs to provide a filling breakfast to start the work day along with extra made to be eaten with dinner. I so loved these a child as many restaurant’s make a version, the only place I’ve found our the area is Emagenes for over half a century pinching that dough and dropping on a baking tray,,, the reference that they big as a Cat’s Head comes from the south. The gravy creamy white in color with sausage, fat dripping’s and pepper stirs together in a cast iron skillet are made daily just as in the southern homes.


We get that mega #1 Breakfast twice per month as a takeout loaded with eggs, potatoes,sausage,bacon and a stack of thick sliced ham, along with a full order of Biscuits and Gravy all this only $ 6.95 enough to feed 2 hungry adults. I always compare them to Tony’s in Birch Run as having the biggest best breakfast without the long drive. I first found them in the 80’s as one of the few places that have Grits another southern favorite of many. Yes there was a real Emagene who opened the place which was also famous for those homemade pies,,, 15 years ago Phyllis the current has changed little,,,just no more pies. A truly dated place to dine in think 1970 decor that’s spotless clean that some would call a dive. The other must try goodies are the Ham and Bean soup, Stacked Ham Sandwich and the many daily special’s. A very unique dish the Biscuits and Gravy with get this, Chorizo the Mexican sausage mixed in,,,, Whoa off the chart great.

This old southern style of Biscuits and Gravy is not for everyone,, some will not like these and other true folks from the south will say Oh YEA that’s what I remember as a kid,, so give them a try great burgers,coney dogs and omelets make for a must try,, see super reviews from around the web,, they have no website or Facebook page or advertize since word of mouth has them a thousand plus regular customers from 50 years plating up the most amazing breakfast I say downriver and beyond.

Noodle shops in Vietnam are something like hamburger joints in the United States – only more common and generally open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.The specialty is Pho — noodle soup — and the vast majority of people in that southeast Asian country eat Pho every day and most any time of the day. Pho is listed at number 28 on “World’s 50 most delicious foods” compiled by CNN a super enriched flavor filled bowl of rice noodle in broth with your added choice of veggies, today was my very first of many PHO I’ll be trying at this new eating spot. They specialize in the worlds finest Noodles for me to try with the Udon being on my list for next visit.

A super concept they want to be know as the best Noodle House around which makes this a unique focus for a downriver restaurant. I’ll have many new learning experiences at this place since my meal and appetizers were all amazing in presentation and flavor.Love me some really great Pho and so will you,,, a super family run operation that has beatified the old Fergie’s Fish in to a amazing great eating place,,, all the meal and side has a truly garden fresh flavor,,, we really liked the the spring rolls, soup and the chicken dish over a bed of scrumptious noodles.

You get a menu and a order sheet to pick your items from, each person fills out one with a little help from out super waitress Katie trained us well. Had the mega bowl of PHO with chicken and all the veggies along with succulent Crab Rangoon, spring rolls and fried dumpling. The almond chicken over a bed of super noodles that were just a perfect first eat up.Really cool the owner walks around to greet and answer questions about the dishes making sure everyone on is happy as we were. I really have never been able to use those Chop Sticks even with directions on the package,,,hurry you bring me fork and spoon I be so hungry.

Next time I get me a 6 pack of those super Spring Rolls to go,,, they be really good I tell you. Oh yea I learned how to say Pho,,,no not POO it’s Fah and I really enjoyed it.
