Michigan Spanish purveyors of food

La Feria logoour STORY
How it all began… http://laferiadetroit.com/

On a cold, gray Michigan day in 1997 a group of friends reminisce about April in Seville, Spain over a couple of bottles of Rioja wine… Ahhh, the sun, warmth, friends and family, and the unmistakable excitement as the city prepares for its annual spring bash– la Feria de abril: a week long party of frolic, food, and fun. The sounds of Flamenco, the colors of beautiful dresses, the fragrances of orange blossoms, the heat of the Andalucían sun, and the enticing aromas from the simple yet powerful kitchens as they churn out tortilla, paella, and pescaito frito. Oh, to be back in Sevilla…

Yet since these friends knew Michigan would be their home for years to come, they embarked on a mission to recreate la Feria in their own backyards. And so began a yearly tradition of cooking, dancing, and celebrating in an attempt to bring a little bit of the joy of Spain to Southeastern Michigan. Each year these friends invited others to join them at their “feria,” and the party grew in numbers and popularity. Soon, murmurings began that la Feria–with all of its goodness–should be more than a once a year affair; somehow it should be held in a permanent gathering place for all to enjoy year round. And the seeds of what would come were planted…

Fast forward 16 years and that talk of sharing a little bit of Spain with others became a reality when these friends–Pilar Baron-Hidalgo, Naomi Khalil, and Elias Khalil submitted their idea to the 2012 Hatch Detroit contest and won with overwhelming support. Detroit was ready to share the magic of la Feria, and now with our doors open, we are so excited to bring it to you!

Detroit Yea a Ramen House da Johnny Noodle King

Ramen Rookie I Be Pho,Miso,Shoyu,Shio n Red Curry BACON Rice

As a Rookie Ramen eater I be getting a lesson in Japanese meals a big bowl of explosive flavorful broth, veggie n noodle with many more add on's. Instant Ramen was invented 1958 and came to America in 1971 yes I've eating thousands of packs and bowls not really having the pleasure of the real deal until now. In Tokyo alone had over 4000 Ramen shops with many unique regional styles I'm proud to have DETROIT Style Ramen.

The hottest dish talked about be the Bacon Rice yep Pork Belly n goodies on top of white rice it works well as a side dish you truly must try. Tried 3 big bowls to date with the Red Curry as the hit that has be addicted to the most crafted broth ever eaten,,,a whole lotta Love goes into brewing this concoction I assure you.
Ramen – Ramen is a Japanese noodle soup that consists of wheat noodles served with pork of other types of meat. The broth is usually tonkotsu (pork bone broth), miso (soy bean) or soy sauce. Ramen is of Chinese origin and it is unclear when ramen was introduced to Japan. The noodle soup is always served with various toppings from seaweed, corn, boiled egg, garlic and many others.

Finally made the trip for quality bursting with flavor dishes n bowls made with Detroit Love, I truly can see why so busy, easy in fast service this evening, Super Service by Victoria Martin , had the delightful Red Curry WOWED beyond expectations with a explosion of spices. One Japanese Beer very good along the the already Famous Bacon Rice Bowl a unique dish not to be missed. THANKS Jaques n Les for your creative genius on this place, , be back soon to work me way into more menu goodies. — at Johnny Noodle King.

The Polish combo plate is over loaded with fresh Kielbasa, Pierogi's, Stuffed Cabbage, Meatball's, mashed Potato's and Corn along with fresh daily baked rolls and bread from there very own kitchen.
Two great items on the menu are the unique Polish sandwich called the Zapiekani serve open face loaded with ham,kielbasa,sauteed onions, mushrooms and Swiss cheese, to me one of the very best sandwiches I've ever had. The other super delicious goodies in the Farmers Cheese Nalesniki's which I have topped with with applesauce and sour cream and dusted with Powered Sugar,,,can you just say out of this world YUMMY

The Majestic Cafe hosts a Thanksgiving Breakfast Buffet from 7 AM to Noon so that you have a nice, warm place to watch the parade. The menu items are typically breakfast and the price is $20 an adult/$15 a child.

Detroit -- The Whitney is hosting both a Thanksgiving Brunch with VIP Parade Seating at 7:30 AM on Thanksgiving Day ($59 an adult/$39 a child) and Thanksgiving Dinner from Noon to 6 PM ($49 an adult/$29 a child).

Downtown Detroit is happening all day with the Parade n Detroit Lions football with many great things to do and places to eat at. The parade is a must view as one of the oldest n largest nation wide. My choice for downtown is Sweet Water Tavern named the Best Wings in the state along with super ribs, craft beers and the game will be on tv,,,yes open all day Thanksgiving

Vince's Ristorante Italiano since 1960 Hand Crafted Pasta n Pizza Detroit Mi

http://www.vincesdetroit.com/
Italian food as close to homemade as you can get when dining out in Detroit
Paintings of Rome and Venice, and the owner's hometown of Frosinone, brighten the cheery dining room. With a menu of oh-so-familiar pastas, veal, and chicken dishes from the Italian-American repertoire,The food is unrivaled outside of Italy! The Chicken Marsala is to die for! The pasta is fresh and perfect every time, as is the pizza. Family friendly and warm, friendly, genuine people!

Since a small child my whole family has only eaten Vince's pizza along with many pasta items, along with a thing called pizza bread beef burger the best sandwich I've ever eaten.My favorite Italian restaurant of all time. What is Italian cooking, I say meals prepared with a whole lot of love, where can you get a mother and daughter team creating the most perfect dishes with homemade pastas and sauces. I say bring any in our nations Italian chefs who only supervise a kitchen and the try the magnificent foods at Vince's. They started in there house just behind the current building and expanded in the 50 years of this true homemade foods place. I'd like to get chef Aldo from that chain to throw-down with Maria on who makes the best pasta and sauces,, she's hands on everyday. Forget about any negative reviews these people haven't eaten there for 40 years like me. This family continues to commit to the freshest homemade foods by a mother and daughter team that can not be found in this world today for 50 years, so spend a couple hours and meet them, they don't hide in the kitchen. They welcome you to be apart of there family and yes it takes a little time to prepared the homemade food when not a chain restaurant.

No wonder Mohammed Ali, Sinatra and Donald Sutherland sought it out! It's one of Detroit's FINEST "semi-secrets"...for over 50 years with the same family!Maria, Lydia, Frank and the staff provide excellent food and service with a smile. treasured memories over many years. The food hails from Sicily (Spicy and robust) and is the best money can by locally. Well worth the visit with safe and secure parking around back. We have never been disappointed. Reservations recommended on the weekends at night.

Addictive Eclectic Ribeye with Poblano Pepper La Crema Sauce, MONEY [El Asador Steakhouse, Detroit]

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 suburbanite'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

Why Yelp Sucks!

I did the Yelp thing for a few years and been with Urbanspoon 4 plus years and now this happens,,,,, Urbanspoon Forked UP
July 14
A email sent to IAC parent company,,,, ENJOY

The new team at Urbanspoon has lead to the departure of many and the removal of thousands of Photo's and many will soon removing thousands of there reviews from the last 4-5 years. The seems to be a witch hunt placed on the heads of the long time Prime members by BEN at Urbanspoon and his boss Keela. The have removed 1700 plus of my photo's and those of select primes. Many have stopped posting reviews and photo's because of this over the last month.

I assure you will see a major reduction in you page hits which means ad dollars under this new take control and knowing how to piss folks off. Many of us are older folk that spend thousands of dollars helping your site by eating, reviewing and posting photo's. Ben had pulled all my ranking a few weeks ago as the number one in Detroit and then this past weekend had his team remove half my photo's. This info needs to get into the hands of those concerned and DOUG LEEDS CEO of Ask.com who heads up Urbanspoon. I really need someone to contact me on this issue prior to removing everything I've contributed over the years and then recommend hundreds of other users do the same
