Detroit... The Food Report

Hello Friends!
   You know that when I travel I like to try different foods and search out some of the kinds of food that aren't available in Asheboro, NC.
   So here we go...
Middle Eastern Food
Amazing Fatoush, hummus, tabouli and baba ghanoush.
Stuffed pepper. These meals were at a little family place called Pineland. The teenagers in the family were the servers. They were so kind and funny. I ate here a couple of times.

Next is Polish food, I really wish that Rich was with me for this.
I found a place called Sabinas in the Melvinville section of town. The pierogis, kielbasa, and stuffed cabbage were wonderful.
  In my tour of downtown Detroit Tina took me to the place that originated the hot dog, with chili and onions, aka the coney. 
What is not to love?
Hmmmm....
Oh boy.
 Tina also made sure that I had one of these...
It is kind of a cream soda, or should I say pop?
  Tina and her sister also took me up to the town of Frankenmuth for dinner one night. It is about an hour and a half from Detroit and is a German community. The buildings are in the German style, it is really pretty.
  
But we were there for the chicken. 
Everything is served family style. It was yummy.
  So, do I need to go on a diet now? Yes!
Thank you Detroit!

Chris

Oh my, oh my, this all looks sooooo good. I wish I could get my hand through the monitor and just grab one of the meals, lol. Stuffed cabbage is something that people cook here, too, I just love it.
