Cold weather, illness and school have kept me home these past weeks, so I have not done any exploring into the restaurant scene in Detroit and environs, but hopefully I will be back very soon with more adventures in food.
823 S. Church St., Unit C, Greenville, S.C.
While on vacation a few weeks ago we stopped for breakfast at one of the most unique and amazing places. Biscuit Head. The menu is based on biscuit. The huge, fluffy addicting kind they make only in the South.
This place was simply wonderful. Biscuit carb heaven!! Everything was just amazing. I will just list the yumminess. If you are ever in Greenville, S.C. or Asheville, N.C. DO NOT MISS this place for breakfast. You will not be disappointed.
Detroit Vegan Soul (EAST)
8029 Agnes St.
Detroit, MI — 48214
Detroit Vegan Soul is one of our favorite spots and I cannot believe I have never blogged about it. AND I just discovered they have a second location coming soon on 19614 Grand River Ave.Detroit, MI — 48223.
The food is amazing. The space on Agnes is pretty small but it is so worth the wait if you have to. This visit we started with the Black-eyed Pea Hummus (GF w/o pita). Creamy black-eyed pea hummus dip served with cucumbers, pita, olives, and pickled beets. It was really good. Much deeper, richer, savory flavor than chickpea hummus.
John hd the Soul Platter which includes Mac-n-cheese, tenderly smoked collards, maple glazed yams, black-eyed peas and a cornbread muffin. The collards are to die for. I asked the waiter how they were prepared and became out with a list of ingredients from the chef. Amazing. And the mac-n-Cheese. No words.
I had the Cesar Chavez salad of Romaine lettuce, capers, rosemary garlic croutons with house-made creamy Cesar dressing. I had them ad the grilled tempeh which was seasoned just perfectly and the dressing was outstanding.
A new Ted Talk has been loaded. Some great ideas about our kids and the food they eat.
