The Latin House

Years ago, there was a time when I thought, “Why aren’t there any south American restaurants around? That would be a great addition here.” Fast forward to now, and hello there Latin House! I ordered the Churrasco. It was delicious, but I actually preferred my friend’s dish, the one pictured below. My friend Ha ordered […]

Vintage Prime Seafood

Several months ago was Nathan’s birthday. He didn’t want any gifts, so I took him out for a nice dinner at a steakhouse instead. It was our first time at Vintage Prime Seafood, which is located inside Cork Wine & Grille, which is located inside a golf course club in Cascade. Um, whatever this was, […]

La Lotería

La Lotería has been around for a year now, but I only discovered it recently. A Mexican ice cream and snack shop, it is located on 28th Street in Wyoming. While the La Fresa Michoacana was really good, I actually preferred this one more. The sorbet was really good and the whole thing was more […]

Candied Yam

Candied Yam is a southern cuisine restaurant located on 44th Street in Kentwood, inside a strip mall that is slowly filling with life again. I have to admit, I was surprised by how enjoyable my meal there was. I’ve always thought of southern cuisine and soul food as being quite heavy, which is something that […]

Simple Fish is a new sushi restaurant located south on Division Avenue. The space used to belong to a business called Rak Thai, but the current tenants aren’t related to the prior ones.

Al-Bos Eurocafe

Al-Bos stands for Albanian and Bosnian, which is the cuisine that this restaurant features. Located on 29th Street in Kentwood, I have driven past this site so many times and always wondered what it was. I’m glad I finally got to check it out! The Burek was great, although I think the beef and sauteed […]
