    Detroit 'burbs
  1. I haven't tried anything other than making fish biryani with Shan fish biryani spice mix. I would love to branch out.
  2. My husband too... and he hacks at it in a V like cutting motion instead of just cutting off pieces and further trimming them. Drives me nuts.
  3. I noticed that this season's episodes look different too- Not as "green" out the windows or something. Is it a new set/different kitchen? It's not as bright. I liked the old look better- More stainless/professional and brighter. On the bright side, it's on my PBS HD feed now so I can record it in HD- yay. -Kelly
  4. Sure they did, oh, about 6 months ago. I did a series recording on it. Very interesting! Wait, maybe it was on Discovery Health or something like that. Did you ever find it?
  5. Have you tried http://www.allmenus.com/ ? We recently moved here too and I find their menu listings great for deciding whether the food and prices are worth a visit.
  6. Those look awesome! If you are able to post the names, I will look for them when I'm able to get to Windsor, especially the cow milk cheeses.
  7. Thanks for the info- Not sure I want to wait that long to get over the border though, yikes. Well, it's not so much me as the kids. I will make it there sooner or later though!
  8. When you find a source, please post! I just moved back to the Detroit area after many years and didn't realize you could get raw milk soft cheeses north of the border. I'm willing to drive up to Toronto if necessary. --Kelly Adding-- Far Flung Foods sounds like the place- Have you checked them out yet??
  9. Just came back to edit my post but you caught me! I don't know where "Notre Dame" came from, LOL. You should put Ann Arbor in the title of this thread if you can still edit it. I am always interested in the burger threads but was pleasantly surprised to find out it was a Michigan venture.
  10. Darn, Darn! I was just up yesterday hanging out while my husband went to the game but I just found this thread TODAY and was up for two other games. That's 3 missed opportunities! I've been desperately looking for good burgers since moving back to MI earlier this year. Keep us posted- Sounds and looks great. Just had to add how excited I am - I might even have to get up early and come up in the cold before the Ohio State game now. -Kelly
  11. I just noticed that they've closed: Freep Article on the closing I never got a chance to make it over there...
  12. I went to Shiro two summers ago for a wedding. I don't know what the typical menu is like but the food was very good- They had both sushi and french inspired lamb I believe as well as side dishes that were japanese inspired. I wouldn't call it a true Japanese restaurant, though it was tasty and the old mansion was a lovely setting for a wedding. -Kelly Naftal, Sahara is my favorite Chaldean restaurant. I was just there 3 weeks ago and have been going there for over 20 years (when I was in town, that is). There is a nice Chaldean grocery store next door too where I got some awesome turshi (mixed vegetable pickles) and other foods. I'm plotting my next visit for both actually.
  13. Oh, I love Pain D'Or! i read about it on the internet last month (maybe from you!). I've only bought the zatar, on 3 different occasions. I'll try the other flatbreads now and flat pita. The Agrusa international market in the plaza has some fun goodies too and great prices.
  14. Terapinchef, Do you know if the Primo's in Birmingham has the same menu or origins as the one in Oak Park? I'll be moving a heck of a lot closer to the North Woodward one. Again, not haute cuisine but very tasty when you're in the mood.
  15. Boagman, I grew up in the Ferndale area the first 15 years of my life (until 20 years ago) and we're moving back to the metro area next month. Wonder if we went to the same schools at the same time.... you'll have to PM me. I went to Via Nove last year on a Thursday and the place was half dead and everyone was in their 40's and 50's so it was really quiet inside and low key, but not much "energy". Not that I want a scene but it was like everyone was lacking that night, including the waiters. My food was good but overpriced. My sister and mom were disappointed in their entrees. I can't even remember what they ordered. I went to Assaggi about 4 years ago and thought it was fantastic but also pricey. I loved the ambience and thought it would be a nice special occasion place. --- If you want a slightly different middle eastern place, try Sahara on 9 mile and Coolidge in Oak Park. It's Chaldean (Christian Iraqi) and everything I've had there is wonderful. They have great tershi on the side too (pickled veggies) and I always love their chicken or lamb shwarma. I've been eating there over 20 years when in town and my sister is a regular. I am also a 25 year fan of Primo's Pizza on 9 mile just west of the Ferndale border into Oak Park. They have a wonderful broasted chicken dinner with fat fries and cole slaw, with or without bbq sauce. I like mine without but the rest of my family gets it with the sauce. They also have tasty fish dinners and new york style pizzas. When you crave some tasty non-health-food food their takeout is hard to beat IMHO especially if you're only a few miles away. It's one of the first things I'm getting when we move back! (haven't found this simple but tasty broasted chicken out west). I always get a reuben at Stage Deli when shopping at Somerset. Glad to know it's hard to beat. -Kelly
