Wow! The end of the month is already here!!! I seriously can't even believe it. That means I get to share with you another fun restaurant review. Disclaimer: by no means am I a food critic, I just love food and want to share my love of food and experiences with all of you!
Let me introduce you to Huron Room, the only all Michigan restaurant in the world. Yes, you read that right. Everything they've got is sourced from Michigan, including their entirely Michigan made and produced bar. At first glance their menu seems predominately fish based, but let me tell you, they have far more to offer than just fish.
Let's start off with their Michigan bar. My favorite cocktail is the Thunder Bay Pain Killer. Coconut, pineapple, rum & nutmeg...it takes me right to the beach. And for summer they are serving a Michigan rose´ that seems to pair with everything I want to eat!
Now let's move onto the bait. The Basket of Wings in serrano bbq is where it's at. As much as I love a fried wing this one is just so right - and a little healthier - when grilled. The Freshwater Hush Puppies with whitefish and huron butter are delightful. They have a different taste from the southern hush puppies I'm used too, but the huron butter and whitefish paired with corn meal complement each other so well. I also love their Brussel Sprout Salad - leeks, fennel, dill, pecorino and lemon vinaigrette, whats not to like about that?!?
Now when it comes to the catch you can get Fish & Chips, Grilled Fish or Fish Tacos. You guys know I love me some fish tacos and these don't disappoint. I ordered mine grilled with the Ohio Yellow Perch, but next time I think I'll try fried with the walleye...that's what M ordered and said was the best he's ever had.
Of course we've been back and just had to try their sandwich section. Let's talk about how HUGE both the Hot Fish and PLT are! SO FRIGGIN BIG!!! Like you need two hands to eat them and the fish might still fall out. The Hot Fish has the perfect amount of heat and the PLT gives you that perfect fish sandwich feel. E had their Grilled Cheese which he devoured. I snagged a bit too! You guys it was just what I wanted from a more gourmet grilled cheese with raclette and cheddar!
So if you're in the Detroit area and looking for some good local eats and drinks this is the place you need to check out!
