from Le Petit Zinc Detroit.

I’ve been wanting to experience this cute little restaurant since like forever. Whenever, I search for great Vegetarian Restaurants near me or the best Brunch Restaurants near me Le Petit Zinc Detroit always pops up in both searches. The Restaurant is located in Midtown 70 W. Alexandrine St., Detroit, MI 48201. They have a pretty nice menu offering everything from Specialty Crepes, Very French Breakfast Items Such as Cereales Avec Yaourt Et Fruit Frais (Granola with Yogurt or Milk and Fresh Fruits) to Croissants with Jam and Tartines (Toasted Baguettes with Jam) however, because it was lunch time and I was feeling a little hangry..  I chose to look at their actual food Menu, this is where the food options got real.. lol. There were plenty of dishes to choose from but, because I’m a simple Soup kinda girl.. I chose to stick with what I know for my first experience. The cool thing is that they offer online ordering via Grub Hub which is how I was able to place my lunch order.

I ordered the Ratatouille as my main course and Macarons for dessert.

There’s  only 1 word to describe them both.. DĂŠlicieux!

And.. the real experience (Drumroll)…  the Macarons!!! This was my first time ever having Macarons and they were absolutely amazing! The perfect little sweet treat. I love the fact that they had a firm outer-shell, a soft bite and were really sweet and full of flavor, they didn’t taste like confectioners sugar.. Like I’d imagined. They were pretty delightful and I must say that I fell in love at first bite.

Now, that I’ve finally tried them.. I want more!

I am planning to visit Le Detroit Macaron

Le Macaron Detroit

They have a cute little shop located in Hamtramck.  However, for the Summer months they are a Market Vendor in Downtown Detroit with an even cuter little Pop Up Shop in Capital Park, which is actually in walking distance from my job. I am planning to visit them this week to try as many flavors as I possibly can. I’m especially excited to try one of their Signatures.. The Fruity Pebbles Macaron!!

Anywhoo.. I’ll get more into detail next weekend when I post all about that experience.

I’ve been dragging my feet on signing up and have decided that this is the month in which I stop procrastinating and make it happen. I joined on Wednesday and I’m ready to Rock and Roll!  I don’t know if I’m more excited about meeting new people and sharing the companies Artisan Wine Collection through Tastings, or if I’m more excited about my personal wine membership and all of the fabulous pairing ideas and recipes that will be birthed from my monthly wine selections.

Anywhoo.. I won’t go on and on about this however, if you’re a Wine Lover like myself and would like to learn more about the Wines, Shop Artisan Wines, Join the Wine Club, or would like to learn more about the Business Opportunity then feel free to visit my website.

New Experience (Food Truck): NoshPit Detroit

It’s Food Truck Season here in Downtown Detroit!

During the summer months we like to take our lunch breaks outside in and around Campus Martius and Cadillac Square where there’s always great food, live music, and tons of interesting things to do and see. One of my personal favorite activities is visiting the food trucks for a different lunch experience every day. Last week, I saw on Instagram that a Vegetarian/Vegan Restaurant that I’ve been dying to try was going to be in Cadillac Square all week so, I had to pay them a visit.

Because, I’ve been planning to visit their Hamtramck Restaurant since their Grand-Opening earlier this year, I already knew that I couldn’t wait to try “The Larry” which is a Vegan Reuben made with Corned Beets, Sauerkraut, Vegan Cheeze or Sharp Cheddar , House-made 1000 Island Dressing, on fresh-grilled NY Kosher Rye.

I might have failed to mention that one of the main ingredients… ❤ “love” made this sandwich incredible. This Vegan spin on a traditional/classic sandwich was very delicious and over exceeded my expectations. I have never had Beets on anything outside of a Salad and was very pleasantly surprised on how flavorful this Sandwich truly was. Overall, I really enjoyed the experience.. good food and super friendly staff. I can’t wait to visit the restaurant to try more of their signature dishes!

If you’re ever in Detroit (Hamtramck) and want a good Vegetarian/Vegan meal, I highly encourage you to stop into Nosh Pit located at 2995 Yemans, Hamtramck, MI 48212
