Le Macaron Detroit

Happy Independence Day!

Yesterday, I was finally able to visit le detroit macaron. So glad that I did. They have the cutest little shop in Capitol Park for the Summer, located at Griswold and State Streets. Inside their cute little glass shop they had merch for sale (t-shirts & mugs) but, I was a woman on a mission. I was on a 15 minute work break and had to get my little assortment of macarons. I’ve literally been thinking about them since my first experience with macarons last week. Yep, I’m officially obsessed!😍

Any whoo… It happened…

I purchased an assortment of 5:

Rose, Chocolate Hazelnut, Almond, Fruity Pebbles, and the Pop Rocks Macaron. Everything was delicious! I did share with my boyfriend and 17 year old son whom also, have never experienced them. Surprisingly, they enjoyed them. My son had the Fruity Pebbles and Pop Rocks. He shared his experience by describing each taste.

The Fruity Pebbles he described as tasting like the actual cereal with a red velvet center.

The Pop Rocks were just like the candy and he loved it. He could hear and feel the pop rocks fizzing and popping on his tongue.. and described the taste as a strawberry ice cream taste with a pop tart icing feel.

I had the Rose and Almond flavors and again they were absolutely incredible! Very light and delicate and I enjoyed them a lot. Can’t wait to visit again.

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
