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

New Experience: Fresh Water Scallops

Earlier this week, I decided to stop by the Deli Counter at my local Grocery Store and bought a 1/2 lb of Fresh Water Scallops. I’m learning slowly that I am a huge fan of Oysters, Clams, Mussels, and now Scallops. I’m really excited to have learned all about Mollusks and just how extremely delicious they are. It’s an acquired taste.. I’m assuming that Shrimp and Lobster were too once upon a time when you had your first experience. 🙂

Anywhoo, this afternoon I wanted something different for Brunch and decided to Google Scallop Brunch Recipes and came across a recipe from MarthaStewart.com

Seared Scallops and Bacon (YUM!)

Et Voila!

I wasn’t really feeling the Pasta today so, I made my scallops on the side of bacon and eggs.

My first thought is that they sort of taste like Imitation Crab Meat just meatier if that makes sense. Ultimately, they weren’t that bad. They were however, a bad choice for brunch 😦 Initially, I had planned to make them alongside Asparagus and Angel Hair Pasta with a delicious white wine sauce. Welp, I guess that’s what happens when you crave something different for Brunch. I am planning to buy them again and this time actually stick to the plan.

Until Next Time…
