HE ATE: Best Lansing Restaurants. SHE ATE: Best Lansing Food Events. more
Hunkered on the western fringe of Williamston, could easily be mistaken for a warehouse. What a surprise, then, when I walked through the door. The place was alive, festive and full of good cheer. On our first visit, a Friday, we arrived well before 5 p.m. By the time we ordered our meals, a long line snaked across part of the dining room as people waited for open tables. more
Fresh tea leaves imported straight from the mountains of Taiwan are the base for dozens of traditional, fruit and flavored tea offerings at East Lansing’s new Ding Tea — the first foray for the international tea shop chain in the Midwest. more
Colala will serve takeout staples alongside authentic Chinese regional specialties. And if the food tastes familiar, that's because the place is run by a branch of the same family that runs longtime Eastside Chinese takeout place China Flavors on Michigan Avenue. more
“Having regularly scheduled meals to keep yourself focused and energized, eating a variety of foods to satisfy various nutrition needs and trusting your body. By eating well and being physical active, your body will settle at a weight that is most natural for you. more
But let’s not ignore the strides this most hallowed of Lansing streets have made. When I was a cub reporter, contiguous blocks of Michigan Avenue were a mashup of massage parlors and dodgy second-floor apartments. I covered my first homicide there one Friday night, just a wino’s wobble from what is now Cooley Law School Stadium. more
“We were able to adjust quickly to life in Lansing,” Eshkuntana said. “There is no comparison between the life I lived in Jordan and Palestine and the life I live here. The simplest rights we didn’t have back home we found here, like the right for our children to go to school. more
Back in 2015, Michigan State University graduates Andrew Gauthier and Monica Lucas opened their first ‘60s and ‘70s themed bakery known as Groovy Donuts in Williamston. The retro shop officially became a small franchise in 2016 when they added their second location in East Lansing. more
Let’s start with the base of a sandwich: the bread. The baguette is no feather pillow. Feeling the texture of authentic bread is surprising in a sandwich. In our fool’s errand quest for giant submarines and footlongs, have we forgotten how satisfying a smaller sandwich can be with real bread?. more
Sometimes this may be used more tongue-in-cheek, i.e. the “garbage plates” of Rochester, New York, alongside the local Genesee Ale, but often there is real harmony in drinking something that grew a mile away from the foodstuffs that share the dinner table. more
The shop’s original chocolatiers, John and Mary Gilbert, began the company in Findlay, Ohio, in 1893 before moving to Jackson. By 1913, the store was a venerable two-story “factory.” The Gilberts continued to run the business into the ‘60s until finally selling it. more
While I still enjoy a good hot and sour recipe — I crave Tom Yum soup. Specifically, the one from my favorite restaurant in town: Naing Myanmar Family Restaurant. Its version of Tom Yum is chock full of vegetables: mushrooms, tomatoes, carrots, some sort of radish and onion. more
Starting off as a dishwasher for Saddleback BBQ after moving to Lansing in 2015, Nick Drumm, 23, is now one of the smoke pit eatery’s co-owners. Over the years, Drumm learned the tricks of the trade and was willing to share with City Pulse what goes down at Saddleback. more
Before diving headfirst into the fare, let’s settle the question: What does Green Dot mean? Turns out, it was once a horse-racing stable in Detroit, as we were told by our server. The original Green Dot Stables is still in Motown and, like its Lansing counterpart, is a restaurant. more
Steve Swart, whom you might also know from his DJ performances around town, began Ruckus Ramen as a simple passion project. A series of sold-out, one-nightonly events led to his ramen concepts taking up permanent residency inside the Avenue Café. more
If you’re “all in” for the Michigan experience, you’d be doing yourself a disservice to not try a riesling or two. Most of Michigan’s best rieslings are produced from vines near M-22. And while stopping to try wines from Verterra don’t exactly get you up close to their vines, it won’t matter once you see where their tasting room is. more
But after two visits to Punk Taco, I found the best thing about this place is a large scrawl of faux graffiti on the north wall. It was funny and thought-provoking. The best line is a quote from Henry Rollins: “Half of life is f—ing up. The other half is dealing with it. more
As sushi becomes a culinary mainstay in the United States, new restaurants are able to further experiment with the potential for the raw succulent cuts of fish. Enter PokéLab, an East Lansing eatery opened late 2017, with food that serves as a cross between your favorite sushi house and assembly line fast food bars, such as Chipotle. more
The wine industry on the West Coast fits very well into this complicated narrative of America. Many pre-Prohibition settlers were Italian. So, go figure, when they wanted to plant vines, they would often gravitate toward native Italian varieties like barbera or dolcetto. more
Thapa said Himalayan cuisine also employs both rice and noodles equally, so the choice between the two is really up to the customer. He does not require his chefs to be intimately experienced with preparing Himalayan cuisine. Rather he relies on his own “taste profile. more
