Kosher Detroit

Just checking to see if there are any updates to the kosher scene in Detroit - I will be travelling there next week - I found the thread form 9 monthes ago and wanted to see if anything has changed?

  1. As of my last trip, 4 weeks ago, nothing much had changed. Milk and Honey still shines, and nothing else is worth mentioning.

    1. See, I think Milk and Honey isn't as good as it used to be... Cafe One next to One Stop Kosher has real NYC pizza, as opposed to Jerusalem Pizza. I'd be sure to hit that up...

        Oh, Milk and Honey used to be better than it is now, but it's still as good as the better dairy restaurants of Brooklyn.

        As for "real NYC pizza", see the thread about that - it ain't all it's cracked up to be, and in any case I don't need to go to Detroit to get it (weinstein5 didn't specify where s/he was coming from).

          Close enough - Chicago and we have a few good pizza places

        1. I don't know if you plan on visiting Detroit, but I saw your post and wanted to know if you ever went to Rami's. It used to be BKC, but with the new owner came a whole new attitude. I would try it out next time you are there.

            how new an attitude? BKC2Go used to be horrendous. dirty - no seating -- and just greasy spoon stuff. is it the same size/menu?

            1. re: joekool02

              I'm in Detroit again, and will give Rami's a try. Any recs on what to order?

              1. re: joekool02

                So we took joekool's advice and got takeaway from Rami's. It was certainly better than BKC.

                The menu says you can order any of the Asian chicken dishes with tofu instead of chicken. Oddly, while the various chicken dishes are all different prices, if you take the tofu option they're all the same price. I'm not sure how to explain that.

                Anyway, we got General Tsao's chicken, Peanut tofu, and a variety of "poppers" - 6 each of chicken, broccoli, and mushroom - and the kids had hot dogs. The General Tsao's was ordinary, not bad but nothing special. I enjoyed the peanut tofu, and I'm not at all sure that chicken would have improved it any. By the time I sampled the poppers they were cold, and maybe that's why I didn't care for them; others liked them. The kids were happy with their hot dogs. All in all it was a positive experience, and I'll certainly try them again next time I'm in town. Maybe I'll get the peanut chicken and see how it compares to the tofu.

              2. i hear saras is back in motown, its a classic clean deli from back in the day

                      ah, it's at the old folks home -- not quite a restaurant right?

                      1. re: LoveKosherEats

                        after deeper insight i see that they are located it the jcc which is by no means an old folks home

                        1. re: cwsilverberg

                          So has Subsation closed? I can't see where there's room in the JCC for both, either physically or commercially.
