Your Last meal in Detroit Metro?

If you were moving away from Michigan where and what would your final meals be?

I've already been to Supino and gotten some bread from Avalon.

      True...especially if we are talking BBQ. :)

      I might say Mudgie's for a sandwich, a bowl of soup, a Fudgie Mudgie and a bottle of Faygo. Greg Mudge is a great guy and he does these simple things very well!

      I do take it we are talking in Detroit Proper and not the Suburbs too.

      1300 Porter St, Detroit, MI 48226

          I think I may stand by this even if I included the subs. Too me...Mudgie's feels like home.

    2. Middle Eastern food. Do you have a favorite?

        for me my overwhelming favorite it pita cafe in oak park. i love their tiny home made pitas

      2. I'm with Tokyo, I'd say Middle Eastern! I have found it to be the one thing that is nearly impossible to find anywhere else in the US. I'd follow the meal up with baked goods from Shatilla! Then pack yourself a box of all the yummy MI products you can't find anywhere else. Faygo, Sanders, and Better Made. Crazy but one thing I really missed when I was living outside of MI was Olgas. I am totally addicted to their bread!

          funny you mentioned Olga's... this might be a little low brow of me to confess but i love snackers and will really miss them when im living elsewhere. i might also want a plain cupcake from holiday market...

          1. re: Jack Freeman

            amen to Olga's and Middle Eastern in general in Detroit...the best!

          2. Any veal dish from the menu at Bucci (GPW).
            A plain hamburger with raw onion at Eastgate Pub.

            1. Always liked your handle! Have to agree on the Middle Eastern—once I get more than 35 miles from Detroit I'm usually disappointed in the Middle Eastern food. Eat your way through Dearborn and the nearby towns.

                I'd go to La Marsa for middle eastern food. It's delish! Grand River and Drake in Farmington Hills. Congrats on your move to Baltimore. Talk about good food!

                      rainsux! you really got what i was going for with this post! i wanted everyone to say what THEIR last meals would be. although the sugggestions for mine were good too

                    2. When I read your post, I thought you meant Metro Airport, and I was trying to think of the last meal I had there to no avail! Sorry to hear you are moving away, but think of it this way, you can have that wonderful Maryland crab boil thing. Before you go, I agree your last meal might be Middle Eastern, but you have to get it in Dearborn - any place else pales in comparison. Or how about some Polish food in Hamtramck?

                      1. Three Brothers in Plymouth , the cabbage soup and assorted rye bread will certainly linger in your memory as their simple flavor will looked for high and low.

                        1. I would have to stock up on Mac & Cheese from Slow's. I would also have to have a cheese, pepperoni and green pepper pizza from Loui's pizza in Hazel Park. Stopped there on Saturday....hands down the best pizza there is. Can't imagine finding better pizza anywhere!!

                          1. I'm pretty sure my last meal would either be a Slow's BBQ or Zingerman's. Two of the best restaurants only the Detroit metro area has to offer.
