Anyway anyone know a good place that serves offal and brain in the Detroit area? Something like Beef, pork or mutton brains maybe?

    Isn't offal one of the reasons for the Mad Cow outbreak in England years ago? (It could be another kind of offal, I don't have any kind of science degree so I'm not an expert.)

      Just re-watching the Zimmern Bizarre Foods episode on Detroit. He had brain sandwiches at Al Ajami in Dearborn-- supposedly the area's best. I have no idea as to quality as I've never tried them.

      Used to be a great place called Taquería Arandas in Detroit, on Livernois, that had them all on tacos, plus one named with a word I had never heard before. I asked them what it meant, and they said, "a little of everything." Unfortunately, they closed. If you're really up for this I would ask around the taco trucks and smaller places in SW Detroit (¿hay sesos? = are brains available?).
