Any restaurants serving tongue (DTW)?

I've heard that tongue is delicious, and am curious to try it.

Are there any restaurants serving it in the Detroit area?

Or anyone know of any in NYC? I travel there once a month.

Last month I was in NYC and ordered a tongue taco, but they were out of tongue that day. Ears were also on the menu, but I was hesitant to try them!

  1. I saw tongue taco on the menu at Tienda Mexicana in Madison Heights, hardly a restaurant as it's a tiny kitchen in a grocery store. But definitely worth a visit.

    1. Most authentic Mexican restaurants will have tongue available as a meat option in various dishes- tacos, tortas etc.
      Any good authentic Jewish deli will have tongue sandwiches on the menu.
      What area in DTW is convienent for you?
      If you are in NYC go to Katz's

      1. You can get deli tongue at Star Deli on 12 Mile. Very good along with everything else there. There used to be an extremely good tongue dish at Kitchen Hanzo on Haggerty but last couple of times I was there it was not on the menu. New Seoul Garden in Southfield has tongue on their Korean BBQ menu.
