Ferndale, MI - After some advice from some of my blog viewers, we had to try out the Ethiopian restaurant Blue Nile in Ferndale. I like the atmosphere, very cool and it goes without saying, the food was TASTY! I think Altu's in Lansing is better, but it was still very good. This is a veggie selection, I couldn't tell you the real names, but I'll describe each one. If the dish were a clock (for identifying the position), at 9 o'clock, is yellow peas and potatoes (good, but a little bland), 10/11 o'clock spicy peas (excellent, one of the best items), 1 o'clock veggies (not bad at all), 2 o'clock lentils in horseradish (new for me and very good), 3 o'clock collard greens (also new to me and very good), 5 o'clock cabbage (pretty good), and in the center is salad with their special dressing (I love the dressing). It is all sitting on the special bread, which is very light and spongy. I liked their bread, but it didn't have a lot of flavor which I'm use to. All together, very good. Enjoy!

Lansing, MI - I'm back to my other favorite, Thai food. This is Pad Kao Pode from Asians Finest, which I never had before but would gladly get again. It is the standard Thai food flavor and nice and hot. This has cabbage, peapods, baby corn, and tofu. One thing about the dish is that it has tons of garlic, which moves the dish up in my book! I think there are some better Thai food dishes, but this still wasn't bad at all. Enjoy
Lansing, MI - The little mexican stand on Martin Luther King strikes again. I've never had Sopas before, so I was excited about trying something new. They are two a little thicker tortilla shells, definitely thicker than tostada shells, and then topped with beans or what ever meat you wish, lettuce, tomato, their special hot sauce that is out of this world by making ever single taste bud work for you, and then topped with fresh shredded cheese. I would get these again in a second. Enjoy.

Lansing, MI - Hey you lansing lunchers, if you're looking for a semi-decent mexican place for lunch, check out Jalapenos in downtown lansing. This is their burrito combo meal, which obviously comes with rice and beans. Definitely enough to fill you up and tasty as well. Enjoy!

Troy, MI - This is baked lentil kibbee from Grape Leaves. This was the first time I had baked kibbee like this before, but not what I expected. It was good, but the flavor was a little ubiquitous and the onions where a little over powering. Overall, not to bad. Enjoy.

Lansing, MI - My favorite mexican place in Lansing strikes again. This is a Pork La Torta. Man, it was good. It is a gilled pork sandwich that is pressed on the grill when cooked. It has lettuce, cheese, and some kinds of sauce that of course is delicious, but probably terrible for you. Enjoy!

Lansing, MI - Doesn't that look delicious? You're probably also asking what is it. Well it is Mole Queso Enchiladas from Pablo's Panderia. I heard about it in the local newspaper and had to try out their Mole (pronounced molay) sauce. I love enchiladas and these cheese enchiladas were very good. The shredded cheese on top gave it some extra cheesy flavor. Now the mole sauce, I was expecting to be similar to enchiladas sauce, but it wasn't. It was actually sweeter than I expected. Consequently, quite delightful. Enjoy!

Lansing, MI - Pablo's Pandaria opened in old town Lansing on Grand River and of course I had to try it out. This was the first La Torta I had. It was very good, but not great. It is basically a sub that has been gilled and flattened. It has cheese, pickles, lettuce, ham, and chorizo (spanish sausage) which really helps with the flavor. If you get an opportunity to try one, don't pass it up. Enjoy.

Lansing, MI - I'm telling you, I can't believe how good this little mexican food stand on Martin Luther King is. This is their enchiladas. I was worried if there was going to be enough when I ordered it, but as you can tell, I had no problem filling up because of how great it was. They use this crumbled cheese on top that I have no idea what it is, but man it's delicious. The Power of Cheese! I really liked the enchiladas sauce they used and what really made it excellent was the salsa they give you. Man, it's hot and out of this world. Eat up! Enjoy.

Lansing, MI - My favorite little Mexican food stand on Martin Luther King Blvd, started selling apple empanada (I'm sure I misspelled this, so if you know of the correct spelling, please let me know so I can change it). It's such a great desert, very sweet. It has apple filling, dough crust and covered in cinnamon sugar. However, it's a heavy desert, so make sure you save some room. If you don't, that find, you still won't be able to turn it down. Enjoy!
