Lansing, MI - A new place to try Malaysian food. I happen to be passing through Lansing and saw a new restaurant called Suria. If I have an opportunity to check out a new restaurant, I won't pass it up. This is called Hokkien Mee Hoon, which you can see it is vermicelli noodles, veggies, choice of meat (this happens to be with tofu), and it's cooked in a light soy sauce. The flavor is very subtle and not overpowering. It's very good, one of my favorites of the Malaysian menu. Enjoy!

Detroit, MI - What's the perfect sandwich in the middle of the night, a Media Noche! This is a cuban sandwich, Media Noche, from Vicente's Cuban Cuisine. It's a pressed sandwich with ham, pulled pork, swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard, with the pineapple on top. It is perfect sandwich after a night out. My friend and I got this sandwich from Vicente's after hearing about it from a co-worker. Not only did we get a great sandwich, but I got to dance salsa and my friend and I got picked up to go out with some swingers! LOL! Needless to say, we settled for the delicious sandwich and the salsa and called it a night! Enjoy!

Birmingham, MI - Recommended by a friend who shares the same culinary enthusiasm, said his favorite Thai dish is Larb. Surprising enough, I have always been deterred by the name, but because he said he loves the dish, I had to try it. IT WAS WORTH IT! I loved it. It is a layer of ground pork in spices with a salad and veggies underneath. It had a very nice citrus juice over the salad and veggies. Naturally, the dish was a hit and I intend to get it again! Enjoy!

Birmingham, MI - Sweet Tooth! These are now my favorite two cupcakes from the Cupcake Station. On the left is a Mudslide and the right is the Cookies N Cream. The Mudslide is for you chocolate lovers and surprising, the Cookies N Cream was not as sweet as I prepared myself for. It was very light and easy on the palette. They compliment each other well and I think I'll get these two every time now, unless they have a new kind to try! Enjoy!
