Detroit’s Defining Foods

Submitted by on October 22, 2010 – 8:15 pmNo Comment


The Detroit Free Press has come up with a list of 50 foods that define the Motor City. “What we eat says much about who we are,” they wrote, so “we went looking for the foods and flavors that define metro Detroit, the ones that best tell the story of our geography, our diverse backgrounds, our history and even our future.”

And their choices? Here are the top ten. You can find the whole list online!

*Coney Island hot dog (pictured), at the American, 114 West Lafayette, Detroit

but some prefer the version prepared by their rivals:
*Coney Island hot dog, at the Lafayette, 118 West Lafayette, Detroit

*Taqueria tacos at Lupita’s Taqueria, Mexicantown, Detroit

*Hamburger at Miller’s Bar, Dearborn

but others prefer this version:
*Burger at Redcoat Tavern, West Bloomfield

*Kielbasa sausage from Kowalski Family Deli, Hamtramck

*Great Lakes native yellow perch, especially from Moose MacGregor’s, Brownstown Township

*Faygo Redpop bottled by Feigenson Brothers Bottling Works, Detroit

*Vernors, the sweet, fizzy, gingery drink created by Detroit pharmacist James Vernor around 1866

*Pickles, hand-packed, dilled or spicy spears from McClure’s in Detroit

So, Road Trips Foodies, what foods define your hometown?
