You never have to wait too long for a food event to pop up in West Michigan. You just need to know where it's at and what's going down. Interested in the traditional or maybe the offbeat? Something relaxing or lively? No matter the theme, there are really just two must-haves for a successful food event.
In the past few years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs) and organic food delivery services have recently seen significant expansion in their food-conscious customer base. These options are alternatives to food and produce with GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and pesticides added, resulting in healthier and fresher options.
It's hard to remember a time when bacon was just a side order at breakfast. Over the past couple of years, the salty strips have found their way into everything from popcorn and liquor to cupcakes and ice cream. It almost feels like you can't leave the house without running into the temptation of a bacon-infused, bacon-sprinkled or bacon-wrapped something or other.
Fries—the versatile nosh that's just as enjoyable in the form of fast-food snack or gourmet side. While the classic French fry may be your salt-tooth vice, go ahead and expand your horizons with these creative alternatives. You won't be disappointed.
If you're following a gluten free diet, one thing you might not get enough of is quality bread. At Green Restaurant, located on the East Beltline between Biggby Coffee and Noodles & Company, the homemade bread is so tasty that owner Mike Meyer sells it by the loaf. At $7.99, it's gluten, dairy and egg free, making it ideal for vegans, too.
Brunch isn't typically the first word that comes to mind when one thinks of traditional Ethiopian fare—but that's exactly what's being served up these days at Gojo, Eastown's hidden gem of a restaurant. You might have stopped into Gojo for a lunch or dinner, or you may not have even been aware of this culinary spot at all.
Ionia Avenue’s reputation as the night-life hotspot of Grand Rapids will see an upbeat change with the welcoming of Menna’s Joint as the newest member to its strip.
The taco has gained increasing popularity as of late; no longer mere street food option, it's now a ubiquitous nosh in no-frills and trendy dining locales alike. When it comes to tacos, where does the value lie? Overall, authenticity trumps ambiance. And, West Michigan is serving up plenty of authentic tacos.
