A culinary trip around Michigan
Ann Arbor, Michigan
Frita Batidos is a chef-driven restaurant inspired by Cuban culture and a fantasy revolving around two culinary staples in the world of Cuban street food – The FRITA – a burger traditionally made from spicy chorizo served with shoestring fries on top in a soft egg bun and BATIDOS – tropical milkshakes made with fresh fruit, crushed ice, and sweetened milk – with or without rum.
Comstock Park, Michigan
Located 10 minutes north of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, this micro brewery and taproom is striving to bring a world class experience to every person who walks through their doors.
Tall Paul's Pickles
The name fits! Ever since he was a young boy Paul was always taller than every other kid. He grew up in suburban Detroit with 3 siblings and a passion for sports and vegetables. Green beans were always his favorite with Pickles being a close second, especially his mother’s homemade crock dills. “I still remember going to get fresh cukes with my Mom from the roadside farm stand on 9 mile road in Farmington Michigan every summer” says Paul.
