Something like 300, 000 Arabs from 22 countries live in the Detroit Metro area. No, this is not Monday because I am really talking about food today.
Detroit and its suburbs are sprinkled with outstanding Middle-eastern cuisine, and I have become one of its biggest fans. It's a healthy cuisine, lots of veggies. But the Arabic restaurants have lots of meat too, boys. Middle-eastern chefs know how to use spices to enhance flavor. It's all you can do not to lick the plate.
It's also a incredibly reasonable cuisine in these hard economic times. The restaurants around here give you free turnips, pita and garlic sauce with a $3.oo sandwich. Most of them are modest but there are some upscale ones too.
What are the most common types of restaurants in your neck of the wood? (We also have a ton of Thai). What ethnic food do like the most and barbecue doesn't count if you live in the southwest.
