Pierogi and kielbasa
When people ask you what the traditional food is from Detroit, do you say Coney dogs? While that’s all fine and good, if we’re really being serious about the phallic-shaped foods we miss from Detroit, King Kielbasa takes the proverbial cake. And we're sorry, but pierogi like the ones you'll find in Hamtramck simply do not exist anywhere else in the world besides Poland.
Oh, Oberon, you sweet, sudsy harbinger of spring. And amber ales that don’t leave a funny taste in your mouth? A real, actual, solid, honest-to-goodness porter? Unless you find yourself living in Oregon, Colorado, or, oh, Germany, chances are you wince when someone in your new locale offers you a craft beer because you know it’s not going to live up to the ones you can so easily access at home. Hell, even Stroh’s (now made in Detroit once again!) comes out on top of the clear, cheap brews according to our unofficial lager taste test.
