“What are you known for?” is easily one of the most common questions you’ll hear from a group of journalists in a restaurant. Who wants to eat something they can have anywhere when there’s all sorts of new things to try? Corned beef on potato pancakes, lobster stuffed lobster, Ecuadorian humitas and cherry pie so good it will make you weep with joy. These are just a few of the things we had on our cross Mitten trip in Michigan. Our group started in Detroit, then traveled west, hitting Ann Arbor, Lansing, and finally Grand Rapids.
If you thought Michigan was just cherries and apples, you’re about to be blown away by the options available when it comes to what to eat in Michigan. (But keep those cherries and apples around, you’re going to want pie when we’re done.)
