Have a recommendation? We'd LOVE to hear it!
Salutations Readers!

Kalamazoo has good food.
Great food, in fact. We have made it our mission to check out all the local eateries one at a time - and more for our own poor memories than any other reason, we'll be chronicling our adventures in food here. And some places float our boats way more than others, which is why we have developed the very scientific
five golden forks rating scale. Ok. It is not scientific at all. It is actually quite unscientific. But, it is something. And now, you can search all of our reviews by the forks rating. YAY!

But, wait! There's more!
Kalamazoo Foodies no longer just eat at restaurants then review them. There are recipes posted, some easy, some less easy, all delicious. There are, or will be, book reviews, the new
Foodie Movie Review-y which will focus on movies about food or ones that have a lot of beautiful food in them. There are other food musings, and hopefully soon contests and so much more. But, Foodie Friends, it is all about food. Because we love it!
And, we want to hear from you!

We want to hear your comments on our recipes and reviews. We want to know where you love to eat. And, we are looking for GUEST bloggers to broaden our horizons a bit. And, if you haven't found us on Facebook, you should do that too. Like our page for other fun Foodies stuff like photos, polls, and more.

SO KALAMAZOO PATRONS - where do YOU love to eat? Because we'd love to check it out and share our thoughts here. Give us a comment below, and quickly! Our tummies are grumbling in anticipation.

A Note from the Foodies about our typical fair:
So, you may notice as you read our blog that we often order the same thing wherever we go. OK, maybe not quite, but we do often order similar things. Kristin has her caprese salads and mushroom dishes. Kate has her baked goat cheese and things with tofu. Well, readers, we wanted to let you know that this is absolutely intentional. A) We love those things, so why not order what you love? And, B) It is a lot easier to compare apples to apples than it is to compare apples to comquats. So, we like to order similar things to have a good sense of how to compare them. Just wanted to let you in on that little secret. Bon appetit!

Kristin: The Euro
Known for its "Sweet and Savory Crepes," Dino's definitely impressed me with both the variety and quality of the food they offer. The atmosphere has that lovely local coffee-house feel that soothes the soul and warms the heart (actually mostly the coffee did the warming bit).
Now, while we had the misfortune of our first visit to Dino's being the same day that my couches were delivered, the staff was super friendly and were more than happy to help get our orders boxed up and ready to go.
The crepes themselves look small, but fill you right up. And they are absolutely delicious!

Kate: The "Sicilian " Crepe
Not my first visit to Dino's, I was anxious to try out their crepes. As Kristin mentioned, they have a menu of sweet and savory crepes, and I was ready to delve into the savory crepes area today. I was not disappointed, though, as Kristin mentioned, they are a bit small. And, for the price, they really should have something on the side. But, the blend of veggies and garlic butter inside this crepe make for a delectable treat that is surely a caloric nightmare! But, a good lunch along with an espresso or latte. Now, I just need to try to sweet crepes.
