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: Chicken Biryani & Lush Gulab Jamun
God I love Indian food. The biryani was great, served with some sort of cool cucumber sauce that was wonderfully complementary. It was so good, in fact, that I decided to venture into the land of deserts. I asked our server what she reccommended, and she was awesome at walking me through how to pronounce everything, and what it was made of. Her "it's like tiny balls of cheese in maple syrup" descrption of the Lush Gulab Jamun was intriguing enough to order, but sadly, it was... well Kate liked it at least.

Kate: Robust Chicken Curry and Garlic Naan
I can be a pretty adventuresome eater, but chicken curry sounded so good that I went the safe route and ordered it. It was yummy. Great blend of spices and the chicken was cooked just right. The waitress, however, recommended that I share Kristin's rice with her, which was not a good move. I could have gotten another meal out of mine with more rice. And, I felt bad taking Kristin's rice. But, it was good. The naan was also very good and hearty.
As Kristin mentioned, I did enjoy her dessert. It was different. Intriguing. Probably won't order it again, but I am glad I tried it.
I will definitely visit Saffron again!
