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!

Cosmos Cucina

Kate: Spanikopita
A charming little place tucked back in a residential neighborhood, this place is a gem in the Kalamazoo cuisine area. Two dining experiences in one, we opted for cuisine found at Cosmos rather than O'Duffy's. Not an extremely extensive menu, but one full of surprises including duck, lamb and an intriguing red, white, and green lasagna. I opted for the Spanikopita and was not disappointed. The blend of spinach, cheese and herbs inside the flaky pastry was perfect. Accompanied by a petite Greek salad (always YUM) and basamati rice, this was a great dinner that was not too filling or heavy but felt like a treat!
And, I have heard stories of the wonderful roasted garlic appetizer that sits on the menu. However, it must take them a while to prepare it and the wait for this coveted appetizer was longer than the wait for a table. Plus, we were hungry, so we went ahead and ordered our entrees. SAD!
A fun place with nice decor and a fun atmosphere. Definitely a good place for a slightly more than jeans and t-shirt casual night on the town, but not too fancy pants!

five golden forks out of five!
