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!

  • Edamame
  • Miso Soup
  • Eel Roll
  • Crab Roll (had some fancy name in japanese that I can't remember)
  • Spicy Tuna Roll
  • Spicy California Roll
  • Shrimp Roll (see Crab roll re: name)
  • Yellow Tail Roll
Okay, you know, it would be stupid to list what we got separately, as we just got a big old plate of sushi and shared. Hence, all the food we ate is listed above. Yes... we are pigs. But we had reason, 'twas good! For my first (kind of second, but not really) fore into the land of sushi/ japanese cuisine... oh man was it good. I'd have to say my fave was definitely the eel, followed by the crab. And edamame? I could subsist on a diet of that alone. Minus the cost (which is probably due to us eating way more than necesary), I say we go back there very, very often.

Twas not my first run with sushi. Thanks to a friend, I have been enjoying the wonder of sushi for a few years now and was greatly missing the place I left behind in Cbus, Ohio. Though this doesn't quite fill the void, it was yummy. The service was pretty good too, which is always a nice addition. And, I was happy to guide Kristin through her first real sushi experience. I agree, the edamame was great, but it is hard to mess that up. As for the sushi rolls, they were pretty good. I love myself some eel, and they certainly do that one right there! Overall, I satisfied my sushi craving. And, will certainly go back for more. And, now that we know how big the roll it there, we will probably scale back our ordering.
