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!

Theo & Stacy's (Downtown)

Kristin: Chicken Gyro
So... we may love food but we're not made of money. Not to mention that occasionally stepping into such a kitschy "ma and pa" establishment like Theo and Stacy's can prove to be a great experience. I'm pretty sure we both had the same thing, though Kate was much more adept at avoiding the masive pile of artery clogging fries that came with the Gryo (I promise they tasted awesome though!). All in all I had a good time, and the food was fast and yummy - perfect for any pre-movie meal. On a side note, go see The Dark Knight. Really.

Kate: Chicken Gyro and Greek Side Salad
Not a bad meal. As Kristin mentioned, I avoided the fries that came with the gyro to try and cut down on come calories. The side salad was good, but nothing beyond what I would expect. Same with the gyro. I got exactly what I thought I would. No big surprises, and no "wow" factor. Very reasonable priced and worth the money. It was a pretty quick meal, which was good. Fast service. And, there is something to be said for the ambiance of a "ma and pa" place like this. We were definitely the youngest people in there, BY FAR, and it was around 6 in the evening. I do not see myself visiting this place frequently, but I would go for some more Greek salad. Love that feta cheese!
