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!

  • Miso Soup
  • Edamame
  • Eel Rolls
  • Spicy Tuna
Again, SushiYa is the kind of place where we order stuff and share. So above listed is the menu for the night for both of us.
There is something about sushi that makes me generally happy. Maybe it's the chopsticks. I always feel pretty snazzy when I successfully consume food by using them. In any case, good times. The food is good and fresh, and the amount this time wasn't totally over-doing it. Eel is definitely my fave - whatever sauce they drizzle on top of that roll before they serve it just does the trick!

This was a much more manageable amount of food for us and was a little kinder on the pocket books as well. We really scaled down this time and you know, when you find something you like, why not have that. So, we did indeed each order our own eel roll. As far as eel goes, it is pretty darn good here. And, I generally like spicy rolls, so we came to a compromise on the tuna and I was not disappointed. The miso and edammame were what I expect and nicely rounded out this meal. I think there was a beer special that night, and they had that really good Sam Adams Cherry Wheat beer. YUM!
I think we are a lucky we have a good sushi option in town!

five golden forks out of five!
