24. Mister Dips
19 E. Grand River Ave., Parker’s Ally, Detroit
“I'm glad these guys came to Detroit.  This is a straight forward burger and shake/Ice cream joint.  Only a couple of choices on the menu for burgers but I tried them all and everyone is a hit. They were out of chicken strips so can't comment on those.  The waffle fries with cheese, scallions and other delisc bits called "dirty-dipped waffles" are a MUST! Drink selection is limited but quality choices. The shakes and ice cream are just as good as the rest of the menu.  This is a good choice for mid-day snacks or that early evening gnosh.” - M T.

“This is such a cute place with the best service! There is a lot of parking along the street. I ordered the lavender chai latte, and omg this was the best chai latte I've ever had! It was hot, spicy, and so delicious. They also have an assortment of Zingerman's pastries (YUM), and they toasted a chocolate croissant for me. Loved everything about this place!
COVID-wise, they do a good job. There is a large hand sanitizer station right as you walk in, and everyone in the store was wearing masks properly. Only credit/debit cards right now d/t covid, and all tables were moved away.” - Kelly Y.

17. Yum Village
6500 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-334-6099
“Absolutely amazing. This is my first experience eating African food & I just want more. I've had jerk chicken, but the Lemon Jerk Chicken was so well flavored. I'm hooked on Jollof rice & Maafe. I love Panang Thai curry & this felt like the African equivalent & quite possibly a step above. Hearty, delicious, and amazing when you mix them together.
If you don't try this place, you just don't want good food. Top Notch” - Sean C.

“I ate at Marrow for the first time on 10/28/21. The menu choices offered a good variety and the preparation was exquisite. The decor and vibe was laid back but the noise level was not deafening even with a concrete floor. I was welcomed by the bartender when I walked in and the hostess was seating someone else. From start to finish and excellent experience.” - John S.
