15 NEW SANDWICHES THAT ARE ALREADY DETROIT CLASSICS
“With so many nationally famous sandwiches – the Yardbird at SLOWS BAR BQ, the chicken shawarma at Bucharest Grill, the Mudgie at Mudgie’s, Green Dot’s mystery meats, all of the corned beefs – it’s hard for a new sandwich to “steak” (get it???) its claim to fame in Detroit. So, we looked specifically at restaurants that opened in the last couple of years for the best of Detroit’s new class of sandwiches.”

“Carnivores may say that there’s nothing quite like the juicy, meaty goodness of a beef patty. However, for those who’ve tried a fresh-made (not that frozen junk) veggie burger, they know there’s nothing better in this world. The beauty of a veggie patty is its flexibility. From tofu to tempeh to black beans, lentils, or falafel — a really top notch house burger adds new complexities to a meal. Pile on fresh vegetables, cheese, sauce, maybe even an egg, and few things compare. In honor of Burger Week, here are 11 delicious ones made right here in Detroit.”

It’s Burger Week at Eater Detroit, but what would a burger be without french fries? Thin, thick, wedged, or waffled, they’re irresistible. There are infinite ways to change up the humble french fry, whether they come with or without a burger. Many of Detroit’s favorite chefs have put their own spin on the dish, and despite their differences, each version has three things in common: the potatoes are fried, salted, and utterly delicious.
