Green Lantern Pizzeria & Lounge

It was date night this past Saturday and Josh and I were on our way to Vinsetta Garage. We we’re disappointed with a long wait time and decided to go to Green Lantern instead. Green Lantern Pizzeria, located in Madison Heights on John R & 12 Mile, is making some delicious pies.

Service: 3.5 out of 5 stars (the place was packed)

Quality/Taste: 3.5 out of 5 stars (due to greasy pizza)

Atmosphere: 4 out of 5 stars

Price: 4 out of 5 stars

Wow Factor: 4 out of 5 stars

Candy Coated Bacon: Strips of bacon brushed with a concoction of BBQ sauce, brown sugar, and cayenne pepper. When I saw this on the menu I had to order it. Caramelized sweet and spicy bacon. Uh-maze-ing!

Image

Pepperoni & Ham Pizza: The toppings were generous and the dough was that perfect balance of crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside. It really hit the spot. The only thing that we didn’t like was the amount of grease on the bottom of each slice. Of course, we still ate most of the pizza because it was still delicious, but there needed to be something between the pizza and the pan to absorb the grease.

Green Lantern is the perfect spot if you are craving pizza and a beer while enjoying your favorite sports game. They have flat screen TVs throughout the bar so you’ll never miss a play. Sign up for the email list for a chance at winning pizza for a year.

Foran’s Grand Trunk

Holly was in town so Janet and I met her @ Grand Trunk on Woodward in Detroit. The food is always amazing and this time was no different. The thing that I liked best about this visit was all the local ingredients. I just can’t get enough of this place.

Deep Fried Green Beans: served with house made Calder’s buttermilk ranch. The green beans were vibrant green, crunchy, and fresh. It tasted like they were fresh out of the garden. Well done!

Image

Breaded Mushrooms: The Calder’s buttermilk ranch was thick, rich and complimented the hot out of the fryer battered mushrooms. The breading was the perfect combo of light and crispy.

The Majestic: Featured from Eph’s Deli: Wigley’s corned beef, turkey breast, cheddar, 1000 Russians, Avalon 313 Onion-Poppyseed Roll served with Better Made Chips. The corned beef was slightly salty, yet sliced paper thin. The dressing wasn’t overwhelming and was light and tangy. Here comes the star of the show: the roll was amazing! Fresh from Avalon Internatioonal Breads, the onion-poppyseed combo was subtle, and the roll was light, buttery, and sweet. It was the best roll I’ve ever had.

The food was delicious and I was so full after. It was good catching up, thanks girls!

Green Dot Stables

As most of my followers know, I love me some Green Dot! Located on Lafayette in Detroit, MI, Green Dot Stables is a unique little bar offering some awesome food.

Tip: Try the mystery meat!

On the menu:

Gyro & Corned Beef

The Gyro was my favorite! Creamy cool tzatziki sauce slathered on top of tasty lamb. The corned beef had this tangy, slightly spicy mustard aioli which was amazing and reminded me of horseradish. It had a tiny kick that made my mouth water.

Image

Fried Bologna & Philly Cheesesteak

I just couldn’t pass up the fried bologna! Thick cuts tasted just like kielbasa. Perfect for a Polish girl like myself. The Philly Cheesesteak was tender and juicy.

Image

Venison Chili Cheese Fries: Better than any coney island chili cheese fries I’ve ever had.

I did try my brother’s Rabbit mystery meat with sliced sugar snap peas. It was light, lean, and delicious!

Another satisfying trip to Green Dot. If you haven’t been, you have to stop in. The menu changes so you can try new items and they offer weekly drink and mystery meat specials. Everything is priced fairly which allows you to try different things and not have to rack your brain with the menu. Don’t stress, just try it all!
