From delectable cheesecake tacos to crispy fried chicken and slurpable noodles, check out some of our favorite foodie finds in the 806!

Fried Chicken at Dirk’s

Perfectly breaded chicken is the pride of this locally owned fried chicken stop. Savor each bite on its own or with one of their homemade sauces.

Cauliflower Rice at Crafthouse

As do most tasty dishes, this gluten free/vegan option pairs with different flavors weekly. This week just so happens to feature sweet potatoes, fried baby kale, and toasted almonds. 

Breakfast at Flipper’s Tavern

Make plans this Sunday to savor the weekly brunch flavors at Flipper’s. We’re drooling just thinking about two sunny-side up eggs with bacon and roasted potatoes. Served with a homemade biscuit and jam, it’s the perfect balance of savory and sweet.

Drunken Noodles at Mai Thai Kitchen

The secret is out, or at least it is now. The drunken noodles, also known as Pad Kee Mao, at Mai Thai are heavenly. Eggs, broccoli, bell pepper, and green onion are just a few of the ingredients which comprise this noteworthy dish. 

Penne a la Vodka Stella’s

Pancetta and Italian herbs meet in a delectable tomato vodka cream sauce to create this savory dish. Don’t miss out on pairing this pasta with one of the signature martinis! 

Cheesecake Tacos at Rave On

We are raving about this tasty sweet dish! They start with a cinnamon sugar fried tortilla and top it with cheesecake filling and fruit compote. Drizzles with butterscotch and sprinkled with macadamia nuts, this dessert will leave you wanting more.
