There's no shortage of restaurants in Metro Detroit, from American fare to ethnic eats, including Middle Eastern, Mexican, Thai and Italian.
On Thursday, Deadline Detroit will launch its new, twice-monthly restaurant show called "Detroit Digest." We'll explore spots around town, with an emphasis on the less known. On occasion, we'll throw in one you definitely know.
The two stars of the show are foodies and local actors, Kyle Sammy and Carlos Parisi, two personable guys who enjoy a good nosh.
In our first show, we'll take you to Southwest Detroit to what is regarded as the best taco and burrito food truck in the city.
Sammy Kyle loves to eat! Being a food enthusiast in Detroit allows him to gravitate to all cultures of food. Though he has a lot of experience in the art of consumption, he's always willing and eager to try new eateries. Give this man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach him to fish and he'll find some one to make filets."
Carlos Parisi began his Detroit food career in 2009 with his company Aunt Nee's, selling chips, salsa and guacamole. Since then he has worked alongside the food community with partnerships and pop ups and brands such as McClure's Pickles to help them grow. He currently co-operates two active Pop Ups ("Khana" and "Swerve"), while still throwing food parties and events on the side. He is also the host of the "Sandwich Talk" Podcast, and a contributing food columnist for the J'adore Detroit Blog. When not in Detroit's food scene, he travels for food inspiration and enjoyment at any opportunity and conducts food tours in Mexico City. Follow him at @carlos_parisi on Instagram for food updates."
