"Master sushi chef, Elmer Bionson, serves authentic sushi and Japanese cuisine at Azumi's Garden in Auburn Hills. Drawing on culinary influences of the Far East, Mr. Bionson tastefully pulls together the finest dishes from Japan, China, the Philippines, Thailand, Korea, and Vietnam.
Azumi's primary focus is moderately-priced take-out for the time being with soft drinks and bottled water."
"An EMU student favorite, and not just because it's dirt cheap. Not big on atmosphere, but the meals are tasty. New additions to the menu in honor of their recent move."
"Authentic Vietnamese and Chinese food."
More than 250 Vietnamese and Chinese dishes. Vegetarian dishes include appetizers, soups, rice and noodle dishes...hot and spicy to your taste. Spicy dishes include curry, sate, roti, chili, Shanghai noodle, special pepper and grilled dishes. **
This "mini"-spot serves Vietnamese food at its best: a wonderful combination of contrasting textures and subtle tastes. If Chinese food is a symphony, Vietnamese is chamber music. Soups, such as vegetable congee, are highlights, or try the amazing variety of bean drinks and exotic fruit slushes. ****
Oslo patrons can choose between sushi and a longish list of superior Thai dishes; the sushi is sliced and rolled by Korean-born John Riney. Tom kha, the soup with coconut milk and chicken, is both creamy and salty, with generous chunks of chicken. Drunken noodles are peppery yet luscious, the noodles fat and slippery, with a fold-in garnish of fresh basil leaves. Equally delicious was a “signature” dish called simply “Oslo Udon Noodles.” Chicken and shrimp and the usual vegetables join wide noodles of a pleasing firmness in a faintly sweet and certainly hot garlic sauce. Almost all the signatures feature garlic, and none coconut milk, so now you know Chef Rossbach’s tastes.
Pho Hang is a strip-mall storefront on an unlovely strip of Dequindre Road, but who cares: 31 of Pho Hang’s generous entrées can be had for $6, 11 cost $7, and only 14 cost $8 or more. Diners find the real deal at Pho Hang, where they'll get the lightness and, yes, grace of Vietnamese soups, with their strong yet clear broths and arrays of fresh garnishes.
Commerce along the thoroughfares of Madison Heights and Warren isn't pretty. Aging strip malls and asphalt parking lots are the dominant aesthetic. But what these arteries lack in architectural character is made up by a vibrant Southeast Asian community and the abundant restaurants and food markets that cater to it. Within a few square miles, particularly around the area where 13 Mile Road intersects Dequindre, it's easy to find everything from exotic fruit smoothies adorned with tapioca pearls that are sucked in through oversized straws to banh mi sandwiches filled with various processed meat parts such as liver paste and pork skin.
Innovative and unique menu at this breakast and lunch restaurant.
Pleasant decor and ambiance.
Fresh leafy greens and herbs characterize the Vietnamese food served at Thang Long. Try the fresh and flavorful summer rolls, or do it yourself with an order of Thit Bo, which lets you wrap your own chicken, beef or pork. Also excellent are the rice noodle soups, which are meals in themselves. ***
This joint is named after the late Vietnamese- American actress Thuy Trang. "Authentic Vietnamese cuisine, featuring several 'cook your own' dishes."

Atlanta’s Black Lips are on the road touring behind their newest release, Underneath the Rainbow, and their garage punk tornado will be touching down at the Magic Stick. Wild live shows, including vomit, chickens, fire and some decidedly distasteful nudity have given the Black Lips a reputation for being a must-see band. While they maintain the rawness that has always been present in their sound, their new album has a greasier sheen to it that gives the band even more flamboyance. Natural Child and Duane: The Brand New Dog will open the show.
Take a nine-piece band from Brooklyn, a raspy lead-singer from Ghana and the sounds of punk, jazz and swing, and you get a hybrid of sounds that can only be described as a cohesive mess. The formula works for Osekre & the Lucky Bastards, a band that has been described by New York radio station WBAI as “the new Fela.” This band is unlike anything that has come before it and might just be the start of a musical revolution that you surely don’t want to miss. What’s more, they’re stopping in Detroit for a free show.
Hockeytown is synonymous with good beer and good times, so why should the BrewHaHa be any different? The event starts by teasing the palate with a firkin happy hour, which will include three 4-ounce servings of custom brews made exclusively for the event. Following that will be an optional tour of the Joe and a five-course gourmet meal with beer pairings. In addition, MotorCity Casino Hotel is offering a special rate with complimentary transportation to and from the event.
The first DMAs were held in 1992, and since their inception, they’ve featured some of Detroit’s most notable artists onstage, including such national acts as Eminem, Kid Rock, Martha Reeves, Ted Nugent, Smokey Robinson and Insane Clown Posse. However, regional performers make up the majority of talented nominees, and the 2014 award season looks exciting with a promising list of performers in categories that range from industrial to R&B.
The San Francisco trio’s experimental, freeweheeling take on guitar-based pop (punctuated by frontwoman Satomi Matsuzaki’s crazed, childlike vocal delivery) has made them a favorite of the likes of Pitchfork for years. Call it art rock, call it no wave, call it indie prog, call it whatever — with every release the band attempts to sound completely different, and in that inconsistency they are nothing if not consistent (hell, the band is notorious for sounding completely different at the end of a song than they did at the begining). It’s fun, yet difficult stuff — right at home in an art museum.
live music, fabulous hors d’oeuvres, complimentary wine, cash bar, early buying opportunities. Plus see this year’s pristine vintage automobile display. Benefits the Detroit Area Art Deco Society.
