A little taste of West Michigan!

This past week, The Grand Rapids Press published an interesting article about the many ethnic restaurants popping up in our own back yard here in West Michigan. Living in Chicago for a few years really opened our eyes to eclectic foods and has been something that we missed and felt was always lacking here....not any more!! There are many wonderful places to enjoy and experience International cuisine.

For a helpful guide, please view: Ethnic Restaurants

Yet another reason West Michigan rocks!!
