Spice makes everything nice (at Pal’s Indian Cuisine).


Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Mari and I was invited by Wendy to begin writing some vegetarian posts for Eat Local, West Michigan. A truly exciting prospect! This year I was thrilled to celebrate my 20th vegetarian anniversary in a little party with some close friends (we ate Thai food). I’m excited [...]

Public: A New Restaurant in Zeeland


For those who think Eastown gets all the good restaurants, I encourage you to give Public in Zeeland a try.

Grove {Restaurant Review}
