My entire life I grew up saying that the best bagels were in Detroit. Although almost none of the delis or restaurants of my youth still exist I’ve yet to come across a better wheel of dough anywhere in the world. And did you know that the Coney Dog was invented in Detroit?! Not at Coney Island; all they did there was add the onions. But chili on top of a steaming dog is all the Motor City’s.

Here are some of the munch spots I hit this trip to Detroit. I tend to go to the same places over and over again so by no means is this the definitive list. But if you’re in Detroit and haven’t been to any of these places grab your keys and get going! More Detroit munch palacesĀ here.
