    We began our 24 hour sandwich tour of Detroit at Katoi where we ate this insane crispy rice flour fried chicken sandwich with coconut ranch, green papaya salad, cilantro + pickled jalapeños on brioche. This is also where we met Jordan Balduf, a local chef and food lover who helped guide our sandwich tour!

    501 Monroe Ave, Detroit, MI 48226

    Based in Greektown Detroit, Santorini Estiatorio, is a beautiful new Greek restaurant that takes pride in their creations. We stuck to the classic path and tried their lamb gyro which was absolutely amazing. Filled with tender chunks of spiced lamb that basically melted in our mouths paired with sweet fresh tomatoes, spicy red onions, and tangy tzatziki sauce on a beautiful buttery toasted pita, this Greek wrap was everything we could...MORE of dreamt of and more.

    The Detroit Institute of Bagels is not to be missed. House made Montreal style bagels topped with an array of seasonal ingredients provided a great way to start the day. Our favorite was the pimento cheese, avocado, tomato, egg. Not pictured: The smoked bacon and chocolate chip cookie that we woofed down in about three seconds.

    We started one of our mornings at Astro Coffee where we devoured two of their amazing breakfast sandwiches. The first was a toasted croissant with a sliced medium boiled egg, sharp cheddar, caramelized onions and lemony dressed local greens. The second sandwich was simple yet totally divine. Thick slices of toasted sourdough bread smothered with fresh avocado, lemon and dill.

    American Coney Island

    114 W Lafayette Blvd, Detroit, MI 48226

    Family owned and operated since 1917 and located right next door to its competitor, Lafayette Coney Island, American Coney Island is a staple in the Motor City fast food scene. We got their classic #Detroit coney dog slathered in chili, mustard, onions + cheese (which was added bc I can't not add cheese).
