Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

Today is a mixed bag!

First, happy Cinco de Mayo! Looking for authentic Mexican food? Here are some great suggestions from other readers on the best food in Mexicantown.

Second, don’t forget Mother’s Day is this Sunday. If you're looking for a spot to take your mom out to brunch this is a good list to choose from.

Lastly, it has been two months since the catastrophic earthquakes and tsunami in Japan. Ronin Sushi in Royal Oak is serving up some mouth-watering features throughout the month of May with 50% of the proceeds going to the Red Cross to aid the victims of the disasters. Sapporo USA is also matching donations, dollar-for-dollar.

The “rotating chalkboard features” are:

  • Feature maki roll ($14): Pineapple tempura, spicy tuna & fresh cucumber wrapped in green soy paper. 
  • Feature cocktail ($10): Cucumber vodka, Momokawa Pearl sake, lychee & lemonade, shaken and served over ice.   
  • Feature dessert ($8): Housemade vanilla bean flan with caramel, fresh berries and whipped cream. 

Stop by Ronin throughout May and you can help the people of Japan just by grabbing a bite at one of the coolest spots in the area.
