DETROIT FLEAT DEBUTS IN FERNDALE

DETROIT FLEAT DEBUTS IN FERNDALE

We’re used to waiting in line for our favorite food trucks at Eastern Market and in Campus Martius and then we watch the trucks roll away until next time. Now, with Detroit Fleat in Ferndale, a couple staple food trucks are there to stay at the area’s first food truck park and boozery. Detroit Fleat opens at 5 p.m. on July 7 on Nine Mile Road.

Detroit Fleat itself is a small restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, wine and beer offerings, choices of craft cocktails and a menu of bar food items like sliders and tacos. The kitchen will also mix up ice cream floats using local ingredients.

Three food trucks–Delectabowl, Mac Shack and Pita Post–will find permanent homes at Detroit Fleat, in addition to having other trucks so they can still pop up around town where you’re used to seeing them.

There will also be space for a fourth truck to set-up shop on the weekends, and the guest star will rotate to keep you on your toes. You’ll probably also see the famous Drifter Coffee blue truck around Detroit Fleat quite often.

DELECTABOWL– bowls of delight for any kind of foodie (vegetarian, vegan, potato smashin’, meat lovin’)
Try: The Comfort Bowl / Corn bread base, Slow cooked BBQ meat of the day, Michigan cherry coleslaw, cheddar cheese, topped with homemade BBQ sauce

MAC SHACK– exactly what you think it is…some of the best mac and cheese around
Try: The Papa Smurf / Shack-Made Mac topped with wild mushrooms, caramelized onions, and shaved parmesan.

PITA POST– pitas and salad bowls made fresh daily with top-notch ingredients (gluten free and vegan options, but also meat)
Try: The Not Yo’Mama, But Shawarma / marinated chicken, hummus, cucumber tomato salad, green cabbage, pickles topped with tahini sauce
