Just a quick cell-phone review of The Peterboro in Midtown Detroit. Serving up Chinese-American food with a fancier flair. It’s not your “eat out of a take-out box” Chinese food, but with the beautiful jade green tile and large tiger painting, you’ll want to sit down to eat anyway. Image courtesy Eater: Detroit We got a couple of “small plates”. BURNT EDAMAME soy, maldon sea salt These were absolutely delicious. CRISPY PORK BELLY five spice, sweet bean sauce The pork belly wasn’t very good; the skin wasn’t as crispy as I’d expected, and the meat and fat were quite chewy. Like, cheap squid chewy… It’s interesting that this isn’t listed…
As part of the intern program we’re given opportunities to check out various events and locations around Detroit. One such is an apartment building near Grand Circus Park called Detroit City Apartments. Not the best name (try googling it) but a nice building with a good price point for the offerings. This outing was hosted by the After 5 Intern Program, which strives to show new talent like graduates and interns coming to the city why they should stay in Detroit. We were treated to some snacks/light fare and a tour of a model 2 bedroom along with some of the building amenities.
