Canadian pastry chain opens metro Detroit food truck

Prolific Canadian doughnut chain BeaverTails has arrived in Detroit with a new food truck. Founded in 1978 at a regional fair, the company is known for its elephant ear-like fried pastries called BeaverTails. Each pastry is topped with options like apple pie filling, crushed cookies, and cinnamon sugar, according to a release. The mobile fried dough outpost opens on Friday, May 10 alongside many other food vendors at 23302 W Warren Ave. in Dearborn Heights for the Ramadan Suhoor Festival. In addition to the sweet options, there’s also some savory items like the unfortunately named “PouTail” — a pastry slathered in poutine.

Instagram-styled ice cream cones head to Dearborn

Expect to see quite a few unicorn ice cream cones filling metro Detroit Instagram feeds this month. A limited-run, cash-only ice cream stand called Fantasy Scoops has set up shop at La Pita at 22681 Newman St. in Dearborn from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. during Ramadan. The stand serves items like the Unicorn Dream — an ice cream scooped into a bubble waffle cone with unicorn candy toppings — and the Around the Campfire with a chocolate bubble waffle, ice cream, and toasted marshmallow toppings. There’s also an ice cream cone topped with a cotton candy cloud, because of course there is.

Sushi favorite unveils expansion

Metro Detroit sushi destination Noble Fish unveiled its expanded dining room last weekend. The beloved Clawson restaurant, which used to serve food in a tiny dining space at the back of a market, has doubled its capacity as a result of the renovation. Noble Fish also introduced a new ordering system where customers select their items off a sheet, pay at the counter, and then pass along the paper to the sushi chefs.
