This weekend, we visited my parents and had take-out from Country Chicken Restaurant. Wait, I know what you’re thinking….why on earth would a vegan eat at a place called Country Chicken Restaurant? Country is actually a Middle Eastern restaurant so you can’t let the name throw you. I originally found out about the restaurant from my college professor Mr.Mustafa . He assured me they had vegetarian items and he was right! They have a small but delicious vegetarian selection. In my personal opinion, they have the best fattoush salad in all of Dearborn. I’ve mentioned this before, Dearborn has a large Arabic population and MANY Middle Eastern restaurants.
We each had some fattoush, a falafel sandwich, and we split an order of vegetarian grape leaves. My parents did not eat vegan food (except the fattoush) but since they were footing the bill, I’m not going to complain. LOL Although we had take-out this time, we’ve eaten there many times. They recently remodeled the restaurant too. I also like that Country is reasonably priced. Even my grandma thinks so. If a 95-year-old woman thinks it’s a good deal, you know it must be true!
You can tell we ate at my parents’ house because of Blue Willow dishes pictured.
