The Best of Everything)

THERE'S AN AREA in
Detroit that doesn't receive
much publicity . . . nothing
even remotely near that of
sectors like, say, Greektown
. . . Out-of-towners seem to
know more about it than
local folk . . . and the region
is where so many go when
reaching here.
This is Mexicotown . . . a
block on Vernor where
about 10 south-of-the-
border restaurants are con-
gregated . . . Within them is
one which seems to serve as
the "flagship" of all . . . Ar-
mando's . . . on the street 15
years . . . so very clean . . . so
very much like a Mexican
restaurant should look .. .
sloped ceiling, round wall
eaves tiles, framed velvet
portraits of Aztec, Mayan
and Inca warriors . . . huge
wall murals of Mexican
scenery . . . etc.

But Armando's wasn't
always such a well-noted
Mexican restaurant which
now seats 160 . . . and a
favorite mecca of celebrities
from sports and show busi-
ness . . . plus so many
everyday lovers of such au-
thenticity in Mexican fare.
Back in 1968, Armando
Galan and his wife Joyce
bought a little grocery
store on the corner of
Vernor and Clarkdale (a
block north of Clark) ...
and turned it into a
carry-out operation with
counter plus 11 stools .. .
They had originally
opened a Mexican res-
taurant in 1965 on Vernor
and Fisher Freeway . . .
after Armando left the
London Chop House .. .
He had started there as a
busboy and within three
months, the late Les
Gruber insisted that Ar-
mando be made one of his
fine waiters.
The little carry-out
owned by Armando and
Joyce soon outgrew itself
. . . the building next door
was bought and seating
made for 65 more . . . then
came the building next to it
. . . and Armando's had in-
creased still another 65.
There's parking in the
rear, where people can enter
. . . or in the front, with og-
lers looking about the origi-
nal Armando's which is still
a carry-out . . . but without
seats . . . and much more
lavish . . . showcase with
shellfish galore . . . another
with French (that's correct,
French) pastries made on
the premises by Lori Marka,
formerly of Restaurant
such very
Duglass
ultra-
sumptuous,
delicious-looking delights
that seemingly warn people
to leave room for one of
them.
A double swinging door
separates Armando's
carry-out from his wonder-
ful restaurant . . . Push the
doors and you enter the
likes of another world .. .
with seating in high-backed
padded chairs or still an-
other small room with high
padded soft booths . . . and
an area for dancing .. .
where the very fine Carlos
Andres has come direct
from Mexico to entertain on
Armando's piano, Wednes-
day through Sunday, 9 p.m.
til 2 a.m.
Waitresses like Evelyn
Aldape are a joy . . . Her ef-
ficiency, courteous ways,
pleasantness and im-
mediate attentiveness .. .
coupled with a winning
smile ... made the evening
most enjoyable.
There were six of us .. .
Evelyn brought pitchers of
Margaritas and Sangrias
. . . made with fresh fruit .. .
warm tostadas (and it's so
important that they be
warm) . . . guacamole . .
and appetizer of Cam-
pachana (Pico de Guio —
tomatoes, jalapenos, onions,
salt, pepper, garlic, cilantro,
mixed in a special tomato

sauce with shrimp and av-
ocado).
Armando can go into the
kitchen and make every-
thing on his large extensive
menu . . . He is an ex-
tremely talented man .. .
hard-working . . . someone
known for doing things from
the heart . . . whose life is in
his business.
As an outside man, walk-
ing about greeting people,
Armando has very few
equals . . . and it is highly
delightful to know he won't
run anymore restaurants
where his presence isn't
seen by customers coming
in looking for him . . . Ar-
mando's on Vernor and
Clarkdale is the only spot
for him now . . . and he is
always there saying hello
and goodbye with pleasant
graciousness.
Joyce was in the
kitchen while we were
there . . . and her prowess
as a chef is with very high
calibre because of such
authenticity.
Evelyn brought us four
new specials . . . Armando's
Seafood Fiesta (shrimp,
mussels, clams, monkfish
and crablegs, simmered in a
spicy tomato sauce and
poured over rice) . . . Carne
Asada (skirt steak mari-
nated in a special wine
sauce, served with fried on-
ions, guacamole, stuffed
with spinach, broiled and
covered with melted
cheese).
Like I said, if possible
leave some room for a lu-
scious piece of Lori's pas-
tries . . . Evelyn brought a
most tempting tray, and
though sinful as it was,
most of those at our table
couldn't resist the utter
temptations . . . I had apple
pie with caramel glaze .. .
and tasted a couple of other
dessert elegantes.
The authentic Mexican
food prepared by Joyce was
superb . . . not too hot (al-
though you can have it any
way desired) and excel-
lently flavored to bring out
tastebud goodness, indeed.
Armando's is open
seven days a week .
Sunday-Thursday, 10:30
a.m. to 3 a.m. . .. Friday
and Saturday til 4 a.m... .
In about a month, he'll
have the only authentic
Mexican buffet ... with
about 200 Mexican dishes
spread over a period of
time . . . each day of the
week featuring at least 15
delicacies ... It'll be open
for lunch Monday-
Friday, 10:30 to 3, $4.39
. . . and dinner Monday
and Tuesday, 5 to 10, all-
you-can-eat, $5.95.
There's much to Arman-
do's ... It is real authentic-
ity in a very pleasant at-
mosphere . . . The food is
outstanding ... service
couldn't be better . . . and
Armando's Mexican Res-
taurant also has that extra
prime ingredient . . . true
character . . . resulting in a
