Restaurants Galore
Offer. Plenty of Choices

T

he Mystery Muncher
writes . . . about
munching around

town.
"If you're an aficianado of
Oriental food, take a ride to
Orchard Lake Road south of
Maple to Mandarin House.
The restaurant is small and
unpretentious, but the food is
delicately prepared and the
service very courteous. For an
authentic treat, try the moo
shu shrimp with crepes, a
dish our waiter proudly told
us is served to royalty in the
Far East.
"If you've never ordered the
Hong Kong chicken at Hoa
Kow Inn on Nine Mile and
Coolidge in Oak Park, you're
missing an experience in
delicious dining. The chicken
comes sizzling on a platter
and looks as succulent as it
tastes. It's made with subtle
spices and is done to perfec-
tion. The long-popular Hoa
Kow keeps packing them in
and it's no wonder.
"You don't have to be a
meat eater to enjoy Chuck
Joseph's Place For Steak on
12 Mile and Coolidge in
Berkley. Our favorite is the
tiny, tender frog legs in this
attractive dining spot. Din-
ners come with such starters
as meatballs, cottage cheese
and chick peas to take the
edge off your appetite.
"The chic but casual at-
mosphere of Appeteaser's on
Ring Road and Woodward is
charming with its soft, muted
lights and peach and mauve
decor. The bloody marys are a
mini-appetizer in themselves,
served with salami, cheese,
olive, mushroom, tomato and
cucumber on a skewer. The
bread tray offers a variety of
goodies from matzah to sweet
buns. We had chicken salad
for lunch and it was delicious.
Dinner includes everything
from French dip to full-course
meals such as creative pastas,
seafood and rack of lamb. The
service is top notch.
"We ordered scallops
Primarvera twice in a week,
once at Southfield Charley's
on 12 Mile and Evergreen
and again at Northfield
Charley's in the Northfield
Hilton in Troy. The prices
vary from the more casual
Southfield restaurant to the
elegant dining spot in Troy
where the lively piano music
sometimes jars, especially if
you're trying to converse.
"If you're hungry and in a
laid-back frame of mind,

Southfield Charley's may be
a better bet. If you're not star-
ving and patience is one of
your virtues, Northfield
Charley's continental type
dining may be for you. The
food in these totally-different
atmospheres is seldom
disappointing.
"Dinner at the Machus Red
Fox on Telegraph south of
Maple is another leisurely ex-
perience. You can feast your
eyes on the beautiful wood-
dominated rooms with
elegant appointments. The
famous Machus salad is a
must. You may not have an
appetite for much else, but
the priced entrees are
palate-pleasers.
"Out Rochester way is the
cozy Cooper's Arms which
specializes in prime rib. For
the health and diet conscious,
the broiled whitefish is
recommended. Seafood lovers
will find plenty of variety on
the menu.
"The nautical atmosphere
at Scallops, also in Rochester,
is carried out from the rough
barn woods and lead glass
featuring nautical scenes to
the seashell pattern on the
dinnerware. Living up to its
name, scallops prepared in a
variety of ways are tasty as
are the shrimp, lobster and
crab dishes.
"You may not think of
ordering frog legs in a
Lebanese restaurant like
Phoenicia on Woodward in
Birmingham. But they're
tiny, tender, crispy without
frying, and as tasty as we've
had anywhere. The hummus
clipped in the wonderful bread
is a great starter and the rice
pudding is a satisfying and
delicious finale to your meal.
The lamb dishes, of course,
are house specialties.
"Not being a lover of Mex-
ican food, I can't rate Casa
Lupita on Big Beaver in Troy.
The rambling restaurant is
always packed and the make-
it-yourself Mexican dishes
seem to be popular. Of course,
after a couple of margaritas
and a platter of nachos with
guacamole dip, who cares
about the rest? You may call
the place unique or ersatz
Mexican. But lots of folks
seem to enjoy Case Lupita.
"Dennison's on Orchard
Lake near 12 Mile is a mecca
for seafood buffs. Whether
your choice is lobster,
mussels, frog legs, scallops or
tidbits from the raw bar,
you'll be glad you tried this
comfortable, pleasant dining
spot. Your best bet is to fre-
quent this restaurant on Sun-
