Downtown Royal Oak Hot Spot: The Morrie
The first thing I noticed was The Morrie was all about the music. I worked at Blockbuster Music for five years while I was attending college and those were some memorable days for me. So, music always takes me away to a special place where I can relive memories for a little bit.I joined a bunch of local bloggers for our feast at The Morrie. The waitress recommended trying The Train in Vain B-Side. I went back and forth because she also had recommended a coconut drink, but I was not really in the mood for a warm drink. This cocktail reminded me of a pear martini. If you're a pear fan, this is perfect for you.
I did manage to nab some kung pao cauliflower and let me tell you it was fantastic. I'm not a cauliflower fan, but I promise you I could have devoured the whole appetizer. So good!!!!
While we were enjoying our food, a live band started to perform. If you enjoy music check out The Morrie live music schedule. They even have a house band!
Finally, the main course. I learned that The Morrie makes its own bread. I love fresh bread, so this really impressed me! I selected the B.E.A.L.T with sweet potato tots for my dinner. I love BLT's and pork so I thought I would give this combination a try. The sandwich is made of pork belly, bacon, fried egg, arugula, tomato, avocado, basil mayo and sourdough bread.
Honestly, the sandwich was great, but for some reason, I didn't feel like the egg worked flavor wise. I thought it was a little overpowering on the sandwich. The sweet potato tots were outstanding and cooked perfectly.
I had a minor family emergency and had to leave before my favorite course, dessert. I did enjoy checking out all of the delectable treats on Instagram. This girl was jealous!
Would I recommend The Morrie? Why yes! I would love to visit again and take my husband. Also, I need to go back for dessert!
