Worthwhile Trip: Shatila and Al Ameer Restaurant

Part I:

This weekend, my family and I visited family in Dearborn,MI. It was great to see family after three long years. Time flies.

If you love to experience different cultures, then it is a must- to visit Dearborn, Michigan. There you will experience the Arabic cultures--from food to dress. We went to Shatila, an Arabic bakery that specializes in Baklava, cookies, smoothies, pastries, and more. All were delicious.

After we went grocery for Arabic foods, we decided to eat at Al Ameer Restaurant, also in Dearborn, MI. As we walked in the restaurant, we see Arabic decorative theme as well as hearing Arabic music to the tune of Abdel Halim Hafez, a classical Egyptian singer. Our Arab waiter recommended his favorites of Al Ameer in details.  We ended up ordering Tabouleh, the Ameer Platter, and Buffalo Chicken Wings.  The food wasn't for for 3 people, it was probably more like 6-8 people.  We ended up taking the rest to go, as we left to Chicago.

If you like to experience new cultures, I highly recommend that you go to Dearborn, Michigan to experience the Arabic culture. You will experience the food, music, shows.  You name it.   You will not be disappointed.
