La Feria in Detroit on Cass, near Wayne State.. This little hideaway we found in January is AMAZING!. We found this place on 1/18 when we were actually attempting to go to the Whitney. We missed our reservations and decided to try it out. This food is amazingly fresh, hot, delicious, aromatic and filling. La Feria is a Spanish Tapas Bar in the heart of Detroit near Wayne State. It's smile but very welcoming and inviting. On our first experience this was our menu
Grilled Pork, Cumin, Rice Sausage.
My palate is SO sensitive, that most times I don't eat out. I can not only smell every herb, but fully taste every ingredient. And listen, a lot of people cook with cumin, but incorrectly. This sausage is a little charred, but soft, almost a buttery texture with the perfect amount of cumin. The marriage of the subtle flavors ignite the sense and awaken the taste buds.
Grilled Portabella. Sauce of Parsley, Lemon & Garlic
These mudrooms were impeccably divine. I could have had a little more of the sauce drizzled. But I think that can be determined by each patron. Too much might overwhelm the freshness of the mushroom.
Fried Cod. Adobo Seasoning
We're committed to trying a new dish every time we go. This was also a very delightful surprise to our taste buds. The cod was crunchy on the outside and soft and meaty on the inside. Not thin or watery, but very full pieces of fresh fish.
Even as I'm writing this food blog my stomach is calling me to La Feria.. "Fight the rain and go Shawn" It's saying.. and I might just answer.. It's only been two weeks but I'm jones-ing for it!
La Feria is small and you may have to wait for a table. But trust me when I tell you, it's more than worth the wait!
