“The best udon noodle soup I’ve ever had. This place holds nothing but good memories for me, and I always have to make a pit stop when I’m in Novi visiting family.If you’re a sushi lover, you can’t go wrong with the lunch special: it always includes a chef’s special roll or mini chirashi bowl partnered with their spectacular udon. What makes it so good is the broth: it’s full of satisfying umami flavor without being salty or bland. It’s just delicious.If you’re not feeling like raw fish, try the ajishin bowl, which is their famous udon topped with tempura veggies and shrimp. I would also wholly recommend their beef curry, which comes with white rice and tempura shrimp.Fair warning, the line gets very long and the wait can be horrendous if you show up at the wrong time. But it’s really worth the wait- promise!” — Valerie B. on Yelp

We could all use a little comfort right about now. Not only is it winter in Michigan, which means we get roughly 39 seconds of sunlight a day, but there’s a pandemic out there and we don’t want to leave our damn houses (and really shouldn’t at all). But no one says we can’t get our fill of mac n’ cheese, meatloaf, pho, or chicken and waffles, because that’s kind of all we want right now. We’ll worry about our hemorrhaging DoorDash/GrubHub budget later and, well, we’ll deal with the 20 lbs. we’ve put on in the last three weeks at some point in the future. What’s most important is that we care for ourselves, and support our local restaurants by getting loads and loads of comfort food-to-go. Seasons change, people come and go, but comfort food? Comfort food is here to stay. Now excuse us while we salivate over these 25 metro Detroit restaurants and their comfort food-leaning menus.

(This is an all-time list of the best spots for comfort food in the greater Detroit area, according to Yelp.
