Finally, all settled into my new place and ready to get back to sharing my foodie adventures! Let’s get started, shall we? A few weeks ago, Mandy and I went out for belated birthday drinks (Thanks, Mandy!) and decided to check out Detroit Shipping Co. We were looking for something casual with a variety of options. Detroit Shipping Co was just the place!
Detroit Shipping Co, which opened in July 2018 is constructed of refashioned shipping containers. The space consists of a handful of unique restaurants and two full service bars. Experience art, music, and retailers in addition to delicious food and drinks. Detroit Shipping Co will host nightly and weekend events. September’s Vendors include Brujo Tacos & Tapas, Bangkok 96 Street Food & Coop Caribbean Fusion, plus Armadillo Printwear & Podcast Detroit (awesome).
One of the occupants of the Detroit Shipping Co, Bangkok 96 Street Food is killing it with their unique creations!
Thai Pizza: Flatbread made out of tortilla and topped with mozzarella, spinach, cilantro, red onion, tomato, crushed peanuts, and Thai sauce. The red onion paired well with the sweet from the sauce and the heat from the Thai chilies. I have to say, I am a fan of “salad” on pizza. It brightens it up the pie and tricks my brain into thinking carbs smothered in cheesy, greasy goodness are actually healthy and won’t make my stomach hurt later. The tortilla was a nice touch, crispy with thin crust pizza vibes. Overall, I would definitely order this again.
Pad Thai Roll: Pad Thai Noodles and fried tofu rolled inside a tortilla and topped with crushed peanuts, scallions, and Pad Thai sauce. Hats off to the uniqueness and creativity of this dish. I haven’t had anything like it! I wasn’t sure how the tortilla would play out, but it worked well. The flavor was on point, slightly spicy with notes of salty, sour, and sweet. The only thing I would suggest is to add a crunch to the inside of the roll such as shredded cabbage or carrot.
We also got tres tacos from Brujo Tacos & Tapas. Starting left to right, Beef Barbacoa, Chicken, and Curry Cauliflower (really good!) served on freshly made corn tortillas. One thing that stood out was that these tacos were packed full of flavor. The purple cabbage added texture and the crema balanced the spice. There is nothing like a homemade corn tortilla!
The food hall was smaller than I expected, but it’s pretty cool. I am super indecisive so I like the different options under one roof. You get quality dishes and generous portions at reasonable prices. Coming soon to Detroit Shipping Co: Coffee & Creamery, Motor Burger, & Bread Meats Bread. If you haven’t checked out Detroit Shipping Co, stop in and see what it’s all about!
