Grabbin' A Bite Reviews Curry Kitchen in Muskegon

Grabbin' A Bite Reviews Curry Kitchen in Muskegon

We couldn't wait for our first taste of authentic Indian food. When we heard through friends that Muskegon had a fairly new restaurant called Curry Kitchen, we headed there as soon as possible. Although this is not our typical stop, on a so-called back road, it is in the central part of Muskegon in an area that is struggling to return to former activity. So don't expect too much in the way of a pretty storefront or surroundings. Situated on 3rd Street, it would be unknown to tourists unless by advertisement or word of mouth.

Curry Kitchen opened in March of 2012, and is the only Indian restaurant of its kind along the Lakeshore of Western Michigan. I think I was looking for more ambiance and Indian culture, but some pieces were displayed on a ledge and a TV in the corner was showing Bollywood dancers with their colorful costumes and music.

Grabbin' A Bite Reviews G&L Chili Dogs in Muskegon

Grabbin' A Bite Reviews G&L Chili Dogs in Muskegon

Review of G&L Chili Dogs by Mike and Jane of Grabbin' A Bite:

Mike and I decided to take a trip down memory lane, and that meant a stop at G&L.


G&L was the place to visit for lunch while shopping in downtown Muskegon when I was growing up. My mother took me in there regularly in the '50s and as I became a teenager in the '60s, I often stopped in there with my friends.

Dates with Mike sometimes meant movies and "red hots" at the G&L.
 

G&L was started by two Greek immigrants in 1926 who wanted to get in on the quick-service restaurant style required by Muskegon's factory workers. Red hots, as they were called then, also known as Coney dogs, were served 24 hours a day to accommodate the workers.
