After having to wait out the crazy storm, Chris and I were starving, so we picked a place in close walking distance to our AirBnB. We stopped by a shack with some of the most amazing food we’ve ever had. Righteous Cuisine is a fusion of two of my favorite cuisines: barbecue and Mexican food. The chicken nachos were a great size with unique ingredients, and I loved the brisket taco with slaw, apple and parsnip purée, queso, cilantro, and pickled carrots. Chris and I also shared the chicken taco, which had sweet potato salad, queso cotija, chipotle yogurt, and cilantro. We loved it so much, we have even encouraged my in-laws to try it next time they are visiting us.
While walking the Grand Haven Boardwalk, Chris had to try a Pronto Pup. A Pronto Pup is like a corn dog, but it is made with a pancake-based batter instead of corn flour. The Pronto Pup kiosk has been in Grand Haven since 1947, so we knew we wanted to try the tradition. Since we had already eaten dinner, I just tried part of Chris’s Pronto Pup, and I’ve got to say the batter really is delicious. I don’t usually eat corn dogs, but I can definitely see the appeal of Pronto Pups.
Morning Star Café
Before heading out on our next adventure, Chris and I had breakfast at the Morning Star Café. It was a vibrant breakfast and lunch place with a Southwest emphasis. I had one of the biggest, most delicious homemade cinnamon rolls I’ve ever had, and Chris loved his pancakes. I am not the biggest fan of breakfast food (crazy, I know), but I would still love to go back here and have another cinnamon roll.
