Eat your veggies

Local food truck and caterer, Nosh Pit, has expanded its restaurant operation (formerly located in Hamtramck, it closed in January 2021) to Royal Oak. The eatery, which specializes in vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free cuisine, is co-owned by Karen Kahn and Stefan Kudek. The new location, located at 304 N. Main Street, Royal Oak, will accommodate seating for 78 including an outdoor patio. Menu favorites include mac un cheese, a nondairy grilled mac experience which the owners brag is the best vegan mac around; mozz cheese stix, homemade vegan mozzarella cheese in seasoned breadcrumbs; and the Larry sandwich, a corned “beet” Reuben. Co-owner Kahn says the restaurant was built with the help of the community. “Over the last few months, through donations and people who just showed up to help, we built up this restaurant by hand to keep our staff members working through our closure. The ceilings were painted by a customer, the walls were painted by staff and volunteers. Hand painted signs and art is all by our staff,” she pointed out. “We aren’t building a fancy food experience – we are building a community for Detroit vegans and people who want to experience eating a wholly veggie meal.”
