East Lansing’s Eateries

Filed under: Uncategorized — pcryderman8 @ 7:56 pm

What a great excursion into the unknown as we walked to Grand River and cruised the strip. We took in “Bubble Island,” “Flats Grill,” “Iggy’s,” “Cosi,” “Cold Stone Creamery,” “India Palace,” and “Georgio’s.”

What an interesting drink “Bubble Tea” is. This was my first experience with the drink, but it certainly won’t be my last. Fruity, sweet, and an interesting combination of lycee bubbles and other bubbles that I can’t recall at this juncture. Anyway, the feel of the bubbles on my tongue reminded me of small grapes (but much, much sweeter.)

“Flat’s” Monterrey Jack Cheese Flat sandwich was an interesting experience. As Jack stated, “It seems to be a combo of quesadillas, grilled cheese (and, by the way, we baked liked toasted cheeses on the walk to and from) and popcorn.” Jack, that says it all!

Gary Ignat, the owner of “Iggy’s,” gave our writers bowls of Mooney’s flavorful ice cream at his neat little shop. We all enjoyed the ambiance and atmosphere that is “Iggy’s.” Our campers were very intrigued with the idea that it is A-OK to write on the walls of the establishment.

The Indian restaurant enveloped our noses with some very interesting aromas, mostly on the spicy side. Also, the native music seemed to fit in the restaurant in a most unique and appropriate manner.

All in all, the trip was a hot, but fun, exercise introducing us to the culinary delights of downtown East Lansing.



  1. It is coldstone creamery, not stone cold.

  2. Thanks, Jack. The heat must have fried my brain. I fixed it by editing.
