Detroit specialities?

MC Slim JB | Jan 12, 2006 03:10 PM

I'm planning a Super Bowl party, and would like to serve some dishes that are special to Detroit.

My research shows (to my surprise) that Detroit is the birthplace of the Coney Island hot dog: nice! (I ate a lot of these growing up, from a Coney Island specialty hot dog parlor in Eastern Massachusetts called Tex Barry's Coney Island Hot Dogs, for real.)

But I can't identify anything else that seems unique to the city. Any help?
