Tastes Like Chicken – The Hungry Dudes Road Trip to Frankenmuth

If you’ve lived in Michigan for longer than a decade or so, it’s likely you’ve visited the quaint town of Frankenmuth. For those that have not had the pleasure, it’s something to add to your bucket list as there are plenty of attractions worth checking out. We started our adventure at the very popular Tony’s I-75 Restaurant right across from Birch Run Premium Outlets. If you’ve never been to Tony’s, picture food quantities that would have been featured on the Flintstones.

After sharing this hearty breakfast, we made our way over to Bavarian Inn of Frankenmuth to sit with Dorothy Zehnder, who has been cooking in her family’s restaurant for over 60 years, and talked with her about her newly released cookbook, Come Cook with Me.  We were then treated to her famous Chicken Dinner and a variety of dishes, most of which are among the 290 recipes in the cookbook.  It did not disappoint.

After our dinner at the Bavarian Inn, we visited SugarHigh, a gourmet pastry shop in the River Place Shops, where we got to sample their delicious cupcakes and pieces of chocolate-covered bacon. It was great to spend time talking with Heather Rousseau, a 23-year-old who owns and runs the bakery along with her husband Adam, about what it’s been like to open a store at such a young age.

Overall, it was a wonderful trip full of laughs, good food, and great conversations. Should you want to check out our day in Frankenmuth, click here.
