Underground Son was recently inspired on a Friday morning when we joined Breakfast at Selma’s in Ann Arbor. Selma’s is a breakfast salon which serves up the community every Friday (us along with 60 plus other people in a private home) to raise awareness and funds for local farmers, food co-ops and urban gardens.
This unique cocktail started at Roast. We liked the drink a lot more than we liked the bartender so we decided to give it a shot at home.
Party for one:
1 oz Absolut Pepper Vodka
3 oz Pear Nectar
1/2 oz Drambuie
Rim one martini glass with fine salt
Combine all ingredients (minus the olives) [...]
Time to open your palette to the summer flavors. Join as we sample our way through a half dozen varietals of white and light reds paired with summer fare. We are currently knee deep testing menus so stay tuned for how the ribs turn out.
We have a special venue this time as we hang [...]
Resort Pool. Cabana boy dedicated just to you. 80 degree weather and everyone at home is buried in fresh snow. It’s good to be me.

The clear favorites were the Rocca Syrah and the [...]
If you are unfamiliar with this beef noodle salad, you need to make it on a nice summer day served outside with a cold beer and some extra chopped Thai chilies for those who like it hot. A traditional Vietnamese salad that is unexpectedly light and bright.

2 Tbsp of soy sauce
1 Tbsp of brown sugar or raw sugar
3 cloves of garlic
1 tsp of sesame oil
1 tsp of black pepper
1/4 cup of chopped scallions

2. Don’t forget to let the protein you are marinating …beef, fish, chicken… come to room temperature before cooking. [...]
I consider this the Modern Margarita. The flavor has been updated from the classic and now we’ve added a little design. This drink began for us at Fiddleheads in Royal Oak and we’ve been playing with it ever since. Last Saturday night, we raised a last toast to Fiddleheads as they closed their doors. [...]
Welcome to the Front of House. I’m here to pick-up the slack when singleGuyChef (sGC) is a little too crazy with work to chat you up. You may be hearing from me a lot in the next few months, but if it means the food he’s been cooking-up actually makes it to the site, then [...]
