Anaam’s Palate is tucked in a strip mall in Commerce, MI. Walking in the door you are welcomed with a smile, the food smells heavenly and it’s sparkling clean. We were invited out to meet Anaam Elia, her Co-Owner, Noor Kherkher, Manager, Furat Elia, and Media Manager, Salam Elia.
We samples trays of amazingly good food. There was Hummus, Spicy Hummus, their own unique quinoa salad, Falafel, Chicken Shawarma and much more.
Anaam doesn’t take short cuts when it comes to her food. She boils her own chick peas and makes her hummus healthy, from scratch (No chickpeas from a can) and doesn’t use oils. While many restaurants make a weeks supply at a time, Elia only makes enough to last a day or two. She grinds her own meats as well.
One of her clients requested Soul Food and she happily obliged. We heard a rumor that her Mac n Cheese is to die for and we plan to give it a test soon.
A health scare several years ago had Elia working with a dietician. Many of the recipes she uses at her restaurant are made with the same healthy tools she learned from the dietician. Her food is perfect for Vegans, Vegetarians, and those just looking for a delicious healthy alternative when eating out.
Anaam’s Palate delivers locally (5 miles radius) for smaller orders, or will charge a delivery fee for further away. Orders over $200 get free delivery. They deliver to Detroit, the suburbs, Lansing and will cater almost anywhere.
