Detroit VegRock City

"I spent almost 3 weeks in Detroit this month. I had intended to do a Battle of the Detroit Veggie Burgers piece but alas most of the places I wanted to try weren't able to happen. The winner as it stands would be Traffic Jam & Snug in the Cass Corridor section of Detroit. The spicy lentil veggie burger is just amazing. I can't get enough of this sandwich, I have it almost every time I visit Michigan."
