Loui's Pizza & China Café

Restaurant veteran Molly Abraham noshes around town, tracking down some top spots.


Published:

Loui's Pizza: This unpretentious spot, still run by the founding Tourtois family, hasn’t changed much since it opened in 1977. Its rows of tables routinely host parties of a dozen or more dining on robust square pizzas with crisp, bread-like crust that’s faintly charred around the edges. Straw-wrapped Chianti bottles left by previous patrons are part of the quirky décor. You may still have your red wine chilled here. 23141 Dequindre, Hazel Park; 248-547-1711. L & D Wed.-Sun. $12 H
 

China Café: There’s a touch of Thai and more than a touch of Korean among the modern Chinese fare served by the husband-and-wife team of Kelly and Susana Change in their handsome restaurant that belies its modest strip-mall location. Signature dishes include wok-seared flank steak with dried chilies, sole with black-bean sauce, and pan-fried crispy noodles with chicken, shrimp, beef, or a combination. 24299 Novi Rd. at 10 Mile, Novi; 248-449-4888. L & D Tue.-Sun. $15 H
