Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina REVIEW – Restaurant In Clinton Township, MI by Give It A Whirl Girl

Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina REVIEW & A Cinco de Mayo Feast At This Mexican Restaurant In Clinton Township, MI

My husband and I were looking for a place to go for our date-night and since it was the day before Cinco de Mayo we were craving a big plate of Mexican food. We have driven past the Crazy Gringo restaurant many times before but never stopped in. The Crazy Gringo Mexican Cantina is located in the 15 Mile Road and Gratiot area in Clinton Township so it was not far from where we live in St. Clair Shores. Mexicantown in Detroit is usually our go-to place for that authentic taste and experience but my hubby did not feel like driving down to the city last night. So that is how we ended up here. Also, I almost always Google a restaurant before my first time going and I was impressed with the big plates of colorful food. This was the perfect Mexican restaurant to celebrate the Cinco de Mayo holiday!

Paleo French Toast With Vanilla Custard & Raspberry Compote And Duck Bacon, And Some Other Things

Yesterday was a bittersweet day for me and my husband. My mom came over in the morning to pick Chloe up to go up--north (Oscoda, MI) to stay for two whole weeks. MY daughter is in love with all of her grandparents and values her time spent with all of them. Since my mom was coming over in the morning I decided to invite her over for some sweet and savory brunch. We had paleo French Toast with custard and raspberries.  I believe she left with a full, happy tummy and a warm heart.
