Carryout meals free foods from the confines of dining rooms, which allows eaters to go on picnics or start food fights in elevators. Liberate mealtimes with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of carryout Mediterranean fare at Chapoton Woods Market in St. Clair Shores.
The chefs at Chapoton Woods Market handcraft spreads of homemade Mediterranean dishes. Nimble hands chop herbs into verdant helpings of tabbouleh ($5.99/pound) and bundle fresh ingredients into neatly wrapped cabbage rolls ($6.99/pound) or stuffed grape leaves ($6.99/pound). For carnivores or rebellious teenage triceratopses, customers can pick up meat pies ($1.25 for one, $11.99 for a dozen) or kibbeh, meaty croquettes that are fried crispy and golden brown ($1.50 for one, $6.99 for five). An order of hummus ($5.99/pound) teaches party guests that chickpeas not only make good substitutes for paintballs but can also transform into a creamy, tasty dip. The market also offers a selection of traditional Western comfort fare such as deli sandwiches, lasagna, and pizza.
