Unfortunately, I’ve never been able to find anything in Kalamazoo I would bother to write home about. The couple of decent places they used to have closed (run out of business by chains…the college kids pretty much rule the roost there, and no one wins).
However, there are a couple. Best donuts I’ve found around here are at Sweetwater’s on Stadium Drive. Bilbo’s Pizza on West Michigan is pretty darn tasty. Gallaghers Eatery on Stadium isn’t bad. You can get decent (if pretty standard) Chinese food at Hunan Gardens on West Main. If you want a stupid amount of variety in a very cheap buffet, King Wok on West Main is the best bet (it’s Chinese…wait, no…it’s Mongolian BBQ…wait, no…it’s sushi!).
Mostly I just eat at chains when I’m there. [:(]
