Eat at Public House

Imperial has been my favorite restaurant in Ferndale for quite some time now. Their tacos are cheap. filling, tasty, and come out super fast. Whenever I have to grab a quick bite in Ferngully that's where I end up eating. In fact, lately I have been putting off trying other restaurants in the area just so I can get my taco fix. In other words, I hadn’t eaten at Imperial’s sister facility Public House until I was invited out to dinner with my friend Tunde last Saturday. It wasn't my first time in the bar, but it was my first time enjoying a meal there.

To be honest, I was a little frightened by Public House’s menu. I have never wanted to go out drinking and down a plate of deviled eggs, until now. Apparently deviled eggs go great with a meal and are a perfect little appetizer. PH adds all sorts of special ingredients, like buffalo chicken and tarragon, to their little devils. We liked them so much that we actually ordered a second round after eating the first one.

I also ordered the fried green onions with a dipping sauce as an appetizer. I was surprised how much more flavor this item had when compared to a regular onion ring. It was a little sweeter than the traditional version and a whole lot more tasty. These fried onions packed a punch.

For my meal I ordered the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich with pimento cheese. The sliders are cheap, but they're also pretty big for sliders. I love getting a lot for my money. In my opinion, the bun choice can make or break a slider, and PH sliders have great buns, they are not too dry or too chewy. They have the perfect meat to bun ratio.

Finally, we ordered cocktails to enjoy with our meal. After looking through the menu, which included items like boozy milk shakes, we decided to try to the daily special which was a light summery drink with ginger and cucumber. The only problem with this cocktail is that it went down way to easy, so I had to order two.

I regret not trying Public House earlier. The menu might be different from what I'm used to eating, but it's really good, really original, and most importantly, really tasty. Kudos to house chef Brennan Calnin for thinking outside the box and giving my taste buds a ride.

Public house is located at 241 West Nine Mile in Ferndale. It is open from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Monday through Sunday. They also recently started serving Brunch from 11-3 on Sundays. Don't take my word for it, head out and try this place for yourself!
