This week, "Art and Soul" is about the culinary arts, focusing on the many food options in our community. 89.1 WEMU's Lisa Barry and Jessica Webster talk to the owner of Antonio's Coney Island in Ypsilanti, where diners might be surprised to find a non-typical, coney island menu focusing more on Central American specialties.
Founded in 2015, Antonio's Coney Island is not your typical Coney Island-style restaurant. Owner Irene Serrano created an establishment designed to serve Central American cuisine. Intially, the menu included primarily Mexican food, but Irene's close friend Norma introduced Honduran dishes later on.
The most popular dish at Antonio's Coney Island is tejadas con pollo, which is fried chicken served with tejadas (pictured above). Irene's personal favorite is the huevos rancheros (seen here). Of course, it wouldn't be a "coney island" if all-day breakfast and hot dogs weren't available. Irene also likes to shake up the menu each week with a special dish, including vegetarian options.
