Reporter Food: Matt and Mo’s at Doug’s Delight in Hazel Park
(Crystal A. Proxmire, Sept. 23, 2021)
Hazel Park, MI – It’s only been a year since I last wrote about Matt and Mo’s Italian Beef at Doug’s Delight in Hazel Park, but when I had this Caprese Sandwich, I knew that I had to tell the world. Made with buttery garlic bread and filled with generous slices of tomato and mozzarella cheese topped with a fantastic basil pesto sauce, the Caprese is an amazing choice at this neighborhood walk up ice cream spot.
Matt and Mo’s operates out of Doug’s Delight, adding a menu of savoy items to complement the business built on soft serve dougies and banana splits, plus Guernsey Farms Ice Cream flavors served by the scoop. When I went last year I went all out with a variety of items to photograph and try, including the Italian Sausage sandwich, Italian Beef Sandwich, Toasted Ravioli, and a banana split.
For this visit I also snagged a coney topped with chili, onions, and mustard, some crispy french fries, and a chocolate shake, enjoying these items on the spot and saving the Caprese for later. Though it was so amazing that it will probably be my first choice from now on.
Doug’s Delight is located at 24110 John R Rd. Check out their full menu at https://www.mmitalianbeef.com/.
