I recently heard of a food court made out of shipping containers. How crazy does a building made out of shipping containers that are always on the boats we see on the lake sound? I did some research and found out there was a variety of places to eat at inside of this building.

I decided to go with a small place called Bangkok 96 Street food. They had many options, even vegan options too. The service was great because they were kind and really helped me decide what I wanted to eat.

I chose to order the bao buns, which is described as a pillow like soft bun with pork, sauce and cilantro inside. After I ordered, the wait time was about three minutes which was not bad at all.

The display of the food was really simple, but pretty. They serve the food on metal trays with a brown paper cover, almost like a cafeteria and the food comes in a paper bowl. I didn’t think it would be good because I’m really picky about what I eat, but I was surprised when I first tried it. The food was amazing. I would rate it five out of five stars.

The atmosphere at Detroit Shipping co. wasn’t my absolute favorite though. There was a small bar located inside of the building, so it was extremely loud for people to be able to have a conversation.

The design and layout of the place is easy to figure out. There is a downstairs sitting area, upstairs there is a coffee shop and an outside sitting area. There were some activities outside such as basketball hoops and a large sitting area. Christmas lights were strung around outside to add a trendy touch.

Overall I rate my experience four out of five stars. I really enjoyed the food and the options you had to choose from. The thing I didn’t enjoy was the noise level. It really ruined most of the experience because you couldn’t hear anyone talk if you were around people. However, I would still highly recommend going here because it’s a really cool idea.
