Munn, 49, is an avid bowler whose trophies line family room shelves in her neat Livonia ranch-style house. Step into her bedroom and you'll notice cherished family photos that decorate lilac-colored walls. You'll see the two concepts merge in her bedroom, where the iconic kitten graces everything from a wall clock, to CD player, to a table lamp. Notice the fleece blankets neatly stacked on her bed and she'll tell you about the hand-tied blankets she made for every member of her family. The long-time friends have lived together for 22 years, first in an apartment, and for the last two years in Munn's childhood home. They live on their own with support from their families and from the Community Opportunity Center, (COC) a Livonia-based nonprofit organization that helps developmentally disabled persons live as independently as possible. COC provides housing — COC-owned, leased or rented — for its clients. It also offers support staff in its homes and to clients like Munn and Mies who live in family-owned houses or condos. Denise King, COC executive director, credits families, board members and the community for the organization's longevity.
These days, the noodle soup-obsessed have shifted their allegiance to Japanese-style ramen. Once associated with dorm rooms and starving artists, ramen has come into its own in America, inspiring food trucks, pop-ups and bona fide restaurants from coast to coast. The latest opening in Charm City's ramen surge, Ejji Ramen , pairs a friendly wait staff with serious kitchen talent. The menu might be hitched to ramen's rising star, but Ejji's excellent food makes it feel like much more than a flash in the pan. Scene & Decor Ejji is located along the back wall of Belvedere Square's market, between Neopol Savory Smokery and Hex Ferments. The restaurant offers table service at a low bar in front of the open kitchen and a few nearby tables. Appetizer Though ramen is the focus at Ejji, the menu incorporates the casual foods of several Asian cultures. We started with an order of chicken satay ($8). Cooked nicely and with a likeable nutty flavor, the chicken was an auspicious start to the meal. Entrees Ramen seekers have the option of mixing and matching ingredients to create their own bowl or choosing one of the menu's three pre-set options.
