5-on-5 is our highly-subjective series of lists released on the 5th day of every month. Our goal is to have fun sharing some of our favorites in various categories. From fish to French fries, pizza to pasties, follow our foodie lists for monthly recommendations across Michigan.

The number of restaurants in and around Ann Arbor is staggering. Here are five spots we recommend checking out.


Vinology Ann Arbor

The King Crab Salsa at Vinology is bright and refreshing, while fried-to-order tortilla chips provide the perfect crunch.

Sava’s makes the short list for best breakfast spots in Ann Arbor. Savor their elevated breakfast sandwich built with chorizo, bacon, smoked gouda cheese, and more.

Frita Batidos

Frita Batidos Ann Arbor Michigan

It is no secret that Frita Batidos is an Ann Arbor gem. The Inspired Cuban sandwich and The Best Side Ever (coconut-ginger rice, black beans, muenster cheese, and cilantro lime salsa) are standouts. Sip a Mojito while you wait for your food to arrive!
