For all you Michigan foodies out there, listen up. While Sava’s Greek salad, Fred’s avocado toast, and Isalita’s truffle guacamole will always be crowd favorites, we definitely don’t give enough credit to some hidden gems on these menus.

During first semester, I mastered American politics, statistics, health and nutrition, and English. More importantly, however, I mastered the Ann Arbor food tour. Here are a few items from your favorite restaurants that you should no longer look past.

1. Skillet from Ama Bistro

While Ama Bistro makes a mean omelette, there is absolutely nothing better than their “create your own skillet.” This is a heavenly ceramic skillet filled with hash browns, veggies, cheese, meat, and eggs. I know, insane, right? Trust me, it tastes even better than it sounds!

2. Brown Rice Bowl from Fred’s

If you’re even looking for a feel-good healthy meal, Fred’s is your place. Their menu consists of healthy versions of almost anything you could be craving. After trying the menu almost to its entirety, their brown rice bowl is definitely a go-to choice.

3. Cauliflower Tacos from Isalita

This is definitely not what comes to mind when envisioning tacos, but I promise they do not disappoint.

4. Santa Fe Salad from Sava’s

Some may argue with me on this, but Sava’s Santa Fe salad totally beats their famous Greek salad! Sava’s is a go-to for a majority of UM students, and you truly can’t go wrong with anything on their menu.

5. BT Nachos from Blue Tractor BBQ

Besides their authentic BBQ items being off the charts, they also have one of the best nachos I’ve ever had! The best part- the deep fried jalapeños on top!

6. Stone Pot Bibimbap from Kangs

This is most definitely proof not to look past a tiny restaurant on South U! A sizzling pot filled with rice, vegetables, Korean beef, and a fried egg. What more could you ask for?

7. Wood Roasted Wings from Bigalora


Coming from a buffalo wing enthusiast, not all wings need to be drenched in hot sauce! These are the most delicious wings, simply roasted with spices and caramelized onions.

8. Spicy Miso Tonkotsu from Slurping Turtle


Slurping Turtle somehow is the cure to any illness. After a bowl of ramen, you are guaranteed to feel better. The “Spicy Miso Tonkotsu” has the perfect level of spice bound to clear up your sinuses!

9. Chipati from Pizza Bob’s

A warm, soft pita stuffed with chopped salad and chicken, with the most heavenly secret sauce. Fun fact- chapatis are an Ann Arbor one of a kind special, which is why you should take advantage of their deliciousness.

10. Churros from Aventura

Once you’ve tried all of the meals above, I’m sure your sweet tooth will kick in. The churros from Aventura are truly one of a kind. I guarantee you won’t even feel guilty after consuming the whole order because they’re THAT good!

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs

Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
