I just love Cuban food, and Frita Batidos is one of the best! Their slogan, Cuban inspired street food, says it all. You’ll find an inspired Cuban sandwich, made with savory roast pork loin, thick-cut bacon, tasso ham, Comté, cornichons & chipotle mayo on Cuban bread. Sides include choices of Crisped Plantains, Shoestring Potatoes, Coconut Rice, or Light Bright Salad. Then of course, there are the Batidos, or tropical milkshakes. Made with crushed ice, fresh fruit, and Guernsey Dairy vanilla bean ice cream. There are several flavors available such as Fresh Lime, Hibiscus, and Passion Fruit. There’s more on the menu, so check it out for yourself. They are open Sunday – Wednesday 11am – 11pm and Thursday – Saturday 11am – Midnight. Located at 117 W. Washington, Ann Arbor, MI 48104.

The Fleetwood Diner is open 24 hours a day, and they serve breakfast food all day long. People say you go to Fleetwood Diner after the concert or show, but you don’t remember going.
