Michigan just finished the sixth week of the college football season, and one thing has become clear: Michigan football is back. After five back to back home games and one killer away game, Wolverines are busy celebrating their undefeated season. What's the best way to live it up in honor of Jim Harbaugh and the boys? Eating, of course.
In a town that's jam packed with so many restaurants, you may need some help curing your post-game munchies. So, in case you need some guidance, I'm giving you the nine best foods to indulge in while you reminisce on Jourdan Lewis's sick interception.
1. Feta Bread from Pizza House
Pizza House is known for its Chicago-style pizza, but every Wolverine knows that the real star of this Ann Arbor staple is the feta bread. Feta bread takes Pizza House's homemade bread and tops it with warm feta, mozzarella, muenster, cheddar, and parmesan cheeses, taking whatever idea you have of a delicious appetizer to the next level (perfect for celebrating a football team that's next level).
2. Shredded Chicken Burrito from BTB Burrito
There's never a bad time for Mexican food, but the perfect time is after Michigan scores another touchdown. This burrito is a combination of ingredients as winning our football team, wrapping refried beans, rice, salsa, cheese, and shredded chicken in a warm tortilla.
3. S'Mac from GrillCheezerie
This option is the perfect way to solve the constant inner debate of grilled cheese vs. mac n' cheese because the sandwich combines both. Cheddar mac n' cheese rests between two perfectly toasted pieces of white bread, and after a bite of this, you'll be convinced that life doesn't get much better — a perfect way to celebrate that same feeling you get when Michigan wins.
4. Georgia Reuben from Amer's Deli
A good deli is a rare thing in most towns, but Ann Arbor has a lot to offer. This reuben has smoked turkey, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing, and coleslaw that serves as the cherry on top, a classic sandwich that's sure to make your undefeated smile even wider.
5. Custom Pie from Pieology
Pieology is, essentially, the Chipotle of pizza and allows customers to customize their pies. The unlimited toppings bar features savory choices such as grape tomatoes, banana peppers, and mushrooms. Michigan fans have become used to getting their way on the field, so why shouldn't that continue at dinner time?
6. Ice Cream from Stucchi's Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt
While the rest of the world may embrace Baskin Robbins as the king of ice cream, Ann Arbor's residents know that there's nothing better than a scoop from Stucchi's. The bold list of flavors includes favorites such as Batters Up Birthday Cake, Mackinac Island Fudge, and White Russian Fudge. However, no one will judge you if you stick with plain vanilla. Michigan's win was probably enough excitement for one day.
7. Ray's Red Hot Hot Dog from Ray's Red Hots
When you think of a hot dog, you might think of a boring BBQ snack, but Ray's Red Hot manages to completely reinvent that perception. To really take this dog to the next level, get it coney style. Your hot dog will be topped with chili, yellow mustard, and raw onions, and just like you never take a Michigan win for granted, you'll never take a hot dog for granted again.
8. Caramel Vanilla Latte from Espresso Royale
Let's face it, winning is tiring. For a post-game energy boost, grab a latte from Espresso Royale. The Caramel Vanilla Latte is a warm, sweet reward for making it all the way until the end of the game (or until halftime — no judgement).
9. Charley's BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger from Good Time Charley's
What's more American than football and a cheeseburger? A cheeseburger with a crispy onion ring on top. As if that wasn't enough, this burger is also topped with bacon, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, and BBQ sauce. The crunch of your first bite will feel almost as good as that 78-0 win against Rutgers.
With the homecoming game quickly approaching, the last thing you need to be worrying about is what to eat and where to go to get it. Get ready to impress your friends with any of these genius post-game plans, and get ready for your tastebuds to win right alongside the Wolverines.
