If you're having a bad day, don't even think about curling up with that pint of ice cream. Ann Arbor is one of the best college towns in America for food, so there's no excuse to stay home in bed. We've all had our bad days, so if that's the case for you today, here's a list of the top ten places to eat your feelings in Ann Arbor.
Ahhh feta bread — because you've got to feel worse before you start to feel better, am I right? You might hate yourself for it, but it's definitely needed. No other pizza place has mastered the crust to cheese ratio quite like Pizza House. If you're looking for something different, Pizza House also has a great selection of late night specials. So, when your friends get sick of consoling you, don't worry — Pizza House delivers until 4 am.
This restaurant's massive plates of fast casual food are undoubtedly satisfying. Whether it's that failed econ midterm or a game day hangover, any University of Michigan student will tell you that No Thai! can fix anything.
Treat yourself and go for the sushi (because a lil' splurge never hurt nobody). Sushi is my go-to bad day food because I always feel better after devouring one (or two, or three) rolls. I know you might be skeptical because Michigan is nowhere near the ocean, but I promise that Slurping Turtle's sushi will amaze you. You'll be (spicy tuna deluxe) rollin' with the punches in no time.
After all of the carbs you've eaten today, you must top it off with even more carbs. Who doesn't love Insomnia Cookies? These cookies will melt in your mouth and warm your heart. Order a dozen, and lure your friends back to your place with cookies. Now, they can help you wallow in self-pity. Plus, if they don't come, you have an excuse to eat the whole dozen by yourself.
Whenever those feels hit, head to Amer's. Amer's is so much more than a deli and serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. For the days when you're really down, Amer's is also great for eating alone. Famous for their insta-worthy açaí bowls, crepes, fro-yo, and, of course, sandwiches, you really can't go wrong at this Ann Arbor staple.
If nothing else makes you feel better, the best sandwich in Michigan will. Zingerman's fresh ingredients will fuel that crying session I know you're going to have later. Everyone raves about Zingerman's (and with good reason). Plus, if your day is so awful that you really can't get out of bed, they deliver.
Honestly there is no better way to eat and drink your feelings than with nachos and margaritas. That's why Isalita's happy hour is happiness. Carbs and cheese are always a winning combination, but these nachos take it to the next level by adding jalapeños and skirt steak. At Isalita, whatever's been getting you down is nacho problem anymore (sorry about it).
If you're still thinking about that pint of ice cream, you should go to Blank State Creamery. Blank State features fresh ingredients, crazy unique flavors, and warm waffle cones. Bye, processed pint.
A great bite to eat undoubtedly makes a bad day instantly better, so you won't regret getting out of bed and treating yo self at any of these Ann Arbor eateries. Lucky for you, sad Wolverine, there is no shortage of options.
