I'll be in A2 for a food-related gathering, and will have a little bit of time to myself. I'll definitely have 1 breakfast, 1 lunch, and 1 dinner to myself, and will likely have 1 other late lunch, and maybe (a bit maybe) 1 other breakfast. I'm not so interested in upper-end dining options during this trip, but want homely fare, like diner food or the like. I'm not so interested in Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, or Indian since I can get good examples of those cuisines in my city, but if there are some good Middle Eastern places, I'd love to try them. Mexican would be OK, too, though I've read there aren't any good Mexican places in A2.
Some background. . .I've been to A2 once before, but it was maybe 7 years ago. Didn't care for Afternoon Delight, Zingerman's Deli (Roadhouse wasn't open yet, I think), or Red Hook. Loved Dimo's breakfast bagel sandwich..
Here's my list based on researching Chow and elsewhere:
Dimo's (I want another breakfast bagel! And I want to try their apple fritters!)
Ray's Red Hots
Then there are the specialty food items:
Ice cream and Gelato:
Chocolates and other candies:
And the "Are they worth the trip" category:
Benny's Bakery in Saline for Saturday morning pretzels (and maybe some doughnuts)
Lev's Bakery in Tecumseh for doughnuts
Shatilla in Dearborn
Are any of the places on my list "must try" places?
Or are any of them "over-rated, don't bother"?
What about the "are they worth the trip" category? Are any of those really worth the trip? I'll be renting a car, so unlimited miles can take me anywhere within MI, though I don't really have unlimited time.
Are there any other suggestions for doughnuts, especially?
I'll also be hitting the Farmer's Market on Saturday morning, so if there are any special "must eats" at the Market, I'd be happy to hear about them!
