After spending time on Trip Advisor and Yelp looking for a place to eat in Ann Arbor, I settled on Frita Batidos. I was alone on a business trip and couldn't decide if I wanted to sit at a large picnic table with a bunch of college students. Added to that was the fact that I wasn't very hungary after a heavy lunch at Midway on the way to Ann Arbor. I've only had one prior encounter with Cuban food and that was an excellent pulled pork sandwich. While that's on the menu here, I made a last minute decision to go with what their website says is traditional Cuban street food and ordered the chorizo frita with a fried egg. It was shockingly good and made me forget that I was still full from lunch. I also bought a bag of the fried plantains with the avacado spread. I would have called this spread guacamole and it, too, was excellent. It may not, however, be for every taste. It had a lot of cilantro, a fair amount of onion and some tomato chunks. There was also a little kick but I couldn't figure out what type of pepper was in it. There are bottles of chilled tap water on the tables along with plastic cups. You order at the counter, they take your name and, after it's prepared, someone brings it out from the kitchen and yells out your name. There are two tables on the sidewalk and each table easily seats eight. I elected to sit at a counter that faces the sidewalk in front of the restaurant and watched people going by.
