From my cousin:
I have a favor to ask. I have a friend from work whose son is at Ann Arbor. The son has a friend from Xiamen, China arriving (I think to also be a student). My friend was asking around for recommendations for an authentic first lunch in the U.S. for this Chinese friend.
So what would you recommend? What would you think of for a first lunch for a foreigner. I'm not sure that there is a quintessential American lunch any more. Any local restaurants (not a chain) that you can think of that would be "quintessential" Ann Arbor?
My initial thoughts:
CHEAP: Krazy Jim's Blimpy Burger
MODERATE: Cheesesteak, Stilton Fries and a beer at Ashley's
