Dank Dishes on a Budget

I’m hungry and I want to be fed, but my diminishing bank account has other plans for my stomach that involve free samples at the grocery store or my roommate’s expired noodles in the pantry. Does this sad story resonate with you? If so, listen up; I’ve compiled a list of local eats available on EatStreet in Madison, Ann Arbor and Denver that are just as tasty as they are economical. Dig in.
