The great irony of being broke is that, generally, it puts you in the know of the finer things in life. Sure, others may have deep-flowing pockets lined with their parents’ money, but what those pockets are devoid of is desperation. This desperation, most often manifesting itself in the form a sub-$5 account balance, has led me to many great discoveries. My most recent desperation-driven discovery has been Sadako. Located on the final stretch of South University before Frat Country, Sadako is not only easy to find and travel to, but their fantastic prices are particularly noteworthy. Yes, I paid only four dollars and 64 cents for two sushi rolls. At other locations, the same order could cost someone upwards of $14. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I, a simple college student, had discovered the Holy Grail of dining: Cheap, yet high-quality sushi that won’t tear up my insides! All jokes aside, Sadako does not rank amongst the Best of Ann Arbor solely for its pricing —  its engaging staff, craveable food and ambiance work in conjunction to give customers a memorable experience.
