LA MICHOACANA #5 MEXICAN MARKET
www.michoacanamarket.com | 748 Troy St., Dayton | (937) 220-9600
Why it rates: Where else can you grab some delicious chorizo tortas, then buy the very same chorizo at the meat counter next door? La Michoacana is a true gem in the Gem City, a spot you're surprised to find in the Midwest but are so happy you did. Any of their fajita skillets are worth an order, but the shrimp fajitas in particular are a real treat.
