Best Budget Lunch

Five on Black

Ever since Five on Black opened last year, any hungry Missoulian with $5 in his or her pocket can afford a small bowl of a delicious Brazilian stew called feijoada, brown rice, steamed collared greens, spicy coconut sauce and chimichurri. It seems like it should defy some law of economics to get so much for so little, but apparently it doesn’t. Five on Black’s sleek and open space is often packed, especially around lunchtime. And the tables outside on the Higgins Avenue sidewalk are a coveted spot when the weather’s nice. After being selected Best New Restaurant a year ago, this affordable eatery already seems like an institution. Five on Black: 325 N. Higgins, 926-1860,
