Though Moon Flight Car Wash and Coffee might seem like an unusual assemblage of businesses, its mission is clear: to offer clients fast, efficient services that don’t require them to leave their vehicles. Customers can cruise through an automated car wash, pick out their favorite drinks and treats from a drive-thru café menu, and finally have that car-horn honk-off they’ve always been meaning to do. For night owls, Moon Flight's self-serve washes are open 24 hours a day, and the coffee shop serves Kiva Han Coffee and Enrico Biscotti starting in the early hours of the morning.
Pets also can receive a cleaning in one of Moon Flight’s self-service dog-wash rooms, which are stocked with two shampoo formulas, skunk-odor remover, conditioner, and a blow dryer. Left smelling fresher than a rose auditioning for the lead role in a bouquet, well-behaved dogs can trot over to the drive-thru window to receive a free treat.
The skilled aestheticians at Aniko's Hungarian Skin Care and Spa tend to the skin, hair, and soul with a variety of beautifying services. Nourish the face without bathing it in a bowl of goulash with the restorative 30-minute Light Me Up facial, which employs Éminence organic skin products to exfoliate, massage, mask, and moisturize vexed visages (a $50 value). Dried-out pouts can soak in the three-step lip treatment, which refines the kissers with fruit enzymes, hydrates them with an extra-rich mask, and plumps each with a minty collagen balm. A brow wax tidies and shapes over-eye arches, resulting in refined looks of surprise when cast as the face double for an incredulous movie star (a $25 value).
Gullifty's chefs sculpt a melting pot menu that bursts with barbecue, seafood, chicken, and pizza, followed up with succulent helpings of house-made desserts. As guests enter the eatery, desserts tempt them from glass cases, with new york cheesecake ($3.99/slice), deep-dish chocolate-mousse pie ($4.99/slice), and flourless chocolate cake ($4.99) offering sweet bites and time-shares in Candyland. Diners prepare palates for after-dinner dessert with barbecue dishes such as the barbecue broken ribs, slathered in Gullifty's Lip Smackin' barbecue sauce and buttressed by corn bread and sweet-potato fries ($12.99). Sandwiches, from the batter-dipped fish sandwich ($6.99) to the Club Grill's turkey, bacon, and veggies ($7.99), roam the restaurant, sating stomachs and ganging up against lone forks.
The chocolate artisans at Sinful Sweets Chocolate Company make fresh treats each day, using premium cocoa beans, buttermilk, and other high-quality ingredients. Their sweets range from indulgent champagne truffles and bourbon-bacon caramel chocolate squares to peppermint bark and bacon-peanut butter s’mores. The hand-dipped chocolates don’t contain unnatural flavors or preservatives, yielding delightful morsels that are always fresh, characteristically less sweet, and feature unique textures.
The Chocolate Moose brings the senses to life with imported and domestic truffles such as sea salt caramels and white chocolate capuchin. Novelty molded chocolates transform snack time into a game and custom-colored M&M's help you align your sweets with your favorite sports team. While you're inhaling the shop's exotic chocolate fumes, grab a stack of Lindt and Cote d'Or candy bars or fill a bag with more than 250 bulk candies including jelly beans, cordials, and Australian licorice.
The rainbow trim bordering Cool Ice Taipei’s ceiling evokes the diversity of manager Bobo’s steaming Taiwanese dishes and chilly fruit drinks. Skilled baristas mix fresh fruit into snow ices and all-natural smoothies to pair with pork and shrimp stir noodles, and hot pots of cabbage and duck. After polishing off a Taiwanese–style wasabi fried chicken, diners can use a straw to vacuum up a milk tea or a dozen hot flower teas to charm a love interest returning from the desert.
