The minds behind COYO Coffee & Yogurt Lounge combined two opposite, yet complementary, cravings: hot drinks and cold snacks. Using locally roasted beans from Dazbog Coffee, baristas craft traditional, fat-free, and non-dairy lattes, as well as the Red Eye, a cup of joe amped up with three espresso shots and the threat of a big term paper. COYO also stocks a rotating selection of hot teas, which, like drip coffee, can be cooled down into iced versions.
Equally cool are COYO's 12-plus frozen yogurts, often made with local ingredients and free of dairy, gluten, and fat. The rotating flavors range from pink lemonade sorbet to chocolate obsession. Hand-swirled by each patron, yogurt treats can be eaten unadorned or smothered with a choice of 70 toppings, including candies and fresh fruits.
There is an arms race in the world of chicken wings. Any good wing joint will have a sprawling list of sauces, and the more than 40 offerings at Wingin' It are plenty to make the shop a force in that battle. Cooks prepare the sauces, including spicy ranch, honey-garlic, and chipotle-mango, at the shop to get the spices just right and make sure they’ll properly ruin white tuxedos.
Wings aren't their only specialty, though; they also fry fish and chips, stack sandwiches with barbecued beef, and deep-fry Twinkies. Patrons wash away the bite of Hawaiian Lava wing sauce with iced tea or cold beer while watching sports on high-definition televisions or lounging on an outdoor patio.
The choices are nearly endless at It's All Peachy Frozen Yogurt. Staffers switch out 14 dispensers with different flavors frequently, so regulars can try yogurts as varied as cake batter, root-beer float, and strawberry-lemonade sorbet. For those who desire a healthy treat, look no further. Frozen yogurt is loaded with probiotics that may aid in digestion, and they make sure to offer options that are fat-free, sugar-free, and perched just out of reach on a moving treadmill. These flavors can be further enhanced with any combination of 70 toppings, which include fresh fruits, chunks of cheesecake, chocolate candies, and sauces.
Sushi is a complex world of flavors, textures, and colors that may seem intimidating at first. Wasabi Sushi Bar?s spread of more than 90 rolls includes simple california and bluefin rolls for the sushi newbie as well as adventurous items for those delving deeper into the realm of maki.
Yellowfin tuna and cucumber slices fill the simpler rolls, and shrimp tempura and avocado cut the delicate brine flavor of barbecued eel in other offerings. The sushi chefs also liberally sprinkle a housemade tempura crunch topping at the sushi bar, and New York strip steaks crackle beneath spicy teriyaki sauces at the grill.
The faintly acidic herbal bite of lemongrass. The earthy spice of green curry. A wide range of aromas drifts from the kitchen at East Moon Asian Bistro & Sushi, where chefs marinate pork chops and stir-fry rice dishes. Inventive ingredients mingle in sushi rolls, which include a maki with shrimp tempura and strawberries, an exotic combination of softness and crunch as well as sweetness and salt. Another roll brims with a verdant combination of cucumber, avocado, and jalapeño that make it beautiful on the outside and inside alike, much like the firemen in a shampoo commercial.
Bop & Gogi - Korean Kitchen & Grill delights diners with their Korean take on fast food. The cooks pile plates with such specialties as galbi barbecue beef ribs, bulgogi or spicy pork, accompanied with steamed rice. Like a garden that also sprouts beef from the soil, Bibimbop bowls mingle five different kinds of vegetables with meat and a sunny-side-up egg, making the dish suitable for lunch or dinner.
