Yogen Früz has an interesting answer for yogurt shops that simply top their swirls with fruit—they mix whole mangos, bananas, watermelon, and kiwis right in with the yogurt. These colorful, fresh creations boast low or no fat as well as a heaping helping of digestion-friendly probiotics and gluten-free goodness. Each flavor is crafted sans artificial flavorings, colors, gelatins, high-fructose corn syrups, or preservatives–all while maintaining gluten-free, kosher-certified status. Of course, customers of the shop—which has more than 1,300 locations in more than 35 countries—can still opt for a traditionally topped cup of yogurt or a früzion smoothie. The body bettering doesn’t stop there, as certain topping combinations from its signature früzion bar can even support cell membranes and veins, provide antacid and anti-inflammatory relief, or help prevent body aging, especially if bathed in.
Sharks embraces an atmosphere of roadhouse rusticity with exposed-brick-and-wood-paneled walls sporting a surfeit of taxidermy and other colorful décor. Inside, diners can soak in the sounds of cue balls cracking and darts crashing into bull's eyes, while outside in the beer garden, live music sometimes fills the open-aired environment.
The chefs at HuHot Mongolian Grill stand around a giant, round grill, preparing sizzling heaps of stir-fry. Unlike at other restaurants, every serving is different because, instead of the kitchen staff, the customer preps each bowl. The bowls may be brimming with chopped vegetables, seafood, and noodles, or they may be composed entirely of water chestnuts. The spice level of each dish varies based on the eater's preferences; MSG-free sauces range from barbecue to sweet teriyaki to five-alarm Kung Pao Yow! Since HuHot Mongolian Grill is an all-you-can-eat affair, diners get the chance to mix and match different ingredients with each trip to the grill.
Mexican and Mediterranean cuisine don't have too much in common, but at Frankiez, both cuisines get the star treatment. Cooks craft made-from-scratch tortillas for Mexican specialties such as steak burritos, tacos, and quesadillas. For Mediterranean platters, they grill kabobs of fresh meats to pair with chopped salads. Sides of lemon rice or rice pilaf round out Mexican and Mediterranean orders, respectively, and freshly homemade organic yogurt smoothies wash them back.

Toppings for the Chicago-style and thin-crust pies range from the traditional (sausage or mushrooms) to the novel (gyro meat or nacho chips). The chefs at Sam's Pizza also concoct their own marinara sauce, ladling it onto calzones and platefuls of spaghetti.:m]]The chefs at Sam's Pizza spend 60 minutes with each Chicago-style pie.
