At YourWay Burgers & Wings, ordering your meal is an exercise in free will—the burger order form that greets guests can yield more than 340,000 combinations of patty, bun, and toppings. The range of choices is more appetizing than intimidating, though, and begins with five types of filling: certified Angus beef, chicken, salmon, turkey, or vegetarian. From there, patrons decide on a bun, cheese, and infused toppings, which chefs hand-pack into the meat before grilling it. The result distributes bits of chopped onion or tomato within each bite of patty and imbues the surrounding meat with a rarely experienced depth of flavor.
Even outside of its countless burger formulas, the menu embraces customization. In addition to signature twister tornado fries, manager Victor Nguyen spoke to Pegasus News about YourWay’s other french-fry and seasoning variants, listing off his creations like a father proudly reciting his children’s potato-themed nicknames: “shoe string, Tater Tots, curly, and battered, which are regular fries with a thin coat of batter that makes it crunchy. And five seasonings: salt-pepper-lemon, garlic Parmesan, Cajun, chili, and cheese." Visitors can also order chicken wings slathered in mango-barbecue or spicy-ranch sauce amid a sophisticated and sports-ready ambiance, with several HD televisions and cushioned booths flanking the full bar.
It is summertime in Charleston, South Carolina. A small girl lingers in the kitchen as the other kids tumble outdoors. She is riveted by her grandparents' hands as they measure, chop, stir, and season each family meal. When she gets older, she'll take to cooking family feasts herself, and it isn't until she gets overwhelmed fielding requests for her shrimp salad that she'll realize what began as a childhood passion has evolved into a career.
Thus began the culinary adventures of Enjolik R. Oree-Bailey, who cofounded Low Country Quisine in order to share her gift, drawing on the soul-food traditions of the coastal counties of her native South Carolina and Georgia. Her skills are displayed during her regular guest chef stints on Fox 4's Good Day. She and her crew customize gourmet takeaway meals to clients' tastes and whether or not they have their heads trapped in a colander, and the aromas of handcrafted cupcakes stream through the warm air of the kitchen. When catering events, her Southern sensibilities shine through in the dishes she concocts for get-togethers and weddings, for which her staff will also scout venues, rent equipment, and scour the city for horses that moonlight as DJs.
A coalition of ice arenas endorsed by the Dallas Stars, Dr Pepper StarCenters help nurture athletes of all ages and skill levels with activities on or off the ice. Dr Pepper StarCenters house NHL-regulation ice-hockey rinks that host hockey leagues for players of all ages, eradicating the need to play on dangerous frozen lakes dotted with irritable frozen geese. StarCenters' skate academies instill students with the fundamentals of ice hockey or figure skating, allowing them to progress to hockey leagues and local skating competitions if they choose. To warm up after laps around the Euless ice rink, skaters can check out the onsite baseball stadium, batting cages, soccer fields, and Texas Star Golf Course. All locations are open for birthday parties and special events; see each location's website for details.
The creation of Firehouse Subs was based on our love for cooking and fellowship, and our passion for serving customers.
We grew up in a family-owned retail television business in Jacksonville, Florida, where we learned from an early age that you have to take care of the customer.
Russian Banya of Dallas whisks visitors from deep in the heart of Texas straight to Old-World Europe for traditional banya and sauna sessions and Russian delicacies from Citysearch's Best Deli of 2009. Upon entering the unassuming storefront, which was recently profiled on Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods, visitors receive a robe, towels, slippers, and keys for a locker and safe-deposit box, and staff members direct them toward the facility's showers. Once cleaned?which normally takes two full renditions of "Singing in the Rain"?visitors can choose to lounge in the wet heat of the wooden Russian banya, the dry heat of the wooden Finnish sauna, or the 100% humidity of the tiled steam room.
Though the staff recommends novice sauna sitters cool down naturally after their first session, they offer an invigorating 42-degree plunge pool for more experienced visitors to hop in after steaming. The staff also doles out optional venik massages that use chilled bundles of steamed birch, oak, or eucalyptus leaves to help to open pores and pump up metabolisms.
After draining themselves of sweat, toxins, and the desire to experience life as a steamed carrot, visitors can refuel with natural fruit juices and a menu of made-from-scratch Russian, Ukrainian, Uzbek, Polish, and Armenian food at the BYOB deli. The eatery serves lunch and dinner, hosts events and parties, and stages live music every Saturday.
Jon and Carmen Pei spent years traveling the globe, visiting caf?s from New York to Taiwan in search of the perfect rendition of their treasured childhood treat: bubble tea. After organizing all their recipes, tips, and ideas, the couple opened their own shop, where they whip up their own blend of innovative bubble teas, smoothies, and frozen hot chocolate.
Upon entering their colorful, brightly lit shop, guests are often greeted by Jon and Carmen themselves, who dole out free samples to first-timers, greet return customers by name, and tussle the toupees of visiting congressmen. The duo and their staff of baristas fold premium tea leaves and freshly cooked tapioca boba balls imported from Taiwan into fruity drinks. They also chop up fresh fruit for smoothies every day at the shop. Customers are invited to order from a menu of specialty drinks or choose from a variety of flavors, fruits, and mix-ins to design their own concoction. They can even add from a selection of more than 25 kinds of popping boba balls, which burst in the mouth with every sip. And during chilly winter months, the baristas pour hot bubble tea.
Guests sip on beverages and nibble on snacks?such as crunchy Pocky sticks?out among the tabletops of the lively seating area. Some play video games on wide-screen computers and televisions, whereas others engage in more traditional games such Connect Four or competitions to fit the most straws up their nostrils.
