Sweet basil, chili sauces, and ginger cast their scents throughout the dining room at Thai Palms, providing an olfactory glimpse of the intricately spiced menu. The curries range from mild yellow broth to spicy green varieties. Bamboo-skewered morsels of chicken, beef, and prawns line the grill tops, and rolls of fried rice paper surround cores of herb-accessorized proteins.
Slice into the menu with a cool, cold sandwich ($3.39–$13.79) such as the veggie sub, with your choice of three cheeses and avocado, the salami-turkey-provolone, or the ham-salami-capicolla-pepperoni-provolone. Load a gastronomic cargo carrier with a medium fountain drink ($1.39) or chips ($1), or turn on the mouth heat with a stomach-warming griller, such as the 12-inch New York steak ’n’ cheese on ciabatta ($4.99–$7.99) or the 8-inch barbecue pork ($4.99–$7.99). Any sandwich can also be made into a wrap ($4.99–$6.29).
If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice?s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn?t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it?s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there?s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there?s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice?all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit?which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
Grilled cheese has become so much more than the American cheese and white bread many grew up eating. Grilled Chz celebrates this with its menu of six types of bread, six cheeses, seven flavored butters, and 30 add-ins, including grilled apples, walnuts, and sun-dried tomatoes. Cheese lovers can let their imagination run wild with a marble rye sandwich smeared with tomato pesto butter and stuffed with swiss, honey ham, and caramelized onions or grab a specialty sandwich with tried-and-true fillings.
The eatery's chefs take their love of grilled cheese even further with dessert sandwiches, which might top sweet challah bread with fresh strawberries and cream cheese. For kids, who aren't quite ready to eat gourmet grilled cheese, the chefs can whip up the classic American-and-white-bread grilled cheese?and even cut off the crust.
Paradise Catering, located in Fresno Breakfast House, has standard restaurant decor: pastel-colored walls, murals, and white-clothed tables. But it also has elephants. The tusked duo—fake, of course—surrounds an extra-special banquet table that is set beneath a thick of hanging vines and flowers. At another table underneath a straw-covered cabana, a stuffed leopard lounges on a wooden bench beside a tablecloth-covered table.
Amid the eclectic decor, guests sup on breakfast, lunch, and dinner favorites such as french toast, made-to-order omelets, hearty lasagna, and chicken cordon blue. Guests aren’t restricted to onsite dining, either. The staff delivers its dishes to residences and party locations, though it’s hard to imagine going a whole meal without telling the animals you’re also stuffed.
India's Oven chefs knows their aesthetic well—they specialize in North Indian cuisine inspired by the state of Punjab, and forge a menu's worth of thick, flavorful curries, vegan options, and dairy products such as milk, yogurt, and cottage cheese. Punjab is also home to the tandoor style, and India's Oven pays homage to this with its crispy roti and oven-baked naan, ideal for sopping up morsels of lamb or seafood or for wearing to work. This distinctive cuisine is showcased in the restaurant's lunch buffet and in its lavish banquet hall, filled with crisp white drapes that tie close to chairs, sheer ribbons, and satin tablecloths. A selection of beer imported from India and traditional Indian cocktails complement the spicy food.
