At Sizzling Wok, chefs wield fiery-hot woks chock-full of stir-fry dishes from a menu of Chinese specialties such as peking pork, chow mein, and kung pao chicken. Combination plates grant the power of choice to hunger-havers, helping them pack plates with their choice of two stir-fry entrees, chow mein, fried rice, and a crispy fried drumstick ($7.99). Sizzling Wok's cooks learn to juggle up to two quarts of tender chicken breasts, aromatic spices, and crisp vegetables, which they toss into piping-hot woks for dishes such as the peanut- and jalapeño-laced kung pao chicken ($5.99/pt.). Pan-fried pot stickers burst with a filling of tasty meat and vegetables ($3.99 for six) and, when paired with fried tempura shrimp ($4.99 for six), demolish international side-dish-specific cravings.

The words “Colfax Pharmacy” are still printed in big, sky-blue letters on Colfax Greek Bistro’s white-brick façade even though the building, which was built in 1880, is no longer a place to pick up a prescription. Rather, visitors shuffle in to enjoy owner Elan Vitkof’s falafel sandwiches, baklava, greek salads, and gyros made with house-roasted lamb and beef. Classic Greek and Mediterranean dishes are complemented by glasses of Greek wine and beer from Russia, Germany, Greece, Italy, and Belgium. The café-style eatery boasts exposed-brick walls, couches, and live music and dance acts, making it a great place to enjoy a meal and daydream about someday teaching a horse how to play fetch.

Pachamama's salad options offer large, appetite-crushing salads, as well, such as the large Da Vinci with spinach, sweet peppers, tomato, carrots, almonds, parmesan, and balsamic vinaigrette ($7.50).

With Schoolhouse Yogurt's six self-serve yogurt stations and 35 topping choices, wannabe confection creators can blend creamy concoctions to their hearts' content. The rotating flavors please picky palates with varieties such as cookies and cream, pomegranate-raspberry sorbet, and classic vanilla. Top a tour de fro-yo at the toppings bar, selecting from sweet and savory dustings, and then allow a staffer to ring up the mighty creation to the generous tune of $0.40 per ounce. Though self-serve yogurt may seem like a self-indulgent, self-serving activity, Schoolhouse Yogurt donates 10 percent of all sweet, sweet proceeds to local schools' classrooms, chalk buckets, and kickball-ball lockers.
