With an eclectic childhood that took place amid the bustling cityscape of São Paolo, Brazil, in the steamy kitchen of their parents’ Chinese restaurant and on surfboards riding the oceans of Mexico, brothers Wing, Ed, and Mingo have tasted a panoply of flavors. Their intimate familiarity with the international cuisines of their youth has coalesced into Wahoo’s Fish Taco, a taqueria with Mexican specialties that brim with Brazilian and Asian touches. House-made sauces, such as the roasted-pepper cilantro sauce and the spicy Mr. Lee’s sauce, drizzle wahoo- and mahi-mahi-stuffed tacos and fork-ready entrees such as the Maui bowl, a customer favorite that combines teriyaki steak with beans and rice. The full bar serves margaritas infused with local limes, house-made sweet-and-sour mix, and straws handcrafted by artisan strawsmiths to anoint tongues during lunch, dinner, or the eatery's daily happy hours. To add to the global flavors, live musicians flaunt their fingerwork in the restaurant three days a week.

Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.

The chef's internationally infused take on the Mexican staple has attracted media attention, with favorable reviews from KTV4 and articles on the owners' love of Japanese cuisine. Jemmari ramps up his production with the catering menu, eschewing tortillas altogether in favor of expansive, multi-course Moroccan dinners.
