Catapulting slow-cooked meat into the jaws of backyard partygoers and sauce-spotted diners, Real BarBQ boasts five house sauces along with reliably smoky general and catering menus. Classic eats such as a pulled-pork sandwich ($5.99) or a whole smoked barbecue chicken ($8.99) those who opt to dine in at either location. Partying carnivores can put in a catering request for a combo such as the Real’s smoking combo ($10.99 / person), which includes a choice of two meats and a cornucopia of sides, or Real’s cowboy dinner ($12.99 / person), featuring brisket, ribs, and peppery smoked sausage. On the takeout menu, ribs come in 50- ($72.99) or 100-piece ($140.99) orders, each with enough extra barbecue sauce to grease up the Slip-'n'-Slide for an afternoon’s worth of open-mouthed dives.
Since 1996, City Coffeehouse has drawn in guests with the scents of freshly brewed arabica coffee, simmering specialty drinks, and ambrosial baked gourmet desserts. Organic and fair-trade beans percolate into cups of specialty Almond Joy lattes and seasonal Mudslide cappuccinos with irish cream after thorough grounding, and 13 types of hot chocolate warm esophagi. The café strives to emulate the communal atmosphere of the traditional coffeehouse, hosting local chess and book-club meetings—as well as confused Edinburgh intellectuals imported straight from the 18th century—amid the vibrant red walls and framed artwork that surround clusters of tables and cushy couches. A 5:30 a.m. opening time accommodates early risers, and free WiFi encourages Internet exploration. Special events and regular open-mic nights give visitors the chance to perform yodel covers of Prince hits before a respectful audience.
“I cannot describe how great your food is,” wrote one regular of Shish Tawook Mediterranean Grill on the eatery's Facebook wall in November 2012. “Best pita bread I've ever had,” raved another. Dishes such as lamb shawarma, shrimp stir-fry with garlic-almond rice, and lentils with cracked wheat, sautéed onions, and creamy yogurt keep diners coming back for more. Patrons can also sip beer, wine, or freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices, or puff flavorful tobacco from a hookah.
Before teaming up in 1953, Burt Baskin and Irv Robbins were seasoned business owners with their own ice-cream shops. The words “unusual varieties” shone high above each shop, signaling their respective owners’ passion for anything but an ordinary dessert experience. When the two got together, it was natural that they’d adopt the theme of “31 flavors,” one for each day of the month. Since then, Baskin-Robbins has introduced more than 1,000 flavors and opened shops with more than 5,800 franchise owners worldwide. Even their little pink tasting spoon has become a staple as a way to make flavor browsing an event by allowing guests to try specialties without paying cash or chicken-based trade for the privilege.
The Garmo family first opened the doors to Shoppers Valley Market in 1979, and its been stocking the store's grocery-packed aisles and bursting display cases by hand ever since. Vine-fresh produce spills out of bins and vies for the attention of customers browsing thick slabs of marbled meats at the deli station. Canned goods, household items, and spare shopping-cart wheels line the towering food corridors, delighting eyes with the sight of brand names that range from Dole to Duraflame, Mott's, and Ziploc. Just outside of the store, off-street parking allows visitors to leave their vehicles unattended without using their last genie wish to secure a space.
