Curry powder, a blend of spices such as turmeric, coriander, and fenugreek seeds, is lauded for its curative properties; many Ayurvedic practitioners believe that it aids in digestion and detoxifies the body. At Shagor Indian Cuisine, chefs use the traditional spice blend to flavor a menu of recipes from across the Indian subcontinent. Options range from East Indian bhuna, an entree chock-full of garlic, ginger, veggies, and meat to tandoori chicken tenderized with yogurt and lemon juice. Diners may supply their own adult libations at this BYOB eatery or sip glasses of mango lassi, a yogurt-based beverage.

Inside the eatery, white tablecloths drape over tables, and yellow walls stand out brightly from white walls and a black ceiling like a bumblebee’s contrasting stripes—if the bumblebee just rolled in red paint, Shagor’s fourth major hue. Green plants and framed artwork fleck the flanks of the dining hall, where white pillars furnish both structural and aesthetic goodness.

Zaxby's menu of chicken-centric comfort fare demolishes cravings with its roster of eight hefty Meal Dealz. The Kickin' chicken sandwich kindles chicken tenders with Zaxby's popular Tongue Torch wing sauce, muffling the ensuing crackles between two slices of texas toast that are thicker than War and Peace after a Thanksgiving dinner. More flame-sensitive taste buds can indulge in the chicken-fingers-sandwich meal, which serves up chicken fingers with milder Zax Sauce on a toasted bun. Flanked by a side of celery sticks and ranch, boneless and buffalo wings set appetites aflutter with one of nine intoxicating sauces, including teriyaki and hickory barbecue. Cooks slice up all-white-meat poultry for the chicken-salad sandwich, layering it with lettuce and tomato inside a cushiony casing of honey-wheat bread. Golden crinkle fries and a 22-ounce fountain drink accompany each meal, calming the nerves of chickens preparing to make their table debut.
