Rice & Roll serves traditional Japanese sushi rolls, teriyaki dishes, and fried-rice entrees. Diners looking for a traditional experience can pair a lobster roll with a dragon roll, cutting the spicy tuna and eel with the more subtle flavors of lobster and crab. Those looking for something a little different may opt for specialty rolls like the King of the Castle with shrimp tempura, cream cheese, and spicy crab, or the Spicy Yum Yum with deep-fried shredded crab and chili sauce. Chicken, shrimp, beef, and salmon bento boxes offer miniature meals, complete with teriyaki meats, shrimp and vegetable tempura, california rolls, and spring rolls.
Sausage rolls, savory meat pies, and lamingtons—chocolate-dipped and coconut-dusted sponge cake—are a few of the treats available at Walkabout Coffee Shop, a café dedicated to authentic Australian snacks and culture. The spot's friendly baristas also brew single-origin coffees, blend smoothies, and concoct specialty lattes and mochas. Aboriginal-influenced decor lends the coffeehouse a funky, relaxed ambiance, and musicians fill the space with their melodies during open-mic nights.
Double E's founders, brothers Kevin and Shannon, wanted to build more than a restaurant—they wanted to create a community hub where families could dine together or pop in for a quick treat. Given this vision, its no surprise to see the wives of the brothers scooping out ice-cream sundaes or sister Carol in the back cooking up famous cherry and chocolate fried pies created by her father, Papa Joe.Their hearty menu includes classic offerings such as meaty burgers, pulled-pork sandwiches, and chicken philly cheesesteaks. The cooks also get creative and heap inventive toppings such as crunchy Fritos and bacon onto deep-fried hot dogs. And those who wander in on Friday nights can treat themselves to what is perhaps Double E's most famous offering—heaps of golden-fried, American farm-raised catfish.
But beyond the plethora of tasty meal options, Double E's menu also comes with a challenge: if a guest finishes their 1.5-pound burger—topped with all the fixings—and 1.5 pounds of fries in less than 30 minutes, it's on the house. And for those who still have room after their all-American meal, staffers at the ice-cream bar concoct tempting banana splits and other frozen treats topped with whipped cream, cherries, or shrunken snowman heads.
Martin Hernandez grew up with 14 siblings in the city of San Miguel de Allende in central Mexico. That's where their community taught them the importance of family and hard work, but no one more so than their mother. She created flavorful, fresh meals for the family, never cutting any corners. As the owner of Primas Mexican Grill, Martin has the chance to recreate not only the homemade meals, but also the festive family atmosphere at his restaurant.
Along with a talented staff, Martin pays homage to his mother with traditional Mexican house specialties: pico de gallo, smothered carnitas, fish tacos, and fajitas, to name a few. But the menu doesn't adhere strictly to south-of-the-border fare. There are also American favorites such as burgers and steak served with fries.
Red Rock Family Dining treats guests to cozy cups of espresso and RedBush tea, gourmet burgers and pizzas, and warm, friendly service. Diners feast on flatbreads topped with turkey and chicken, burgers topped with mushrooms and cheese, or dinners of slow-cooked shepherd's pie, cod, and chili with homemade biscuits.
Li'l Rizzo's Italian Restaurant unites two popular experiences: eating delicious Italian food and rooting for your favorite team. It's no surprise, then, that the restaurant-slash-sports-bar tends to get crowded on game night. Aside from Italian staples such as lasagna and tortellini alfredo, Li'l Rizzo's specializes in creative pizzas topped with creamy spinach dip and chicken. The award-winning wings aren't to be missed, nor are the beers from local breweries such as Schlafly and Boulevard.
