Giraffas Steaks and Burgers channels 30 years of history in Brazil to tackle American appetites and remix American classics. A diverse menu harbors a lineup of American favorites forged with an exotic twist and imbued with a sense of justice, such as a 5-ounce burger outfitted with gouda cheese and giramayo sauce ($7.90). Three choice sides, including black beans, quinoa, and haricots, offset meaty mouthfuls of picanha ($11.90), and the tri-tip steak of sliced maminha ($8.90) sidles up to teeth alongside Brazilian farofa—hunks of eggs, bacon, and onion atop peaks of toasted manioc flour. Dive fork-first into the leafy canopy of a salmon and greens salad ($14.90), which plays host to bruschetta and a balsamic dressing, or fuel future adults with a nutrition-packed option from the kids' section, including spaghetti and meatballs ($4.90).
Enchanting Creations specializes in edible art created under the direction of owner and head designer Karen Matamoros. Karen and her husband, Alex, decided to open the bakery shop in their backyard after living in the community for more than two decades. In their free time, they pour themselves into art-⎯expressing themselves by painting murals, designing fashion, and building custom furniture⎯and the bakery has become an additional extension of their creative sides.
In running the bakery, they take their artistic aspirations to new heights with 3-D cakes: edible sculptures that represent a variety of cartoon characters and inanimate objects, such as a ribbon-wrapped present, Spider-Man, or a giant bowling ball. Their smaller treats—including cake pops, pastries, and cupcakes—combine rich cocoa, fresh fruits, fluffy cake, and sugary sweet icing into bite-size portions and delicate desserts. Testifying to Enchanting Creations' dedication to the environment, all orders ship out in eco-friendly boxes, unlike most bakery goods, which are packaged in wasteful styrofoam boxes, surrounded by styrofoam peanuts, and topped with styrofoam sprinkles.
