Learning to bake in her grandmother’s kitchen, Anyatta Nicole started selling out cakes to her sister’s coworkers at a local call center. Buoyed by the response she received, Anyatta joined with her mom to create Sinsational Cakes Bakery. The full service sweet shop creates ornate, colorful cakes for any occasion, with a full gallery of their creations available online. Anyatta and her team shape sugar and dough into guitars, cartoon characters, Polo shirts, or adult-themed sweets.
Roots Coffeehouse serves up coffee, teas, and a broad array of espresso-based drinks and complements its potable pleasures with friendly service and a variety of edible options. The shop's menu draws upon three different types of espresso—a single-origin, a blended, and a decaf—to provide savvy sippers with an extra degree of customization to their order. Organic and fair-trade coffee and teas are also available to help keep consciences light and fluffy. Order up a honey vanilla latte ($3.85 for a medium) for a sweet kiss of bee syrup without the danger and mess of personally milking the bees, then pair your vanilla-fueled brainpower with Roots' free WiFi. Frozen drinks such as raspberry mocha or vanilla bean frappes ($4 for a medium) help the overheated mock the impotent sun. A food menu featuring fresh-baked pastries and muffins, as well as a quartet of sandwiches ($7.00), is also available to help customers practice one-handed hunger-avoidance maneuvers.
Arturo and Tina Vargas have a unique way of celebrating their family's central Mexican roots. They make an annual journey to different locales south of the border, ending each trip with a visit to their hometown of Cuernavaca. But these aren't average vacations. Instead, Arturo and Tina use the opportunity to discover new ingredients or recipes that they can bring back to Cristina's Fine Mexican Restaurant, their flavorful franchise of Texas eateries. Their culinary findings appear throughout the menu of Tex-Mex cooking.
The staff at each of the Vargas' venues wholeheartedly embraces those deep roots, making flour tortillas in-house, hand-rolling enchiladas, and preparing orders of guacamole directly beside diners' tables. But that's not to say the dishes are expected?salmon with pineapple butter and fried chicken breast with white wine-cream sauce demonstrate some of the kitchens' more experimental inclinations. Flavored margaritas and mojitos can add spirited refreshment to meals, as can any of the beers that the restaurants import from Mexico via man with a very strong throwing arm.
Conversations pause and heads turn whenever servers at Japanese Grill carry their signature sushi boat through the dining room. Onboard the handsome wooden vessel, a dazzling spread of specialty rolls, nigiri, and sashimi showcases the sushi chefs’ culinary talents, creativity, and eye for aesthetic spectacle. Their repertoire of rolls ranges from classic crab california rolls to innovative Rock rolls with shrimp tempura, jalapeño, and sweet spicy mayo—each sliced and lined up on its own specially shaped plate.
As the sushi chefs work behind their bar, Japanese grill gurus busy themselves in the kitchen, sizzling up seafood teriyaki, flame bathing hibachi meats, and causing pots of udon noodles to boil with but one seductive glance. Meanwhile, out amid the burgundy booths of the dining room, bartenders dole out cups of hot sake and specialty cocktails beneath the glimmer of hanging blue lanterns and the flicker of flat-screen TVs. Come Tuesday, the restaurant erupts into a music-fueled party powered by karaoke jams.
