Cyclones Tex Mex Cantina entwines Mexican cuisine with flavors of the Lone Star state with a menu of traditional burritos, fajitas, and tacos, spiced up with spreads of charbroiled chicken and bacon-wrapped jumbo shrimp. Food ferriers walk through brick archways balancing platters of handmade chicken or pork tamales ($9), presenting them to diners lounging in comfy green booths. The Camarones Mazatlan sees six jumbo shrimp marinated in garlic and butter, then skewered on a lance by a miniature knight and brought to the table with tomato slices and avocado ($13). The Tacos Gringos enfold a vegetarian mix of beans, cheese, tomatoes, and guac ($8), while a sweet duet of flan ($4) and Texas Oil mud pie ($5) fill out the menu’s desserts section. Barflies can perch or headstand on stools at a corrugated-tin counter and lick the salt from Cyclones Tex Mex Cantina’s specialty margaritas.
Happy Cup's owners opened the business because they wanted to serve customers a frozen treat that was not only tasty, but also healthy. So they created a self-serve frozen-yogurt shop whose staffers crafted frozen yogurt from scratch daily using organic milk, yogurt, and sugar, as well as all-natural flavors. The proprietors quickly realized that people craved tasty, healthy food all the time?not just as a treat?and Happy Cup now fills that need.
Mornings there start off with a cup of organic coffee and organic steel-cut-oat oatmeal, a Greek yogurt bowl, or an anti-oxidant-filled a?a? bowl. Greek yogurt bowls are available in flavors such as peanut butter + jelly, pistachio + dark chocolate, as well as cucumber + olive oil + pita chips. A?a? varieties are offered in flavors such as Amazing Almond and the SoCal, a made-from-scratch a?a? sorbet with peanut butter, bananas, and almond milk topped with banana, hemp granola, cacao nibs, and honey. Lunchtime tempts taste buds with vegetarian wraps made with organic ingredients, as well as freshly baked goods. Happy Cup also satisfies with fresh fruit smoothies, which can be filled with protein-heavy Greek yogurt.
