At Sizzling Wok, chefs wield fiery-hot woks chock-full of stir-fry dishes from a menu of Chinese specialties such as peking pork, chow mein, and kung pao chicken. Combination plates grant the power of choice to hunger-havers, helping them pack plates with their choice of two stir-fry entrees, chow mein, fried rice, and a crispy fried drumstick ($7.99). Sizzling Wok's cooks learn to juggle up to two quarts of tender chicken breasts, aromatic spices, and crisp vegetables, which they toss into piping-hot woks for dishes such as the peanut- and jalapeño-laced kung pao chicken ($5.99/pt.). Pan-fried pot stickers burst with a filling of tasty meat and vegetables ($3.99 for six) and, when paired with fried tempura shrimp ($4.99 for six), demolish international side-dish-specific cravings.
Lorianne Riley’s makeup artistry can be seen throughout California—on the runway, in photos, and on the faces of the stars of Chico’s Wake Up! news show. Additionally—as an educator for Mirabella, California Skincare Supply, Szep Elet, and SkinCare Fundamentals—Riley has trained countless beauty professionals. When she isn’t working as a freelance makeup artist on photo shoots and runway shows, the licensed cosmetologist and certified massage therapist is bestowing the benefits of her experience on clients at eleMENts by Beaute. Trained in LED, ultrasonic, and microcurrent therapies, she draws out skin impurities, enhances facial features, and removes chronic pain and tension.
Riley helms a staff that provides massage work, body treatments, and nail care. During men’s and women’s treatments, staff members use organic products that are never tested on animals or Barbie dolls. Guests can sip on green teas, organic coffee, or fruit-infused water while lounging on Asian- and French-baroque-inspired furniture and humming along to jazz, world beat, and Euro music.
Every member of the staff at Body Resort, from the clinical aesthetician to the bodywork therapist, strives to help clients obtain "beauty from head to soul." In business for over two decades, the spa's serene space allows for this transformation by harboring both traditional beauty treatments and alternative-healing treatments. Clients can also stop in for manicures, haircuts, waxes, makeup applications, body wraps, and intuitive massage therapy.
