The chefs at Arby's stack sandwiches with slow-roasted beef, made in-house every day, and other tasty treats from a multifarious menu stocked with sides, snacks, and desserts. The classic roast-beef sandwich, a time-honoured favourite of thinly sliced roast beef housed inside a sesame-seed bun ($2.99), moonlights as the pièce de résistance in the Sandwich Hall of Fame. Monuments to cheesy excess take form in the beef 'n cheddar combo, which decks a toasted onion roll with Arby's red-ranch sauce, a drool-inducing pile of roast beef, and warm cheddar cheese ($6.99). In addition to reigning over the empire of roast beef, Arby's also holds power in the fiefdom of chicken with poultry-packed sandwiches such as the chicken bacon and swiss, in which a crispy or roasted chicken-breast fillet lounges atop a honey-mustard-smothered toasted bun ($5.39).
Daisy's Pantry whips up wholesome breakfast and lunch fare culled from owner Darla Saunderson's family recipe book. Delightfully devoid of artificial ingredients, a fortifying soup and sandwich combo props up afternoon slumps. Options change daily and are relayed via Daisy's Pantry's Facebook status updates, but past duos have included a creamy mushroom soup and meatloaf sandwich with caramelised onions and homemade chipotle barbecue sauce ($8), and Italian meatballs stacked across freshly baked ciabatta bread, draped with melted mozzarella and served alongside a bowl of potato soup ($8). Diners can also assuage a sweet tooth with post-meal pastries such as cinnamon buns, whoopie pies, and seasonal pies ($3.00). After devouring a to-go lunch combo, dispose of debris guilt-free with 100% biodegradable potato fiber-based takeout dishes and cutlery.
Taco Time's cooks assemble selections from their menu's variety of Mexican offerings, including tacos and burritos. Skilled tortilla artists combine seasoned ground beef, cheddar cheese, veggies, and sour cream on flat flour canvases to create Super Beef burritos as eye-catching as Mona Lisa's diamond grill ($4.09–$6.79). Quesadillas layer beef ($5.69) or chicken ($6.69) between a salsa tortilla, and taste buds mine soft flour or crisp corn tortillas to excavate beef ($1.99), chicken ($3.39) or veggie ($1.99) taco fillings. For dessert, diners weave edible laundry baskets out of the cinnamon crustos' flour tortilla strips coated in cinnamon sugar ($1.49).
At The Fainting Goat, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and North African flavours merge in savoury dishes prepared with fresh, local ingredients. Hearty dinner entrees include the curried lamb stew, for which chefs sear, braise, and read a story to tender pieces of Pine View Farms lamb before floating them in a bath of curry broth ($15). Meanwhile, the spaghetti squashatouille forms a portmanteau of gourds and ratatouille bursting with eggplant, zucchini, and spinach contents ($14). Commemorate dinner's end with a slice of spice-laden chai crème brûlée ($8). For lunch, mandibles can prepare for upcoming betel-nut-chewing jags with sandwiches and wraps such as the chermoula chicken, garbed in feta cheese and fresh vegetables ($14). The spicy muffuletta pizza ($16) invites capicollo, salami, and a hot-pepper-and-olive tapenade to nap atop a fluffy disc of naan bread. While sampling The Fainting Goat's savouries, diners can bask in confines enlivened by live music, local art, and flamenco-dancing sporks.
Burger Baron whips up a menu of fresh fare made to order, featuring its eponymous meaty morsels along with other casual eats such as fish 'n' chips, salads, and frosty desserts. Tongues genuflect in adoration when granted a flavourful audience with a triple King burger ($6.99), whose three layers arrive in mouths cloaked in bacon, cheese, and a tomato. The grilled-chicken burger ($5.19) twitterpates taste buds with its flame-licked poultry patty, and the fish 'n' chips ($7.49) gives landlubbing eaters an excuse to don an eye patch and peg leg without being stared at by coworkers. Diners can also eschew bun-encased comestibles for nibbles of the taco salad ($5.99), which gives forks a chance to strut their stuff as they ferry their zesty cargo from plate to expectant mouth. Mandibles overheated from fervid munching can cool down with soothing sips of a creamy milkshake ($3.29). Protein-packed feasts can be consumed at Burger Baron or collected for takeout to eat on the go or to supply mobile food fights with ammunition.
