Inside a bustling open kitchen under new management, chefs sprinkle an aromatic blend of ground spices—the masala that gives the restaurant its name—into sizzling woks while stir-frying a variety of Thai-, Chinese-, and Indian-influenced dishes.

While sports fans take in the game and families enjoy the full-size kids playground, char-grilled burgers sizzle in the kitchen at Old West Burgers, which accentuates them with mouthwatering toppings such as guacamole, chili, and bacon. The eatery earned praise from the San Antonio Express-News for its "Chalupacabra Cheeseburger," which layers refried beans, a chalupa, and melted cheddar atop a beef patty. Old West's cooks play around with different patties on the grill, flipping lean bison burgers and topping turkey or chicken burgers with cheese and jalapenos. Patrons can also request Texas toast or a gluten-free bun on their sandwiches or hats.
Just off the main drag of South Congress, the wooden floors of Feathers Boutique house gear for women all over the world. Each of the three rooms holds racks of vintage clothing.

Fun accessories like tarot cards and sunglasses are complimented by warning signs with personality: for example, guests are warned to “please watch your beautiful head.”
Endorsed by financial author Dave Ramsey and highlighted on Oprah Winfrey's Life Lift blog, eMeals charts out a week's worth of dollar- and health-savvy dinner recipes to relieve the burden of kitchen-related stress. Each week, organized grocery lists based on food style, family size, and even grocery store showcase flavorful culinary creations for discerning palates. Plans developed by working parents capitalize on sale items at stores such as Walmart, Publix, and Kroger, and an "any store" list can be used to navigate the aisles of other favored grocers. Family meal plans serve seven meals for three to six people, whereas plans for two are tailored to singles, couples, or a pair of sock puppets on a date atop a chest of drawers.
Special paleo, gluten-free, clean-eating, low-fat, and portion-controlled meal-plan options aid nongeneric eaters in assembling targets for their teeth and fitness regimens.

A duo can fill a Publix cart for $50?$60 a week, including side dishes.
