Three Dog Bakery unleashed its first tasty treats for man's cuddly companion back in 1989 and now has legs across North America, China, and Japan. The quickly expanding barkery takes pride in providing all-natural, human-grade foods to doggies—foods that will help them live long, healthy lives while keeping them fit and promoting a positive Air Bud-esque self-image. In addition to fresh-baked goods and refrigerated products, Three Dog Bakery treats furry friends to prepackaged, all-natural rawhides, such as the vanilla rawhide braid ($4.25). To reward especially good behavior or console your pup after a nasty catfight, appeal to his or her sweetest incisors with some vanilla Lick 'n Crunch ($5.65), apple-oatmeal Jump 'n Sit Bits ($6.99), Peanut "Woof"ers ($5.85), or cheese Bark 'n Fetch oven-baked biscuits ($4.40).
Zona's culinary artisans serve up classic comfort fare infused with a California twist while pouring out 4-ounce swigs of draft microbrews. Tongues can strap on their fanny packs and begin an expedition across the menu with a small dish starter such as the scintillating shrimp nachos, topping wonton chips in black beans, tropical mango salsa, and manchego cheese. On Monday and Tuesday, taste buds plunge into Zona's dip, stuffed with thinly sliced prime rib and sidled up next to a pool of sage-infused au jus, and every night the yuzu salmon swims ashore with yuzu butter, garlic noodles, and Asian veggies. Eight craft beers rotate seasonally and arrive in three 4-ounce flights, though guests seeking nonbubbling libations can substitute their brews with equally priced goblets of wine, cocktails, or flat seltzer water.
Voted Best of San Clemente People’s Choice Award for three years straight, Velvet Yogurt dishes out healthy yogurt, fresh fixings, and an eco-friendly philosophy. Guests start their journey toward cultured snacking by choosing one of 12 self-serve frozen-yogurt flavors before topping it with as much fresh fruit, crunchy add-ins, and spoons as they could possibly eat ($0.39/oz.). For fans of un-frozen feasting, the acai bowl offers up tepid tastes of coconut milk, hemp milk, or apple juice blended with acai berries and slices of fresh fruit for a treat loaded with antioxidants, amino acids, and vowels ($6.25 on average). Goji berries and granola join a handful of other fresh add-ins and toppings that add texture and taste without adversely affecting the fiber-rich snack's healthful reputation.
The staff at Velvet Yogurt swirls together its probiotic-rich snacks with a heaping helping of environmental awareness, using only 100% biodegradable spoons, napkins, and cups for its chilly concoctions. Carved pub tables and handcrafted artwork fashion a lively environment for guests as they enjoy a snack or attempt to calculate their yogurt's value in Aruban florins.
Angela Kishijara and Martha White learned to cook in their hometown of Chimbote, Peru, picking up culinary techniques and absorbing recipes as they scampered around their mother's kitchen. "Our mother was always in the kitchen cooking for us," Angela explained to reporters from OC Metro, "and she was an inspiration to all of us kids to learn how to cook."
Today, Angela and Martha bring their mother's traditional Peruvian recipes and lifetime of cooking experience to their own restaurant—Inka Mama's. Deep in the kitchen, the sisters and their chefs fold fresh chili peppers, garlic, and cilantro into a variety of Peruvian dishes, from citrusy fresh seafood ceviche to juicy beef lomo saltado. To craft their signature pescado a lo chimbotano, they simmer fish in a spicy garlic and chili broth before sprinkling on fresh cilantro.
Out in the airy dining rooms, customers snack on complimentary baguette slices dipped in flavorful green house-made aji sauce. Meanwhile, bartenders dole out pints of Peruvian beers and whip up pisco sours—a traditional cocktail made from grape brandy and sugar—also the ingredients of Crush soda for Adults. Soft lamps dangle from the ceiling, illuminating rustic stone walls and vivid murals of Peruvian landscapes.
