Churros are best straight from the fryer—the outside hot and crisp, and the inside so fluffy that it practically melts upon first bite. From their stand in the midst of Plaza Las Americas, the staff at Churros El Tigre has perfected this choux-based delight. They whip them up from scratch, and top the still-warm treats with an array of housemade sauces, including chocolate, strawberry preserves, bavarian cream.
They also sling a variety of other desserts to give shoppers a midday boost of energy. They transform bananas into a decadent treat, served sliced, hot, caramelized, and topped in sweet lechera. Flurries of shaved ice make up their raspados, which are sweetened with peach, coconut, pineapple and other fruit flavors for a drink as refreshing as a mouthful of baby tears.
Voted No. 4 in the Top 10 Birthday Chains for Kid Birthday Parties in 2010 by Parents magazine, Pump It Up sprawls over 11,000 square feet of play areas and party rooms teeming with inflatable fun. A stalwart staff oversees the neighborhood of bounce houses and air-filled playthings that populate the indoor arena, including a regal throne for celebrating birthdays or announcing edicts mandating dessert for breakfast. The ascending wall of the Vertical Rush challenges climbers with a hump-shaped obstacle, and attached dueling slides send victors careening into fun. Throughout the week, families can pop in for open play and lectures on refinancing mortgages on treehouses, or tote along their own mini entourage for birthday party packages complete with private rooms, complimentary invites, and a veritable stockpile of extras to customize the celebratory shenanigans.
Clients rarely cross the threshold at Excellent Cleaners. Every day, the cleaners' fleet of yellow cars canvas their area picking up bags full of customers' clothing free of charge. They then refresh items and lift away stains using a waterless system, even hemming skirts and sewing on buttons at customer request. The next day, garments get loaded back onto the delivery car and returned to its owner, usually full of stories about their "spa day."
