Wood partitions rise between tables at Thang Thang, creating a bubble of privacy around each dining party. That means you can slurp your ramen in peace. Try the customer-favorite spicy Spam ramen, which pairs the meat with kimchi and a boiled egg. Complement the dish with beer and a game of Jenga.

The Flame Broiler founder Young Lee found himself eating out of paper bags quite often. His career required a great deal of travel during the day, which made eating from fast food restaurants a habit. Unfortunately, his options for healthier, quick-service fare left him craving something different. In 1995, he took matters into his own hands and opened the first Flame Broiler location, serving Korean-style slices of beef and chicken that were free of dairy, trans-fat, HFCS, and added MSG. He didn't just take away harmful ingredients, though?he also added his signature Flame Broiler marinade and sauce, beds of white and brown rice, and slices of crisp vegetables. This more nutritious take on fast food caught on, as diners can now eat at 135 Flame Broiler locations in four different states and two parallel universes.

Aria Kabob Cafe captures authentic Afghan flavors with a menu of skewered halal meats soaked in fresh spice marinade. Woven patterns from Afghan rugs stretch across the walls as diners dive into a tapestry of flavors in an appetizer such as the medley of turnovers stuffed with potatoes, chives, and special seasoning in the bolani mix, or the Afghan nachos crowned with chili, cheese, beans, and jalapeños. The kebab entree pierces cubes of meat such as broiled lamb and char-grilled ground beef, and arrives at tables with an entourage of rice, salad, and bread. Lunch specials include the plate of lamb shank served with white or brown rice, spinach, and bread, providing ample midday fuel for an evening of howling at the moon. Sips of an espresso, latte, or cappuccino from the café reenergize nosh-weary mouths, and smoothies deliver fresh glasses of strawberry banana, banana, apple, or orange flavors.
