If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice?s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn?t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it?s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.
Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there?s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there?s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice?all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.
In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit?which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.
With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.
Absence makes the heart grow founder, as the saying goes. And for husband and wife, Peter and Laddawan (“Mae”), that couldn’t be truer. The Thailand-born duo decided that after 20 years of working 12-hour days in restaurants in America, including their own, they needed a break. But, nearly a year after selling their restaurant and retiring, Peter and Mae found themselves itching to get back into the business. So they established Chang Puak - White Elephant Restaurant in December 2006.
At White Elephant, Peter, Mae, their children, and a niece work together to serve up the same type of food Mae learned to cook in Thailand and perfected over the years. These traditional dishes range from a yellow curry with chicken to a tom yum prawn soup with a touch of chili. This soup in particular is known for its ability to clear stuffy sinuses faster than snorting pepper.
No matter what dish patrons order, the family endeavors to treat them like royalty—after all, the restaurant was named after the sacred white elephants owned by the royal family of Thailand. Like the restaurant’s guests, these elephants are fed well and are always treated with respect.
Bars typically stay open from late afternoon until well past midnight. But Produce Alley Sports Tavern takes the opposite approach, hosting pub-style breakfasts and lunches between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. Using daily goods from the surrounding Golden Gate Produce Market, the tavern's chefs top three-egg shrimp omelets with avocado and douse chicken-fried steak with gravy.
By lunchtime, the cooks turn their attention to grilling skirt steaks marinated in balsamic vinegar and rosemary, as well as crowning open-faced burgers with grilled onions and mushrooms. Amid feasts complemented by freshly ground coffee or beer, patrons can watch sports highlights on flat-screen TVs or play a round of pool in Produce Alley's billiards room.
Fresh ingredients and homemade food help differentiate Cecilia's Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria from other Italian restaurants. The menu's full of Italian favorites, such as spaghetti with homemade meatballs and shrimp linguine covered in creamy alfredo, but there are also signature dishes. All of Cecilia's pizzas are baked in a brick oven, and pies include the Marco Pollo (garlic chicken strips, olives, red onions, and diced tomatoes) and the Toscana (pesto sauce, chicken strips, artichoke hearts, and pine nuts). And since it's only a few minutes from San Francisco International Airport, locals can grab a bite to eat before traveling away or stop by on the way home as a welcome-back celebration.
