Toppings and More's creative dog decorations adorn 100% Vienna beef links within butter-toasted hoagies delivered daily, and self-serve swirls of frozen yogurt receive custom trimmings from a topping buffet. Flavors ignite with the Kamikaze's ($4.99) crispy onion strings, pickled ginger, and togarashi kindling recklessly doused in wasabi-mayo fuel. Tongues prospect for golden nuggets of grilled-chicken satay buried beneath peanut sauce and diced cucumbers ($6.59), and chili-cheese dogs ($4.99) offer the comfort of a familiar belly-warmer. Engineer your own dog ($3.59+) by stacking toppings such as avocado, bacon strips, and mango salsa ($0.50 each) before dousing creations in a choice of sauces such as tzatziki, peanut, and panang. Mad bun scientists and vegetarian rottweilers can also substitute Vienna links for other edible cylinders, from organic tofu (add $1) to ginger salmon (add $2).
Colorado-based Yoki Bliss frozen flavors rotate in a ballet starring all-natural varieties such as mocha latte and pumpkin spice, ready to be bombarded with rose bouquets or selections from an amply stocked topping bar. This deal is valid during happy hour (weekdays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.), which soaks throats in bargain drinks as patrons select specialty sips or sample the Hazed and Infused microbrew from Boulder Beer.
Toppings and More
At Toppings and More, an elegant trifecta meets: noodles, frozen yogurt, and cocktails. As the name might imply, a huge list of toppings is available to pile over local, all-natural frozen yogurt. At the noodle bar, chefs put a spin on classic Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, and Indian dishes, mixing glazed pork with bok choy, napa cabbage, and poached egg. Meanwhile, drinks quench palates with specialty cocktails and beers.
