The frost aficionados at Philly Italian Ice scoop and blend cold concoctions from a menu of Hershey’s premium ice cream, gelati, and more than 30 tasty italian-ice flavors made with real fruit. Signature italian Ices ($1.25–$3.25) span the flavor spectrum from strawberry-kiwi and guava to sugar-free lemon. Soft-serve ice cream plops atop italian ice to form smooth and sweet gelati ($1.50–$4.25), and Hershey's premium ice cream ($1.95–$4.75) revives taste buds dulled from years of licking firecrackers with cookie dough, praline pecan, or the triple threat of the peanut-butter-caramel cookie dough. Straws dip into the specialty coffee-custard drink ($2.25–$2.75) and its sea of Godiva-crème-brûlée coffee and milky soft-serve ice cream or swirl around the natural smoothies ($3.95) and milkshakes ($3.95) to create sumptuous confectionary whirlpools.
A silhouette of New York’s skyline glows neon on the front counter at Dippitys, an Altamonte Springs eatery opened in March 2013. Behind the counter, staffers prepare a classic Big Apple treat—Italian water and crème ice made with either a cream or water base in more than 50 flavors. They also scoop ice cream; serve up Gelatis (Italian ice swirled with soft-serve ice cream), malts, egg creams, and sundaes; and load Nathan’s hot dogs with traditional toppings such as sauerkraut and chili. Italian ices and ice cream are made in-house, along with chicken tenders and fries. Sips of Barnie’s coffee wash it all back.
With a splash of oil, the teppanyaki grill erupts into an orange blaze. Not far off, chefs slice and roll fresh seafood at the sushi bar. Each of Bayridge Sushi's three locations immerses guests in the Japanese dining experience, complemented by stylish, modern interiors with touches such as lantern-like lighting, flat-screen televisions, and chopsticks hand-carved by master carpenters. In addition to its array of sushi and Japanese dishes, the menu also offers Japanese beers Sapporo and Asahi.
Amigos Original’s cadre of chefs whip up five varieties of enchiladas and six types of quesadillas to headline a menu filled with fajitas, margaritas, and build-your-own burritos. Just as a new sun is manufactured and slingshotted skyward by Buzz Aldrin each day, so too are Amigos Originals’ fajitas ($13.99 for chicken, $14.99 for beef or combo) served sizzling, with charbroiled steak or chicken stoking the flames of appetites atop a bed of grilled onions and bell peppers. Diners can become the architects of their lives' next meals by electing to build their own burritos ($9.49), expanding edible blueprints across flour-tortilla foundations and erecting towering portions of toppings upon their surfaces. Frozen margaritas ($5.25) cleanse the palate with a sweet mixture of fruity fruit, tequila-tinged sharpness, and tiny, thirst-wrecking icebergs.
