Within its recently renovated and refurbished walls, 3 Monkeys Pub & Grill spotlights a menu of hearty sandwiches and appetizers to accessorize frosty beers and TV screens glowing with athletic action. Shareable appetizers kick off chew-a-thons and include the Monster chicken strips, which chefs source from Oklahoma's infamous 100-foot-tall roaster and buddy up with a side of ranch or barbecue sauce ($4.75). The Porky Monkey steak sandwich transfixes stomachs with piles of flame-broiled sirloin, vegetables, and bacon perched atop a warm pub roll ($7.75). While watching a game on one of the eatery's nine TVs or its huge projector, guests can gulp down frothy glasses of Hamm's, Rainer, and Pabst Blue Ribbon ($2 each), or challenge the bar's mixologists to concoct cocktails from a huge range of liquors and mixers ($6+). Visitors can lounge on the outdoor patio year-round courtesy of heating units and 3 Monkey's seasonal contract with the Sun.
Old Town Burger & Breakfast serves up hearty, 100% certified Angus hamburg from two south Washington eateries. Carnivorous connoisseurs may choose the house burger, a quarter-pound of Angus beef capped with a fresh egg, country-cut bacon, American cheese, house sauce, onion, pickles, tomato, and crisp lettuce, all tucked between doughy bedsheets. Or they can opt to tackle the swiss-and-mushroom burger, a quarter-pound of Angus beef blanketed in swiss cheese and topped with pickles, sautéed mushrooms, crisp lettuce, onion, and tomato, piled sky-high on a bun. Guests may dine in or take entrees, both of which come with a side of french fries and a 16 oz. soft drink, to go for noshing in a local park or steam shovel.
Tropical Sno is one of the few eateries where you can order a rainbow. A primary-colored mix of pineapple and red and blue raspberry, the "Rainbow" is just one of the shop's many shaved ice flavor combos. Their other combos range from "Candy Apple," a mix of apple and cinnamon, to "Tiger's Blood," a strawberry and coconut cocktail. Clients can also build their own treats with up to three of the 29 available syrups, which range from fruity flavors to birthday cake and coffee. Add-ons are also available such as cream, to make the treat reminiscent of traditional Hawaiian-style shaved ice, and a spill stopper to catch any drips or tiny snowmen trying to jump ship.
Traveling thousands of miles for a great meal might seem extreme to some, but it makes sense to members of the Zhen family. As a group who's passionate about good food, they understand why some people travel just to taste delicacies from around the world. Fortunately, local diners need only travel as far as Taste of China—the Zhen family's second restaurant—to find fresh Chinese food that made the Chinese Restaurant News' Top 100 Chinese Restaurants in the USA list for three consecutive years.
Inside the restaurant, aromas waft from the semi-open kitchen, carrying the promise of dishes such as tender beef in spicy Szechuan sauce or shredded mu shu pork with wood ear mushrooms and savory pancakes. For a taste of something truly unique, diners can ask to to eat from the test-kitchen menu of seasonal dishes made from rare and elusive ingredients.
