An Asian gourmet cafe in Winchester is set to expand after relocation plans are approved.

Jo Lao of Bento Factory has had a planning application approved to change the use of 3 St Thomas Street from retail to cafe/restaurant.

The plan is to move from their current premises at 1 St Thomas Street to accommodate more customers.

Bento Factory serves a variety of Asian dishes such as sushi and kimbap. It also serves Vietnamese coffee.

On the application’s planning statement it said: ‘The proposal is to convert the existing retail space into a cafe and restaurant with tables for dining and serving take-out. This space would be intended to house the Bento Factory, which is a successful small business that has grown out of its existing very small premises two doors down the road at number 1.

“The proposed works will provide much needed larger premises for the Bento Factory restaurant/café, very close to their current premises and in a mixed use area containing other similar facilities.

“The program will convert the ground floor of this retail building into a cafe/restaurant, to allow a successful local business to expand into new premises, just a few doors down from their current location. The existing residential use will remain as is on the upper floors.

“No alterations to the exterior facades are proposed, with only extractor vents on the low rear roof, which is not visible from the street. Minimal internal changes will not significantly affect the listed historic fabric or the character of the building.

“The proposal sensitively converts the existing without materially affecting the setting of the nearby listed buildings or the character of the conservation area while making a positive contribution to a thriving local business.”

The City of Winchester Trust supported the application and said: “We welcome a local business wishing to expand.”

The planning officer’s assessment said: ‘The site currently has commercial use and the owners wish to move their food business, the Bento factory, from No 1 due to a need for additional space.

“The change of use requires some minor internal and external modifications to facilitate the change. Externally the only change is the addition of a flue pipe to the rear of the shed extension roof. This is considered relatively minor and cannot be seen in the wider conservation area.

Aminah McDaniel and Angel King came from the cold and the heat.

The longtime friends moved last month from their Sooo Trucking Delicious food truck outside their Southwest Philadelphia precinct to a downtown Southern-style restaurant called Sooo Delicious Soul Food Cafe. The place, at 1112 Locust St. across from Picanha Brazilian Steakhouse, was previously home to Yellow Bicycle Canteen.

It’s mostly take-out, although there are several small tables. There is space in the back that can be converted into outdoor seating.

King, from West Philadelphia, and McDaniel, from Germantown, met 13 years ago. King had a baking business and McDaniel was in real estate when they decided to collaborate on a food truck in early 2020, moving to 56th and Vine Streets in West Philadelphia near Haddington Plaza.

It turned out that now was not the right time to start a business. “A week later, they shut everything down,” King said.

Once the mobile food vendors were allowed to resume two weeks later, they set up shop at 5200 Grays Ave., outside their commissary, and began building a clientele. Almost immediately, they started considering a physical location. “We didn’t want to become stagnant,” King said.

McDaniel found the display case, which has a large kitchen on one side and a small dining area and room for a menu board and cash register on the other side.

Just as they drew workers from businesses near Grays Avenue, King and McDaniel drew staff from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, two blocks away. Sooo Delicious is the only soul food restaurant in Washington Square West.

The best sellers so far are the flavored wings (the garlic parmesan and honey hot are particularly tasty), the crab cakes and the grilled and fried salmon.

Opening hours: 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, noon to 10 p.m. Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.

A new soul food cafe that finds many uses for Maryland’s giant chunk crab meat opens tomorrow in Capitol Heights, Maryland. In A Minute Café comes from longtime friends and chefs Reginald Mack and Steven Wilson, whose respective restaurant businesses have dried up during the pandemic.

“When COVID-19 hit, it slowed everything down. All catering contracts have been canceled, ”Mack said.

The two decided to team up and turn the catering kitchen for Wilson’s Minute Events into a new delivery location that sells crab cakes, crab fries, BLT crab cakes on a buttery brioche bun and a LochMess Monster chicken cheesesteak topped with crab dip. The fried or blackened catfish arrives with accompaniments like macaroni and cheese, fried rice, yams, cabbage or asparagus. Wing orders ($ 1 each; five minimum) are brushed with Hennessy, Old Bay, jerk, or lemon pepper sauce. Dessert calls for peach cobbler or freshly baked cookies.

Pickup and delivery times are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday (closed Sunday).

“The food is ready in a minute,” Mack says, explaining the name. “The neighborhood is willing and ready – they were waiting for this. “

Wilson let Mack use his commercial kitchen for catering concerts. Now the pair have room for around 10 seats if they decide to allow dining inside down the line.

“The kitchen is dynamite. I had a food truck and these are really small inside – now I have two deep fryers, ”says Mack.

Another soul food place, Uncaged Chefs, recently opened in District Heights, Maryland. He’s also known for his over-the-top dishes like Cajun crab fries topped with crab cakes or fried lobster with Hennessy and Teddy Graham French toast.

Mack is happy to see black-owned businesses garnering more attention as part of a growing social justice movement.

“There is no better time than the present,” says Mack.

The Curry Noodle had an interesting depth, thanks to the mixture of yellow curry spices and coconut cream.

A taste of … @Siam Thai Street Food Cafe, 22 rue Heuheu, Taupo.

We had heard … The small Thai restaurant made delicious fresh meals.

We ordered… Pad Ke-maow ($ 17.50) and a yellow curry noodle soup ($ 17.50) with a side of fresh spring rolls ($ 14.50).

Fresh spring rolls, $ 14.50 for three.

ROBERT STEVEN / STUFF

Fresh spring rolls, $ 14.50 for three.

The pad ke-maow noodles were long, flat, and had a certain soy flavor. Large slices of fried pork were mixed in the dish, along with eggs and eggplant. A Google search revealed that the pad ke-maow are also known as “drunken noodles” – I guess they’ve absorbed the soy sauce. Because we ordered “hot” spices, chunks of red pepper were added as well.

The yellow curry had an interesting depth, thanks to the mixture of yellow curry spices and coconut cream. The chicken, shrimp and calamari paired well with the creamy soup. The pak choi and cabbage gave it a bit of crunch.

Fresh spring rolls probably wouldn’t be filling enough for a main course, but they were a delicious cleanser for the palate. Plump with lettuce, juicy chicken, fine noodles and herbs, we dipped them in the accompanying sweet sauce and dabbed them in breadcrumbs. With two courses costing $ 32.00, this is definitely a cheap night out.

@Siam, Taupo’s little cafe-style Thai restaurant, on rue Heuheu, Taupo

The service… was friendly but succinct. The meals arrived 15 minutes after we ordered them.

The atmosphere…. @Siam has an unpretentious cafe vibe. Thai writing adorns the walls, as well as drapes and cultural objects. The hallway leading to the toilet has a water point and other interesting items. The Thai theme is simple but not overdone. There was no music, but it was certainly not quiet with the chatter of our guests.

If you are going to… We recommend that you ask for a moderately spicy level curry. The flavors are delicate and to be enjoyed – they don’t need to be sprinkled with chili. Vegetarians can request additional tofu and vegetables to replace meat, at no additional cost. The dishes arrive quickly and are light and fresh.

Sometimes just taking a quick bite can feel like you’re navigating a minefield of igniting bombs. Whether you’re trying to find a sandwich with gluten-free bread or trying to figure out if your salad is coated in a dairy-based dressing, there comes a time when you might wonder why, exactly, eating healthy can be. so much work.

And while wellness-conscious cafes are more popular than ever, one newcomer is making the inquiry process effortlessly positive: Dr Smood.

Dr Etti Ben-Zion
Dr Etti Ben-Zion

The idea came to Danish business developer Rene Sindlev and his wife, Patrizia Manici Sindlev, while they were living in Denmark and feeling frustrated with the lack of healthy restaurants to take out. So they decided not only to open theirs in Miami, but also to make it healthier than anything they had seen before. The first step? The couple recruited a holistic and healing nutritionist, Dr Etti Ben-Zion, to lead the menu.

“The concept was for everything to be anti-inflammatory,” says Dr. Ben-Zion. “This means that 80 percent of your food must come from plants, which is why our products are 80 percent plant-based.” That’s not all: from juices and salads to sandwiches and snacks (all organic, of course), they wanted every item on the menu to be as nutrient dense as possible.

Obviously the Sindlevs were on to something. In just two years, Dr Smood has gone from one location to five in two cities (the other being New York, where three locations opened in the span of two months) and four more are on their way this summer and this fall.

Here, Dr. Ben-Zion shares more details on what’s going on in the super-healthy, super-delicious offerings – at this rate, a Dr. Smood may open near you sooner than you think.

Here are four ways Dr. Smood changes healthy eating on the go.

Cafe Dr. Smood

1. Everything is dairy free

Dr Smood is a completely dairy-free zone, opting instead for homemade almond, cashew, and Brazil nut milks.

You’ll find them in 15 different items, ranging from smoothies and lattes to sweets like maca chia pudding and cocoa milk (their version contains Brazil nut milk mixed with cocoa nibs, cocoa powder. cocoa, vanilla powder and Himalayan salt).

Cafe Dr. Smood

2. Coffee is low in acidity and rich in antioxidants

Instead of your average cup of coffee, Dr. Smood uses white coffee beans. “White coffee originated in Yemen thousands of years ago,” says Dr. Ben-Zion. “[Farm workers] didn’t have time to roast the coffee for very long, so they lightly toasted it instead. This gives it a cream color, instead of the dark brown of roasted coffee. “

The bright side ? Dr. Ben-Zion claims that white coffee has lower acidity than black coffee, which makes it easier on the digestive system. (Although not all scientists support this idea.) “It is also very high in polyphenols, which are very high in antioxidants,” says Dr. Ben-Zion.

But Dr Smood didn’t stop there. The brand actually created their own coffee formula, infusing Hawaj beans, a combination of Yemeni spices, like turmeric and cumin, known to be anti-inflammatory, energizing, and good for digestion. Oh, and sure enough, you won’t find a bag of refined sugar behind the counter – coconut sugar is used instead for anything that needs a little sweetening. (Your move, Starbucks.)

3. Sandwiches won’t put you in a coma

You might be surprised to find a menu of sandwiches at Dr Smood, but make no mistake, they aren’t made with your average whole wheat bread.

“We created a special ‘performance bread’ made from just four ingredients: millet flakes, spelled flour, water and salt, that’s it,” says Dr. Ben-Zion. “It won’t raise your blood sugar and is not high in carbohydrates, that way you won’t feel like taking a nap after eating it.”

Pair one with a green juice or ‘booster’ – waters infused with ingredients like turmeric, chlorophyll, maca, and spirulina – and you might find that your 3-hour crashes are suddenly a thing of the past. .

Dr. Smood Supplements

4. There are also supplements on hand

Dr Smood has also formulated his own line of supplements to address six common wellness concerns: general health, immunity, energy, beauty, potency, and detox. Many of the menu items are labeled with these same benefits, which is helpful when choosing what to order.

And since you might be overwhelmed by all the amazing options – organic tiramisu or cinnamon roll? – this kind of Wellness Rx is exactly what the doctor ordered.

If you don’t live near a Dr Smood, here’s how to make your own ultimate anti-inflammatory meal. An even simpler tip: use this anti-inflammatory oil with every meal.

Ruby McIntyre, longtime owner of Ruby’s Soul Food Cafe in Kansas City, dies aged 95 https://trois-trente.com/ruby-mcintyre-longtime-owner-of-rubys-soul-food-cafe-in-kansas-city-dies-aged-95/ Wed, 13 May 2015 07:00:00 +0000 https://trois-trente.com/ruby-mcintyre-longtime-owner-of-rubys-soul-food-cafe-in-kansas-city-dies-aged-95/ Ruby McIntyre, in the kitchen at Ruby’s Soul Food Cafe, was known as “Miss Ruby” or even “Mama”.

Ruby McIntyre, in the kitchen at Ruby’s Soul Food Cafe, was known as “Miss Ruby” or even “Mama”.


Don Bowerman

Ruby W. McIntyre, who for 50 years offered as much affection and goodwill as she made heaps of fried chicken, andouilles and peach cobbler at Ruby’s Soul Food Cafe, died Tuesday in the age 95.

Opened in 1952, the small restaurant on 15th Street and Brooklyn Avenue has become an institution. Regulars who filled the place daily, including generations of law enforcement officers, have come to know McIntyre as “Miss Ruby” or even “Mama.”

“When she was there she was both a very gracious, brilliant host in her restaurant, very calm, very kind,” recalls Don Bowerman, who first met McIntyre 40 years ago as a that Kansas City rookie policeman and stayed his life. friend. “But if you ran into her, she might come up with four-letter words so fast it would make your head spin.”

McIntyre died in hospice care in the town where she grew up, Lexington, Tennessee, said Bowerman, who created a Facebook page in honor of McIntyre and his restaurant, the former patrons of the Ruby’s Soul Food Cafe.

Boddie Parker, one of McIntyre’s cousins ​​from Tennessee who was raised to call McIntyre his aunt Ruby, said McIntyre was known in the family as someone who was not afraid to stretch a little truth in the service of a good story.

“We have always agreed with what she said,” Parker said.

In 1988, McIntyre told The Star that she started cooking at the age of 3 on a plantation in Tennessee, although in other news articles she said she was 5. Parker said some family members suspected McIntyre’s parents worked as sharecroppers rather than plantation workers.

“Miss Effie Howe – she owned the plantation – taught me how to cook,” McIntyre said in 1988. “Everyone went out into the fields and picked cotton. I stayed in the house and did all the cooking and cleaning too.

In-depth biographical information on Ruby McIntyre is scarce. Parker stated that McIntyre was born Ruby Watson on February 18, 1920. She was formerly married to Joshua McIntyre, who is believed to have died in the 1960s.

McIntyre arrived in Kansas City in 1949 and took a cooking job at William Jewell College, the first place she received a formal education.

“I tell people that you are never too old to learn,” she said.

In previous interviews, McIntyre told The Star that she started her business selling pies in the back of her car, followed by sandwiches. She eventually opened a counter where she sold chicken, andouilles, meatloaf, salad dressing, black-eyed peas and an assortment of cobblers, pies and homemade ice cream.

McIntyre did not have any biological children but raised a niece, Jackie Murray, as his daughter. Murray lives in Kansas City and has children of their own, whom McIntyre considered to be his grandchildren.

At the cafe, which has since closed, McIntyre was well known for her collection of naughty sayings, such as her advice to busy diners: “Slow down. You will like it longer.

McIntyre’s years of activity have not been without drama.

In October 1976, three men attempted to rob McIntyre and four customers shortly before 5:30 a.m., about 30 minutes after the restaurant opened. McIntyre escaped through the back door. A report of the theft prompted officers in Kansas City and Jackson County to converge on their favorite restaurant. In an attempt to escape, the robbers took a hostage. Police shot dead two of the men and injured the third.

A year later, an accident outside the restaurant sent a Cadillac smashing through the front of its business. In 1991, a fire closed the café for four months. The restaurant reopened after each incident, often with the help of dedicated patrons.

Parker said McIntyre returned to Tennessee in 2003.

“She said she wanted to come home,” Parker said.

Until the past two years, when her health slowed her down, McIntyre, even in the early 90s, spent days helping the elderly in a nursing home.

“She would always do whatever she wanted to do,” Parker said.

For seniors, that included getting into the kitchen.

“She loved to cook for people,” Parker said.
