“It’s such an amazing place on the coast, it’s like being on vacation on a sunny day. The other traders were very welcoming too, it’s a real community.”

Oakville-based Restaurant Brands International, owner of Tim Hortons and Burger King, is among three fast food giants considering bidding on Chinese health food and bakery chain Wagas, according to people familiar with the matter.

Yum China Holdings Inc. and Jollibee Foods Corp. also kick the tires, as well as interest from private equity firms, the sources said, asking not to be identified as the information is not public.

The owners of the company, whose sales are expected to reach nearly 1.2 billion yuan ($ 188 million) this year, seek a valuation of $ 800 to $ 1 billion or more, based on previous transactions in the industry as well as initial interests, the people said.

A buyer for the company could emerge as early as this year, with the goal of closing the deal next year, the people said. Reflections are still ongoing and no final decisions have been made, the people said.

Jollibee, Yum China and Wagas declined to comment, while representatives for Toronto-based Restaurants Brands did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Jollibee shares rose 3.8% in Manila, the biggest intraday gain in about two weeks.

Founded in 1999 as a cafe in Shanghai, Wagas has since expanded throughout China, with more than 160 stores, according to its website. It sells light meals, including potent salads, pastas, sandwiches, juices, and coffee.

Bloomberg reported last month that Wagas was considering a sale amid initial interest from potential investors.

New Jersey… I’m not crazy… I’m disappointed.

You are at the top of your game on a lot of things. You have some of the best colleges in the world, you are apparently very happy, although some of us doubt it, and you have made great strides in the area of ​​women’s health.

The only thing that surpasses your ability to overload the hell of your citizens is your ability to make great food. That’s why I found our most popular fast food restaurant surprising.

Before we get to that, let’s take a look at your CV:

Bagels

Grace Rowan / Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley

Round, pasty, and brushed with butter (or cream cheese, or lox, whatever floats on your boat), you have mastered the art of bagels. Surely you have a decent palette.

Pork Roll

Yeah, yeah, or “Taylor ham”. However, you want to talk about it. New Jersey, you crush the competition when it comes to breakfast meats. Type that pork roll over the aforementioned bagel with an egg and cheese and you have a great morning.

(#SaltPepperKetchup)

Cheese steaks

That’s right, Philadelphia! Your precious cheesesteaks may be named after you, but the best cheesesteak according to Anthony Bourdain can be found in the great Garden State. You can read about it here.

Saltwater taffy

Okay, I don’t know anyone who likes a piece of saltwater taffy, but it’s a Jersey Shore staple. We’ve made it a household name, so it deserves an honorable mention.

This brings me to my point….

A study was done on trends.google.com on the top fast food restaurants for each state and New Jersey is simply SHOCKING to me.

This New Jersey subreddit user said it best: My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined.

Our most sought after restaurant is Domino’s Pizza.

DOMINO PIZZA ??

I’m sorry we are home to pizzerias like Federicis, Pete and Elda’s, The Cabin, Piccolo’s Trattoria and you fools look on Google Domino’s ??

Jersey, you’re better than this!

Granted, there’s an hour and a place to order late at night from Domino’s, but it really was a surprising choice for a state known for its incredible pizzas. We’re not alone though, according to the graph, another 29 states share Domino’s as their most searched fast food restaurant on Google.

A word of advice: next time try Google search for “Trenton Tomato Pie”, you will get some tasty results!

The above post reflects the thoughts and observations of Kylie Moore of New Jersey 101.5. All opinions expressed are those of Kylie. You can follow Kylie on Instagram.

Dave Portnoy from every pizzeria at NJ Barstool reviewed

Dave Portnoy, commonly known as El Presidente, is the founder of Barstool Sports. Somewhere along the way, he decided to start looking at local pizzerias, and the concept took off. Here are all of the New Jersey pizzerias where Dave stopped by, along with the score he gave them.

Red flags for someone claiming to be from New Jersey

The best outdoor beer gardens at breweries in NJ

There are more options than ever to enjoy Garden State craft beer in an outdoor setting.

New Jersey tied for first place (with Kentucky) with 43% growth in the craft beer scene from 2015 to 2019, according to C + R research.

What follows is a roundup of the state’s breweries with quaint, dedicated outdoor seating if the weather permits.

Houston’s Favorite Soul Food Restaurant Is Preparing A New Place In The Heights Area https://trois-trente.com/houstons-favorite-soul-food-restaurant-is-preparing-a-new-place-in-the-heights-area/ Thu, 14 Oct 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://trois-trente.com/houstons-favorite-soul-food-restaurant-is-preparing-a-new-place-in-the-heights-area/ One of Houston’s favorite soul food destinations will soon have a new outpost in Independence Heights.

One of Houston’s favorite soul food destinations will soon have a new outpost in Independence Heights. Esther Lewis-Bernard will bring a second location of her beloved Esther’s Cajun Coffee at 5007 N. Shepherd Dr later this fall.

The new Esther’s represents a significant improvement over Lewis-Bernard’s original location on Yale Street, which will also remain open. The much larger space will allow for more seating, a larger kitchen and, for the first time, a full bar with cocktails.

“We are not moving; we are growing, ”Lewis-Bernard said in a statement. “We will always be here in Independence Heights, where I raised my six children and my parents Nathaniel and Gladiola Lewis raised their 11 children. This is our home and we love to serve our community.

Designed by Lewis-Bernard’s daughter, Dru Evans, the restaurant’s decor will feature a vintage stove that Esther’s mother and aunt used to cook family meals. In addition, the space will include a private dining room, a take-out window at the edge of the street and a large outdoor patio.

Operating with a larger kitchen will allow Esther’s to double its offering of steam trays from eight to 16 selections. In addition to staples like oxtails, smothered pork chops, and fried chicken, the extra capacity means special dishes like turkey necks and lamb chops will be featured more regularly. Of course, accompaniments such as black-eyed peas, candied yams, cornbread dressing, etc. will be present and taken into account.

The new location’s cocktail offerings will be based on classic Southern sips. Expect choices like frozen drinks, sparkling wine paired with juice, and adult punch.

“This trip was a leap of faith for Esther,” said Glashanda Lewis-Bernard, Esther’s eldest daughter and the brand’s sales director. “She trusted the word of God, and fourteen years later, we are still growing. The legacy continues from generation to generation as three of my mother’s children are now restaurateurs: my sister Dru Evans, my brother Lonnie Dow IV and myself. This new location will allow us to serve everyone in even more ways, and we couldn’t be more excited and grateful. ”

Cambridge’s vegan street food restaurant VetoMeato moves to central London https://trois-trente.com/cambridges-vegan-street-food-restaurant-vetomeato-moves-to-central-london/ Sun, 03 Oct 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://trois-trente.com/cambridges-vegan-street-food-restaurant-vetomeato-moves-to-central-london/ Two Suffolk business partners, who opened their first restaurant in Cambridge, have now brought their vegan street food brand to central London.

Two Suffolk business partners, who opened their first restaurant in Cambridge, have now brought their vegan street food brand to central London.

Justin Bone and Natalie Pace are the people behind the plant-based restaurant VetoMeato, which was located in Market Passage in Cambridge city center.

They bonded around a common love for food after their first meeting at the gym.

READ MORE: What’s New on CambridgeshireLive News

Back then, Justin was training every morning at 6 a.m. because he lived in a garage and didn’t want the owner to find out he lived there.

Five and a half years later they opened a new VetoMeato branch in Holborn, reports MyLondon.

The Holborn branch follows the success of their Cambridge restaurant.

It’s focused on the idea that “the food of the earth shouldn’t cost the earth” – and each dish on the menu costs less than £ 8.

“I call garage days the best days of my life”

Opening a restaurant was far from foreign to Justin, now 51, who worked in the restaurant business for 25 years.

But that same industry left him on the streets six years ago.

Justin traces his story back to his teenage years as a successful 100m athlete – he holds the Suffolk record to date.

When he quit running at 19 and went to college, Justin “discovered a great void in life” which he filled with drugs and drink.

He worked for 15 years in bars and nightclubs, then 10 years in restaurants.

“I was able to intelligently position myself in an atmosphere where it was okay to be a party animal,” said Justin, a recovering alcoholic.

“I have led a very hedonistic lifestyle for those 25 years.”

Although he was very successful at what he did, it all caught up with Justin and he found himself on the streets, unable to work.

He realized he was going to be homeless and rented a garage, which was all he could afford.

Every morning he left at 6 a.m. so the owner wouldn’t see him living there, and the only place open was the gym – where a few months later he met Natalie.

Today he calls the garage days “the best of my life”.

He considers his six months there as his rehab and it was during this time that he realized he was done with alcohol for good.

“When you realize relief is off the scale,” he said.

“Every morning I jumped out of bed – I say out of bed but it was a sleeping bag and cardboard – but my passion for life was completely rekindled.”

Food is the “glue” of their relationship

Natalie, who is trained in the art world, says she has had “food-related issues” for about a decade.

Her eating disorder was at its peak when she was in college, but after that it was a very long journey to where she is now at 36.

“When I was 30, I thought ‘this must be something that I approach correctly’,” she said. “This has to change. “

So she learned about nutrition and holistic approaches to health.

Now, with VetoMeato, Natalie wants the message to be positive, not about deprivation or what you can’t eat – but celebrating all you can.

When Natalie and Justin met five and a half years ago, food became the “glue” of their relationship.

This evolved into conversations about being healthy and living lightly on the planet, and after a stint in hosting fitness events, the idea for VetoMeato was born.

Justin believed he would never return to the restaurant industry after it took him to the bottom.

“When I ended up living on the streets, I blindly swore that I would never return to the industry,” he said.

But meeting Natalie changed that.

“After meeting Natalie, we felt it was necessary for me to come back. I’m here for a reason. I have the skills,” he added.

Plant-based food under £ 8



Nothing on the menu costs more than £ 8
Nothing on the menu costs more than £ 8

VetoMeato was launched last year during the Cambridge lockdown.

Natalie explained, “The pandemic has shed light on how planetary, environmental and physical health are so intertwined.”

The Cambridge branch was a success despite all the complications of the lockdowns, but ultimately the couple, who live in Bury St Edmunds, decided to open a new branch in London.

VetoMeato is located in The Old Crown pub in Holborn.

A low carbon approach is at the heart of the business, which is why Justin and Natalie are collaborating with existing bars and pubs rather than building something new.

The menu offers classic and comforting street food from around the world – burgers, kebabs, curries and bowls – and nothing on the menu costs more than £ 8.

It wants to be accessible to all guests, whether they are vegans or not.

The restaurant’s name comes from their main message – asking people to veto meat for at least a day.

But, VetoMeato isn’t just a restaurant and bar, the couple said.

Justin and Natalie hope to make it a vegan hub where they can host industry events and meetups.

An Indian street food chain with more than 40 branches across the UK has opened a restaurant in Bristol.

Chaiiwala started in Delhi in 1927 before moving to the UK with an opening in Leicester four years ago, where she has built up a loyal following for her Indian-inspired teas, street food and soft drink.

Chaiiwala means someone who prepares, sells and serves chai tea at small roadside stalls in the Indian subcontinent.

READ MORE:The new Five Guys restaurant a few weeks before its opening

The new Bristol branch is located on Stapleton Road on the site of the old employment center.

The small restaurant is located next to the Turkish supermarket Alfu International, which opened in July. The upper floor has been converted into apartments which have all been rented for between £ 1,100 and £ 1,500 per month.

Chaiiwala, open from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m., is already proving very popular with locals, with queues sometimes in the street. Awais Tahir, Chaiiwala franchise manager for the South West and South Wales region, told Bristol Live it was “absolutely manic, we didn’t expect to be this busy the first week”.

The Cardiff-based entrepreneur plans to open more branches in the region. In addition to its Cardiff branch and its brand new Bristol branch, it is exploring the possibility of opening another cafe in Clifton.

Mr Tahir said the Stapleton Road cafe offered an “opportunity to give back to the community and create jobs”.

There are currently vacancies at the Stapleton Road branch, paid at the national minimum wage based on age.

Mr. Tahir describes Chaiiwala as an “Indian version of Starbucks, if not better.”

Easton resident Sabiha, who dined there earlier this week, said the place had a “really nice vibe” and was a “cheaper alternative to Starbucks.”



The chain’s menu includes an all-day desi breakfast with an omelet, spicy beans or dal, roti and chai, as well as dishes such as chili paneer, butter chicken roti, pav bhaji and mogo chips.

The company plans to have 188 sites before the end of 2023, creating an average of 1,200 jobs per year‘.

WICKER PARK – A popular South Side restaurant offering ‘soul food with a twist’ is coming to Wicker Park.

Oooh Wee It Is opens November 15 at the Old Angry Pig Tavern, 2039 W. North Ave.

The restaurant menu will include items such as jerk chicken tips and roasted cupcakes, as well as a huge cereal bar with over 100 varieties.

Oooh Wee It Is opened its first location last fall in the southern suburbs of Burnham, followed by an expansion to the old Mather’s Cafe in Chatham in February.

Co-owner Mark Walker says Wicker Park offers a challenge to “go against the grain” and attract new customers.

Credit: Quinn Myers / Block Club Chicago
The former Angry Pig Tavern site in Wicker Park is set to be taken over by soul food restaurant Oooh Wee It Is in mid-November

“We’ve done market research in this area… and there aren’t a lot of restaurants like ours,” said Walker, who operates Oooh Wee It Is with his wife Shae. “We figured the Wicker Park area would be a great place to plant our feet at this point. So North Avenue and Damen, I don’t think they know what’s coming yet.

The new location will feature unique tickets, bands and DJs, board games and more.

“We will of course be adding new things to appeal to the neighborhood and the demographics as well,” Walker said. “We’re planning on making lobster and jerk chicken tarts, where we actually bring them to your table in a toaster oven. … We make oxtail sliders over there that we don’t do anywhere else.

Walker first entered the restaurant industry in 2014, when he started selling homemade sweet tea at Harold’s Chicken on 87th Street near Dan Ryan.

He has since expanded the tea business, the success of which prompted the Walkers to open their restaurant amid the pandemic. So far, the decision has paid off.

“We haven’t even been open for a year. And I don’t know of any restaurant that has gone this far in such a short time, but we try to make this trip as long as possible, ”Walker said.

Oooh Wee It Is is also opening a new location in Beverly in the old Dat Donuts on 111st Street near Longwood Drive. Opening Dec. 1, Walker says it will be mostly take-out with a few on-site meals, and will also serve as a hub for food trucks and the company’s food operations.

The Walkers are even considering a possible fifth location near the future Obama Presidential Center in Woodlawn, as well as out-of-state locations in Atlanta and Houston.

“I never assumed success would be so massive,” Walker said. “So I see this as a need in the community. And secondly, I guess the food is good. And so yes, we are doing very well.

Walker says he hopes to hire employees who live in the neighborhood to work at the Wicker Park location. Anyone interested can send their curriculum vitae to info@ooohweeitis.org.

The eyes of the beloved soul restaurant return almost a decade after it closed

Chef Casey Jenkins’ beloved soul restaurant Darker Than Blue will finally be back this fall. Jenkins signed a lease on a restaurant space at 413 N. Charles St. in Mount Vernon to revive the cafe, which became a gathering place for foodies and politicians during his nearly ten-year tenure on the ‘avenue Greenmount. The restaurant has had several promises of renewal since it closed in 2013. Initially, Jenkins had planned to move Darker Than Blue to a mixed-use development on 33rd and St. Paul Streets near Johns Hopkins University, but this project took too long to materialize, he said. In 2018, he announced his intention to bring Darker Than Blue to the Northwood Commons development near Morgan State University, but then decided that the property there “was a bit too expensive for us.”

There is so much to choose from when it comes to fast food these days that it’s hard to know where to start when trying to find a place to grab a bite to eat.

Gone are the days when you had to walk into a fast food restaurant and talk to someone in person – now it’s about getting behind the wheel or ordering through an app from the comfort of your bed.

But human interaction isn’t the only thing that has been forgotten with the advent of the 21st century – a handful of once-beloved fast food chains have been sidelined by people like McDonald’s and KFC.

The golden arches and fried chicken may have been around for a while, but the Wimpy takeout joint has been in the UK for two more decades, and it’s showing no signs of going anyway anytime soon.

In fact, a recent investment program saw many franchised restaurants switch to the company’s new “shift” design, which builds on the brand’s strong heritage and nostalgic traditions, while also featuring new colors. , bright furnishings and uniforms.

Wimpy has also taken a step into the modern era by introducing home delivery – with more than half of its restaurants now offering home delivery services through apps like Just Eat.

Considering the fast food chain has been in the UK for 67 years now, it seems remarkable that I haven’t heard of it, so thought it was about time I gave it a try.

The basic red and white color scheme and old-fashioned decor of Wimpy in Maidstone was somewhat heartwarming.

It reminded me of days at McDonald’s as a kid before switching to a slightly classier green uniform and better furniture.

I was pleasantly surprised to see a good selection of vegetarian options on the menu, including a Spicy Bean Burger and a Southern Fried Quorn Burger.

A quick Google search shows that some restaurants now even serve a Beyond Meat vegan burger, proving that Wimpy is trying to keep up with the times.

They also offer all-day breakfasts, jacket potatoes, salads, toast, and a huge selection of retro sundaes and sweet treats.

A nostalgic favorite being the Brown Derby, which is a Wimpy classic consisting of a hot donut topped with ice cream, chocolate sauce, and mini chunks of fudge.

The staff at Wimpy in Maidstone could not have been more welcoming, they greeted me as soon as I walked into the restaurant with happy faces and smiles rarely seen in fast food establishments.

Nostalgic

As much as we all like sometimes to avoid talking to people, it is much more enjoyable to interact with a human than a machine.

Unfortunately for me, my first experience with Wimpy was about to be disappointed that they were closing at 4pm and therefore had stopped serving food by the time I arrived.

I was looking forward to my nostalgic meal at this point so it was a bit disappointing but the staff were extremely apologetic and offered me ice cream instead.

You couldn’t be more nostalgic than a Mr. Whippy with a flake, so I was pretty happy with the result.

Although closing time is approaching, the staff were in no rush to rush customers and made an effort to entertain the children sitting in the restaurant.



The restaurant has retained its basic colors and decor

Wimpy is clearly making a conscious effort to please the next generation, without losing the element of nostalgia it brings.

There was something reassuring about seeing a new generation enjoying a takeout that existed long before my parents were born.

I will be sure to visit Wimpy and hope to try the food next time.
