2019 Great Falls restaurant week | Community

GREAT FALLS- Restaurant week is in full swing in Great Falls! After chatting with those making it happen, there are many dishes you can try from Feb. 15 to the 23.
As it turns out, there’s a 10 seed district tournament happening right here at CMR, meaning people from all over will be in town looking to grab a bite to eat. The good news is that eight places are mixing up special dishes in honor of Restaurant Week.
Those include Clark and Lewie’s Pub & Grill, Celtic Cowboy, Rikki’s Bar Restaurant, Enbar, Sip’n Dip Lounge, Jah-T’aime, Teryiaki Madnes and Electric City Coffee House & Bistro.
Great Falls made $198,000,000 from tourism in 2018, and $50,000,000 of that was spent on food. This is exactly why Visit Great Falls has strategically placed Restaurant Week in between sporting events and back-to-back weekends, bringing in folks like the Monte’s from the Sweet Grass Hills Area to watch their grandson play.
“This is our favorite place. We’ve been staying here for years,” said the Monte family.
Whenever they’re not in Great Falls, you’ll find them enjoying prime rib here at Clark and Lewie’s, or maybe this year’s Restaurant Week dish, an ultimate bacon cheese burger.
“Hamburger infused with fresh bacon. We have a bacon sauce, we have a cottage bacon and a bacon aoli,” said Donald Johnson the Food and Beverage Manager over at Clark and Lewie’s.
Completely switching taste bud gears over to Indian cuisine, you’ll find yourself enjoying an Indian dish called chicken tikka masala at Electric City Coffee House and Bistro.
“We’ve always had great response to Indian food here. I feel like it’s very limited in Great Falls. What better week to offer it when we’re trying to eat our way through the city,” said Lindsay Rodgers, a manager over at Electric City Coffee House & Bistro.
Moving on to Rikki’s Bar and Restaurant, they’re whipping up tossed lobster lasagna.
“It gives our customers an opportunity to try something they may not get to try off of our menu,” said Kathy Kuntz, a manager over at Rikki’s Bar and Restaurant,
So if you’re still snowed in on this cold February day, the good news is you have all of next week to get out and experience something new.

From It Happened One Night to Runaway Bride, from clumsy meet cutes to rain-soaked declarations of love, these films reflect our experiences but are often just as problematic as they are comforting. They’re hugely successful and deeply loved by many, but—being frequently dismissed as guilty pleasures—they have often avoided critical analysis.

The film’s point of departure is one city over one month: New York City and its outer boroughs during August 2017. It’s a month heavy with the tension of a new President, growing anxiety over everything from rising rents to marching white nationalists, and unrelenting news of either wildfires or hurricanes on every coast.

For 35 years, Akio recreated vintage Zeppelin concerts note-for-note in small Tokyo clubs, until the “real” Jimmy Page stopped by one night, and Akio’s life changed forever.

During a sweeping journey from the depths of the underground to a meteoric rise through the music industry, Gus wrestled with what it meant to be Lil Peep and in turn, what Lil Peep meant to so many. EVERYBODY’S EVERYTHING is an intimate, humanistic portrait that seeks to understand an artist who attempted to be all things to all people.

Want a vacation where you can explore the outdoors while eating international cuisine? Try Utah.

By Andrea Sachs , The Washington Post
“This is a great activity for date night,” a young employee at the Soap Factory in Provo informed me when I walked in as a party of one. I looked around the room and saw many couples making their own soap (for their future His and Her sinks?). Then I noticed a penguin mold in the bin, and I found my companion for the night.
The Utah Valley city is not your typical destination or college town; it has a long and strong affiliation with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Two of its most prominent institutions are Brigham Young University and the Provo City Center Temple, both of which are ringed by majestic peaks.
Provo was named for the French Canadian trapper Etienne Provost and was settled by Mormons in 1849. In 1875, church President Brigham Young established an academy that rose to university status at the turn of the 20th century. Nearly 90 percent of the population is made up of members of the LDS Church, and many residents are current or former BYU students, a distinction that has shaped the city’s culture. For instance, Mormons do not consume alcohol, and the dearth of bars and social drinking is notable in Utah County, much of which is a mountainous area that attracts outdoorsy types with happy-hour habits. (I spotted two bars downtown and overheard one group of friends searching for wine, which they located at the Black Sheep Cafe. The caveat: They had to order food, too.)
But Provo doesn’t need cocktails to stay up late. Many of the BYU campus museums remain open till 9 p.m. on weekdays, as do the shops and restaurants. On a Thursday night, in the dead of winter, I stood on tiptoes to read the chalkboard of flavors at Rockwell Ice Cream Co. The following evening, I set out to hear live folk music at Pioneer Book but ended up in line for country dancing lessons and later at a crafts table surrounded by fragrant oils and paints. (These activities do seem to support the county’s controversial nickname, Happy Valley, and I did feel fairly joyful ending the day with new toiletries and dance moves.)
The culinary scene, meanwhile, is partially influenced by the Mormon tradition of international missionary work. Members who leave for proselytizing return to Provo with expanded palates. You can play spin the globe in the historic downtown district, stopping on pho, Belgian frites, sushi, Indian, Czech pastries, Mexican fruit pops or kronuts in a French bakery. Of course, the natural attractions that preceded the pioneers are equally integral to the Provo experience. Depending on the season, you can fly-fish on the Provo River, boat on Utah Lake, and ski, snowboard and hike in the Wasatch Range. Bring a date, or go solo – Mother Nature doesn’t care about your relationship status.

Hop on the Provo Canyon Scenic Byway, also known as Highway 189, and watch civilization fade away in the rearview mirror. The 24-mile route runs from Provo to Heber City; don’t be hard on yourself if you don’t reach the endpoint. Several parks will draw you in and out of your car, such as Mount Timpanogos Park and South Fork Park, which links to the Great Western Trail, the epic trek from Canada to Mexico. The Provo River runs parallel to the road, and you can often see anglers standing in the water, waiting for the blue-ribbon trout to bite their flies. In Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, the 607-foot-tall Bridal Veil Falls unleashes curtains of water in the summer and freezes over in the winter, becoming a Spidey course for ice climbers. About 16 miles up, Deer Creek State Park offers activities for every weather system, including stand-up paddling, zip-lining, ice fishing and camping – in case you want to prolong your return to that other world.

You don’t need to own a car, or know the words to “Route 66,” to appreciate AAA Lakeside Storage and Museum. The vintage gas station signs, pumps and automobiles were amassed by the storage company’s owner, who scours the country for new acquisitions. Among his finds: a Polly Gas pump frozen in time and price at 32 cents per gallon; a Bob’s Big Boy statue with protruding belly; and a green Volkswagen bug that might cause you to punch the nearest shoulder. There is also a P-51 Mustang fighter plane with a Flying Tiger shark mouth that pretend-growls at visitors and a 1942 white halftrack used during World War II. The tour is self-guided, so unless you’re a baby boomer, you might need to call your grandpa to fill in the blanks. However, the website does provide information on select objects, such as the Roman Column Wayne Model 491 pump, which it describes as “the fanciest and most beautiful gas pump ever built by the Wayne Pump Company.” One person’s pit stop is another person’s passion.

The Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum, on the Brigham Young University campus, doesn’t count homo undergradutis among its 3 million-strong collection of mammals, crustaceans, birds, insects, arachnids and plants. However, it does display the equally fascinating liger, a hybrid cat named Shasta from the Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City, as well as an 8-foot-tall Kodiak bear that greets guests with a tinny growl. The research institute, which opened in 1978 and completed a renovation in 2014, is more than the final resting place for its subjects. At least once a day, staff members hold a live critter show. During my visit, the handler trotted out a cockroach, a corn snake named Reggie and a frog called Lemon, who is not allowed to fraternize with his brother, Lime. “They have been known to eat something too big and choke and die,” she said to an auditorium full of parents and children too squirmy to fully comprehend the implications. The university is also home to the Museum of People and Cultures, the Museum of Paleontology and the Museum of Art, which is currently exhibiting Pulitzer Prize-winning photos from the Newseum and towering willow branch sculptures by Patrick Dougherty.
On a tour of Provo Pioneer Village, Stevens Nelson doesn’t temper the truth. “When they got here,” said the museum director, “life was hell.” The open-air historical attraction focuses on the period from 1849, when the first Mormons landed in Provo, to 1869, when the railroad arrived. The seven original buildings demonstrate the early inhabitants’ will to survive, and sometimes in style. In the Turner Cabin, porcelain tableware and figurines adorn the shelves and a framed picture of hair art (yes, the stuff that sprouts from your head) hangs by the front door. The cotton coverlet in the Haws Cabin features a decorative chenille star pattern. “The women civilized this place,” Nelson said. “They made it happen.”
To learn about their food prep, visitors can peek into the Corn Crib, where the ears were dried and then ground into cornmeal. The village also owns several wagons and handcarts that the poorest settlers pushed to their new life. In the summer, a working blacksmith practices his trade near the oxen lift used to shoe the beasts of burden. Before exiting, take a peek inside the outhouse for a cheeky surprise.

Homesickness has an upside: authentic Hawaiian and Polynesian food thousands of miles from its roots. The founders of Sweet’s Hawaiian Grill are originally from Tonga (Mom, whose name is Sweet) and Samoa (Dad), and they lived in Hawaii before moving to Provo for law school. Missing the cuisine of the islands, they started serving plate lunches nearly 30 years ago. Their kids now run the show, but the classic meal has not changed much: two scoops of rice, a choice of macaroni salad or pineapple with li hing mui seasoning and one to four proteins – including kalbi ribs, katsu fried chicken, teriyaki barbecue chicken and kalua pig. The restaurant rotates its specials and themes, such as Saturday’s poke bowl. Beverages dive deeply into tropical flavors. Try the Otai, a Tongan smoothie with mango, coconut milk and ice, or an infused kava drink created by BYU students. Omai Crichton, the daughter often found behind the counter, also makes leis that she sells in an adjoining space. It’s the statement piece that says, “Aloha, Provo.”
What do you get when you combine Czech and Texan culinary influences? Czech-Tex? Nope, Hruska’s Kolaches. The Eastern European breakfast food arrived in Provo on the wings of three Texan siblings attending the university. The dough is based on a recipe from their grandmother, and the fillings are as bold and assertive as a Texan oilman. The sweet pastry resembles a Danish in appearance but not taste; the savory variety looks like a dinner roll with a bun in the oven. The teeny bakery with the pear-themed decor (“hruska” means “pear” in Czech) opens at 6:30 a.m. By the noonish closing time, only the tags describing the 24 flavors and two specials remain. On a weekday morning, empty trays mocked patrons for not arriving earlier. We missed out on la bomba carnitas; chocolate, peanut butter and banana nut; bacon, egg, cheese and jalapeno; and raspberry Nutella, to name a few. A few maple pecan and mixed berry remained, but the kolache clock was ticking.

Chef Mark Mason cooks what he knows — Native American and Southwestern dishes — and what he picked up from watching cooking shows on PBS. Before opening Black Sheep Cafe with his two sisters, Mason lived with his family on a Navajo reservation in Arizona and the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation in North Dakota. (The siblings have since sold the business, but Mason still holds the head-chef title.) That formative experience turns up in such dishes as hog jowl tacos on blue corn tortillas and Navajo tacos with green chile pork or red chile beef. The green chile also shows up on the frites and in a stew. All of the sauces and breads are made on-site, including the nanniskadi, which kicks the burger bun to the corner. The restaurant has a full bar with bottles of high- and low-alcohol beer, though who needs booze when cactus pear lemonade is in the house?
With more than 1,000 games, you could easily end up eating three square meals, plus snacks, at Good Move Cafe. The board game restaurant, which serves diners from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. on weeknights and till midnight on weekends, encourages eating while playing. If you’re stumped by all the choices, the staff is happy to recommend a dish (the Cowboy Burger, Meeples Mac and Cheese) and a game (Telestrations, Photosynthesis). If you dribble, say, gooey cheese from the Grilled Parcheesi onto the Sorry! board, don’t fret: “That’s why we have a budget to buy new games,” said Dave Moon, who owns the place with his son, Shawn. On Wednesday nights, the cafe holds tournaments, and you can take the Jenga Burger Challenge. Eat a stack of three burgers chosen off the menu to win a free burger for a future visit. Before opening wide, you might want to hit up the Hungry Hungry Hippos for some tips.

With the exception of ironing, if your preferred activity ends in “board,” you can satisfy all of your provisioning needs at Board of Provo. Founded in 2004, the shop specializes in skateboards, longboards, splitboards and snowboards. You can find all the big names in the industry, such as Burton, Capita, Volcom, RVCA and Emerica footwear, plus crucial hot-tub attire such as flip-flops and board shorts. John Hales and his wife, Ellis, practice what they sell and know the riding landscape well. After a morning on the slopes, John was bantering with customers while perusing a catalogue of hooded ninja suits by Airblaster. When I asked them for recommendations, they suggested the Provo Recreation Center’s skate park and the Provo River Parkway Trail for skateboarding and Sundance Mountain Resort for snowboarding. Then Ellis offered to suit me up.
When designing Shade Home and Garden, in nearby Orem, Todd Moyer looked across the Atlantic for ideas. The Utah native wanted to replicate the European garden centers he had toured with his English wife. He envisioned a pastoral escape from the city, where customers could leisurely shop for their window sills and front yards. Moyer describes the store’s aesthetic as “modern farmhouse,” assuming your barn is in the desert (cactus and succulents) or Kyoto (bonsai trees). In addition to fauna, the store carries decorative planters, straw baskets with pompoms and pillows with cactus designs. In the cooler months, a herd of goats turns the greenhouse into a yoga studio. The Goga Guys use treats to encourage Nigerian dwarf goats to climb on practitioners. That sound above you isn’t infinite consciousness but Tootsie and Butterfinger crunching on graham crackers.

The Shops at Riverwoods is home to some familiar faces, such as Williams-Sonoma, but ignore those. Instead, seek out the unfamiliar names. Lime Ricki, for one, is a swimwear company founded by three sisters from Utah. Their designs – fashionably high bikini bottoms, wrap fronts, Dalmatian spots – transform women of all body shapes and modesty levels into sirens. Katie Waltman learned to make jewelry from her grandmother while in high school. She opened the Provo store in 2014 to showcase the delicate pieces adorned with her signature flourish, feathery leaves. Pebbles and Twigs carries new and consignment pieces that will up the cozy factor of your house, and Heirloom Art & Co. peddles in small indulgences, such as an Arches National Park puzzle, a giant fly-shape swatter and bird call boxes. For your commitment to local retailers, reward yourself with a cocomel cookie from Suss Cookie Co., a riff on the Girl Scouts’ Samoa.
Open since 1980, Pioneer Book fills its two-level shop with used, signed and rare books, without a whiff of mustiness. The ground floor contains every category of literature except fiction, which dominates the stacks upstairs. For regional reading material, check out the books filed under “Western, Americana, Utah and Native American,” or the entire wall of Mormon nonfiction. Blue index cards designate customer and staff picks, and if you find your reviewer soul mate, congrats! (Mine are Tori and Black C.) The store runs an annual reading challenge – “book with red cover,” “book by an author born over 100 years ago,” “book with a strong female lead” – and the winners earn a $50 store credit. A backroom upstairs showcases local art and hosts folk music jams. As a warm-up before the show, go hang out in the “Music” section.

The family behind Aspenwood Manor created the Airbnb-esque accommodations with particular travelers in mind: Their guests do not need frequent housekeeping (once a week will do), a front desk (no keys, just door codes) or room service (full kitchen included; vending machine downstairs). The 20 luxury suites occupy two stately buildings near downtown and range in size from 220 square feet to 1,110 square feet. Each room is named and decorated after a destination close to the family’s heart. Waltzing Matilda, which has a secret passageway in the eaves, honors the clan’s patriarch, who grew up in Australia. Monocacy Estates, which comes with a built-in playhouse, gives a shout-out to Maryland, where the family previously resided. A daughter studied abroad in Austria, hence the Vienna room, a posh three-bedroom fit for a Habsburg. (Three-night minimum required for all rooms.)

The namesake of the Hines Mansion Bed & Breakfast worked in mining and real estate and as a pharmacist and saloonkeeper. His hard work paid off, as you will witness when you step inside the opulent Victorian manse dating to 1895. You might first notice the chandelier, a prop from “Gone With the Wind,” or smell the chocolate cookies cooling on the counter. All nine rooms feature jet tubs, and one (the Library) has a spiral staircase that leads to a soaker with skylight views. With such dreamy names as Victorian Rose and Secret Garden, I was hardly surprised to meet around the breakfast table newlyweds and a couple celebrating their fifth anniversary. I stayed in the Seaside Retreat, the original location of Spencer and Kitty Hines’ bathroom, but wished I had known about the Lodge room’s Butch Cassidy connection before booking. (The outlaw allegedly sneaked in through the door to evade the sheriff of Salt Lake City, whose cousin, a friend of Cassidy’s, owned the place.) Ghost stories are up to the guests’ imagination, but whenever an electric issue arises, innkeeper Michelle Schick will say, “Kitty, knock it off.” When the front door code didn’t work, I knew exactly who to blame.

I first spotted Robert Redford in the hallway leading to the Tree Room, one of five drinking and dining venues at Sundance Mountain Resort. He was cuddling a golden eagle, and I am pretty sure everyone who passed by the wall of photos wished they were that raptor. In 1969, the celebrity benefactor bought the Provo Canyon land that morphed into the year-round playground. Sports enthusiasts can ski and snowboard in the winter and then switch gears to hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding in the warmer months. The fire pits are seasonal, but the zip lines operate in all four. Most of the noncardio activities take place in the village, such as the Owl Bar, a watering hole that honors both Butch Cassidys (the real scofflaw and the Redford one), and the Art Studio, where artists teach guests to make pottery, jewelry, soap and other crafts. The General Store stocks their creations, as well as clothes, blankets, housewares and other goods that possess the Sundance spirit. As a souvenir, grab a free Sundance catalogue. Signs posted outside select locations ask guests to refrain from taking photos to protect the privacy of others, but the advisory does not mention asking for an autograph.

The Utah Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau’s walking tour covers more than 70 sites, including many in the Provo Downtown Historic District. Where do you start? No. 1, Provo Town Square, seems obvious, but I decided to begin with No. 71, because I am a sucker for sweets. Startup’s Candy still occupies the 1900 building that produced the country’s first filled candy and Magnolias, a forebear of the breath mint. The confectionery is open weekdays, one of the few places on the list with public access. (Most are private homes.) The LDS Tabernacle (No. 65) suffered fire damage 112 years after its dedication and was turned into a temple. Only Mormons with an ecclesiastical recommendation can enter the sacred space, but everyone can stroll the parklike grounds. On Center Street, the main strip for eating, shopping and entertainment, I supplemented my education with historic plaques. En route to the Soap Factory, I learned that Brigham Young set up his first school nearby. Most likely, the academy didn’t teach its students how to make soap in emoji and Star Wars shapes, but modern-day Provo will.

Standard Tandoori, Bearwood

We live in an age of elevated prices. Subscribe to our daily newsletter Sign Up Standard Tandoori, Bearwood
A decent burger and fries can cost £13 at a mediocre gastro pub, mains at half-decent restaurants come in at £25 – or more. So it’s refreshing to know there are still fabulous neighbourhood restaurants that punch above their weight and deliver big flavours for tiny prices.
Standard Tandoori, in Bearwood, is a family-run restaurant where people are allowed to take their own booze and where a varied menu is available at an absurdly low price. Standard Tandoori, Bearwood
My friend and I dined on a Thursday, taking advantage of a poppadom-starter-main-coffee deal for £10 each. Yes, £10.
That’s what you’d pay for a starter in one of Birmingham or Wolverhampton’s better Asian restaurants. We ate like kings, enjoyed exceptional service from two experienced and skilled front of house staff and left with full bellies. Bliss.
The Black Country and its hinterland might not be able to compete with Shropshire and Birmingham when it comes to gourmand dining. But there are diamonds in the rough and bargains to be found. Price conscious customers can enjoy the best of both worlds: feasting on exceptional cuisine without breaking into the overdraft.
Authentic flavours are available from experienced chefs who, in the case of Standard, have particular expertise in Bangladeshi and South Indian food. Standard Tandoori, Bearwood Advertising
Curry houses operate on the slenderest of margins. Those who deal with online takeaways find themselves shelling out a high percentage of their profits, while also paying delivery companies more – on many occasions, they make a small loss, rather than a profit, but feel the need to offer their food to keep up the competition.
And on cold midweek winter evenings, when there are fewer than 10 people in a dining room, the money spent on food would barely cover staff wages, the cost of ingredients, bills for gas and electricity and more besides. Yet staff at Standard are engaged and attentive, polite and welcoming. They provide service with a smile, showing efficiency and good humour from start to cheery end.
That’s not to say Standard is perfect. While service and food are excellent, the interior could do with a little attention. Dated wallpaper and old-fashioned furnishings leave it off the pace – though, in an age where money is tight and profits are even tighter, that’s perhaps not surprising. And, in truth, my friend and I warmed to the ‘homely’ feel of Standard. It was avowedly unpretentious and trading on decent food, high quality service and the best prices this side of cooking it yourself at home. Standard Tandoori, Bearwood Advertising
While we perused the evening’s selections, we ate two poppadoms each with a decent, thick and sweet mango chutney, a pleasant, herby onion salad and a mild and creamy minty yoghurt dip. The poppadoms were decent and the dips also good, particularly the mango.
We could have eaten our way around the menu – the choice was excellent, the prices highly competitive and the specials full of exotic promise and excitement. After much deliberation, we selected our starters.
He ate a chicken tikka shashlik, which featured tender marinated chunks of chicken cooked on skewers with pepper, onion and tomato. The flavours were subtle, a hint of fire rather than a burning inferno, and the delivery good. A small, simple salad accompanied the dish – I often think shredded lettuce, out of season tomatoes and lemon wedges are placed with dishes out of politeness, rather than necessity – and it made for pleasant eating. The chicken had been cooked with no little skill and was deliciously moist when brought to the table. Standard Tandoori, Bearwood
My starter was equally enjoyable. A chicken chat featured tender pieces of marinated chicken in a mildly spiced tomato-based sauce. It was enclosed in a small, fresh flat bread and served with a similar simple salad. The chat was fabulous. Too often restaurants kill a dish with too much oil, leaving a small slick on the plate when the dish is delivered. This was the opposite. Delicate and flavoursome, it ticked all of the flavour boxes and was a well-constructed starter.
We were in no rush for our mains; our starters had been served in generous portions and we were happy to take a short break. The two front of house staff made frequent visits to the table, making sure we were happy with what had gone before and topping up our drinks.
And then came the main event. I ate a brilliant sweet-hot-sour shatkora chicken, featuring lightly spiced tandoori chicken with sweet and sour Bangladeshi fruit. The chicken was masterful, the sauce terrific with hints of citrus and an almost-tamarind-like twang. It was served with light, fluffy pillau rice and I worked my way through it slowly, savouring each bite. Standard Tandoori, Bearwood
My friend was similarly impressed by his South Indian Garlic Chilli Lamb dish. The tender, curried stew had within it small pieces of green chilli that added a little heat while the lamb broke away under the fork. The sauce was deep, rich and satisfying while a side order of garlic naan was light, fluffy and provided the perfect tool with which to mop up the sauce.
We talked as we ate, enjoying the unhurried nature of the venue and taking our time to enjoy the food and welcoming ambience. The bill was next to nothing – a tenner each plus a little extra for drinks – and we called it a night. Standard Tandoori, Bearwood Standard Tandoori, Bearwood
Perhaps we don’t visit decent neighbourhood restaurants often enough, for Standard shows there is exceptionalism in the unlikeliest of surrounds. Though it is an unprepossessing venue with little to make it stand out from the crowd, within the unspectacular exterior there are great delights. The restaurant sticks to the basics and does those things really, really well. It makes its customers feel welcome and at ease, then dazzles with decent curries that typically cost £7. Bargain.
The only thing I couldn’t understand was the name. There’s nothing ‘standard’ about Standard Tandoori. It ought to be renamed Exceptional.

New food out coming to town centre

Indian food outlet is to open at Watford’s Intu shopping centre Show caption A new fast Indian food outlet is coming to Watford’s Intu shopping centre.
The new Indian style street ‘grab and go’ food called Wrapchic will be opening its doors tomorrow.
Wrapchic have flagship outlets in major sites across the UK including London, Birmingham, Bradford, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The product range at Watford will be the Wrapchic favourites, including the Naanchic, biryani with choices of chicken or vegetarian fillings and a new selection of classic Indian desserts, including Gulab Jamun, an Indian dessert often referred to as Indian doughnuts soaked in a rose flavoured sugar syrup.
Wrapchic was created by Mahesh Raikar in 2012.
Mr Raikar has 18 years of food industry experience behind him and launched the business as he wanted to make Indian cuisine available in to a bustling lunch time market.
After working for over two years on the idea, testing and retesting, designing and redesigning, he invested into opening the first Wrapchic in Birmingham City Centre.
He said: “All our core ingredients are prepared at a central location by our expert chefs in order to maintain product standards and authenticity. The ingredients are then delivered to our stores for final preparation.
“Our concept is unique in the quick serve food sector and brings something new and fresh to the high street. Our existing outlets are doing extremely well in terms of footfall and profitability. The public have really taken to the concept of healthy, fresh, tasty, Indian food served in a burrito.”
Intu Watford general manager Vicki Costello said: “We’re delighted to welcome Wrapchic to the centre as it will give our shoppers even more exciting and diverse choice when visiting. The food looks extremely tasty and fresh and I look forward to sampling some of their food for myself over the coming weeks.”

Would definitely suggest ! Extremely good for the price

We were stunned by the quality of the room for the price offered !! It was my first visit to Phuket and managed to find this hotel with very good ratings and feedback from my fellow reviewers in Trip Advisor. I wanted the hotel to be perfect as it was the first time I was traveling with barely-an-year-old kid and wasn’t sure how my stay here would affect him. The Hotel e-mail ID found in their website is active and you would get a prompt response in 24 hours; this helped ease my stress on the booking confirmations. The first impression was made here even before I checked-in. Check-In is at 2pm but were allowed to check-in early as we arrived early by an hour. We were offered a room facing the rear (or rather the side of the building) considering the kid and the peace he would need at nights; indeed it was peaceful. No noise from the road gets one a sound sleep. They have 2 buildings, beside eachother; one housing the reception lobby and the other without. We stayed at Room.401, a standard king bedroom, in the building beside the one with reception lobby * The rooms have an attached balcony * Very roomy, perfect ambiance in white and wood * Split AC * Instant Hot water geyser * Very clean, should appreciate the house-keeping guys * Bathroom accessories (soaps, shampoos, clean towels) * Soft Bed and a warm quilt ensures a good sleep with the AC ON * TV with international channels subscribed * 2 Bottles of drinking water, 2 coffee-sugar-milk whitener sachets everyday * Mini-refrigerator, Kettle and hair-dryer * Courteous receptionists and staff who spoke decent English (which was good enough for us to communicate) * Continental Breakfast at the ground floor with a nominal price * No cash or passport deposit required at check-in * laundry services available The cons, though these are not worth deducting points, * House keeping mostly end up knocking to the room for service in the afternoons when we were asleep. Shouldn’t be a problem if you have headed out. Preferably hang the do-not-disturb outside the door if you are planning to stay back in the room or plan to have a siesta. * No toothbrush and toothpaste, but wouldn’t crib about that for the other services provided. The room is less than 20 mins walk from Bangla Road, Patong Beach and Jungceylon Mall. It is within 10-15 mins walk-range to Banzaan Night Market, Malin Plaza, Dragon Market where all the shopping can be done and delicacies savoured. Also it is close to the line up of Massage Parlors where a good Thai Foot Massage can be enjoyed with a very good price. Indian, Thai, French, Italian, Egyptian, Continental cuisine restaurants are all around and food shouldn’t be a problem for anyone staying here. I would stay in this same Hotel when I plan my next visit to Phuket. Thanks Breezotel for making my stay comfortable !!
