Phoenix Restaurants on the D-List — April 2019 | Phoenix New Times

EXPAND Filiberto’s shows up on this month’s D-List. Charles Barth April Restaurant D-List: Tree Trunks Aren’t Cutting Boards Lauren Cusimano | May 8, 2019 | 6:00am Facebook Twitter email Print Article A A Every week, the county’s health inspectors within Maricopa County Environmental Services give restaurants grades after completing inspections. Participation in the rating system, however, is voluntary, which means owners or managers do not have to accept a grade after an inspection; instead, the restaurants are listed online as “not participating.” And in some cases, grades posted online may change, which typically means a restaurant has provided necessary documentation for food safety or fixed a critical issue that led to a low grade. Here’s a more detailed explanation of last month’s report, which resulted in 22 restaurants landing on the D-List.

Dosa Hut restaurant chain opens first Gold Coast store in Molendinar

Staff Reporter | 7 May 2019 Dosa Hut restaurant chain opens first Gold Coast store in Molendinar
Melbourne-based restaurant chain Dosa Hut have opened their first Gold Coast store after securing space at a convenience centre located in a central part of the region.
The chain will occupy a 165 square metre tenancy at Crestwood Plaza in Molendinar after signing a five-year lease with options in a deal negotiated by Tanaka Jabangwe, Knight Frank’s Associate Director of Retail Leasing.
Jabangwe said Dosa Hut had been looking for the right opportunity to open a store in the growing Gold Coast region for some time before leasing the Crestwood Plaza space.
“The tenant had been wanting to establish a presence on the Gold Coast for some time but was looking for the right space and this Molendinar shopfront ticked all the boxes,” he said.
“Dosa Hut were seeking a central location in a suburban catchment with ease of access to major road networks, and Crestwood Plaza fit the bill on every aspect.
“The convenience centre is situated on Olsen Avenue, which is a very busy thoroughfare with plenty of traffic passing estimated at circa 57,000 cars daily, which offered great exposure for the restaurant.”
Dosa Hut, which serves south Indian cuisine, already operates 19 restaurants across Victoria, New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory and Queensland, but the Molendinar restaurant is the first for the Gold Coast.
“Crestwood Plaza offered a perceived geographical centre to service both the northern catchment and parts of southern Gold Coast with ease,” a spokesperson said.
“We are confident in our food and believe the Gold Coast will appreciate the quality, authentic Indian food we have on offer.”
Located in the heart of a major Gold Coast growth district in Molendinar, Crestwood Plaza convenience centre fronts the booming Crestwood Heights residential estate, is adjacent to Bunnings Warehouse and opposite Griffith University’s future development land.
The centre features over 190 car parks, a full line Supa IGA as anchor tenant and 17 other specialty stores.
With limited vacancies remaining in Crestwood Plaza, Knight Frank are currently seeking interest from additional food and beverage establishments, health and fitness groups, allied health and/or medical.
Jabangwe said the Gold Coast retail market continued to be largely driven by demand from local and interstate food and beverage operators.
“After the Commonwealth Games we’ve seen an increase in enquiry from established operators seeking high profile positions across the city,” he said.
“There has also been an increase in Asian cuisine offerings and national chains in strategic shopping centre positions particularly through the northern suburbs of the Gold Coast.
“High-end food and beverage offerings have predominantly been focused around the traditional premium precincts of Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach with a surge in demand for southern Gold Coast positions between Mermaid Beach through to Palm Beach, but there is also plenty of demand from other operators for other suburban areas of the Gold Coast.
“The suburban catchment offers a less seasonal serviceable population as it alleviates the predominant dependence on tourism spend as perceived in areas such as Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach.
“Dosa Hut believe local community engagement is paramount to their success and this was one of the key reasons why the first store had to be in a central suburban area.”

2019’s must-see hotspots for your travel consideration

Features
A quarter of 2019 has passed and yet seat sales to various flight destinations keep on coming. And we say yes, seat sales are always welcome.
But where should we go and what should we do? Preferably somewhere new, exciting, and not many people in the Philippines have Instagrammed.
Here are seven travel destination suggestions we think you might love. Most are in Asia, and some are a little bit outside of it. But nevertheless, each destination carries something special and we hope you’ll think so, too!
Vietnam
Hội An is a port city that is rich in history. It is also known as a UNESCO-protected “Ancient Town,” but Hội An is not just for knowledge culture. Beach resorts also abound, allowing visitors to enjoy both nature and history. And then there’s the food, which reflects Hội An’s history of trading spices.
Aside from Hội An, another place worth visiting is the Golden Bridge of Sun World Ba Na Hills, which can be found at Trường Sơn Mountains of Da Nang in central Vietnam. The Golden Bridge is THE place that launched more than a thousand photos on Instagram. And it’s easy to see why. Golden Bridge is so breathtakingly picturesque. It’s a grand bridge set against the backdrop of a vast and verdant hillside held by two giant stonehands.
Special events are also set to put Vietnam on everyone’s must-visit list in the coming years, such as the government’s plan to host Vietnam’s first Formula One Grand Prix race in 2020.
India
When we hear India, we often think of spicy Indian food, men in turban, and Bollywood. For those of us who enjoy watching Bollywood movies, a trip to Mumbai to experience the city’s creative energy is worth considering. And Mumbai not only has the film, it also has the food.
In the past, there was a fierce battle between Delhi and Mumbai’s cuisine, but now it has been put to rest, with Mumbai declared as the capital of good food. It is said out of 50 top restaurants in India, 14 can be found in Mumbai.
If that’s not enough reason to seriously consider visiting India, perhaps it would interest you to know that 2019 marks the 150 th birthday of Gandhi, which means that this year is a historic point in time for India. But if you have no idea who Gandhi is, well, there’s Google for that…
China
Can we do Chengdu? Perhaps we can. This city has been cosmopolitan since ancient times, having been located at the Silk Road. Its people are known to be laidback and global. And the city’s major draw are its giant pandas and its delicious hotpot.
But what sets Chengdu apart from other Chinese cities is its openness to the LGBTQ+ community. The LGBTQ+ community is quite colorful and visible there that any member of the LGBTQ+ is sure to find some sort of rainbow connection.
Culture also abounds Chengdu, in particular, the trailblazing and bordering-on-the unconventional side of contemporary Chinese culture. The Eastern Suburb Memory Complex, for example, features some of the best fashion and art in China. China’s vibrant tattoo culture can also be found here as artists in this city also tend to double as tattooists. The target market for these tattoos are the millennials who strut their inked skins along Tai Koo Li luxury shopping hub, making this place a space for living art as well.
Chile
If you’re into stars and skies and all those romantic things, you might want to put Chile on your must-see list. On the 2 nd day of July, eclipse chasers in-the-know will flock to Elqui Valley for the total solar eclipse. Because it lacks artificial light, Elqui Valley was hailed as an International Dark Sky Sanctuary—the world’s first. Moreover, this is also the favorite place of scientists and stargazers as the valley houses a good number of observatories.
Nature lovers will also enjoy Elqui Valley’s nature trails and global quality wines. Another must-try is the pisco , said to be Chile’s “national spirit.” You can have a taste at Elqui Valley’s various distilleries.
United Arab Emirates
You’ve already heard of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, but probably not Sharjah. Sharjah, which is slowly but steadily being hailed as an international arts and culture hub, is a small emirate where some of the UAE’s heritage buildings can be seen in all its well-preserved glory. It also houses world-class museums such as the Sharjah Art Foundation. Other points of interest include the Sharjah Biennial and the Sharjah Architecture Triennial. So, if you ever find yourself roaming Dubai, why don’t you make a detour to Sharjah? By taxi, it’ll take you around 25 minutes to get there. But if you’re trying to save, you can also take an hour or so bus ride to Sharjah.
Augmented and virtual attractions
Last but not least in our list is… augmented attractions. Armchair travel has been upgraded from sci-fi to smartphone. During my time (and yes, I may be inadvertently revealing my age here), armchair travel meant sitting on the most comfortable chair ever, holding a TV remote control on one hand and chips or whatever food on the other, and flipping channels, as if you’re hopping from one destination to the next.
Augmented reality (AR) gives us as a super enhanced experience of reality by way of superimposing digital information from our perspective through the help of a smartphone. Choose from a number of apps which give almost-real and jaw-dropping 360-degree content. All you need is your smartphone and you can start traveling to your heart’s content. If you have a virtual reality (VR) headset, you can take that route, too. Through AR and VR, you can visit places and luxurious hotels you’ve always dreamed of—all within the comfort of your home.

Quick And Easy Chicken Chop Suey

Image by kakyusei via Pixabay.com 8 oz boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces 1 tbsp corn starch paste (equal parts cornflour and water) 3 tbsp soy sauce 1 tbsp brown sugar (optional) 1 tsp mirin (rice wine) Vegetables 1 bell pepper, sliced or diced 1 onion, sliced 2 tbsp ginger, finely shredded 4 oz bean sprouts 3 baby carrots, thinly sliced lengthwise Miscellaneous 1 tsp sesame seed oil Rice 4 cups white or brown rice – others are optional 8 cups water Preparation: Place your chicken in a bowl, pour the mirin, soy sauce, and brown sugar over it, and stir well. This mixture is your marinade. We like to add a little sweetness to our dish to offset the saltiness of the soy sauce and other ingredients. However, you don’t have to have sugar. Allow the chicken to marinate for about 20 minutes. Heat your wok to about 400 degrees, the optimal temperature for doing any kind of stir fry dish because it’s hot enough to cook vegetables quickly without making them mushy. If you can’t get an exact temperature, put the stove on high. Once the pan or wok is hot enough, pour in the oil and let it get warm. Next, drop your onions and peppers into the wok, stirring them frequently and turning them, so they cook evenly throughout. Pay close attention and carefully poke at the vegetables with tongs or something similar to make sure they’re firm to the touch. Wait for about one minute. These vegetables are the thickest and take longest to cook. Next, you’ll add smaller vegetables like the green onions, bean sprouts, and carrots and allow them to cook for one minute. This provides the same amount of cooking for the smaller, thinner slices, so they’re at the same level of doneness as the larger pieces. Image by schaedlich via Pixabay.com After your vegetables are cooked, remove them from the wok and set them aside for now. Put your cornstarch into the chicken marinade mixture. This helps to thicken the otherwise-runny sauce, so it doesn’t turn into soup. Part of the appeal of chop suey is its simplicity and relative cleanliness, from which a soupy consistency would detract Pour the chicken marinade into the wok and heat until the mixture starts to boil. At this point, the chicken should be cooked through, but you should always check. If you can see any pink inside the meat, it’s not done and needs to cook more. Uncooked poultry carries harmful bacteria like salmonella and E. coli even more than other types of meat. The cooking process for the chicken should take about 6 minutes at high heat. At this point, you can return the vegetables to the wok, and add the cornstarch mixture. Heat the wok and stir the mixture until it’s fully combined and boiling. Add sesame oil for flavor. While you’re cooking the chicken chop suey main portion, you can also work on the white or brown rice. It depends on your taste. Brown rice is arguably healthier, but white rice is more filling. Take a large pot (at least 4 quarts), and pour the water into it. Heat it to a rolling boil and add the rice. Stir frequently so the rice doesn’t stick. You can add butter or oil for flavor, but you should also add a pinch of salt and pepper. The salt helps water boil faster, as well as absorb into the rice. Continue stirring. Then, turn the stove eye to a simmer setting and cover the pot. The steam from the boiling water, provided you have a secure cover, has the same effect as using a dedicated rice cooker that you’d find in a Chinese restaurant. Image by Hans via Pixabay.com If you want your rice to be a little crispier, you can fry it instead. Here’s how to make a good pan of fried rice. Just as a note, it’s better to use brown rice for this part of the dish, but you can use white long-grained rice so it holds its shape better. After cooking the rice, wait for it to become cool to the touch. Put about 2 tablespoons of oil into your rice skillet and heat. Drop the rice into the container and whisk until it is lightly browned all the way through. You can add other vegetables like peas or sprouts, but you don’t have to. Vegetables are already part of the main dish of chicken chop suey, and you don’t want to overpower the meat. After you have your rice, chicken, and vegetables cooked, combine them. You can then serve the chicken chop suey course over a bed of rice. If you’ve prepared everything according to the recipe, the dish should need no further seasoning. However, some palates require different flavors, and you can add more soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, or even hot sauce. Tips for Safety and Efficiency Image by JESHOOTS-com via Pixabay.com Keep all your ingredients on hand and measured out before you start cooking. Nothing can ruin a dinner plan faster than starting a recipe and realizing you’ve forgotten a critical ingredient. Keep your work area clean and use different utensils for cutting different foods. You don’t want to cut your vegetables with the same knife you use to cut chicken. Not only do you need a different blade, but you also run the risk of cross-contamination. Even after cooking, if you aren’t careful, you can transfer bacteria into your food with improperly-cleaned utensils or vessels. Speaking of knives, keep your knives sharp. It doesn’t take much force to cut chicken and vegetables. A dull knife, though, is far more dangerous to you than a sharp one because a dull knife requires more force to use. More force means less control and more chance of cutting yourself. Learn to multitask. The best way to make a meal quickly is to have multiple courses cooking at the same time. While your rice is boiling, for example, make preparations on your vegetables, or vice versa. Don’t wait for one part of your meal to get done before starting the next. This wastes time and lets your food get cold or mushy. Keeping Healthy Image by stevepb via Pixabay.com The two biggest changes you can make to the recipe for health are to use low-sodium soy sauce and to switch to olive oil instead of vegetable oil . Olive oil has a high enough smoke point, as well as containing many critical vitamins and minerals. Vitamin C is chief among these. Just make sure that you’re not using extra-virgin olive oil because its smoke point isn’t high enough to use for stir fry. The smoke point is the temperature at which oil starts to burn. When cooking oil breaks down, it can produce chemicals that are harmful to you when ingested. Facts About Chop Suey Chop suey isn’t an authentic Chinese dish. It was supposedly created by Chinese-American immigrants who used the ingredients and materials they had available. At least, this is one account. Some people claim it’s a traditional dish dating to the Qing dynasty, or simply that it was a dish thrown together from leftover ingredients in California mining camps. Final Thoughts If you make chop suey, don’t feel like you have to confine yourself to the ingredients listed here. If you want to add other vegetables or take some out, it’s your decision. Just remember to start cooking thicker vegetables first, then add smaller ones. Rice can similarly vary. You could even add a flair of Indian cuisine to the dish by using saffron rice and spices. The beauty of chop suey is its versatility. All you need are meat, vegetables, and an optional base of grain, and you have a meal fit for the whole family.
