Boricua Soul to Open at American Tobacco Campus Eager to Serve Up “New Ideas and New Flavors”

Boricua Soul to Open at American Tobacco Campus Eager to Serve Up “New Ideas and New Flavors”

Boricua Soul , one of the first businesses to occupy American Tobacco’s popular PopUp @ ATC space, is taking its experience to the big leagues and opening its first ever brick and mortar restaurant. The eatery is expected to debut by August with 1,800 SF in the Crowe Lobby and will open up to the campus lawn via foldable doors, allowing for patio seating.
Tastemakers Toriano and Serena Fredericks — who, previous to their pop-up experience, ran Boricua Soul as a much-in-demand food truck — will transform restaurant space in the Crowe Building. There, they’ll continue to serve up their acclaimed take on Puerto Rican dishes enhanced with exciting twists developed around West African, Native Indian and European ingredients and techniques that came to Puerto Rico and the American South as a result of the African slave trade.
In addition to a full lunch and dinner menu, Boricua Soul will also welcome music, poetry and other live performances to a stage that will be programmed year round.

“We are so excited to be working with American Tobacco to bring our restaurant dream to life,” says Serena. “With a comfortable space designed to share delicious food amongst family and friends while you experience live performances in a world-class setting like the campus, I believe we’re creating a restaurant that will become a home for repeat customers.”
American Tobacco has been working with Boricua Soul since their successful run in the PopUp space in September 2018 to develop an exciting offering unlike anything in the city.
Adds Toriano, “Puerto Rican and cuisine in the American South are both unique and so familiar. We hope the spin that has created legions of fans to our food truck will continue to delight new customers as well as pay homage to the family members who taught us everything we know about both delicious cuisines.”
The restaurant is the first in a series of announcements that bring to life the revisioning of American Tobacco’s restaurant and retail offerings created in partnership between teams from the campus and global leader CBRE.
“Boricua Soul represents a commitment to seek out and support the best and brightest restaurateurs and entrepreneurs for the limited spaces we have on a campus that welcomes 4,000 daily workers and residents and more than 1.3 million annual visitors,” says Adam Klein, chief strategist, Capitol Broadcasting Company. “Tori and Serena are incredible leaders in the Durham community who make this city remarkable. We’re diligently working to bring new flavors, new ideas and new opportunities to not only the campus but to Downtown Durham.”
Boricua Soul will take up approximately 1,800 sf. The space will feature a stage and large foldable window door to open the restaurant to the campus.

Where to Find the Best Vegetarian and Vegan Burgers in Beijing

Where to Find the Best Vegetarian and Vegan Burgers in Beijing Where to Find the Best Vegetarian and Vegan Burgers in Beijing Robynne Tindall | Jul 5, 2019 5:55 pm | Add a comment | 101 reads Whether you’re a long-time vegan or just dabbling with plant-based dining, you’ll have no beef with these vegetarian and vegan burgers in Beijing. Note: We have tried to mark whether each burger is vegetarian or vegan but if you’re on a strict diet (and want to, for example, make sure that the cheese used doesn’t include rennet) it’s best to check with the restaurant before you dine. Arrow Factory : Double Smeesh Seitan Burger, RMB 64 (vegan) Arrow Factory are big champions of plant-based cuisine, coming out with plenty of creative dishes in recent years. This burger combines seitan, a type of vital wheat gluten, with chickpeas and black beans for a full slate of protein, dietary fiber, and vitamins and minerals. The “smeesh” in the name refers to their vegan melted cheese, which creates a nicely messy eating experience just like a dairy cheeseburger. This isn’t even Arrow Factory’s only vegetarian burger: we’re also big fans of their ‘Pulled Jack’ which is made with jackfruit, and so meaty it’s been known to fool avowed carnivores. Cannon’s : Cauliflower Veggie Burger, RMB 42 (vegetarian) Cannon’s have plenty of creative burger options on their menu, including this meat-free number, which features a thick slice of deep-fried cauliflower dressed in spicy Buffalo-style sauce, with lettuce, tomato, and all the usual trimmings. Great Leap Brewing : Eggplant Zucchini Parmesan, RMB 45 (vegetarian) Some (probably many) would argue that this is a sandwich, not a burger but it’s so delicious that we’re throwing it in anyway. Thick slices of breaded, fried eggplant and zucchini are stuffed into a baguette spread with pesto, mayo, and lashings of marinara sauce. Ask for extra napkins. Home Plate : Black Bean Burger With Honey Mustard, Home Plate BBQ, RMB 45 (vegetarian, can request vegan) Home Plate is known for its many meaty offerings but vegetarians aren’t left out either thanks to this hearty black bean burger. Black beans are packed with protein, so you definitely won’t be hungry after this one (especially if you get a side of french fries and Carolina vinegar slaw). Ask if you want to have the burger made vegan. Jing-A: “Where’s the Meat?” Burger, RMB 50 (vegetarian) (pictured at top) Jing-A’s take on a veggie burger (recently revamped by new chef Simone Thompson) features a meaty portobello mushroom, smoked tofu, American cheese, and plenty of their secret recipe special burger sauce. We also love the sour and slightly spicy house pickles that are served alongside. Lush : Tofu Burger, RMB 45 (vegetarian, can request vegan) Wudaokou stalwart Lush offers a range of hearty burgers to soak up their plentiful booze, including their veggie tofu burger, which comes topped with sautéed mushrooms and your choice of ranch or barbecue sauce. Side Street : Hutong Hipster, RMB 48 (vegan) Side Street’s menu is an eclectic mix of Indian-inspired bar food, including their two meat-free burgers. The vegan Hutong Hipster features a potato and spinach patty paired with a combination of tamarind chutney and spicy mint chutney. Or try the vegetarian Country Roads (RMB 58), one of the only burgers in Beijing made out of paneer. Additionally, starting Jul 11, Side Street will be offering 20 percent off veggie/vegan dishes every Thursday. Slow Boat : Dongsi Doufu, RMB 45 (vegetarian) Slow Boat offers a few veggie and vegan burger options but we’re particular fans of the classic Dongsi Doufu, which has been a menu favorite for several years now. Even if you think you don’t like tofu, you’ll love this crisply-fried smoked tofu patty with its topping of spicy sriracha-honey aioli. Note that all veg burgers are buy-one-get-one-free at both Slow Boat locations every Monday (with purchase of any drink). Veggie Table : Mushroom Burger, RMB 68 (vegan) Plant-based burgers often play on some variety of beans or pulses but long-time veggie stalwart The Veggie Table change things up a bit with a burger made primarily of savory shiitake mushrooms. The burger is served in a wholewheat bun to give it a bit of extra heft. Zerogo: Avocado Tofu Burger, RMB 68 (vegan) Avocado fans will love Wangjing restaurant Zerogo’s signature burger, which comes stacked with half a perfectly ripe avocado on top of a breaded patty made of tofu, whereas the cheese-free “cheese” sauce made entirely from cashews flavored with lemon and miso adds a nice umami element to proceedings.

Black Orleans Restaurant

There’s not one city in America; I would say the world but, there’s no place other than New Orleans that dishes up some to the best cuisine than New Orleans. My city is a big ole flavorful pot of gumbo infused by different cultures such as African American, Native American, Caribbean, French, Spaniard, and Italians. But in my eyes Everything began with a group of American Indians who welcomed the French shortly after 1700, American Indians contributed corn and local shellfish, while Spaniards brought larger fish and the first European food preservation and preparation methods. In 1767, Spaniards adding their cuisine, which was influenced by the Moors incursions to Spain during the Crusades. Spaniards brought Islenos Africans from the Canary Islands who settled in St Bernard District. Other African slaves arrived from the Caribbean who further developed okra, kale, rice, sugar and peanut growing methods on nearby plantations. Some became slave cooks or earned their freedom as independent caterers. This activity led to Gumbo and Jambalaya, among others. The French returned to control the land by 1800 before selling it in the 1803 Louisiana Purchase to the United States. If only briefly, the French reasserted their preference for the aristocratic presentation of excellent food and a taste for desserts. Those delightful pralines sure taste like an African cook’s response to a French sweet tooth. Many free African cooks lived in the backyards of French Quarter homeowners, while slave cooks and independent caterers tended to many Garden District aristocrats of the 1800s and early 1900s. Italians arrived in the 1890s, bringing their gastronomic culture and imported sausage, fruit & vegetables to the mix. The tasty Muffaletta cold-cut sandwich of lettuce, tomato, sausage, and spices is a welcome result. As the African American presence grew in the 1900s, their influence played a more significant role in Creole cuisine and the emerging hybrid known today as Creole-Soul Food. And today I’m showcasin some New Orleans Restaurants that are owned by African Americans some from New Orleans and some not. I now wonder if my faves are based on eating from the pot made by a New Orleanian… Is it New Orleans cuisine if it’s not cooked by a New Orleanian? What if the chef is from New York, but he or she is cooking in a restaurant and following New Orleans recipes? The things that make you go h .

More fun for the kids at the Trampoline Park
In times when outdoor spaces are shrinking, here is one that is “The biggest trampoline Park in South India,” according to Mukund R, Marketing head of FunzXtreme, a company that is owned by Chennai-based Praveen Mani and Karthikeyan VLS.
The area is huge covering 30, 000 sq feet and it took six months to complete the project. “We started the work in January and imported all the rides from China,” says Mukund. And the real exciting bit is at the 6,500 sq ft that is devoted to a giant trampoline. It is not only for kids, assures Mukund who says even adults can have a lot of fun here. “We are very particular about hygiene and we will be provide socks for the users. They are also designed to give additional grip on the trampoline surface,”he says. Precautions have been taken to ensure its safety in accordance with international standards. These include protective nets and cushioned pillars.
Mukund strongly recommends the Sticky Walls. “Those who wish to try this will wear a velcro jacket and throw themselves at the wall. Their jackets will stick to the walls and they will have to exert some pressure to free themselves,’he laughs. Info you can use The trampoline park is equipped with nursing and changing rooms Open on all days from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm At FunzXtreme (FX), 207, Mettupalayam Rd, Abirami Nagar, Koundampalayam 6379799533 for details
Besides hours of trampoline fun, the park also offers 19 video games, dashing car arena, table soccer, snooker, play station and a soft play area for kids. The latter is fashioned like a castle with cushioned walls and floor. It is perfectly safe for children as young as three, he says. A food court serves Indian, Chinese and Continental cuisines. “We make everything fresh in the kitchen. There is also a party hall that can be rented for free. We will only charge for the rides and food. The maximum number of people that we can accommodate there is 200,” he explains and says, “We will soon add a hockey and a football turf in the compound.” SUBSCRIBE TO OUR DAILY NEWSLETTER Submit

Use Low-Cal, Weight-Loss-Friendly Lettuce As Cups To Make Interesting And Healthy Snacks

An interesting way to consume lettuce is by making a snack meal out of ‘lettuce cups’ Neha Grover | Updated: July 03, 2019 18:47 IST Weight loss-friendly snacks: Lettuce cups Highlights Lettuce is a low-cal, low-fat vegetable Iceberg lettuce can be used to interesting snacks Lettuce leaves are used as cups and filled with a mixture of your choice
A hefty burger looks pretty and tastes delicious because of layers of foods that come together to make it a fetching meal. Lettuce is an intrinsic part of a quintessential burger, which not only adds a bright green colour to the burger but also ups its nutritional quotient. In fact, not just burger, lettuce is also used in many other healthy meals like salads, sandwiches and tacos. Lettuce is one of the healthiest vegetables available but sadly, its popularity hasn’t really taken off in Indian cuisine. Barring a few meals, lettuce is hardly used as a regular ingredient in our meals. Lettuce deserves far better with its weight-loss-friendly properties and should be included in the diet of those who want to shed kilos in a healthy way. Lettuce Health Benefits –
A per the United States Department of Agriculture data, a 100 gm portion of lettuce contains only 15 calories. Its water content is as high as that of a cucumber. Lettuce contains zero cholesterol and fats (saturated and unsaturated). With all these qualities, the low-cal, zero-cholesterol lettuce leaves should be included in our weight loss diet.
An interesting way to consume lettuce is by making a snack meal out of ‘lettuce cups’. For this, iceberg lettuce is used that looks like our desi cabbage. This also has layers of lettuce leaves enclosed and grouped in a ball formation. Each leaf can be used as a cup and topped with a mixture of your choice. Minced chicken can be combined with onions, carrots and other herbs and spices. For a vegetarian option, cottage cheese with capsicum, onions and tomatoes can be used as a topping. The options are endless. Due to lettuce’s neutral taste, it can go with a number of other foods, herbs and spices. Lettuce cups can be topped with any filling of your choice How To Make Lettuce Cups
Step 1 – Cut off the bottom part of the stem of the iceberg lettuce.
Step 2 – Strike the knife inside the centre of the iceberg lettuce and remove the whole stem.
Step 3 – Remove the topmost layer of the iceberg lettuce and soak the ball of leaves in a pan full of water, and gently remove and separate the leaves. If you try to pull away leaves off a dry iceberg, they might just tear apart.
Step 5 – Keep the leaves on a bed of absorbent tissues and let them dry.
Step 6 – Once dry, freeze the leaves till they are crispy and sturdy enough to hold the topping.
Step 7 – Scoop the filling into each cup, dress it with coriander or thyme leaves, and serve.
(Also Read: Hazelnut Asian Lettuce Cup Recipe )
The lettuce cups can replace unhealthy tacos, tortillas, bread or pizza base and make for a super healthy base for your snacks. Also, the bite-sized meals look so pretty that you and your guests will be tempted to lift and gobble them instantly.

Studley Castle Hotel Review – Warner Short Breaks

We were invited to Studley Castle Hotel in exchange for this review.
As we turned onto the drive away of Studley Castle, nothing could have prepared us for what lay ahead. As we took the bend onto the tree lined avenue the beautiful Studley Castle Hotel stood proudly in the distance beckoning us to join her for our planned short break in Warwickshire.
It was a breathtaking moment, as it looked like we were about to step into a fairy tale and as you can imagine, we couldn’t wait to start the story. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited about getting inside a hotel as I was on this particular Friday afternoon. The Hotel Arrival
We were met at the end of the drive and given instructions to take our bags to the porter, who would then take them to our room. We then drove to the car park and headed to the hotel reception. We were greeted with glasses of prosecco and unicorn heads proudly mounted on the wall. Our eyes were literally everywhere.
Taking a few steps further we entered the hotel foyer and the theme of the decor became abundantly clear. Studley Castle was giving a very proud and elaborate nod to the story of Alice in Wonderland. The flamboyant wallpaper and the luxurious furnishing really set the scene for the entire hotel stay. We were stepping into a magical adult fairy tale, in the most tasteful fashion of course, and the promise of a fun and relaxing short break was the theme of our story. Our Hotel Room
The first port of call was of course our hotel room. We couldn’t wait to experience the Studley Castle accommodation and we certainly weren’t disappointed. We had a ground floor hotel room which was perfectly appointed for a luxury hotel stay. The turquoise colour scheme blended together beautifully and the local finishes were on point. I completely fell in love with the bespoke lampshade printed with a historical map of Studley Castle. The framed prints on the wall were very well chosen to compliment the room also.
As well as 2 incredibly comfortable beds, a spacious bathroom and a good sized dressing table, we also had 2 very comfortable chairs and a coffee table. At the far side of the room there was also patio doors opening out onto the rear of the grounds at Studley Castle. Think rolling fields, bleating sheep and beautiful sunsets. It all confirmed what we already thought we knew. We really were in for a wonderful stay. Dining at Studley Castle Hotel
There are two restaurants at Studley Castle, and I had the pleasure of eating at both. The Market Kitchen in the Evesham Restaurant serves a lovely selection of freshly cooked food. Whilst it is self service this definitely isn’t a buffet. Fresh fish is cooked to order, there’s also a carvery and a speciality station. During our stay the themes were Indian and French cuisine.
The starters are served to the table by the waiter, who also looked after our drinks. Our waiter was lovely, and so were the chefs. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and it was clear they were all committed to help everyone enjoy their short break at this newly opened Warner Leisure Hotel.
I tried the fresh fish and the French dishes and both were equally delicious. There is a wide variety of meal options including salads, freshly cooked vegetables, breads, cheeses etc. The Pudding Shop is also a real treat with a revolving ice cream dispenser packed with a huge choice of flavours and a wide selection of hand crafted desserts. The difficulty is choosing which one to pick, but of course if your really struggling you can always have two!
Breakfast is also served in the Evesham Restaurant, and you will receive the same freshly cooked service again including haddock and poached eggs, Eggs Benedict and of course a full english if that’s how you like to start your day.
The Arden Cafe Bar and Restaurant is where you can enjoy your food bought to your table if that is what you prefer. I stopped here for lunch and I very much enjoyed both the setting and the food. Things to do at Studley Castle
There are so many things to do at Studley Castle which makes it a great choice for people who want to try something new, explore the local area, or sit back and relax. You can cycle around the grounds and local area on the locally made Pashley bikes available to borrow. You can also book activities like rifle shooting, archery and laser clay pigeon shooting.
All the hotel activities available at Studley Castle are included in the price of their short breaks. You can book as many as you would like to take part in, and I can vouch for the fact you will have very helpful instructors and a lot of fun.
We tried out rifle shooting and it was actually a lot more fun than I thought it would be. I even hit the target, which took me completely by surprise!
I must not forget to tell you about The Stables Spa at Studley Castle either. I was really looking forward to visiting here as we’ve been to the spa at the Thoresby Hall Hotel several times. The service and the setting are just incredible.
The pool and jacuzzi over look the front of Studley Castle and this section is all windows so you have a completely uninterrupted view of the castle grounds. You could actually be forgiven for thinking that you were outside for a second. I can imagine this will look beautiful in all seasons, and especially magical if Studley Castle receives any snow at Christmas. There are even hotel rooms in The Stable Spa so if you know this is going to be a big feature in your stay here, I’d suggest you book one of those for your short break.
There’s a steam room, sauna, and gym at the Stables Spa. You can also book a variety of beauty treatments (for an additional cost) and treat yourself to a lovely massage or facial with one of their lovely therapists. I can wholeheartedly recommend adding a beauty treatment to your stay if you are really wanting to make the most of your experience at Studley Hall. Exploring Stratford upon Avon and other Local Attractions
Short breaks are the perfect opportunity to explore somewhere new and Warner Leisure love to help their guests get out and about. At Studley Castle you can catch the hotel bus on Tuesdays and Saturdays which will take you and collect your from Stratford Upon Avon. Bearing in mind parking in this popular tourist location can be very difficult, this service is aimed to help customers explore the local area, hassle free.
They also offer visits to the local gin distillery, rather aptly named the Shakespeare Distillery or if beer is more your thing you can take a tour to the Purity Brewery Company. You can also take a day trip to Warwick Castle or to explore the beautiful Cotswolds.
We visited the Shakespeare Distillery for the morning, and it really was a fantastic experience. We were given a talk about the history of gin and how the Shakespeare Distillery (and other craft producers) came into being.
Even if you are not particularly a fan of gin I think everyone will find this interesting. The owners of Shakespeare Distillery are incredibly knowledgable both about the history of gin and of course how to make it. If you do like gin, of course you get to sample the delicious drinks that Shakespeare Distillery make also. Entertainment at Studley Castle Hotel
One of the things Warners short breaks are famous for is their brilliant entertainment program. On the weekend we visited we were treated to some wonderful live musical acts including the gorgeous Cassidy Janson.
On Saturday night we headed out onto the garden terrace for cocktails and to enjoy what happened to be the longest day and official start of summer. The sun was shining, the atmosphere was relaxed and the weather was great. If you thought it couldn’t get any better, we were then treated to stilt walkers and some incredible live circus entertainment. The party atmosphere really had arrived.
We then headed into the Evesham Restaurant for dinner to enjoy a live set from Cassidy. Her voice filled the room, and it was a very big room I can tell you, with soulful classics like Natural Women.
Several live musical acts followed introduced by famous Radio 1 and Radio 2 DJ, Jo Whiley. The fun and entertainment continued on into the late evening when Jo Whiley carried on entertaining us with her favourite dance floor tracks for those who wanted to put their dancing shoes on. Why we Recommend Studley Castle
Studley Castle Hotel opened to the public in March this year so you probably won’t find many hotel reviews online about it at the moment. Please do not let that stop you booking a stay here, as Studley Castle really does offer a phenomenal short break experience to help you unwind and recharge the batteries.
Everything from the arrival, the well thought out decor and incredible food will help you enjoy your stay here. Studley Castle has undergone a very impressive restoration costing Warner Leisure around £50 million. The castle itself has been thoughtfully restored to its former glory, and so has the surrounding buildings. New sections have also been added, but I think you will agree that they only enhance what was already there.
I suspect also that you will fall in love with Studley Castle’s charm just as much as we did. The grounds are beautiful and perfect for an evening stroll, or a stroll at any time of day really. You can also walk easily into the nearby nearby village or pick up the bridal path to the local church if you want to go a little further afield.
It was the features inside that I really loved, with so many charming details like the rabbit’s pocket watch, peacocks at the piano and grass seats. There are so many little things to fall in love and you will throughly enjoy seeking them out. I should probably write a Studley Castle scavenger hunt and see how many you find.
