Wine of the Week: A $20 Aussie Shiraz That Scored 90 Points for $13

IMG_20140819_180318by Andrew Chalk

What a bargain. A wine that scored 90 points out of 100 in the prestigious Wine Advocate (placing it in the top 5% of wines tasted) for $19.98 is rare enough indeed, but the Lakewood wine store with the wacko name, The Wine Therapist, is discounting it to $12.99 for a limited time.

2010 Mr. Riggs ‘The Gaffer’ Shiraz, McLaren Vale, Australia

The special price is the one that they offered at a store tasting two Saturdays back. They sold out. The reason for the resumption of the tasting price is that they just managed to secure new supplies from the distributor.  Continue reading

Lazaranda Means Incredible Fish In Crave Language

by Steven Doyle

Getting Your Indian Fix At Chaat Cafe

by Steven Doyle

Chaat Café  is billed as a fresh and casual Indian fast food restaurant, but there is absolutely no resemblance to what you might consider fast food. The food is served in the same relative time as any other restaurant, and is hand-made to order with precision and care. The concept is a national chain, but each location has a local flair. Since Irving has a tremendous Indian population, it is very popular with the locals.

The menu at Chaat is fairly extensive with a full line of chaat, or Indian nibbles such as Pani Puri (crisp shells stuffed with potatoes and garbanzo beans) or a variety of Pakora and Samosas.
