Craving some Asian pastries, but don’t feel like driving all the way to Chino Hills to go to the
85°C Bakery Cafe?
Then simply head to
Uncle Chuang’s Bakery in Riverside’s University Village.
The bakery opened late last year, but we finally got around to stopping by today to check it out.
The big question is: Will there be any Star Wars-themed cupcakes?
That’s because, Sunday,
May 4, is the date for the second annual Inland Empire Cupcake Fair, at which yours truly will again be a judge.
The event will take place from noon to 4 p.m. (with V.I.P. admission at 11 a.m.) at the newly-revamped Riverside Convention Center, 3637 Fifth St.
I.E. Shine On, note that they have learned much from last year’s event and things should run a lot more smoothly this year.
Shakey’s Pizza Parlor has decided to give its fans a little break tomorrow (January 21).
The pizzeria has
posted a “Fan Appreciation” coupon for its famous Bunch of Lunch on its Twitter feed.
Coupon-holders will receive the all-you-can-eat meal for just $5.99 (with the purchase of a regular-sized beverage), a savings of $2 off the current price of $7.99.
Feed Me 411 has teamed up with Riverside’s Pita Mediterranean Grill and New York Deli (formerly Innabi… remember when they used to have a Redlands location?) to offer a coupon for a free falafel sandwich.
The offer is limited to the first 500 takers, so don’t delay!
here for the coupon, which you can either print the coupon or display it on your mobile device.
Pita Mediterranean Grill and New York Deli is at
16810 Van Buren Blvd., Suite 102.
Forty-five years ago this Friday (January 10), the first
Old Spaghetti Factory opened in Portland.
The restaurant chain is celebrating that anniversary with a contest and special prices.
On Monday and Tuesday (January 13 and 14), as well as January 20 and 21, complete meals will be available for just $4 and $5.
As announced earlier this year, Riverside’s
Phood on Main served its final meals last month.
Owners Marla Cohen and Lyn Cloninger’s
side business with a PG-13 name has taken off, and the duo has shut down the restaurant to focus on manufacturing and distributing their line of spices, which we’ll just call SSS for short.
Phood on Main, 3737 Main St., Suite 100, had been in downtown Riverside for seven years.
here for a farewell message, as posted on Facebook.
Since they’ve apparently been shut out of the L.A. County Fair, the only place locally to find the Yucaipa-based Gingerbread Shop is at downtown Riverside’s Festival of Lights, where they’ve parked for at least the last three years.
The pink A-frame is apparently an offshoot of a bakery at Santa’s Village and for a time was a fixture at the Inland Center in San Bernardino.
The shop serves up delicious desserts, including cinnamon rolls, apple crisp, and yes, gingerbread cake and gingerbread men, as well as hot beverages.
