Doki Doki Opens
Rolled ice cream is starting to take off in a big way, and new eateries offering the tasty spirals of frozen goodness are finding ways to present them with something unexpected. At Doki Doki (249 E. 400 South, 385-229-4339, facebook.com/dokidessert), which celebrated its grand opening at the tail end of February, they're rolling up their ice cream inside sweet Japanese crêpes. To drink, Doki Doki serves different cream teas, along with boba tea for those who like their beverages to have a bit of texture. Beat the summer rush and get there now.
St. George Farmers Market Call for Vendors
The Downtown Farmers Market at Ancestor Square (2 W. St. George Blvd., farmersmarketdowntown.com) in St. George is seeking local vendors. The market officially kicks off May 12, and will be open every Saturday through Oct. 27. Like its sister event in downtown Salt Lake City, the St. George market is looking for any area growers, craftspeople or other vendors who create their goods with locally sourced ingredients. The market is also accepting volunteer applications—any interested parties can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
$12 Lunch Specials at Current
Current Fish and Oyster Executive Chef Alan Brines has been busy implementing a few new specials to complement their weekday lunch menu. Brines is bringing back the popular chicken and waffle with its white cheddar and green onion waffle and jalapeño maple syrup, along with a cauliflower sandwich and a roasted pork sandwich. Be sure to pair your dozen-dollar lunch specials with one of Current's day drinks like the Brown Derby loaded with honey, grapefruit and bourbon, or the Antoinette with vodka, elderflower, grapefruit, lime, rhubarb bitters and sparkling wine. Not a bad way to spend a lunch hour.
