Serving the American Dream

Here's the story of a young Son Bui who came to the United States from Vietnam. He labored at menial jobs, went to school, learned English and worked his way up. Before opening Son's Bakery & CafÉ, he was the head baker at Tanque Verde Guest Ranch. A reader said he makes the best cheese-steak sandwiches and delectable pastries. Located at 5683 E. Speedway Blvd. in the Big 5 Center. 885-0806.

Finding Your Comfort Level

Comfort food is still popular, especially at the bar at Terra Cotta CafÉ during the daily happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m. Settle down for $2 draft beers and $4 margaritas with lobster mac and cheese, tomato soup and a crust-less grilled cheese sandwich, or roast turkey and stuffing from $6-$7. Now, that's comfortable. 3500 East Sunrise Drive. 577-8100.


What goes around comes around. Initiating the former '70s craze, the Melting Pot is a fondue kind of place while Keaton's, a Metro restaurant, has been newly transformed into the Old Pueblo Grille. Both at the Foothills Mall.

Jazzy Champagne Brunch

Westward Look's Gold Room offers an all-you-can-feast Sunday brunch in a four-star atmosphere with eggs Benedict, Belgian waffles, sushi, smoked seafood, grilled vegetables, grilled salmon with cayenne butter, mustard-crusted prime rib of beef, fresh baked rolls, French pastries and truffles; but that's just the tip of the ice sculpture. $29.50 per person. Children under age 12 are half price. Seating from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Reservations recommended. Call 297-1151 ext. 413.

True or False

Rumors abound but what's the real dish? Will an Albertson's and/or a Claim Jumper really go into El Con Mall? Is a super Trader Joe's replacing Wild Oats' vacated space on Sunrise? What restaurants are going into the downtown train depot? Noshing wants to know...
