Restaurant Roundup: Blossoming Tea, fried ribs, lots of ways to eat for free

Aug. 1, 2019

Oh My Cupcakes has introduced another new product as its 10th anniversary nears. Blossoming Tea is a tea service for one to four people offered daily in the two bakeries. Choose from three varieties: Berry Blossom, Rose Blossom or Green Blossom. Servers bring a glass teapot to the table, and customers watch as the tea steeps and reveals the blossom. The bakery describes the fragrance as divine and hopes that customers enjoy the “slowly savored experience” along with a gourmet cupcake.

Coffea Roasterie is celebrating its 10th anniversary with free drip coffee at all three locations Friday. The coffee house also has a special roast it’s calling Decade Blend, and all retail bags of beans will be 10 percent off all weekend.

Dakota Snow/Sub Zero Desserts will be serving free shaved ice downtown Friday as part of the #KindnessFirst campaign from The First National Bank in Sioux Falls. The treats will be available starting at 4:30 p.m. in front of the bank at Ninth & Phillips.

As part of another #KindnessFirst campaign, there will be a free outdoor picnic Monday night at Someday Cafe in Baltic. Chef Mike Frerichs is making pulled pork sandwiches, and they’ll be served with chips, ice cream and soda or water. The meal will be served beginning at 5 p.m. and will be free for the first 100 guests. Tables will be set up between the café and The First National Bank’s branch.

A&W Restaurant is celebrating National Root Beer Float Day with free floats Tuesday. Donations are encouraged to support the Disabled American Veterans organization. The restaurant at 3401 E. 10th St. includes a KFC franchise and recently remodeled inside and out. It’s having a grand re-opening ribbon cutting at 10:30 a.m. that day. Other specials that day include buy one A&W or KFC meal and get one at half-price, and 10 pieces of KFC dark meat for $10.

Swamp Daddy’s Cajun Kitchen might be the first in Sioux Falls to offer deep-fried ribs. Get three pork ribs with jambalaya and your choice of side. Del’Inkka Beaudion, co-owner of the restaurant in the Jones421 Building downtown said it’s a secret family recipe.

The new OG Greens, also in the Jones421 Building downtown, has added meal-prep packages. Customers can order one-, three- or five-day meals that feature organic ingredients. There are breakfast, lunch and dinner options, and the meals can be delivered or picked up at the restaurant or Cuong Strong’s gym on Marion Road near 12th Street. OG Greens can customize the meals to meet specific dietary requirements.

Nick’s Hamburger Shop will be in Sioux Falls on Friday selling singles and doubles from its mobile unit. The Brookings restaurant will be serving from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Dawley Farm Village. Find it in the parking lot of First Bank & Trust and Coffea Roasterie (remember the free coffee!). It’s the final of Nick’s three appearances at this season’s Food Truck Fridays.

If you like the lunch buffet at Himalayan Indian Cuisine, you’ve only got a few more days to enjoy it. The restaurant at 5310 E. Arrowhead Parkway will drop its lunch hours starting Tuesday – and it’s closed Mondays. New hours will be 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Customers can order from the menu for dine-in or carryout.

Other new hours to note:

  • Gravel Road Blend in Harrisburg’s 518 Marketplace has new summer hours: 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday. In addition to shorter days, it dropped Sunday hours.
  • Wine Time on Main has dropped Sunday hours so that it can offer more training opportunities for staff members and host additional private parties. The wine bar downtown offers drink discounts for private events.
