Restaurant Roundup: Free bundtlets and bread, Winter Wonderland treats, Fernson’s hard seltzer

Nov. 14, 2019

Nothing Bundt Cakes is giving away free confetti bundtlets starting at 11:15 a.m. Friday for National Bundt Day. The bakery on the east side of the Western Mall has 160 cakes ready to go. The first 22 people in line – limit one per household — also will receive a punch card good for one free bundtlet per month for a year.

Falls Overlook Cafe by Stensland will be switching soon to Winter Wonderland hours, but there’s still time to enjoy lunch  or treats. Through Nov. 21, the cafe on the east side of Falls Park is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday. After that, the cafe will serve ice cream, treats, warm drinks, soup and other items from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday through Sunday for people who are stopping down to see the holiday lights at Falls Park. The cafe will be closed Jan. 2 through March but will continue to host private events during those months. The site can seat up to 100.

Candy Cloud Factory has new drinks just in time for the kickoff to Winter Wonderland at Falls Park. The cotton candy shop at The Cascade on North Phillips Avenue has created Coffee Clouds and Hot Chocolate Clouds. The staff suspends a “cloud” of cotton candy above the hot drink and the steam melts the treat into the drink, creating a “unique, sweet taste.” Take your pick of cotton candy flavor, but the recommended choices are Birthday Cake or the newest option, Winter Frost, which is a peppermint flavor.

Poppy’s Popcorn Co. at 41st and Spring has added cotton candy. A larger bag for $5.99 has a combination of five flavors: vanilla, blue raspberry, key lime, grape and strawberry. A smaller bag for $2.99 has a mix of vanilla and blue raspberry. Custom-made bags also can be ordered with a week’s notice.

Fernson Brewing Co. has expanded its offerings to include a hard seltzer. It’s on tap at Fernson Downtown. The batch that was just released has no added flavor but gains a “natural, subtle lemon-lime flavor during fermentation.” It’s about 95 calories and has no sugar. It’s also the brewery’s first gluten-free option. Try it plain or as a seltzer-based cocktail inspired by an Aperol Spritz, Moscow Mule or Paloma.

Fernson also is starting monthly tours and tastings at the north-side brewery, but the first event is sold out. December’s Saturday date hasn’t been picked yet.

Lupulin Brewing Co. is hosting a Scribbled Lines Showcase on Friday and Saturday. Scribbled Lines is Lupulin’s collection of sour beers. From 3 to 8 p.m. Friday, the brewers from the home base in Big Lake, Minn., will be at the brewery on Shirley Avenue to tap Waking the Grapevine, Festa Alla Fragola, Fugacity No. 2 and Sour IPA. From noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, they’ll pour Star Damage, Pantalon Rouge and Fugacity No. 1. Get the details on the brews by clicking here.

If you’re a fan of dark beers, you might want to try the Dark as Night Flight at the Miner Brewing Co. and Prairie Berry Winery Taproom on the south side of the Western Mall. The $10 featured flight includes six dark and seasonal beers.

Want to try the People’s Choice Award winner from last week’s Taste of Sioux Falls fundraiser for SculptureWalk? Make this your lunch plan for Friday. M.B. Haskett Delicatessen defeated 14 other downtown food and drink establishments with jianbing, a Chinese street food crepe. It’s this week’s lunch special, available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The crepe is filled with egg, cilantro, green onion, pickled radish, crispy wonton, black bean hoisin sauce and chili sauce.

Get a free loaf of bread starting at 10 a.m. Nov. 21 as part of the fourth annual Kindness First event, a partnership between Breadsmith and The First National Bank in Sioux Falls. Stop by any of the four Breadsmith locations to get a free loaf until 2 p.m. or while supplies last.

22Ten Kitchen Cocktails has several new menu items. For dinner, the restaurant at 69th and Western has added steaks. Options include a 6-ounce filet, 8-ounce top sirloin and a 6-ounce hanger steak. Each is paired with a different side dish. There’s also a 16-ounce porterhouse pork chop, cedar plank salmon, scallops with a butternut squash ravioli and a lamb shank. New lunch options include two salads: the Squash Cornucopia and Curried Tuna. New sandwiches include a mahi-mahi banh mi, a curried lamb burger and a new house burger with buffalo, lingonberries, bleu cheese, onion frites, arugula and bacon aioli on a house-made English muffin.

Bread & Circus Sandwich Kitchen has added box lunch catering as an option for meetings and gatherings. There are five sandwich choices. Two salad options come in either individual or family-size portions. Give the downtown restaurant 24 hours’ notice. The lunches can be picked up or delivered.

Urban Chislic near 85th and Minnesota is starting a new feature: Monday Smash Burger Nights. Get a basic burger and fries for $5 or try one of three theme burgers for $8: Chipotle Smokehouse, Extreme Mushroom & Swiss or Urban Island. Customers also can create their own burger with the restaurant’s homemade sauces and rubs.

Subway has joined the slider kick with four small sandwiches for $1.89. Offerings include Ham and Jack, Italian Spice, Little Cheesesteak and Little Turkey. They come on telera, which is a Mexican soft flat roll often used to make tortas.

Eat Fit Go has new menu items in the coolers. New salad choices are Mediterranean and roasted pear and spiced almond. Additional flavors for Gogo Bites are mocha and pumpkin spice. For new bowls, there’s the turkey egg roll and Korean bibimbap. New entrees are traditional turkey dinner and barbecue chicken. The prepared meal business is at 57th and Louise.

Shahi Palace is offering a free lunch for veterans and active-duty military through Sunday. The Indian restaurant at 2527 S. Shirley Ave. serves lunch from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

A quick note for shrimp fans: Endless Shrimp ends Sunday at Red Lobster.

Twisted Sisters Sweets, a home-based bakery for cookies and cakes, has a fun Thanksgiving gift box. Get eight cookies that look like slices of pumpkin pie for $20. The business also has a variety box of a dozen Thanksgiving-themed cookies for $30.
