Mojo's Pints and Pies

I had the opportunity to try a couple slices of Mojo’s cheese pizza at Razorbash, and it was delicious.  The crust is different in a good way.  This place is definitely on our to do list the next time we are on Garland near the University of Arkansas campus.

Mellow Mushroom

When we stopped into the Mellow Mushroom in Rogers last Friday night, we were not prepared for the 30 minute wait.  So we decided to come back another time.  As it happened, my wife and I found ourselves in that vicinity again later in the week, with schedules so busy that there was no time to cook.  At 4 in the afternoon, it is much easier to find a seat. The walls are filled with gold records, and there is a sign in one corner designating the area a playground.  It’s hard to make sense of the mixed signals the atmosphere is creating.  So our hope for the food is not high.  Neither of us has ever been to a Mellow Mushroom before.  Little did we know that this would be a thoroughly pleasant local food adventure.

Orange Leaf

Orange Leaf self-serve frozen yogurt stores seem to be popping up all over the Midwest.  I saw an Iowa friend mention one on Facebook a couple weeks ago, and since then I have seen them in Joplin and Fayetteville.  The other day, I spied one on familiar ground near the Starbucks on Pleasant Grove Road in Rogers.  The woman behind the counter said they had only been open 10 days.

Ozark Natural Foods Postcript

We won a bag of food at the Owner's Day Appreciation Weekend which I wrote about on here last month!  Look at some of the cool stuff they stuffed into our bag:  Hain's Carrot Chips, Field Day Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce, Woodstock Kosher Dill Pickles (organic), Blue Diamond Almond Nut Thins, Dr. McDougall's Miso Ramen, Choice Rooibos tea, back to Nature Classic Creme Cookies (already gone--yum), and Field Day Cheese Ravioli.

Green Bean

Green Bean Rogers
If you’ve haven’t heard about a trendy little natural foods lunch spot in Rogers called Green Bean, then you’re one of the few.  I read an Internet review a few months ago that made it sound like a well kept secret amongst the chosen few. So when I am on my way to the airport for business one day, I decide to drop in for a quick bite.  I know it is in the Village on the Creeks mall, near the Village Athletic Club.  When I arrive the line extends to the back of the store near the restrooms.  Luckily I have my iPhone.  I decide to Google the menu while I wait.  The copyright on the menu says 2006.  Has this place really been here that long?
