Reveri: Your New Weakness

When’s the last time you finished a pint of ice cream and said to yourself, “I feel AMAZING”? If it was a pint of Reveri, you would say it every time we guarantee it.

Reveri is a game-changing plant-based alternative to ice cream that ends the trade-off between luscious taste and health.

Crafted from whole fruits and even some vegetables, Reveri delivers the sweet taste and rich mouthful of super-premium ice cream, yet it contains no dairy, added sugar, or fats and averages only 82 calories for a 4-ounce serving.

It’s SO delicious that you are going to want to eat the whole pint. Go ahead. After all, it’s just whole real food!

Reveri comes in four different flavors: Vanilla Almond Blossom, Chocolate Forest, Purple Chip Mint, and Strawberry Patch,

You can blend Reveri into your morning smoothie, scoop it into a breakfast bowl, present it as a palate cleanser, serve it in crystal bowls after dinner, and then guiltlessly enjoy it from the carton as a midnight snack!

Here are just a few descriptions of what to expect from each flavor.

Vanilla Almond Blossom: drift into an almond’s lover dream where roasted almonds, almond butter, and almond extract bled beautifully with creamy rich vanilla to create the delicate sweet flavor of marzipan.

Chocolate Forest: a Belgian dark chocolate treat is such a rich, unexpected indulgence you won’t believe it’s NOT ice cream. They get the sweetness from whole dates, the creaminess from avocado and the crunch from raw cocoa nibs. Loaded with good stuff, it’s the chocolate dessert of your wildest dreams.

Purple Chip Mint: reach the peak of peppermint pleasure with their fresh twist on mint chip. Blended with blueberries, nutritious seeds, organic cocoa nibs, and the tingliest peppermint they could find to create this lovely purple treat.

Strawberry Patch: They created this strawberry treat without using dairy or added sugarm yet it’ is smooth and luscious like ice cream. Bursting with sweetness and flavor from strawberries and dates, and with a subtle touch of cashews, you’ll fall in love with this dreamy indulgence.

 

 

THAI DISHES

By: Vaughn Lowery

About 24 years ago, Tom Wynter moved from Thailand to America with a dream to open his own commercial enterprise. He started working at Thai Dishes restaurant, the old location. And moved on to a California Pizza Kitchen location for almost a decade and became a licensed bartender where he functioned at a popular bar in Hollywood. After becoming managerial staff at various establishments, he begins to act in tandem with Thai Dishes in Santa Monica when it was located on 2nd Street. The owners decided to call it quits as the rental for their location was coming up for renewal. Wynter decided to extend the legacy of this authentic Thailand franchise and discovered a vacancy at 123 Broadway in Santa Monica which fulfilled his imagination – a restaurant with a bar and patio which mimicked the likes of cafes in Paris. This time around he wanted to make sure that his restaurant had all of the key ingredients which he really felt engaged him as a patron – great food and drinks with a decor to match.

Soon After, Thai Dishes on Broadway was born. An unassuming and unpretentious venue which would be perfect for a quick drink/bite or a spot where you celebrate your birthday. Wynter obviously struck gold being a half block away from Ocean Boulevard, the newly renovated mall and the last stop on the Expo Line. For this area, everything is moderately priced and holds all the right offerings for a romantic date or simply a place to recharge your batteries while you people watch in the sidewalk seating. The ambiance is stellar: mosaic tiling near bar, warm fall colors, bespoke wall paper, faux ostrich wrapped table tops and unique Thai ornaments sprinkled throughout. The most sought after menu items include: BBQ pork over rice, spicy green bean tofu, roasted duck over rice and red curry chicken (presentation is very reminiscent of an authentic Thai dining experience).

Specialty handcrafted cocktails like their Mai Thai cocktails made with Thai whiskey will keep you coming back, but customer service contributed by his general manager, Leila Regalado, is a key component to TDOB’s success. She will have you seated within seconds and constantly will check in to see if you require anything else. If her smile isn’t enticing enough, serving size, happy hour specials and bottomless mimosas on Saturday/Sunday from 12 to 3 pm) should reel you back in.

Wynter asserts, “I’m constantly checking on the quality of food that comes out our kitchen and my staff sometimes needs me during holidays and weekends, which leaves little or no time for a life outside of this place.”

THAAI DISHES SQUARE

One thing’s for sure, Tom Wynter and all of his personal sacrifices have made Thai Dishes On Broadway a slam dunk within the Santa Monica Pier/Downtown area.
