News Nugget – Coming Soon

Susan says…

The former Wing World and WV Hot Dog Heaven location in Hurricane is going through some changes.  The WV Hot Dog Blog didn’t agree with the claim, rating their so-called heavenly hot dogs with only 2.5 weenies.  Did Chris James’ poor review contribute to the demise of the restaurant?

I am guessing that the new place, Cheese Steak 101, will be serving hot subs, including a Philly cheese steak.   

Pita: The Other White Bread

Has anyone else noticed what’s happening in the former Schlotzsky’s building in Kanawha City?  There is a sign for a Pita Pit coming soon.  Is that the national chain, Pita Pit, of which there is a location in Huntington already?

I like the nutritional information on the Pita Pit website.  You can “build your own pita” with the fillings, toppings and extras of your choice.  I found out that the Chicken Souvlaki on wheat has 582 calories.   And, by utilizing my superior logic and mathemtical skills, the tzatziki sauce has 100 calories.  Yep, I can do without that. 

Doomed Location?

The Charleston Gazette has reported that Little India will give it a go in the ever-changing Firehouse location on Washington Street East.  Owners Harish and Meena Anada also have the International Grocery in Kanawha City and a store in Morgantown.  

Indian food within walking distance from my work?  Be still my heart!  Opening is scheduled for August 14.  

Shaken, Not Stirred

The same Gazette article notes that South Hills Market and Cafe has obtained a permit from the Board of Zoning Appeals to serve mixed drinks in addition to current beer and wine offerings.  Just when I thought that place couldn’t get any better…

If you follow SHMC on Facebook, you’ll receive daily updates of the lunch special and the soup of the day.

Coming Soon

Piro Pizzeria will be coming soon to the Shops at Kanawha, formerly known as the Kanawha Mall.  

Teays Valley will soon be home to another Mexican eatery, El Rancho Grande.  They will be occupying the former Schlotzsky’s space near the Kroger at the Teays Valley/Winfield exit. 

It is lucky for them that the Schlotzsky’s sign just so happens to be in the colors of the Mexican flag.

A google search turned up another El Rancho Grande in Beckley.  I wonder if there is a connection other than a common name?

Tomahawk’s Tuesday Special

Recently, Ron and I enjoyed an afternoon on the deck at Tomahawk’s in South Charleston amid the boaters that docked for a bite and the bikers that rode in for a rest.
