Swirlberry froyo hits A2



Plum Market sells Swirlberry in its coffeeshop in four- and ten-ounce servings, toppings extra. (Consumer alert: the putative four-ounce serving is really close to eight ounces--a good value, but it can throw off your diet).

Swirlberry, 209 S. State. 222-1707. Sun.-Thurs. noon-10 p.m., Fri. & Sat. noon-11 p.m.

Weng's Kitchen becomes Maple Gardens

Weng's Kitchen, a small, homey Chinese restaurant in the Miller-Maple Plaza, quietly became Maple Gardens Chinese Restaurant a few months ago. New owner Sam Lin says the Wengs wanted to retire. Lin had worked for several years at a Chinese restaurant in Canton and wanted to own his own place. Lin brought some of his favorite recipes with him. "New dish you must try! Crispy Chicken in Yummy Sauce," advises a sign in the window. (It's deep-fried chicken bits that are sauteed a second time in a sweet lemony brown sauce, like a subtler, toned-down sweet-and-sour.) Lin, like Weng's, delivers, though he says it's been a challenge, because he's still new to the area. He's game if you are.

Maple Gardens, 1506 N. Maple (Miller-Maple Plaza). 669-8889. Mon.-Thurs. 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 10:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m., Sun 4-10 p.m.
