Tuesday or not, we all can all appreciate a good taco. These Moo Shu Turkey Tacos with Hoisin Sauce are the the perfect fusion masterpieces to leave Chipotle in the dust. Taking reference from a Chinese recipe, traditionally made with pork, we’re giving turkey the Moo Shu treatment by tossing it with scallions, eggs, and seasonings and rolling it all up in warm flour tortillas for the taco finish it deserves.

Let’s face it, we can never decide between pizza and burgers and honestly, we shouldn’t have to! That’s why our culinary team cooked up our Pizza Burger & Oven Fries with Tomato Dipping Sauce. Served with gooey fontina cheese and a robust tomato sauce, this burger brings you the best of both worlds.

Get geeked about Greek with our Grass-Fed Beef Gyro Pita with Romaine Salad & Garlic Sauce. This dish instantly transports you to a Greek taverna where you can practically feel the mist of the Mediterranean on your skin. Lemon zest and garlic bring grass-fed ground beef to life, while crispy romaine and cucumbers deliver on a much needed crunch. All topped on warm pita for a better wrap than even Jay-Z can deliver.
