What makes Trader Joe ‘s so special? After all, Katy has a zillion stores that sell groceries and other supplies.
What does make Trader Joe’s unique is its merchandise, prices and quality. Many everyday items are sold under the Trader Joe’s logo, which offers their customers access to high end products at great values!
Known as Pronto Markets in 1958 and later as Trader Joe’s since 1967, employees don Hawaiian style shirts and ring a bell when they need assistance. Ten to fifteen new products are introduced each week and the same number are eliminated. The innovative 12,500 square foot store set to be located at 2643 Commercial Center Boulevard, will be a wonderful addition to the Katy area in 2014.
If you are itching to try something different to eat in Katy, go to Kenzo Sushi Bistro located at 23501 Cinco Ranch Boulevard in the the La Centera shopping center. This elegant restaurant features Asian Fusion and Sushi Zen cuisine. Our group ordered several items including the Miso Soup, the House Salad, the Kobe Beef Mini Burger with Potato Wedges, the Teriyaki Chicken, the Bulgogi, and the Hot Stone Bibimbab. All were delicious, however the most unique was the Hot Stone Bibimbab. This dish is served in a steaming hot volcanic bowl that contains rice, vegetables, beef, and an egg on top of it all. Hot sauce for you to add, is served on the side. As you are eating, the hot bowl continues to toast the rice, creating a crunchy crust. Give it a try!
We previously posted about all of the great new additions coming to La Centerra. Now, Bonefish Grill will be celebrating their grand opening Charity Night with an evening of fabulous food, wine, spirits and fundraising with 100 percent of the evening’s proceeds to benefit the Katy Visual and Performing Arts Center.
A $35 donation provides 2 drinks and a full tasting of the menu. RSVP is required as only a limited amount of seats are available.
