Over the past year one of our favorite Elite experiences, the Elite Week, has become more popular than ever. Due to the flexibility, eagerness of business owners, and their adaptiveness to health and safety measures, the Columbus Elite Squad has had the opportunity to try several great restaurants around the city. From delicious Greek food and smoothie bowls, to bubble tea and tacos, one things is for certain. The Elite week experience, is here to stay.
Keep scrolling to read what Columbus Elites had to say about Cinco Tacos, The Brewed Leaf, and hot new business Playa Bowls.
Playa Bowls is a hot, new smoothie shop on High St. and in June Elites were invited to swing by for a Playa bowl of their choice. While tasting a variety of their açaí creations, Elites took a ton of great photos, showing off the businesses fun, beachy vibes. Yelp Elite Mel T. said, “The staff greeted me as soon as I walked in and gave me the breakdown of each bowl. They even let me try the different bases of the bowls, but personally I would say that the açaí is the best. Upon suggestion, I went with the Nutella bowl, but substituted the coconut flakes with kiwi. The bowl was huge and delicious!” Read more reviews and scroll through the vibrant photos here.
In May, Elites celebrated Asian Pacific Islander Heritage month by venturing off to Asian-owned business The Brewed Leaf. Guests were invited to try one of their refreshing and flavorful teas, which included unique toppings like sweet cream and creative ingredients like boba and wild rice. Yelp Elite Woolie T. wrote, “Stopped by today right around opening hours and got their Oolong Tea with Seal Salt Cheese Cream at full sugar and full ice levels. So, so, so good. So good that I got one for tomorrow too.” Read more reviews here.
Next up, Columbus Elites chowed down on tacos, sopes, and quesadillas at Latinx-owned restaurant Cinco Tacos downtown. Cinco Tacos is owned by Francisco Garcia and Napoleon Cuevas who love being able to share authentic recipes from their hometown of Toluca, Mexico. Yelp Elite Dan. W said, “I had the chorizo quesadilla with grilled onions, grilled peppers, lettuce, cheese and salsa rosa. The quesadilla was perfect. The crunch of the quesadilla, the flavor of the chorizo and the toppings were fantastic.” Continue reading reviews about this Elite experience here.
