My Secret is Out: Mai Thai in Arksarben Village

I’m not going to lie, I’m a bit disappointed in Mai Tai. No, it’s not because of the quality of food or the service provided, but because they took my secret favorite spot and let the rest of Omaha know about it. I used to love going to the Mai Tai location out west – it has less than 10 tables and was my hole in the wall place for true authentic Thai food. However, now, it seems that I have to share my love of Mai Tai with the rest of Omaha because they have opened a larger, second location in Aksarben Village and people are talking and loving it the same way I do. Luckily, the larger location allows for short or no wait times and the food is just as enjoyable at their original location....

In Search of Holiday Desserts

If your holidays are anything like mine, you’re scrambling around too much to worry about lovingly crafting the perfect baked goods in your own kitchen. Not that I’m knocking those people who have the ability to fashion fondant into festive shapes – quite to the contrary, I am really glad those people are around. I’m just not one of them. This is why I am glad that there are so many great places around town selling tasty holiday desserts.

I set out to find the best places to buy holiday desserts with these three caveats:

* The desserts have to be delicious. Really, without this factor, what else matters?

* The desserts have to be quick to purchase – I don’t want to go on a waiting...

Drizzles Bakery: Home of the Donut


You may have driven past Drizzles Bakery and not even have noticed it. On the outskirts of Bellevue’s Old Towne area, Drizzles is a tiny bakery that you might blink and miss. Here is a word to the wise: don’t blink and miss this place. This is an exceptional bakery.

More than once I’d been asked by people if I had yet visited “that small bakery in Bellevue.” Had I known there was such a thing as a baked banana donut with chai frosting sprinkled in chocolate I would have visited Drizzles much sooner, but I suppose it’s better late than never.

Owner Mary Pat Guerrier opened Drizzles in June 2012. She’s baked her entire life, as is evident by her original Easy Bake Oven on prominent...
