5I9A1509-LDo you LOVE brunch but hate leaving campus? Do you want a fun new tradition to share with your friends? Do you love sleeping in on the weekends and eating a meal slightly resembling lunch but is really basically breakfast? Then YOU should try brunch at Dlush! Not only is it fun and exciting, but we have created 12 reasons why you should have your next brunch at Dlush:

1. It’s on campus so you don’t have to take a bus, ask someone to drive, drive yourself, leave campus, go far, or use data to open your maps application.

2. You can come in your jammies because, hey, we won’t judge.

3. You can start a new tradition with your friends. Ever heard of the Breakfast Club? You and your friends can star in your very own reality show (not reality tv, just reality) called The Brunch Club.

4. We serve our brunch items all day so you can have brunch at 8pm if you wanted to. Because, why not?

6. Our brunch items are really, really good. If you don’t believe us, just scroll to the end of this post to view a few snapshots of what we have for you.

7. We can give you and your friends a shoutout over the microphone, orrr you can make a fake name and give a shoutout to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or to SpongeBob or Agent P and Doofenshmirtz. Hey, the customer is always right.

8. If you don’t feel like being social, you can brunch solo because why not?

9. Our team really likes people, so you will be welcomed like you are at a mom ‘n pop restaurant (but you don’t have to worry about anyone calling you “hun”).

10. If you order a drink, we like to do drink art! Look on our Instagram page (@dlushlife) for some cool examples.

Well, it’s that time of the quarter. Midterms. Just think, it seemed like yesterday it was Week 1. The world was exciting and new; Stress was nowhere to be found. The Golden Age. Now, not so much. If you’re a serious student, you’ve probably turned to coffee—classic move.To help you out, the Dlush Team has done some research on the benefits and pitfalls of coffee so that you can use this caffeinated elixir wisely and crush those midterms.

1. Coffee makes you smarter: It has been shown in studies to improve memory, mood, and general, higher cognitive functions.

2. Coffee holds about 1,000 anti-oxidants that quell inflammation in your nervous system that fights off everything from arthritis to cancer.

3. Coffee has been found to decrease incidents of depression.

4. Coffee quickens your metabolism and can help you burn fat.

But, there are some kinks in coffee’s armor. Coffee raises your blood pressure and if consumed too much in a short period of time, can actually reverse the improvements in memory and cognition mentioned above. The solution? Be smart and drink coffee in moderation. More is not always merrier.

Pro Tip: The caffeine in coffee causes dehydration, which can cause sluggishness and lethargy (everything you don’t want to be the evening before your midterm). To combat this, drink something that will quench your thirst along with your coffee, like water or a sports drink. It will replace the water you lose due to caffeine and keep you firing on all cylinders.

Especially today, there are no excuses. Living in a world on the teeter of climate change and the habitual exploitation of the economically challenged, companies, regardless of the industry, need to step up their social responsibility and do their part for a sustainable globe. That’s why we’ve partnered with Cafe Moto for our coffee, espresso, and teas. Cafe Moto is a local roaster based here, in San Diego, sourcing their coffees and teas from organic and fair trade growers. To top it off, their facility where they roast and prepare their products is solar powered (Check them out here to find out more about their story and the products they offer). So, the next time you swing by Dlush and grab an americano or latte, know that you’re doing your part in helping promote a sustainable world.

Yoba 1

As you probably already know, Dlush is much more than a place to grab a refreshing drink and relax, it’s an experience. Everything from the service, the decor, and of course, the drinks, show off our commitment to the customer. In this spirit, we have unveiled a brand new addition to our beverages that gives you a new level of control over your Dlush drink and enhances their experience in new ways. Enter Yoba. Yoba stands for “Your boba”; Like traditional tapioca balls, it sits at the bottom of your cup, finding its way up through your straw, and adds a new dimension of flavor and texture to any Dlush beverage. But, we took it a step further- past the traditional- by using fresh, delicious ingredients and creating three delectable varieties.

First up is our Superyoba. Consisting of chia seeds, blueberries, and quinoa, Superyoba packs anti-oxidants and fiber into your cup, and pairs well with any fruity drink. Next is Fruityyoba. This variety has fresh strawberry, mango, and mandarin bits, and pairs amazingly with such drinks as our Guardian Angel Ice-T and Lavender Lemonade. Lastly, we have our Yummyyoba. Made of crushed Oreo, yogurt pretzel bits, and chocolate morsels, this Yoba compliments our blended shakes, like the Cookies n Cream, or the Caramel Kiss.

So, what are you waiting for? Head over to Dlush and try them all! You won’t be disappointed, I promise.

Craving some ooey gooey goodness? Make your own turkey monster melt, Dlush style! It’s a great go-to for lunch, dinner or a one seriously delicious midnight snack. Read on for a few simple steps to making your own.

diy_monster

Ingredients:

  • 5 slices of turkey
  • a few slices of mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon mayo
  • 2-3 tablespoons chopped bacon (we like ours on the crispier side for added texture)
  • 2 large leaves of lettuce (butter lettuce or romaine hearts work well)
  • 4 large tomato slices
  • 2 pieces of texas toast or bread of your choice
  • butter as needed

delishInstructions:

  1. Lightly coat the toast in butter.
  2. Layer turkey and cheese on one slice of bread. Toast as an open-face sandwich in a toaster oven or convention oven. Toast the second slice of buttered bread as well to ensure even cooking. Approximate time is around 4 – 6 minutes–we like a hot oven for this–about 425 F.
  3. Once melty and delicious looking, remove the open-face melt and second slice of bread, layer on tomato, lettuce and mayo.
  4. Sprinkle on bacon bits and add your top layer of toast.
  5. Eat and enjoy!
