The Habit Burger Grill Introduces New Sesame Ginger Salad and it’s delicious!

For a limited time that began on January 31, The Habit Restaraunts, Inc, is introducing a new Asian-inspired Sesame Ginger Salad.

The new Sesame Ginger Salad ($7.99) combines crisp, fresh garden greens tossed in a flavorful sesame ginger dressing with carrots, cilantro, chopped tomatoes, tender edamame beans, and crunchy wonton strips. Tangy teriyaki sauce is then drizzled over the guest’s choice of perfectly chargrilled chicken or sushi-grade ahi tuna to top their salad. Like all menu items at The Habit, the Sesame Ginger Salad is made-to-order.

I just had to go and try it! It’s delicious! I love the sesame ginger dressing and the chicken is so tasty! I don’t usually like to order salads when I go out to eat but I definitely will be ordering this one again! They also have really tasty burgers and I love to get them wrapped in lettuce!

One reason I love to go eat at The Habit is because they have delicious sides too! One of my favorites is the Tempura Green Beans!

The Habit is known for its award-winning Charburger which features 100% fresh, never frozen ground beef grilled over an open flame and topped with melted cheese, caramelized onions, pickles, fresh tomato, crisp lettuce, and mayo served on a toasted bun. Their restaurants have been serving the Best Tasting Burger in America exactly this way since the first Habit opened in 1969.

Peekaboo! I see you! It’s little Pepper, an 8-month-old little female calico who was found on the streets as a stray. As you can see from her photo, Pepper is up for play at any time and will add as much zest to your life as her name suggests! She’s a beauty, too.

Will My Letters to My Favorite TV Show Ever Get Read?

It’s easy to get attached to your favorite TV show, and if you’re the more creative type, you can probably feel many ideas rushing to your head every time a new episode comes on. Or you might simply reach out and say hi to the people who’ve made this come to life. While it can seem easy to get in touch with the showrunners, getting a reply is often something kids brag about and cherish as a special moment, and for a good reason – it’s surprisingly hard to ensure that your messages will actually go through!

Try Social Media

This one should be obvious, but it’s surprisingly commonly forgotten. You can try reaching out to your favourite actors on their Twitter, Instagram or Facebook accounts – if the show is popular enough, chances are they will be quite active on at least one or two of those networks. On the other hand, popularity can actually work against you sometimes, as if they are getting too many messages on a regular basis, it might be hard for them to get back to you specifically.

A More Personal Message

If you want to say something more personal and deeper to someone specific, you can use a business email finder service such as The Email Finder to look up their e-mail address if it is connected to a business domain (which it might if they are with a TV network or their agent is high-profile). You can then write to them. Be careful though, if the person doesn’t want to be contacted like that, this might actually backfire and get you in trouble!

As long as you’re polite and reasonable though, this should be no problem, and you might even make a few new friends that way. Just don’t overdo it, and remember that actors are also people with busy lives, and you wouldn’t want to take away from their productivity, right?

Does Regular Mail Still Work?

There’s also an option that some people consider forgotten, but it’s actually still surprisingly viable. Sending a good old letter can work very well in some cases, especially if the person enjoys that kind of gesture in the first place. Sadly, sometimes the address of the studio is all you’ll have, and you’ll need to be careful to ensure that the message reaches the right person.

As long as you take your time researching this though – and that shouldn’t be hard with the help of the Internet – you can get to write a more personalized, colorful message that will surely be received more warmly! Some people have even managed to become regular pen pals with their favorite actors and actresses, and you never know when you might end up lucky in this regard yourself!

It’s greater than ever to be a fan of something today, and if you want to get in touch with those who’ve made your favorite show possible, you have plenty of opportunities for that. All you need is a little creativity, and the ability to find the contact details of the people relevant to your interests – and the rest comes down to being a true fan.
