(Sept. 13, 2019) A new all-day breakfast and sub shop, Flavors & Foodies, has settled in at the 15th Street Shopping Center in Ocean City.
Laslo Jarmon, a local who graduated from Stephen Decatur High School, originally went to school to become a barber, but decided to open his own restaurant instead.
“I was spending so much money on food while studying to become a barber … and I decided food would be a better idea,” Jarmon said. “I also just want to do it for people to enjoy.”
Jarmon opened his shop in the middle of July with the goal to offer quality food for area residents in the offseason and for guests to enjoy during the summer. The store, formerly a deli, provides casual cuisine.
“I aim to make delicious food and drinks and making it good for people,” Jarmon said. “All day long, I want to serve customers the same delicious food I would enjoy.”
Breakfast options include bacon, ham or sausage and egg and cheese, grits, toast, bagels, chicken and waffles and a variety of smoothies. Smoothies come in strawberry, banana, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, apple, orange and mixed berry.
The shop also offers subs and sandwiches like the club, ham, turkey, roast beef, chicken salad, tuna salad, meatball and pepperoni pizza.
In addition to breakfast and lunch options, Flavors and Foodies also includes entrees like spaghetti and meatballs, chicken alfredo, shrimp alfredo and chicken parmesan.
For dessert, customers can choose from milkshakes or slushies. Milkshake flavors include coffee, vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, and slushy options include cherry, watermelon, pina colada, lemonade, root beer or coconut.
“I think people should come here because the food is fresh, it’s new and it has a [wide] variety of food and drinks,” Jarmon said.
The store is open Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to midnight. Jarmon plans to be open year-round, especially to cater to the local community.
“I want to reanimate the downtown area and bring more locals here during the offseason,” Jarmon said. “I hope I can be an inspiration for others to start a new business and keep pushing and aiming for success.”
