Now that the brisk months of winter are most definitely upon us, there's no better time than the present to enjoy a warm meal at a restaurant that's sure to leave you with a sunnier disposition — whether that means scoring a table at your closest neighborhood eatery with a cozy fireplace or channeling the balmy climate of the islands with a tropical meal from a nearby tiki-themed restaurant.

While the atmosphere and setting of a certain restaurant can surely help to thaw the frosty effects of winter, the kind of food they're serving can also heat things up. Go ahead and order an exceptionally spicy dish, then see how long it takes you to reach for a napkin to wipe the sweat from your brow. Menus that offer dishes featuring wild game meats are another sure bet for those looking to warm their bodies and souls this season — there's nothing quite like a filling meal of meat and potatoes to offer a sense of comfort during the winter.

So while the weather continues to blow and bluster outside, consider the stories and slideshows below to be a beacon of warmth guiding you through the ice, wind, sleet, and snow.

8 Tiki Restaurants for the Winter Blues

The crisp winter air and icy-cool temperatures are enough to make anyone long for an escape to the balmy beaches of Hawaii. While it may be not be totally feasible for everyone to hop on a plane and take a tropical vacation, there are plenty of restaurants in Hawaii and across the rest of the country that offer a taste of the islands every day.

10 Best Game Restaurants in America

Today, American restaurant menus are scattered with offerings of wild game, which can be more or less a marketing gimmick — but it’s likely consumers don’t mind. And maybe diners who seek game out on menus are tapping into some idyllic notion of living off the land or looking for the thrill of savoring a creature considered both elusive and wild. And for all of that, there’s no shortage of game restaurants to help them in their pursuits.

8 Spectacular Restaurant Fireplaces

As far as décor goes, there is nothing quite like a fireplace to make a restaurant appear cozy and inviting to prospective diners. A great soundtrack can set the vibe quite nicely, but with a full house it can become more disruptive than enjoyable. Candles or floral centerpieces can add character to a table, but they can make it tough to share meals and converse with dining companions. Whether the fireplace has a cool stone facade or is made of polished, carved wood, it is sure to add atmospheric depth to any meal.

10 Spiciest Dishes in America

Some dishes feature spices, bold or subtle, that together create nuanced flavor profiles. Forget them. This is about the dark side of spices. This is about the spiteful, mouth-on-fire, writhing-in-agony stomach pains that accompany eating dishes whose capsaicin levels are far above anything the average person should be consuming — if they're smart that is. This is about looking for trouble, seeking pain, and testing your mettle.


9 warming recipes to welcome the colder weather

Winter is a time for comforting meals like warm malva pudding, hearty soups and comfort food. The kind of meals that fill you up while you're wrapped in a blanket watching TV. Winter is coming, so sip on some spicy Gluhwein, put a South Africa twist on a homely pot pie, or simmer some silky melkkos on the stove.

A DROOL WORTHY VEGETARIAN WINTER COMFORT FOOD
Chef Per Menkö, the owner of the Casablanca-inspired eatery Rick's Café Américain, has dished up a delicious wintery bake you won't want to keep to yourself. Layered Aubergine Tagine with Lentils is a hearty Moroccan style meal that is filled with a range of melty cheeses, aubergine, pasta sheets, perfectly balanced spices and a hearty lentil bolognese. A foolproof way to fend off the chill is to dive into this indulgent winter layered vegetarian bake.

SUGARY, CINNAMONY DELICIOUS MILK FOOD FOR WINTER NIGHTS
Melkkos literally translated means milk food and is a delicious Afrikaans dish often passed down for generations. It's a homely dish that uses only a few ingredients and will take you right back to your childhood. All you'll need is full cream milk, cinnamon, cardamom pods, sugar, cake flour, salt and butter to make this quick and easy melkkos recipe.

SIP AND WATCH YOUR CHEEKS GLOW
Gluhwein is a German/Austrian hot and boozy drink, similar to mulled wine, think holiday spices, citrus, and smooth red wine. Austrian-born chef Roland Gorgosilich shared with us his recipe for a warming Gluehwein punch. You'll need one and a half bottles of red wine, three oranges and two lemons for zesting, orange juice, cinnamon, star anise, four cloves and bay leaves. And for those of us who have run out of wine or want to share with the kids, you can swap out the red wine with cranberry juice to make Roland Gorgosilich&rsquos Glühwein.

AN EASY HEARTWARMING SOUTH AFRICAN FAVOURITE
Malva pudding is a classic baked dessert no South African can resist. This melt in your mouth recipe with sweet and fruity apricot jam and a drizzle of hot custard will melt even the coldest of hearts. The key to any malva pudding is waiting for the buttery sweet sauce to soak into the cake. It's harder than it sounds. You can also serve it with cream or ice-cream to make this sweet South African even harder to resist.

A HEALTHY AND CHUNKY START TO WINTER
Minestrone soup is a perfect dinner dish for anyone who doesn&rsquot fancy themselves a pro in the kitchen. This soup is perfect for using up those bottom-of-the-veggie-drawer ingredients. The Washington Post has published a drool-worthy minestrone soup that calls for an onion, cabbage, beans, pasta and your choice of vegetables. Starting with the onions, cook in a saucepan over medium until translucent, add your spices, your assortment of vegetables add your broth and then turn down the heat and let simmer. You can follow the full recipe via the Washington Post website.

STUFF YOUR PEPPERS TO THE BRIM
Stuffed bell peppers are the perfect vessel for just about any ingredients you have in your pantry or fridge. You really can adjust the recipe to what you like. Delish has served up a stuffed bell pepper dish that is perfect as a quick and easy meal for the whole family. You can start by cutting off the tops of the peppers and stuffing each one with your choice of beef, chicken, fish or vegetables. Finish off with a heavy handful of cheese before baking in a hot oven. You can follow the full recipe below via the Delish website.

YOU CAN STILL BRAAI YOUR BOERIE IN WINTER
No matter the weather a dedicated South African will still manage to have a braai. Foodies SA has served up a classic South African dish with ingredients most of us will likely already have in our pantry or freezer. While the braai is warming up you can make the maize meal crust with chicken stock, maize meal, butter and salt. For the filling, you'll need baked beans, hot and spicy chakalaka, boerewors, an egg, parsley and seasoning. The combination of the chakalaka with a hot pie straight from the oven is a sure-fire way to keep you warm even on the chilliest of nights. You can watch the full recipe below or follow the recipe via the Foodies SA website.

NO STRESS LASAGNE
Lasagne is a popular family favourite. It's delicious, child approved, and can be a super easy meal to make. Southern Living has dished out a foolproof recipe that will easily find a permanent spot on your dinner rotation. You'll need your choice of protein (or you could keep it vegetarian), canned tomatoes, lasagne noodles and your selection of cheeses. This recipe is also perfect for storing in the freezer and re-heating when you need a comforting warming meal. You can watch the full video and follow the recipe via the Southern Living website.

NOT YOUR OUMA'S BOBOTIE
Learn to make a classic South African dish from an unlikely source: German-born chef Stefan Schmidt. This delicious deconstructed bobotie is a fresh modern take on tradition. The Cape Malay flavour is all there: beef mince, onion, apricots, apricot jam, chutney, currents and a blend of aromatic spices. Spend a day challenging yourself in the kitchen and reinvent a classic Cape Malay bobotie recipe at home.

The Washington Post has published a drool-worthy minestrone soup that calls for an onion, cabbage, beans, pasta and your choice of vegetables. Starting with the onions, cook in a saucepan over medium until translucent, add your spices, your assortment of vegetables add your broth and then turn down the heat and let simmer. You can follow the full recipe via the Washington Post website.

STUFF YOUR PEPPERS TO THE BRIM
Stuffed bell peppers are the perfect vessel for just about any ingredients you have in your pantry or fridge. You really can adjust the recipe to what you like. Delish has served up a stuffed bell pepper dish that is perfect as a quick and easy meal for the whole family. You can start by cutting off the tops of the peppers and stuffing each one with your choice of beef, chicken, fish or vegetables. Finish off with a heavy handful of cheese before baking in a hot oven. You can follow the full recipe below via the Delish website.

YOU CAN STILL BRAAI YOUR BOERIE IN WINTER
No matter the weather a dedicated South African will still manage to have a braai. Foodies SA has served up a classic South African dish with ingredients most of us will likely already have in our pantry or freezer. While the braai is warming up you can make the maize meal crust with chicken stock, maize meal, butter and salt. For the filling, you'll need baked beans, hot and spicy chakalaka, boerewors, an egg, parsley and seasoning. The combination of the chakalaka with a hot pie straight from the oven is a sure-fire way to keep you warm even on the chilliest of nights. You can watch the full recipe below or follow the recipe via the Foodies SA website.

NO STRESS LASAGNE
Lasagne is a popular family favourite. It's delicious, child approved, and can be a super easy meal to make. Southern Living has dished out a foolproof recipe that will easily find a permanent spot on your dinner rotation. You'll need your choice of protein (or you could keep it vegetarian), canned tomatoes, lasagne noodles and your selection of cheeses. This recipe is also perfect for storing in the freezer and re-heating when you need a comforting warming meal. You can watch the full video and follow the recipe via the Southern Living website.

NOT YOUR OUMA'S BOBOTIE
Learn to make a classic South African dish from an unlikely source: German-born chef Stefan Schmidt. This delicious deconstructed bobotie is a fresh modern take on tradition. The Cape Malay flavour is all there: beef mince, onion, apricots, apricot jam, chutney, currents and a blend of aromatic spices. Spend a day challenging yourself in the kitchen and reinvent a classic Cape Malay bobotie recipe at home.

9 warming recipes to welcome the colder weather

Winter is a time for comforting meals like warm malva pudding, hearty soups and comfort food. The kind of meals that fill you up while you're wrapped in a blanket watching TV. Winter is coming, so sip on some spicy Gluhwein, put a South Africa twist on a homely pot pie, or simmer some silky melkkos on the stove.

A DROOL WORTHY VEGETARIAN WINTER COMFORT FOOD
Chef Per Menkö, the owner of the Casablanca-inspired eatery Rick's Café Américain, has dished up a delicious wintery bake you won't want to keep to yourself. Layered Aubergine Tagine with Lentils is a hearty Moroccan style meal that is filled with a range of melty cheeses, aubergine, pasta sheets, perfectly balanced spices and a hearty lentil bolognese. A foolproof way to fend off the chill is to dive into this indulgent winter layered vegetarian bake.

SUGARY, CINNAMONY DELICIOUS MILK FOOD FOR WINTER NIGHTS
Melkkos literally translated means milk food and is a delicious Afrikaans dish often passed down for generations. It's a homely dish that uses only a few ingredients and will take you right back to your childhood. All you'll need is full cream milk, cinnamon, cardamom pods, sugar, cake flour, salt and butter to make this quick and easy melkkos recipe.

SIP AND WATCH YOUR CHEEKS GLOW
Gluhwein is a German/Austrian hot and boozy drink, similar to mulled wine, think holiday spices, citrus, and smooth red wine. Austrian-born chef Roland Gorgosilich shared with us his recipe for a warming Gluehwein punch. You'll need one and a half bottles of red wine, three oranges and two lemons for zesting, orange juice, cinnamon, star anise, four cloves and bay leaves. And for those of us who have run out of wine or want to share with the kids, you can swap out the red wine with cranberry juice to make Roland Gorgosilich&rsquos Glühwein.

AN EASY HEARTWARMING SOUTH AFRICAN FAVOURITE
Malva pudding is a classic baked dessert no South African can resist. This melt in your mouth recipe with sweet and fruity apricot jam and a drizzle of hot custard will melt even the coldest of hearts. The key to any malva pudding is waiting for the buttery sweet sauce to soak into the cake. It's harder than it sounds. You can also serve it with cream or ice-cream to make this sweet South African even harder to resist.
