So, I know it has been forever–again. I have just been so busy with family stuff, a new (2nd) job, and a new apartment. Whew. I am exhausted just thinking about everything!
Since we have been so busy–I really haven’t cooked anything “blog-worthy.” We have been eating out a lot though…so, I thought I could blog about some of my favorite places to eat in the Tempe/Phoenix area. I know only a few of you live in AZ, but I figured this post could be useful to someone visiting AZ anytime soon.
In no particular order, here are my TOP FIVE!!
Ok, I lied. This is #1 in my book. They have sandwiches, pizza, salads & everything is VEGAN. You gotta love that! Two favorites: the argentine po boy & the “green” burger–both with thyme fries & vegan ranch! *Bonus* The same people that own green run a wonderful lunch spot called That’s a Wrap. It is surely one of my favs also–but, hey–I couldn’t give them TWO spots on the TOP FIVE!
(2) Thai Basil
I actually just ate here for the 1st time today…but, it makes it into the TOP 5! The outside of this restaurant is deceiving…it is actually a very classy place with a nice decor on the inside. Vegetarian selections include: Pad Thai Tofu, Curry Tofu, Eggplant Tofu, Sweet and Sour Tofu, and Garlic Vegetables, plus others. I am not sure if any of these are vegan, so please ASK.
(3) Flavors of India
This is my fav Indian food place. They have a great and affordable buffet for lunch that always has tons of vegetarian items (again, I am not sure about vegan items, ASK). They also are super nice there and if something is not labeled as vegetarian (most always are), they are happy to help.
This place wins the award for “the best place to take omnis & keep everyone happy”. Vegetarians can sub tofu for any meat, they make everything when you order it & they have yummy frozen margaritas! If you are vegan, omit the cheese and the sour cream.
(5) The Mediterranean House
This place has a special portion of their menu labeled “vegetarian selections” (again, I am not sure about vegan items, ASK) so there is no guessing. The lady that runs the place is a doll and if you go there once, she’ll remember you forever!
Well, I hope these reviews will be helpful to you. I tried to pick a variety of cuisines and areas around the valley.
Hopefully, there will be some food related posts coming up soon!?
