Bon Appetit mag highlights Tucson as “one of the best gastro-tourism experiences” ever

Seven local restaurants highlighted.

Food and entertainment magazine Bon Appetit highlighted seven Tucson restaurants in an article on Friday.

Titled How to Spend a Big Fat Weekend in Tucson, Arizona, the article begins with writer Carey Polis “desperate for some sunshine and warmth in March” somewhere other than Florida or California.

Her trip to Tucson wasn’t originally culinarily focused, however:

While my culinary expectations were fairly low (“Not every vacation needs to revolve around food,” I told myself), that attitude was completely unfounded. This trip to Tucson was one of the best (unintentional) gastro-tourism experiences I’ve ever had—from great local wheat bread to bean-to-bar chocolate, vegan pork tacos to overstuffed hot dogs.

Polis then highlights El Charro Cafe, Oasis Fruit Cones, El Guero Canelo, Tumerico, Barrio Bread, Cafe Santa Rosa, and Monsoon Chocolate as places to eat and drink.
