What's cookin', Tucson?
This month marked a new year of new dishes, beverages, and experiences at local restaurants, bars, pop-ups, events, and more. We ended up with a pretty diverse list this month.
Here's a look back at what the Tucson Foodie team enjoyed the most in January. Also, not only are these reminders of the dishes we ate, but they can also be a guide for your own decisions on what to eat here in Tucson.
I've eaten incredibly well this month! I enjoyed one of the most satisfying meals ever at Obon. Their new lunch menu is what dreams are made of. I couldn't leave without street noodles and Bird Buns.
I went to Le Rendez-vous and it was abundantly clear why they were listed as one of Arizona's Best French Restaurants. I usually wouldn't have opted for a puff pastry for dessert, but the pithivier was in a league of its own. This reminds me, and it pains me to have to say, but be nice to your servers. Show some kindness.
I also went to Tito & Pep. I made an entire meal out of their apps and desserts. It was the perfect date night; it always is.
I felt kinda boring ordering the Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo but turns out, it was a masterful choice. Bravo, Zip Peppe!
WTF... Are You Nuts? is a perfect name for the outrageous donut burger special at the locally-owned Donut Bar downtown. This thing is extreme and oh so damn delicious!
Want to have a perfect day? Here’s the ingredients - pick a sun-filled spot on the patio at Saint Charles, order a Ray Ray’s Sonoran Spirit Tea (it’s on tap there), and DoorDash Go Dim Sum. Best day ever!
