Here’s a look back at what the Tucson Foodie team enjoyed during June!

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.

8195 N. Oracle Rd.

I prefer to drink my calories in the summer. The Painkiller at Cabali really does take your pain away.

Hacienda Del Sol
5501 N. Hacienda Del Sol Rd.

The Tiki Tuesday cocktails from Hacienda del Sol pair well with any of its new menu items such as the spring rolls (not pictured here because I was too hungry to snap a photo).

La Botana Tacos
565 E. Wetmore Rd. #155

The two-for-one giant margaritas at La Botana are perfect for a girl’s night or a hard day.

Kung Fu Noodle
3122 N. Campbell Ave. # 100

Everything at Kung Fu Noodle. Always served piping hot, I’ve loved every plate. This month I had the Kung Pao tofu and the garlic broccoli.

La Botana Tacos
565 E. Wetmore Rd. #155

La Botanas’ Rojas Poblanas burrito (that I ordered chimi style). Roasted poblanos, corn, beans, rice, and more — the thing is massive. Plus their salsa bar is amazing and each basket of chips is served with warm smoky chipotle bean dip.

Ken’s Hardwood Barbecue
5250 E. 22nd St.

The staff is so friendly and the owner is super nice. The food is fresh and made in-house and you can taste the quality. I had the jalapeño cheddar sausage and it was so good! Gobs of gooey melted cheese, medium heat, and in a soft Sonoran dog-style bun.

Ken’s Hardwood Barbecue’s Fried Mac and Cheese is my favorite in town. Thick coating, not greasy and so tasty.

Lovin’ Spoonfuls
2990 N. Campbell Ave. #120

Lovin’ Spoonfuls’ Biscuits & Gravy and a spicy mock bloody mary!

Tuxon Chix
5524 E. Grant Rd.

Tuxon Chix! One of my favorite local fast-food spots in town. I get mine to go and I hang out with the ducks and turtles at the nearby Ft. Lowell Park (2900 N. Craycroft Rd.).

Le Cave’s Bakery
3950 E. 22nd St.

I picked up this doughnut from Le Cave’s on National Doughnut Day. There are several great doughnut shops in Tucson so it was tough deciding where to go!

Beyond Bread
Multiple Locations

The Kalie’s Kurry at Beyond Bread is packed with chunks of white meat and creamy curried chicken salad, slivered almonds, sweet dried cranberries, and crispy lettuce in a wheat pita. Big enough for lunch and dinner!

Edna’s Eatery by Charly’s Grill
2150 N. Alvernon Way

“Spaghetti enjoyed the scrambled eggs and sweet baked potato from the Dog Days menu at Edna’s Eatery at the Tucson Botanical Gardens. She made sure to mention that the prices were very affordable since she doesn’t work.”
