TweetI’ve been to some really forking great restaurants this year in the Metro Phoenix Area.
Sumo Mayo in Scottsdale AZ really forking knocked it out of the park with their Mexican Asian Fusion menu of Tapas dishes. The Korean Beef Taco was so intricate and layered with flavors. My only complaint is that it was too small so you couldn’t enjoy it enough. Everything I tried there was delicious and the restaurant is as beautiful as the food.
This for sure is the Forking Place to go now!
Bink’s Scottsdale AZ Serves up Delightful Imaginative Dishes! Like Curry Pear Soup with Hibiscus, The Salad I had pictured above was made of Spinach, Pickled Onions, Dates, Labne, Kumquats and Harissa Vinaigrette. Everything I tried here was masterfully prepared.
You can almost taste this Baked Trout!
FnB in Scottsdale AZ doesn’t make the most photogenic food but makes the vegetables that gets transformed into something you never thought they could be. Everything at FnB is forking delicious but that Grilled Eggplant with Summer Wheat Berry Tabbouleh, Harissa and Feta was another one of the darn amazing vegetables dishes I had here. A few of the other amazing vegetables dishes were Gilfeather Rutabaga with Ginger Creme Friache and Chives, The Spicy Grilled Broccoli with Tangerine Aioli and Pistachios for sure is delicious. Food and Wine Magazine named FnB’s Leek Dish with Fried Egg and Mustard Bread Crumbs Award Winning.
All the food not just the vegetables are outstanding here. I am partial to the wood grilled fish dishes. They are also noted for featuring Arizona Wines and many of the plates are meant for sharing. They also have a cute wine and food store that you should check out.
I had a Three Course Dinner Special at Zinc Bistro in Scottsdale AZ. I can’t stop thinking about how great everything was especially that French Cold Potato Soup with Salmon Croquettes and House cured Salmon. No words can describe how good it really was. Our dinners were also excellent and the dessert was also another one of the best I ever had anywhere.
This could be renamed Knock Out Desert because you could fight over it as it was that good. Heavenly light but almost crisp with the perfect amount of chocolate and sweetness studded with extra special cherries.
Everything I tried from Virtu Honest Craft was Well Crafted and Memorable. Outstanding out of the ordinary cocktails, The best Bronzino I ever had anywhere and a truly amazing desert. I can’t wait to go back.
These were the very best of what I Forking Had in Phoenix in 2014 so far. I can’t wait for the other half.
