Restaurant Review Part I: Santa Fe to Scottsdale

March 25, 2011

Could this post title be any longer?

So far on this trip we’ve eaten out a lot.  If I don’t have to pay the bill, I don’t mind 😛  There have been good meals and bad meals but they’ve all been memorable. 

Real Food Nation: Santa Fe

I hate giving this place a bad review.  It wasn’t bad per say, but it was certainly disappointing considering it was recommended to us and it had 5 stars on Yelp!  That’s unheard of.  Sadly, we were all unimpressed (except my sister but I maintain that she was just hungry and anything would have tasted good).  I got the vegan meal and it was the definition of bland.

Above is the reason vegan food gets a bad rap.

Guadalupe Cafe: Santa Fe

We redeemed ourselves with breakfast the next morning.  I give Guadalupe Cafe two thumbs up.  I got the migas and the eggs rocked.  And I shared a pecan pancake with my mom.  They were huge!

Whole Foods: Santa Fe

I’d be lying if I said one of the best things I’ve eaten so far on the trip wasn’t the sandwich I had made at Whole Foods in Santa Fe.  Veggies + sundried tomato pesto on focaccia = deelicious.

Wildflower Bread Company: Sedona

This turned out to be a chain Panera-style restaurant but we all seemed to like it.  I’m a fan of anything that serves oatmeal and doesn’t come out tasting like bland goo.

And my mom is a fan of anywhere that lets her customize her breakfast sandwich and have it served on a croissant, or should I say “cwah-saw,” Mom?

Dragonfly Cafe: Scottsdale

My mom and I’s breakfast restaurant of choice in AZ.  We went there twice and I was impressed both times.  First by the pancakes and then by the omelettes.

I’m not even about to pretend I finished that whole thing.  Greek omelette = eggs, spinach, tomatoes, kalamata olives and feta.

Pita Jungle: Scottsdale

And I think we all know how I felt about it.


More restaurant review and foodie talk to come.

Happy Friday!
