Restaurant Review Part I: Santa Fe to Scottsdale
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.
