Sure, whoever said, “food is not the answer” is probably skinny, but sir or madame buzzkill is also probably a hungry (therefore horrible) person who generally sucks to be around. We want you to come to the joyous side and beat your Wednesday woes by reading what’s happening this week in the wonderful world of food blogs.
We all know that Pizzeria Bianco is known round the U.S. of A as one of the best pizza joints, but it may want to scootch over to make room for The Parlor as their Salsiccia pizza was just named “Best Slice in the State” by Food Network Magazine. The former beauty parlor has the magazine all abuzz describing the pizza as “a thin, chewy, lightly charred crust loaded with melted slabs of mozzarella and cheddar, grilled radicchio and spicy pork sausage,” while also calling it a “must” for anyone who crosses the Arizona border. Check out the full post on Chow Bella here to see the best place to grab a slice wherever your travels may take you.
Speaking of nothing to do with Pizza, EricEatsOut seems to be back in action for the time being (horray!) so we just have to cover his recent review of Perk Eatery in Phoenix. Eric has fatherhood and some late night tweeting to blame for his recent trip there, but only the restaurant can take responsibility
for its delicious food and friendly atmosphere. Eric had nothing but nice things to say about the family owned restaurant and its Zeffry Burger (pictured left) while also giving praise to the 24 breakfast service and “real food” they serve to “real people.” Sometimes, you just want to go where everybody knows your name….
Michele Laudig took a trip to someplace she had been dreaming about, too: Elote Cafe in Sedona. The “destination dining” spot has been tossed around in conversations about the best restaurants in the state, but they don’t take reservations and flip flops are accepted, Laudig reported. From the Elote corn dish (pictured above), to the lamb shank and even the chicken enchiladas, everything sounded pretty delicious.
Chicken enchiladas may sound run-of-the-mill, but succulent smoked bird, fresh tortillas, and the combination of two complementary sauces — vibrant salsa verde and a judicious amount of rich chipotle crema — elevated it to a luxury.
If food like that doesn’t inspire you to take the same mini road trip to the red rocks, well, maybe nothing will. Read the full review here.
Finally, EaterAZ is back on the radar because they are just too funny to pass up. With a post entitled “Beat Your Meat” we just couldn’t ignore them one more week. The post is obviously about a meat tenderizing utensil called “Double Trouble” because you can both pound and roll your tough, unlabeled Choice beef cuts for the grill until they are edible. It’s the perfect solution for those who have filet mignon taste on a mystery meat budget.
Until next week, eat whatever the hell you want and enjoy it, my friends.
