Please be advised that the Smart Choices for Healthy Dining Tasting event that was scheduled for Sunday, January 22nd and is mentioned above, has been cancelled!
Koi Sushi Bar opened earlier this week. I did not see what time they opened but I believe they are open until 10pm each night. The food was pretty good.
The Buddhist Temple dinner sounds delicious.
Dining in a peaceful, loving environment too.
The Cajun food at The Parish on Oracle would be excellent if they cut the hot pepper by about 70%. Diners can always add more pepper if they want, but diners can't remove pepper!
The majority of diners don't want to have enamel burned off their teeth and their tongues stripped of skin by hot pepper.
The only bad dish I tasted there, except for the excessive pepper in almost every dish, was the hush puppies.
Hush puppies are supposed to be lighter, not hard, burned little rocks of death.
The gumbo is very good, but way too much pepper.
The Parish is a down home cozy little place in a neighborhood that needs a casual hangout and I hope it is a great success. Prices are reasonable too.
The construction menu is still in effect, the kitchen is not fully equipped yet, but from here The Parish can only get better and better, if they cut the pepper.
Live crawfish season is coming up in a couple of months, and The Parish staff says they will be flying in live crawfish from Louisiana instead of the frozen Asian crawfish they serve now, and crawfish season is a big event that coincides with Mardi Gras. Big doings ahead. Don't miss this celebration.
More Sushi in Tucson......Yea! BTW the new brewery in DT will be Thunder Canyon.
I took my visiting Polish Mom to Polish Cottage last week. Good renditions of Polish favorites, decent portions at reasonable prices and yes, good beer selection. Two Polish thumbs up.
The people not aware of the scourge that is breast cancer are the numerous women - and some men - diagnosed when the cancer has already metastasized. Early detection saves lives, and awareness promotes early detection.
It would be great if 100 percent went to research, but if only 20 percent goes that way that's still much better than none. It only takes one family member or friend to fall ill with cancer to really send this message home. Pinkwash me any day if it means somebody can have a loved one around a little longer.
You have a point, Downtowner, but Komen does spend a significant amount of cash on education and health screenings as well. Around 20% of their total budget is allocated to administration and fundraising.
"...to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a foundation dedicated to breast-cancer awareness and research.."
You all have just fallen victim to Komen pinkwashing - Komen allocates just 19 percent of its very hefty take to research.
And who, pray tell, is NOT aware of the scourge that is breast caner?
The Bagelry closed again? F.
That TD's Showclub ad right smack in the middle of the story about Wilko's cocktail bar is a little weird, folks.
Thanks Downtowner. I try to feature the better food trucks in the print edition as well, being that the Food Truck Diaries are strictly online.
Your previous story on mexico city kitchen.
I'm thrilled to hear that a food & drink place is getting ready to open up in the former Reilly Funeral home on Pennington. I'm not thrilled about the food idea though. Pizza, pasta & sandwiches? Not very inventive or needed. Bummer.
Thanks. I noticed that this morning. Any idea how long it has been closed?
It looks like the La Salsa on the SW corner of Campbell and Fort Lowell is shuttered.
Will miss Flankenstein's.
Couldn't agree more, Scarpia B. I did some serious binge shopping there right after it opened and it's all been great, even the "Sandwich Sprinkle," which is not something I would typically buy. Man, I was skeptical, too, but was sooooo wrong.
Penzey's is a god-send. They have the most complete collection of spices anyone could think of, good quality and better prices. For the neophytes out there, when I started to buy Penzeys spices, I thought the blends were a way to increase margin on a commodity product. Was I wrong. the blends are the best thing in the store, the Arizona Blend is the absolute best SW spice you will ever use.
We have had to buy our Penzey's spices when making the trek to Scottsdale. It is so wonderful that they are in Tucson.
