Re: “Tucson Tamale's Secret Ingredient

Rock: That was obviously not the point I was trying to make. I have no preconceived notions about race/religion/region/etc. and cooking. Being Sicilian, I think I make better Asian food than pasta, better southern cuisine than east coast fare (where a majority of my family is from).

The fact is, and point I was trying, is that it does come to a lot of peoples mind, so it warrants the question. Also my point was TTC took guts to open, which was the underlying theme throughout the story.

Thanks for your input!

sabasbas: I will take the charge for oftentimes. The other grammatical mistake ("are guts") happened somewhere in the transition between my computer and the printing press. Thanks for noticing!

Re: “Tucson Tamale's Secret Ingredient

Thanks sasafras. When I eat their tamales I verb ally assault them. Don't try it at home, I am a pro noun. But let me offer you this preposition: I may be a little too adjective. You should try them.

As adults. Then sentence them.

Re: “Tucson Tamale's Secret Ingredient

Just a note, "often times" is one word ("oftentimes") and subject-verb agreement is a basic that many of us notice ("secret ingredient...are guts"). I am just another University High School English teacher lamenting quality standards at the Weekly. I am also a five-year Yelp Elite. Carry on!

Re: “Tucson Tamale's Secret Ingredient

Would the tamales be different if he had dark hair and brown eyes. Good food knows no color...my aunts have red hair and blue eyes and their tamales taste the same as my Mom's who is dark.Best of luck at your new location, we first tasted them at the Carrillo School tamale festival...you have come a long way from that first tasting!

Re: “Tucson Tamale's Secret Ingredient

Great article! Even better food. Go try the "I like Chix Tacos."

You'll never go veggie again.

Re: “Sandwiches on the Avenue

Damn. Leaving out Hopyard in a profile of sandwiches on 4th avenue? It's not my favorite either, but to leave them off completely is just cold. You've got O'Malley's on here for christs sake. Hopyard literally specializes in sandwiches. O'Malley's specializes in being a shithole.

Re: “Sandwiches on the Avenue

How you can write an article about sandwiches on 4th avenue and not have one from bumsteads is beyond my ability to comprehend.

Re: “Eat Your Vegetables

we ate there on a Friday, the grilled pizza came with an iced tea and it was $10.00 as the special. The pizza was huge, easily enough for 2, we brought our own wine, so it was less than $25.00? Seemed more than affordable to me!

Re: “Sandwiches on the Avenue

"we're not sure of the association between this sandwich's name and the chicken, bacon, wing sauce and ranch dressing inside"

Are you serious? The association is obvious. Hot chicks + over cured porkers + potential to burn you + ranch dressing inside...

I completely understand the name.

Re: “Eat Your Vegetables

I ate here with my cousins when they visited Tucson. Everything was tasty and the service was terrific. We had a relaxing dinner and the prices weren't too bad for the artistic presentations, creative ingredients, great service and nice customers who spoke to us.

Re: “Eat Your Vegetables

It's just so disheartening that healthful food options have to be so expensive. This place is truly unattainable for someone on a student budget.

Re: “Eat Your Vegetables

I'm NOT a vegetarian, but recently ate here with a friend. We opted for the rooftop seating. It was a fantastic setting for a quiet dinner. The food was amazing, I had the grilled pizza with almond pesto and other chopped veggie on top. It was a great meal, didn't miss the meat at all. I can't recommend it enough!

Re: “Identity Crisis

For a $6 substitution, it had either be all-you-can-eat, or the chef had better be preparing these tableside and placing them on a gold platter. Seriously, WTF.

Re: “Kung Fu Noodle's Not a Knock Out

Former Az Daily - fair enough, I miss understood what you were getting at. Perhaps what the reviewer was saying they appeared authentic to him/her, but had no appropriate way of confirming the same.

Re: “Kung Fu Noodle's Not a Knock Out

What the inspector saw: Nine critical violations on June 3, including a pork roast thawed overnight at room temperature instead of in the refrigerator, staff washing hands without soap and rice stored in dirty plastic bowls. Staff was unable to answer questions on food safety.

What the inspector saw: Nine critical violations on Aug. 1, including “multiple small live bugs in sugar,” moldy vegetables, food kept at the wrong temperatures, a cook using the same spoon to taste food and serve food, and a dirty kitchen.
