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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
No one ever said anything about "A bunch of asians speaking chinese" [sic]. The article was talking about the 'very authentic appearing clientele'. This leaves open the possibility that the clientele could have appeared to be 'authentic' but may not have actually been 'authentic.' The speculation is hanging over this review. It's a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a "Chinese Beef Burrito" and I want to know more.
I have ordered from there numerous times, the last time (10/1/2014) they provided no salsa, no silverware, no chips, the food was cold, and had very little taste. The last time the food was not good, no flavor, no chips included. We would not order from there again. Poor quality!!!!
Soooo the reviewer should have said "A bunch of asians speaking chinese"? Or they should have went up to them like the INS or gestapo and asked for their papers to validate their authenticity? Cause that would not be racist at all!
Great review until I saw "The very authentic appearing clientele ..." Typical lazy Tucson journalism, not verifying whether the clientele that frequents this establishment was in fact 'authentic'. Instead they just leave us with speculation from the writer that they probably were but we don't know for sure. Since this is Tucson we probably won't see any follow up on this article either.
Well I also have a vegan palate and anytime I have gone to taco urbano they make me veggie tacos that have bell pepper onion tomato and potato on a cripy corn tortilla they are ao delicious♥♥♥♥
Exactly right with the gluten thing, wheat, cereals and farinacious(sp) crops have been the staff of life forever. Of course if you have celiac disease you need to eat that way, otherwise it's just another fad. It will go away like cupcakes and eventually the $15-$20 a meal food trucks too. Just a fad.
As good now as 30+ years ago when I first lived here. Saw Brian Bromberg perform here before he went to L.A. And got rich and famous!
Terrible place. I am a tucson native and love the new downtown. But this place is a TERRIBLE addition.
No mistake that this place is on the ground floor of student housing. I will avoid it like Ebola.
$6 EXTRA to switch to sweet potato tots?? GTFO.
What an awful addition to our revitalized downtown. The developer and the owner should be put in stockades so we can throw milkshakes and stale pretzels at them. I don't see this place lasting. With any luck the replacement can tear down those obnoxious phallic signs/tvs.
remember that place on 4th Ave that sold alcoholic slushee type drinks? that place was fun. "Wasted with Brain Freeze" was what i called it.
@seville99, you can google "the twisted tandoor" and it will take you exactly where you need to be
with any luck they bug out after months because they aren't making enough money.
Ugh. Sounds wretched. It's a shame our downtown got stuck with such a place. What's in Scottsdale should stay in Scottsdale.
