Regional Beauty

Regional Beauty

The bustling city of San Luis Potosi, in the similarly named region around midpoint Mexico, is usually outshined by its more popular neighbors such as Guadalajara, Monterrey and Mexico City, but hopefully things are about to change.

 

Bahn Mi Boy

Vina Vietnamese Street Food at 4230 N. Oracle Road is new to the Oracle and Wetmore shopping area block but they are hardly new to the Tucson culinary scene.

Spice Girl

Wendy Garcia is a hurricane.

What’s In A Name

Originally hailing from Hong Kong, the Kwan family wound up in New York then made their way through the central United States only to find a home here in Tucson. Once they settled into the Old Pueblo, their eldest son, Howard, began apprenticing at various restaurants but found solace in the kitchens of sushi chefs.

Total Makeover

Lots of people, especially bar regulars, don't usually embrace a big change, but when it comes to Putney's Pit Stop out on 6090 N. Oracle, well it's more than just accepting change, it's about celebrating change, too.

A True Tucson Original

Started back in 1946 by the Taft family, Club 21 was the only game in the area, or most of the town really, to serve up authentic Mexican food with a full bar and lounge in a city that housed maybe 50,000 residents.
