Tucson Episode of Andrew Zimmern’s 'Bizarre Foods'

Posted By on Mon, Apr 26, 2010 at 4:08 PM

A Travel Channel spokeswoman dropped us an e-mail to confirm that Tucson will be featured in the episode of Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre Foods scheduled to air Monday, May 17.

We already reported some months ago that Zimmern was taping an episode about the carne seca at El Charro, but the recent e-mail said the Travel Channel star also stopped by two hole-in-the wall restaurants while he was in town.

According to an entry on Zimmern’s blog he had birria at Maico’s, the tiny Mexican joint that serves up great food on Styrofoam plates at 835 E. 22nd Street; and pumpkin empanadas, tacos de cabeza and flan at Pico de Gallo at 2618 S. Sixth Ave. Both of the restaurants are fully Tucson authentic, and we applaud Zimmern’s nose for good food.

Will business at the two places go through the roof like it did after Lindy’s was featured on Man v. Food? We’re not sure yet, but that sure would be a leg up for two down-home Tucson restaurants.
