Halal of Precedents

Halal of Precedents

After moving to Tucson from San Francisco back in 2006, I was very happy and even relieved to have a local business such as the Caravan Market just a few blocks away from me.

Let’s Twist Again!

One afternoon, with an epic eye roll and indignant sigh, I grudgingly got in the car and drove out for their lunch buffet. And wow.

From Starter To Star

It was a text from a chef friend that sent me driving to a small taqueria across the street from the Tucson Medical Center a while back.

When the original Don Pedro's restaurant on South Sixth Avenue closed down after being in business for five years, the family behind the sumptuous Peruvian food almost gave up. Almost.

The Greenest Party

There was something in a salad that had me perk up and quiz, "The heck did I just eat?"

Taste Over Trend

Portland Pie

Leaving behind their chain of 18 restaurants in Portland, Marc and Tracy Frankel came to Tucson for a semi-retirement. But he couldn't leave pizza alone.

Roll ’Em!

Let's taco-bout Rollies Mexican Patio. Making its grand opening just before the new year, it is the freshest addition to the 12th Avenue restaurant scene in South Tucson.

The Love Stacks

"I think that's why Millie's has endured so long. It's quality mixed with consistency and I plan on keeping it that way."

How About a Mulligan?

CJ Hamm, along with partners Kade Mislinski and Dave Musso, turned a busy eastside street dive bar into an open and friendly neighborhood pub.

Come Back and Play

When I first stepped in The Playground a few years ago, to be honest with you, I didn't like it.

Honest Goodness

If you keep up with the culinary whirlwind that is happening in Tucson, you may have noticed a big influx of barbecue joints opening up.

Fizzy Lifting Drinks

Fermented tea may sound a bit gross if not oxymoronic, but a local family has concocted a strangely delicious elixir that has multiple health benefits.

One Hot Dog

Daniel Contreras went from cleaning dishes at a Tucson Travel Lodge motel to winning a prestigious award.

Dive In!

When Boondocks closed, longtime residents squealed: "No! What's going to happen to that crazy big chianti bottle?"
