Tucson just got another culinary shout out, this time for Bon Appetit Magazine. Writer Carey Polis just wanted to escape the winter weather she says in her article, “How To Spend a Big Fat Weekend in Tucson, Arizona,” but found a food paradise. She goes on to write:

“While my culinary expectations were fairly low (“Not every vacation needs to revolve around food,” I told myself), that attitude was completely unfounded. This trip to Tucson was one of the best (unintentional) gastro-tourism experiences I’ve ever had—from great local wheat bread to bean-to-bar chocolate, vegan pork tacos to overstuffed hot dogs.”

She went on to describe her experiences at El Charro Cafe, Oasis Fruit Cones, El Guero Canelo Tumerico, Barrio Bread, Cafe Santa Rosa, and Monsoon Chocolate.
