Phoenix, Arizona

Rising from the dry Salt River Valley to become the fifth largest US city and capital of Arizona, Phoenix lives up to its namesake, the mythical bird revived by fire. Established in the late 1880s as a farming community, today’s Phoenix spans 500 square miles. The city’s food traditions reflect its Mexican and Spanish legacy, Western frontier history, and diverse population. La Hacienda is considered one of the finest Mexican restaurants in town, while the Handlebar J Saloon serves up live country music with steaks. Fine restaurants come with patios for enjoying vivid sunsets, and are often associated with hotels and resorts. Kai, nationally acclaimed for Native American cuisine with global accents, is located at Wild Horse Pass Resort. Flamma Trattoria, a cousin of NYC-based Flamma Osteria, serves Italian fare in a sophisticated setting. Eggs Benedict and blueberry pancakes are available all day at the popular Breakfast Club in Scottsdale, while recent Asian immigrants have introduced Chinese, Thai, and Indonesian menus.

A nice change from mayo-based slaw. Not too sweet or sour. Enjoyed its flavor on the first...
