Taste the Local Food of Flagstaff

Several months ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Flagstaff, Arizona for a long weekend where I got to absorb many gorgeous views and delicious bites. Nestled amongst groves of ponderosa pines, this cozy college city is bustling with a diverse mix of food offerings. If you’re planning a visit to Flagstaff this spring season, here are three spots you simply must visit.

Begin your day at Mart Annes Burrito Palace, a vibrant Mexican restaurant known for its stacked breakfast and brunch plates. Chilaquiles, a dish made from saucy, toasted tortilla chips, are the thing to urge here. you'll order classic red or green chilaquiles or get them with chorizo or Mart Anne’s punchy green chile pork. For something sweet, try the split French toast or Blueberry Buckwheat and Banana Pancakes.

If you’re fueling up for an extended day of hiking and sightseeing, order the J.B.’s Volcano, a generous helping of chilaquiles, green chile pork, chorizo, rice, beans, hash browns and a runny prod top. It’s truly everything you’d want to eat before an outside adventure (or after a craft brewery crawl the night before!).

For lunch, swing by Tourist Home All Day Café, a trendy, casual spot located on the side of Flagstaff. This energetic café serves elevated breakfast and lunch bites along side a tempting selection of pastries and sweets.

There are many tasty things to order at Tourist Home All Day Café , but i might highly recommend the Pastrami Sandwich and therefore the Annex Burger. Served on fluffy marble rye slicked with horseradish cheese , the Pastrami Sandwich is full of house-cured pastrami and tangy braised cabbage. Each bite is rich, balanced and keeps you returning for more! The Annex Burger is topped with cheddar, bacon jam, bread and butter pickles and thousand island-ish secret sauce. For both plates, you’ll want to urge fries on the side with a number of Tourist Home All Day Café’s house made ketchup. Just confirm you save room for one (or two or three) of the decadent treats from the pastry case.

Close out each day in Flagstaff with a visit to Criollo Latin Kitchen. You’ll definitely want to order a selection of shared bites, tacos and margarita flight. The Barbacoa Flauta is full of braised beef, onion and potato, then topped with shaved zucchini, avocado crema and chimichurri sauce. The fresh green things on top provide nice contrast to the bold, rich beef within.

Criollo’s Bacon Nachos are over-the-top altogether the proper ways. Warm with melted jack and Oaxacan cheeses, this mound of crunchy tortilla chips is suffering from bacon lardons, black beans, roasted jalapeños, guac and smoky tomato salsa. make certain to invite a number of Criollo’s house-made salsas on the side.

The tacos at Criollo are inventive, yet approachable. The Catfish Taco, a spin on a Baja fish taco, features crispy, beer battered catfish, shredded cabbage, sliced avocado, smoky tomato salsa and a drizzle of ancho crema. The side of pork Taco is full of golden, crispy side of pork sauced with black garlic mojo and spicy chile de arbol salsa. Chopped, fresh cilantro on top adds a note of freshness.

These three spots will offer you a delicious taste of Flagstaff; however, if you’re still hungry for more, you ought to inspect Pizzicletta for wood-fired pizzas and native brews, or Tinderbox Kitchen for craft cocktails and elevated American fare.
