phx - whats the best thing you ate in the last week?
the new red chili on the breakfast menu at maizie's. big chunks of beef, simmered in a tomato based sauce that's sweet on the first bite, but by the time you finish the bite your lips are tingling from the spice. the heat comes out of nowhere and lingers.
served with 3 eggs on top, its a rich, tasty, hangover cure par excellance.
anyone else have one fabulous thing in the last week? :)
I really enjoyed the ricotta gnocchi with sweet spicy sausage ragu at PastaBar--much needed comfort food after a day of busting my hump as a tequila festival volunteer on Saturday. :-)
M had PastaBar's cavatelli with fava bean puree, whole fava beans, and guanciale, which I actually liked better as leftovers the next day than I did fresh out of the pan.

Wednesday night at Tapino - seared foie gras with fresh roasted peaches and Arizona lavender honey on buttery toasted brioche. My friend Jen, who up until now only liked foie gras torchon, is finally a convert of seared foie.

Probably not the type of answer you're looking for but Sprouts has Alaskan Halibut on sale right now for $12.99. Picked some up to grill last night and it was delicious served with a lemon vinaigrette made from mixed herbs from our garden. Will have to pick some more up before next Wed while it's still on sale.
