Where to eat cactus in phoenix

Hi All,

Where can I eat cactus in phoenix? I am coming from san diego, so if there is anything on Interstate 8 to phoenix as well, I would be interested.

I am looking to try arizona regional food - cactus, nuts/seeds, fruits/veggies, etc

      La Tolteca always has cactus on the menu.

      Two Hippies doesn't have it all the time, but often features it as a special.

      La Tolteca
      1205 E Van Buren St, Phoenix, AZ 85006

      Two Hippies Beach House
