The Fry Bread House, 1003 E Indian School Rd, Phoenix, AZ. Also one location in Mesa, AZ.

Fried dough. Fried bread dough! FRIED! What is not to love and admire about this?! Absolutely nothing, especially after experiencing this Native American goodness for myself!

I walked in and had no idea what to order besides just fried bread. I had a feeling that no matter what I had, it was going to be spectacular. Thankfully, the sweet girl at the counter helped me along the way to make decisions. They have a nice size menu, so I appreciated the guidance. For certain, I wanted the Powdered Sugar and Honey Fry Bread ( my sweet tooth always wins), along with a couple of savory fry bread tacos to try. After ordering at the counter, you get your drinks, find a table, and patiently wait for the party about to happen in your mouth.

Upon delivery, I was blown away at how gigantic these tacos were. Dang! Not your taco chain-type size. Yeow! The green chili beef taco was bursting with flavor and impressive, but wow, a bit too spicy for me. The chorizo taco was a perfect amount of spice and kick. The fry bread itself it AH-MAZ-ING! Although the fry bread tacos were huge, there was enough room for dessert, and it didn’t disappoint! Sweet but subtle. I could eat this every morning with my coffee. Really. At was an awesome finish to a freaking fantastic meal. I can’t wait to go back and try more!

If you are in the Phoenix area, you MUST stop in and experience this Native American treat.

Hours: Mon – Thurs 10:00am -8:00pm, Fri and Sat 10:00am – 9:00pm, CLOSED SUNDAYS.

Mad Girl Eats Perk Eatery in Scottsdale

image

Perk Eatery, 6501 E Greenway Pkwy, #159, Scottsdale, AZ.

Up early with the sun in the beautiful desert oasis of dreamy Scottsdale, I wanted an inventive, hearty, and flavorful breakfast to start my busy day. One glance at Perk Eatery’s menu and I set my GPS to quickest route.

On their Special-of-the-Day board, I hit the jackpot with their Wine Country French Toast. Thick pieces of French toast stuffed with brie cheese, topped with roasted red grapes and red wine rosemary syrup. Jealous?! Ha! Beautiful beautiful breakfast dish. Perfect with my fresh hot coffee. Me being me, I did toss on a tad of maple syrup…I like it gooey loaded 😉 That was a special treat I hope to have once again.

While there I had to taste test an egg dish. In keeping with the theme of being in the Southwest, desert, cowboys, bad boys, I was intrigued by the ingredients of The Outlaw Scramble…get a load of this. Three eggs, chopped ham, bacon, sausage, sautéed onions, green peppers all smothered with cheddar cheese and topped with cilantro jalapeno sauce. OMG. Hefty but dang, the flavors were incredible edible and not too fiery spicy. I’m a sauce lover and the cilantro jalapeno that topped this magnificent mega meal was one I couldn’t get enough of. Deeeee-licious!

Fab menu for breakfast and lunch. Can’t go wrong here, using as much fresh, local and organic foods as possible.

As seen on Guy Fieri’s Food Network show, Diner’s, Drive-In’s and Dives.

In a nice shopping center with free lot parking. Yay! Hours: 6:30am-3pm daily.
