Last weekend, I met up with my friends in Arizona for a small weekend road trip adventure where we traveled from Phoenix to Sedona to Page. We all live in different states, so we agreed on Arizona for our little getaway and meeting point. It’s nice to be able to get together every so often and have a group trip, especially when we all live so far away from each other!
Since today is Friday, I wanted my Foodie Friday post to be of all the food we ate while we were on our trip. Let me tell you, it was definitely better than I expected. I often resort to fast food and junk when we go on road trips but there were some spots that were surprisingly delicious and somewhat healthy.
Check them out!
OUTLAW GRILL (Sedona, AZ)
We came to this little spot after our morning hike and we had worked up a good appetite. They had bbq, sandwiches, burgers, and various items. The boyfriend and I decided to share an order of pork shanks (shown below) and a grilled cajun chicken caesar salad. The pork shanks were the highlight of our lunch! They were both crispy and tender at the same time, and dipping it in their house bbq sauce was amazing!!! Meaty goodness!
BLACK COW CAFE (Sedona, AZ)
After lunch, we searched for ice cream spots because several of us were craving it! We found this popular ice cream spot, almost like an old fashion soda fountain, called Black Cow Cafe. When you walk in, you can smell the freshly made waffle cones, and that’s when you know it’s good! I got the malted vanilla ice cream in the waffle bowl. It really hit the spot! Super creamy and delicious!
STATE 48 TAVERN (Page, AZ)
After a long day of driving, we decided to stop by this spot in Page and not expecting too much. I ordered the battered avocado tacos and roasted beet salad. We all also shared the kimchi fries. EVERYTHING was so good! Such a great fusion restaurant that satisfied our hunger!
TORTAS DE FUEGO (Sedona, AZ)
For our last night, we wanted to grab a quick dinner and found this little place. Instead of getting tortas, which is what their known for, we all got different things. I got the trio plate, which gave me a crunchy taco, enchilada, and flauta. What can I say, I love variety! It was pretty good but nothing beats tacos in LA!
