Food & Drink Looking for recommendation for Japanese restaurants

15 Upvotes

I'd like to find an authentic Japanese restaurant like Hiro on 90th Street. Our family is now too big to be seated there, and they don't take reservations so there's no guarantee we'd get seating together for even eight people. It can be anywhere in the valley.

The requirements are that the purpose of the place is to serve Japanese food and sake, and that the chef is Japanese. It needs to be traditional, and have rotating seasonal fish. In January I'd expect bonito, maybe ankimo, maybe shishamo. It can't be a trendy sushi bar. The waitresses serve in the Japanese style (they don't come to your table unless you call them).

More requirements: the food isn't Asian fusion, it isn't Korean. Possibly the menu is confusing because it's in Japanese with terse English translations. We order randomly various items at various times.

These restaurants don't meet the requirements: Bei, Zu Izakaya, Ra, Kyoto.

Any price range is fine.

Things to do Hiking With Pre-Teens. Camelback OK?

8 Upvotes

In town and wanted to go hiking. 9, 11 and 12 year old kids. They’re active and athletic. Handled Lookout Mountain ok.

Camelback says it’s not for beginners. Thoughts on if some trails would be ok.

Or any tips on other areas. Wanted to hike for two hours, hour up and hour down.

Thanks!

Food & Drink Frank & Lupe's Poblano Cream Chicken Enchiladas

22 Upvotes

Hello, good people of Scottsdale. I am reaching out to you from Bellingham, Washington and I'm hungry. Back in 2014 or so, I had the best enchilada's of my life and I've been dreaming of them ever since. Somehow, by a miracle or something (mostly it was my wife's help, actually), we figured out that they were the Poblano Cream Chicken Enchiladas from Frank & Lupe's.

Here's how they are described on the website menu:

3 rolled enchiladas with cream of poblano sauce, beans, rice, and avocado chicken on top.

I've looked up some similar-sounding recipes, but I don't really know if they are the same or if I'm missing a secret ingredient or anything. Does anyone have any tips or intel?

These seem kinda close.... maybe?

Thanks for your help!

Living here Just came back from a 3 day conference at the JW Marriott and noticed the number of attractive people in Scottsdale in general, both men and women. Has this level of attractiveness existed all throughout Scottsdale's history?

Hey all. Just as the title says, I was blown away at the number of attractive people in Scottsdale, specifically Paradise Valley, the community of McCormick Ranch, patrons at Fashion Square, downtown Phoenix, etc. Has this always been the case? Most are well dressed and simply look good.
