We think it's time to put Phoenix on the map when it comes to the most ubiquitous form of self-expression these days — the emoji. Here are 10 emoji every Phoenix food scenester needs on his or her phone. And, yes, we've got your taco.
Chef Chris Bianco: What better says, "Hey, let's get pizza!" than the head of our best-known chef. (Accompany it with the wood-fired pizza above.)
Prickly Pear Margarita: If there are two things Phoenix has a lot of, it's prickly pear cactus — and tequila.
Sonoran Hot Dog: The hometown favorite.
Ghost Pepper: If you like it hot, here's how to say so.
Chimichanga: Some say it was invented at Macayo's in Phoenix, others at El Charro in Tucson. We say, "Dibs!"
Guacamole: Guac is practically a food group around here.
Fry Bread: Follow this one with a bunch of broken-hearts to indicate the resulting clogged arteries.
