If we could remain financially stable and travel around the world, we'd do it in a heart beat and never look back. Sure, we like taking photos and visiting exotic locales, but the real appeal is in the food discoveries we could make. Fusion cuisine doesn't get any better than fusing yourself and your memories to the very spot where the food you're eating was grown. 

Sadly our culinary travel plans don't extend much further than the grocery store. That's why we feel so fortunate to have an eatery like Sapna Cafe around. Owner and cook Ana Borrajo has created a menu full of economical dishes inspired by her travels around the world. The Calcutta Egg Roll sounds delicious! But don't take our word for it. See what Food Critic Michele Laudig has to say about the joint:

"Depending on your appetite, you could eat quesadillas and gypsy stew either as appetizers or main dishes. (On a hungry day, I'd gobble up both.) My lightly toasted quesadilla was filled with creamy melted blue cheese and tangy tomato marmalade, while the stew -- thick with butternut squash, onion, green beans, white beans, pears, chickpeas, and cilantro -- was chunky and flavorful, so good I cleaned my bowl with a piece of bread."...full story

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
