What'd you eat for dinner last night? Luke's of Chicago- Italian Combo Sandwich. About as authentic as you can get in AZ.

Favorite food: Fresh Mex--burritos, tacos, etc. Must include fresh guacamole.

Least favorite food: Anything too cheesy (I'm somewhat lactose intolerant).

Favorite dessert: Banana pudding from Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen. It comes in a huge mason jar and has chunks of banana, strawberry, vanilla wafers and graham cracker. Outta control.

Favorite local restaurant and meal to order there: Gallo Blanco--Taco Platters. This little gem off of Indian School Road and 3rd Avenue is attached to the Clarendon. I recommend starting off with the chips and guac. The guacamole has fresh fruit mixed in, as well as some type of delicious white cheese on top. You can order tacos a la carte...chicken, steak, shrimp, carnitas or fish of the day. You can't go wrong, mix and match FTW.

Favorite local bar and cocktail to order there: Shady's--Bombay Sapphire and tonic. I'm a gin drinkin' man.

Favorite thing to cook at home: Grilling--steaks, chicken, burgers, etc. Nothing beats pool and barbecue, especially this time of year.

Favorite memory involving food: Massive food fight in high school cafeteria. No food item was spared.

Recipe or food tip to share: If you add green chiles to anything, it is officially Southwest dining.
