NOBANA15640 North Hayden Road, Scottsdale
NOBANA specializes in Asian-inspired fare, meaning Thai, Korean, and Vietnamese dishes. On top of rice bowls, wraps, and salads, the kitchen offers some more complicated orders like curry and pho.

Carnitas Way1976 West Southern Avenue, Mesa
2534 North Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale
Carnitas Way specializes in California-style burritos with all-natural, hormone-free carnitas. Carnitas Way serves food from kitchens out of Los Sombreros Mexican Restaurant in south Scottsdale and the now-closed La Casa de Juana in Mesa. One nice touch: Burritos are named after famous beach locales like Newport, Baja, Kapalua, and Laguna. There are also burrito bowls and salads.
Ghost Street Asian Taqueria9397 East Shea Boulevard, #125, Scottsdale
With a fitting name for a ghost kitchen, Ghost Street Asian Taqueria serves Asian-infused tacos that include ingredients like tempura chicken or soy-braised duck with hoisin sauce. Slinging food from the same location as Ling & Louie’s Asian Bar and Grill in central Scottsdale, Ghost Street also offers items like carne asada sushi rolls and taquito dumplings.
Bonus: Phoenix Ghost Kitchen21442 North Central Avenue
This one is more for restaurants themselves. Phoenix Ghost Kitchen is a "new cloud kitchen concept," which means it offers space for eateries looking to rent an industrial kitchen to create dishes for delivery only. Translation: Restaurants can cook out of turn-key kitchen space and send food via UberEats, Postmates, GrubHub, etc. In addition to the stovetops, Phoenix Ghost Kitchen can also arrange food trucks (with maintenance) for rent.
