Our last meal in Sedona was a late lunch and of course, it turned out to be the best restaurant we found during our two week trip.
Yes Martin, this is a food filled post.
Perched on top of a hill, the Mariposa Grille had some great views. (Of rocks.)
Mariposa means butterfly in Spanish, and they featured prominently in the decor at this Latin themed beauty.
Views (And rocks! Did you see the rocks?) aside..
It was a large…
And rather impressive place.
I mean hey, check out that door.
It’s made of rocks!
There was live music with a Spanish guitar, and more beautiful views.
I ordered a few Caipirinhas… the national drink of Brazil.
Just to get in the proper mood and spirit of the place.
And then on the advice of the waiter, we tried the Yuca fries.
Not to be confused with Yucca… which apparently tastes like soap… the Yuca were too die for!
To be honest, I had no idea what they were at that point.
But had I Googled this Yuca meme beforehand?
I most assuredly would have passed.
Lunch for me was the Funghi Sublime. And sublime it was.
Scottsdale Burger Battle Judges’s Choice Winner 2018 ~ Smothered in sauteed Mushrooms, finished with imported Truffle Cheese and Truffle Dijonnaise
That burger positively melted in my mouth and was expertly cooked.
My husband ordered the Senor Fish, and was not disappointed either.
Pan-Fried and Seasoned with their House Rub, Lemon-Caper Aioli, and Shredded Romaine, on a Whole Grain Bun accompanied by 3 Seed Coleslaw.
This was an upscale South American restaurant with Latin inspired cuisine, and everything was served on the most wonderful plates. (Rocks! They were made from rocks!) I wish we’d found it sooner and been able to go back for a full dinner. I’m sure it would have been marvelous.
How upscale you ask?
There was some interesting artwork hanging on the walls…
Made with some rather expensive rocks.
And they were all for sale.
Ya gotta love ’em.
But maybe not that much.
