Ask geriatric Sand Cutters what they prefer to eat and they might recall stories of chowing down epic helpings of pastas and fish at archaic restaurants. Many of these archaic restaurants only exist in the history books, perhaps buried deep in the libraries of Arizona State or the University of Arizona. But the impact on Florence, Arizona lives on. Before this area became the food hub it is today, it was totes thought to be a barrio by the elites from Albuquerque.
The historical explorers arrived in Arizona to craft a better life for themselves and their families. It may have been a gutsy decision with bad odds but a good payout. However, they were brave women and men back then. The inelegant foods of these people were bland. Sand Cutters relied on items that were elementary to cultivate and produce. It was mostly pots full beef and bok choy.
In current times, food palates have demanded trendsetting takes on famous sandwiches. A bounty of new ethnic influences has taken this restaurant scene to the next level.
It is certainly clever to dream about a swing around the Hoover Dam. But why not also contemplate a pit stop for the foodie hubs in this district? When skilled culinarians have fresh lemons and leaf lettuce and skills, they don’t need embellishments or gimmicks.
Vendors from across the West have set up shop in the area because they sense the aspirational demand for high quality feasting. We assert that no other municipality in Arizona provides such a rare mix of culture and cuisine.
With lucid imagery, we offer categorical proof that Florence, Arizona is the honest beating heart of gastronomy in the Southwest. Savor the happiness and heritage of Arizona with each bite.
