Hi All. No food expert. Just an expert at eating good food. I saw your post on Atlas Bistro and decided I wanted to join your group as I would love to experience places like that with like minded people from time to time.

Live in Phoenix and my favorite food is POPCORN. I also kill for potato chips. My favorite resto in PHX right now is Pig and Pickle.

Funny, but true story, I recently stopped in a Mexican Seafood resto in PHX called Mariscos Sinaloa. After ordering a dish and sipping on their Michalada, a waitress walked by my table and spilled an entire tray of water and beer on me! After concluding that my cell phone didn't get wet, I politely said, "I guess I'll just have that order to go"! Hahah, the waitresses were mortified. I just sat in the other chair and sipped on my michalada. After assuring them I was fine, they comped my meal, of course and I promised I would return. I did the next week. ;-) getting a tray of water dumped on me wont stop me from seeking out an amazing meal....

Nice to meet u and look fwd to conversations over dinner or lunch soon.

Welcome aboard, Ursula... I just went up to check out Sinaloa a couple of months ago!

Sinaloa - North Phoenix Mariscos

I'd love to hear what else is and isn't good up there. Seemed like a nice little spot from my visit.

Good to have you here, and come on out to grub with the crowd whenever you get a chance :-)

I always like it when someone declares a popular food eaten by all ages to be his or her favorite. For me, it's peanut butter. Have you visited Poppa Maize in Downtown Tempe? It's an interesting concept, although I think that popcorn, like hummus, usually tastes best in its classic preparation without added flavors.

And here I was just about to say my favorite popcorn topping is honey curry butter :-)

(You heat it slowly, whisk it hard, and it takes on a light caramel consistency!)

Oh MY...that sounds awesome! Have never experimented with popcorn toppings. This sounds well worth exploring!

That actually sounds pretty good. I've sometimes experimented with lemon pepper and roasted garlic with olive oil.

Don't know how to include quotes yet.....

Thanks for the welcome!

Yeah, I've eaten popcorn all my life and will continue. Make it in a kettle at home with various oils and my fav topping is paprika and cayenne peppered butter. But I like bacon topped popcorn too and yeah, I drizzle some of the bacon oil on it too. Hehe... The reason working out is a necessity for me.

Look forward to meeting food nerds soon.

Thank you!

Welcome Ursula! As for popcorn, most of you would probably file this under "Gross", but in my hippy-dippy 70's Sedona days (yes, it's true), we made fresh popcorn with diced raw bell peppers, garlic powder and soy sauce. I still crave it now and then, lol.
