Last Saturday’s episode of the Great Food Good Neighbors (GFGN) TV show was historic, fun and filled with deliciousness! The show airs on AZTV-7 (Cox 13) on Saturday’s at 11:30 a.m. The show featured…
Chicago Hamburger Company – You can find authentic Chicago grub at this joint. Bob Pappanduros is the owner of this Arcadia District favorite which he opened in 1989. The menu includes the classics like Chicago style Vienna Beef hot dogs topped with neon green relish and sport peppers, Italian Beef Sandwiches with Giardiniera Peppers, Windy City Sliders complete with Düsseldorf mustard (a German mustard with a little horseradish in it) and over-the-top milkshakes…but you can also find salads and healthier sandwiches as well. When you go don’t forget to check out the “Wall of Chicago Hamburger Company T-Shirts Around the World” with pictures of customers wearing their beloved Chicago Hamburger Company T-Shirt in different places around the world…7 continents are represented! As a “Good Neighbor” they hold an annual fundraiser where 100% of the money they make goes to the 100 Club of Arizona which helps the families of firefighters and police officers who are injured or killed in the line of duty.
Taco Guild – This award-winning restaurant has great food and drink in a unique historic atmosphere. Located in Phoenix, the Taco Guild resides in a former church that was built in the early 1900s. The high ceilings and stained-glass windows provide a rare setting. Take the time to explore the artifacts…some of which were found in a time capsule from 1893! Steven Micheletti is the CEO and tequila aficionado who knows everything about the 183 tequilas available with the most expensive rare bottle costing $1,200. The tacos have won them the award for Best Beef Taco at the Arizona Taco Festival. Some of their taco offerings include these little lovelies… Al Pastor Pork: grilled pineapple, jalapeño bacon, pickled red onion, Guild Chicken: annatto braised chicken, grilled corn, red bean pico, avocado, Cotija cheese, Chipotle Cherry Steak tacos with poblano straws, chile aïoli, Bleu cheese, Molida Lamb: Creole aïoli, Bleu cheese, sweet potato hay.
Kim Hanna’s Camping For Foodies – Making Fish with Wine Sauce in Foil Packets and a side of Couscous at the campsite. Admitting to fishing and catching nothing but a little bit of peacefulness, Kim buys her fish at her favorite grocery store for this camp recipe! Cooking in foil packets over the campfire is typical so adding a foodie touch…this fish steams with fresh veggies, herbs and a splash of wine. It is served with a side of couscous which is layered with complimentary flavors and herbs to make a complete camp meal. As a “Good Neighbor” Kim donates a portion of her proceeds to World Vision-Building a Better World for Children.
Tune in next week for another action-packed episode!
