“A Tucson Vegan Gem”
Reviewed 3 December 2011

If you're looking for quality vegetarian cuisine in Tucson, this little gem will satisfy your tastes. Hidden in a nondescript, little building near downtown, which you enter from the back, the restaurant exudes a colorful, cozy, artsy atmosphere.
Meals vary, according to the whims of the chef, one of two sisters, who own the restaurant. Recently, we enjoyed the four-course Thanksgiving Dinner. Every meal starts with a unique juice and a small plate of dip and raw veggies. Following that, is a soup, and then a salad with a different juice. This time the entree choices were a baked, stuffed acorn squash or sliced portabello mushroom with mashed potato and gravy. Desserts consisted of three choices, from which we chose the tasty apple crisp, topped with a vegan whipped creme.
The Tasteful Kitchen is only open for dinner on certain days and reservations are advised. Enjoy!
