As a final farewell to the place I’ve grown to call home, I thought today I would share some of my favorite eateries in the East Valley, because y’all know I’m a self-proclaimed foodie. Although I’m obviously a little biased to the locale since this is the side of the valley I’ve called my ‘hood, I went ahead and also shared some restaurants based in Phoenix.
Of course this is just a small slice of the amazing restaurants in the East Valley (and again, some gems in Phoenix), but hopefully it will be helpful if you’re ever in the area. I would love to hear some of your favorite spots from both the East and West valleys! Please feel free to share some of your most loved spots in the comments below for others to use as a great reference!
