Foodies follow ‘Highroads’ to Sierra Vista for world cuisine

SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. — Long known as a melting pot of cultures, Sierra Vista is now recognized for its international flair when it comes to gastronomic delights. With a smattering of cuisine from across the globe, Sierra Vista’s restaurant scene caught the attention of “Highroads” magazine writer Dina Mishev.

Mishev, who lives in Jackson, Wyo., took a spin around Sierra Vista’s eateries, then penned an article for “Highroads,” the bimonthly magazine produced for AAA’s Southwest membership. The article appeared in the September/October 2013 issue.

Sierra Vista, with deep military roots, can partially credit its varied palate to the international experiences of U.S. Army Soldiers who travel abroad then bring their penchant for exotic cuisine to southeast Arizona. Sierra Vista boasts nearly 25 ethnic eateries that serve authentic international cuisine, from sushi to schnitzel, and pizza to go.

Many of Sierra Vista’s restaurants are locally owned and serve meals prepared by chefs who emigrated from native lands, bringing traditional culinary methods with them. Mishev remarks that the sushi chefs at Tanuki Sushi Bar were all trained in Okinawa, while Peacock owner and chef Hiep Wingate uses a deft hand when preparing Vietnamese favorites.

Whether one is in search of spicy kimchee, Old World German breads, or pizza baked in a wood-fired oven, Sierra Vista’s ethnic variety can fit the bill, and for far less than a round-trip ticket overseas.

Plan a culinary tour around Sierra Vista’s 2013 Restaurant Week, featuring 17 different restaurants in Sierra Vista and Hereford. In addition to American fare, enjoy dining at a discount at seven locally-owned ethnic restaurants and save up to 20 percent.

Sierra Vista Restaurant Week will be held Sept. 30 through Oct. 6. For information about participating restaurants and event details, contact the Sierra Vista Visitor Center at 417.6960, or go to VisitSierraVistaAZ.com.
