Cute litte Deli in Tempe. Tasty food, daily menu.
Posted on 08 / 06 / 2012
Being a recent vegetarian, I'm always looking for new diggs to eat. I saw Desert Roots popup on HappyCow, and thought I'd give it a try. Overall, a cute little down-to-earth deli on Mill, with a small but tasty made-from-scratch menu which changes daily. No in-house seating, but there is a sizable outdoor seating area; there are cooling mist-ers, but in the summer you may want to just grab-n-go.
I had the Thai wrap with honey mustard potato salad, and I wasn't disappointed. The wrap was loaded with rice, beans, greens, and a touch of peanut sauce. The potato salad was not your run-of-the-mill either, with tasty bits of carrot and celery mixed in.
Since the website is still under construction, I was told to check them out on Facebook for the current menu: https://www.facebook.com/DesertRootsKitchen
Overall, a win for us vegetarians/vegans, with gluten and dairy free choices as well. Thumbs up!
