Nine Dishes from Metro Phoenix Restaurants We'd Love to Make at Home (Recipes, Please -- Hint, Hint)

Light, creamy, packed with juicy berry flavor -- and healthier than regular cheesecake too!

RAW Berry Cheesecake from Pomegranate Café

Pomegranate Café makes a lot of incredible -- and typically very healthy -- lunch and dinner items that we want the recipes for, but if we can only get one, we have to know what goes into the RAW berry cheesecake (or any of the cheesecakes, for that matter). We know the crust is made from dates, nuts, and coconut and that cashews are somehow included, but how does all that turn into anything like cheesecake? And how do they jam so much fruit flavor into the bite-size portions? We have too many questions and not enough answers.

Flygande Jakob from Beaver Choice

This dish it too wacky for us to understand how to recreate it at home, so a recipe is definitely required. We'll come up with excuses to visit Beaver Choice all day, but since this dish has a special wait time of 45 minutes, it's really just easier if we can make it at home. This curry-seasoned Swedish casserole combines chicken, bananas, peanuts, and mashed potatoes in a sour cream chili sauce. It's so sweet, salty, exotic, and downright odd that you have to taste it to believe it.

Mrs. White's Fried Chicken

By nature, comfort food is typically made at home. But there's one reason -- one lady, to be exact -- who gets us out of the house when we want fried chicken: Mrs. White. Both white and dark meats are available at Mrs. White's Golden Rule, and no matter which one you choose, it's going to be a steaming, succulent, crispy golden brown masterpiece. There must be a clue to her consistency. Whether it's the batter or the method or a little bit of both, we want to have it.

Can we add the green chili cornbread casserole from Fuego Bistro???



"Pork Belly Buns from Nobuo Teeter House"


Google Gua Bao.  It's a Taiwanese dish, and though Fukuda's isn't strictly traditional, it's close enough that you ought to be able to tweak it to match from there.
