First Nations Food
Aboriginal cuisine with a modern twist
Though it’s the oldest cooking style in North America, most people are unfamiliar with aboriginal cuisine. But thanks to culinary programs geared towards Native cooking, First Nations restaurants are popping up all over the continent. From bannock to buffalo, these restaurants all feature locally sourced ingredients with a modern twist.
Kai (Chandler, Ariz.)
This high-end restaurant in the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort serves Native American-inspired cuisine like suckling pig torta with mole and desert quail with dried cherry pate. It’s a happening spot, so call ahead for reservations. Want something more casual? Head to Ko’Sin, the resort’s casual bistro for buffalo burgers.
