    Phoenix restaurant recommendations

    Hi all,

    Tomorrow, I'm boarding a plane and heading to Phoenix, AZ. I'm travelling there to visit my brother and his family. They live in Gilbert, AZ. Can anyone over that way recommend any good restaurants we should try while we're there? Our group will have 5 adults and 5 children ranging from 2-11 years old. Half of the group is vegan, so if you know of good places that cater to plant AND meat eaters, that's great. We will not always be sharing meals with the vegans in the group, so list any type of restaurant. I love to try new regional foods!

    Well, not sure as to the mix you mention - but if you like beer try Santan or Arizona Wilderness breweries as they both are in Gilbert.

    We made it back from Arizona. We amazingly found several restaurants that catered to all of our tastes. NYPD Pizza, Joe's Farm Grill and Pita Jungle. Pita Jungle was my favorite.

    We stayed at Arizona Grand Resort. Now that I have become a pool water chemistry nerd, I feel like I can comment on the pool water at the resort. The resort has Oasis Water park that guests can use. The water there seemed to be well cared for. No off smells, but the water was pretty salty tasting. I REALLY wanted a tour of the behind the scenes stuff for the water park...pumps, filters, etc. I'm sure that qualifies me as a major pool nerd.

    Near our room was a smaller pool. Being around young children pretty much guarantees getting splashed in the face. My eyes burned from the first splash. After I left the pool, I had to wear glasses instead of my usual contacts for the rest of that day. I'm guessing there was a pH problem in that pool. There was a bit of chlorine odor too. So, I'll say that pool needed some attention.

    The entire resort area around the pool and the water itself was kept extremely clean. The property was also exceptionally clean. I would definitely stay there again.

    It was a great trip and it was great to see my family. I am so glad to be home, but I really miss the sun.

    The stinging eyes and chlorne smell sounds like high CCs more than anything.
