Tlaquepaque & El Rincon 2021
One of the places you must see while visiting Sedona, AZ, is Tlaquepaque (Tia-keh-pah-keh). The name means "best of everything" and was built in the 1970's. Located near Oak Creek with flourishing vegetation all around its grounds, Tlaquepaque has the look of being transported somewhere in Europe, perhaps Italy. Inside are many interesting shops, galleries, restaurants, with cobble-stoned walkways and arched entryways with vines growing all over the stucco walls.
Sitting in the back area in Tlaquepaque Village is the El Rincon Restaurante Mexicano. Their food is a mixture of Arizona Style and traditional Mexican food. You will see how the Navajo/Hopi lifestyle is swayed in each meal. They are know for their delicious El Rincon Chimichangas which are wrapped in a sopapilla masa and stuffed with either beef, chicken or tiger shrimp. If you can find room in your tummy, they also offer dessert chimichangas with either chocolate, cherry or apple fillings. My favorite meal when I go there is the spinach cream cheese enchilada. OMG, it is so good! Website: http://www.elrinconrestaurant.com
