I promised to share more noods, so here is one of the sexiest ones I’ve ever shot.

I came to Arizona to experience the food, but left with an even greater appreciation for the people. Phoenix, Tucson, and Scottsdale really impressed me with their cuisine. But it was the staff, chefs, and locals who made this trip so incredibly memorable. I’m thankful that I got to share this experience with some truly talented and awesome people. And a very special thank you to @visit_arizona for inviting me and @scottsdaleariz and @balloonsaz for ending this trip with a bang!
