    Spring Training in Scottsdale

    Spring Training is upon us in the desert and devoted fans from all over the country head to the Valley of the Sun. Since 1947, baseball teams have been coming to various parts of Arizona, including Scottsdale and Mesa, for Spring training. Visitors experience the beauty of the dessert and warmer weather while hoping to catch their favorite players during breaks and warm-ups for an autograph or even a selfie.  Scottsdale alone is home to three Major League Baseball teams:  San Francisco Giants, Colorado Rockies and Arizona’s own – the Arizona Diamondbacks.

    Downtown Scottsdale, is a hot spot for tourists, especially during Spring Training. The San Francisco Giants, 2015 World Series Champions, play ball at the Scottsdale Stadium within walking distance of Scottsdale Road and Main Street.  While hanging out in Downtown Scottsdale, otherwise known as “Oldtown”, fans can experience a lot of what Arizona has to offer including art galleries, a beautiful waterfront stroll, nightlife, specialty stores and boutiques.

    Arizona fans don’t have to go far from Phoenix to catch the team – The Arizona Diamondbacks can be found at their Spring Training home at Salt River Fields. Something unique about this stadium is that it also houses the Colorado Rockies.

    Ling & Louie’s is also approximately 20 minutes from Sloan Park, in Mesa. Sloan Park is home the home of the 2016 World Champion Cubs and Cubs fans have been waiting years to be able to say that! (Parent tip – there is an awesome playground like no other for kids nearby that they will love and can burn off some energy before the game).

    Knowing that Louie is a huge baseball that just never quite made it to the big leagues – he did make it to the big leagues of American Comfort food with these not boring dishes.   We’ve chosen some great “American Comfort” food picks we think you’ll enjoy before or after the game (with an ice cold beer, of course)!

    Loaded Sliders. You’ll feel as if you’ve stolen 2nd and 3rd base with this choice. Three sliders are filled with tender sliced beef, bleu cheese and onions in a garlic-ginger soy sauce, topped with bacon, lettuce and tomato, served with garlic-parmesan fries. Pair it up with a San Tan Brewing Hefeweizen!

    Firecracker Chicken Tacos Ready for a little spice? Three tacos with wok’d chicken, bleu cheese, chili sauce, cabbage and Asian salsa. It’s always fun to watch the fireworks with a beer, why not try our Firecracker Chicken tacos with a cold Louie’s Pale Ale, aka Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale?

    Next up to bat is the Big Burger in Little China. This take on a burger is intense. Starting with a marinated Wagyu beef patty topped with candied bacon, cucumber salad, Chinese BBQ sauce and spicy aioli, served with garlic-parmesan fries.   Pair this up with a Ling’s Lager (Session Lager, Oregon) and you’ll have felt like you’ve hit a homerun!  Louie would approve.

    You can find the entire menu online!

     

    National Noodle Month

    National Noodle Month is around the corner again! And here at Ling & Louie’s, we are prepared to celebrate and indulge all March long with an exclusive Noodle Month menu! We’ve come up with creatively envisioned noodle dishes that tie together our East-meets-West heritage and we think you’re going to love it as much as we do!

    For starters, the Shrimp and Mango Salad; quite the combination! Garnished with herbs and peanuts and a splash of miso-sesame vinaigrette, we also tossed some yaki soba noodles for an added touch.

    Next, our wide array of entrees is sure to soothe your rumbling tummies! This year, we are proudly wokin’ up Louie’s Green Curry Macaroni & Cheese to help ease you into the exotic flavors of the Far East! This dishes seamlessly combines the comfort of homemade Mac & Cheese with a touch of spice from green curry and richness from coconut milk.

    If you love duck as much as we do, you’ll love our Beijing Duck Noodles! For Noodle Month, we’re slowly braising duck legs until they are fall-off-the-bone tender and stir-frying the succulent meat with yaki soba noodles and fresh vegetables in Ling’s secret sweet and spicy sauce.

    For the adventurous souls out there, we’ve got your back. We brought back The Crying Dragon just for you! Tender sliced beef wok’d with udon noodles, broccoli, mushrooms and a special concoction of chilies to spice things up. It is said that The Crying Dragon is so spicy, it’ll light a dragon’s mouth on fire!

    We are also fans of the finer things in life and we want you to experience that on your visit to Ling and Louie’s! We have carefully selected 3 wines that perfectly with our dishes, all from our partners at Copper Cane Wines & Provisions:

    Valentine’s Day Menu Scottsdale

    Valentine’s Day is a popular holiday for many, it’s a day to honor loved ones whether sweethearts, friends, spouse, significant others, teachers, parents, children or anyone close special in life.

     

    In the 19th Century, the very first Valentine’s Card was made with paper lace by Esther Howland of Massachusetts and soon after became a long standing tradition, changing every year as the years passed.
    Still today, thoughtful cards, roses and chocolate are among the most popular gifts to give on Valentine’s Day, along with flowers and jewelry. It’s also common in many schools for students to exchange cute cards and trinkets with friends and adorn favorite teachers with chocolate and flowers by admiring students.

     

    No matter who that special someone is in your life, a sweet hand written card along with a Ling & Louie’s gift card is always a kind gesture without all the sugar!
