The Urban Thang
Brand new Urban Phoenix Café located at the crossroads of 36 St and E Indian School Rd in the Gaslamp Complex has opened bringing you a relaxed, funky concept that is reinventing the way Arizonians eat breakfast and lunch. Inspired by Mexican ingredients, the menu is filled with trail-blazing options for everyone. Urban Phoenix offers high end, locally roasted specialty espresso drinks, natural cane sugar sodas, and organic fresh brewed teas.
The interior sets the scene for this nod to the City of Phoenix, with a fresh new take on breakfast and lunch. Street art and murals by local artists, hip hop music and an industrial feel to the décor pay homage to the growth and evolution of our Chefs’ native city.
Chef / Owners Steven Contreras (previously of Base Pizzeria, Federal pizza, Left Coast Burrito Co.) and Keri Frazier (previous owner of Left Coast Burrito Co., Left Coast Catering, contestant on Food Network’s Great Food Truck Race, and a Top Culinary Innovator – AZ Republic) have developed a menu featuring tacos, burritos and “rad plates” for breakfast and lunch which reimagine Mexican fusion by using modern cooking techniques and the freshest local products Arizona has to offer. Their inventive use of unique ingredients (including Hot Cheetos) showcases their creativity and passion for delicious, approachable food. Soon to be known for their innovative Breakfast Tacos & Burritos, the team is dedicated to rethinking typical boring breakfast & lunch options.
Chefs Steven and Keri welcome all customers with dietary restrictions. The vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options offered have been invented with as much thought and care as the rest of the menu.
Taco ‘Two’sday is going to be a popular day to get your 2 for 1 chef’s choice of the day tacos.
