Food and shopping

As an ASU student, you’ll have plenty of food and shopping choices in the Phoenix area, as well as international options. Here are some things you’ll want to check once you’re here.

Taste of Phoenix

Phoenix has nearly every type of food imaginable. You’ll be living in a city where you can dive into authentic Mexican cuisine one day and dine at a nationally recognized pizza restaurant the next. Or if something a little less traditional is your thing, try the sushi fusion restaurant. The Valley of the Sun is also home to plenty of excellent mom-and-pop style ice cream parlors and local coffee shops to visit, as well.

Check out some restaurants our current ASU students have recommended as their favorite using our ASU Phoenix map.
