One of the best things Arizona has to offer in the Summer is the amazing Staycation packages at all the fantastic resorts here in AZ!
The Westin Kierland Resort is not only an Amazing resort with an incredible Pool, Golf Course and Spa but it offers some of the best dining experiences in the Valley.
Dinner at Deseo was unlike any other dining experience I have ever had. We sat "Rail"
side, which basically means we were sat right in front of the open kitchen. We were able to see, watch and talk to the Chefs while they prepared all the dishes. The only downside to this as that you want to try each thing they make since it all looks so incredible. Deseo is inspired from the tastes and cuisines of South America, with lots of fresh seafood, exotic flavors and ingredients and the best cuts of meat out there.
I have decided I want to eat my way through their whole Ceviche menu.

Millionaire Tacos- with a yuca shell , lobster, ahi tuna and Japanese Hamachi
Lobster Escabeche- made with sweet, tender northern Lobster, deep fried avacado, chives, garlic chips and sweet ahi
Some of my unexpected favorites were this Virgin Mojito complete with a sugar cane stirrer; the Columbian roll that was a cross between cornbread and a roll ( seriously I am already tracking down a recipe for this one); and the Quinoa soup with toasted quinoa on top ( which I could sprinkle on anything it was so good)!
The special was this Iberico Pork- which is a supreme cut of the pork shoulder from a free roam pig raised on acorns. The meat was sweet, tender and flavorful and was perfectly complemented with the adobo potatoes and chanterelle mushrooms.

Not only did we love our dinner but breakfast was a treat as well. With a choice of items like the Panettone Stuffed French Toast with lemon curd and strawberries.
I know it sounds like the only thing we did was eat but that's not Entirely true! The Westin Kierland has great summer packages and one of them is The Big Chill . Not only do they offer a great deal on the room but also include a dining credit or flow rider experience. During your stay there is so many family fun options, they even had a mini "zoo" for the kids to enjoy.
The great pool, slide, lazy river, splash pad and flow rider; the O.K. corral which offers ping pong, life size chess, basketball and build your own smores. My kids had a blast even in the scorching Arizona heat.
We all can't wait to go back and soak up some more fun and food! Thanks so much Westin Kierland we had an amazing time!
