Arizona Team-Themed Treats at Sapporo are a Hit

Spring training fever is catching, and Sapporo Scottsdale is catering to sports fans with Arizona team-themed rolls and one ultra-juicy cocktail.

If you haven’t checked out the creative libations and flavorful rolls at Sapporo Scottsdale, you’re missing out on a hotspot that’s already received the stamp of approval from such well-known pros as former Phoenix Suns star Amar’e Stoudemire, Diamondbacks pitcher Micah Owings, former MLB center fielder Ken Griffey Jr. and others.

Diamondbacks, Cardinals and Suns fans, as well as other sports enthusiasts can head to Sapporo Scottsdale for a chic atmosphere and a menu of contemporary Pan-Asian specialties, plus these fun team-inspired treats:

  • The Diamondback Roll with fresh salmon, crab mix, and sautéed onions, topped with shrimp
  • The Phoenix Suns’-inspired Pineapple Martini (pictured) with housemade pineapple-infused Svedka Vodka, fresh pineapple purée and an edible purple orchid
  • The Phoenix Roll with eel, shrimp, crab mix, kaiware, cucumber, avocado and tobiko

They all sound like major scores to us.

Bonus: Sapporo now offers a convenient complimentary neighborhood shuttle, available to guests before and after meals from 4 p.m. to close daily; opt for pick-up or drop-off at a number of locations within a 10-mile radius of the restaurant, including Old Town Scottsdale, Salt River Fields, Westin Kierland Resort & Spa or Kierland Commons. (The 14-person shuttle can even be reserved in advance. Contact the restaurant for more information.)

Sapporo Scottsdale is located at 14344 N. Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale 480.607.1114
