We found one more restaurant that was on Food Network star Guy Fieri’s radar when he ate his way across Tucson in January: Chef Alisah’s Bosnian restaurant at 5931 N. Oracle Road.
Chef/owner Ahmet Alisah says Fieri and his “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” camera crew spent nearly 20 hours over two days at his restaurant for the “Seafood & Savory” episode debuting April 27; check local listings for times.
Among the dishes he prepared was a special lamb shank.
"Mr. Guy Fieri loved it," Alisah wrote in an email.
Fieri is featuring at least six Tucson restaurants in the latest season of his popular show, where he takes viewers into the kitchen of local restaurants to see how the dish is prepared. The others are Renee’s Organic Oven at 7065 E. Tanque Verde Road, Zemam’s at 2731 E. Broadway, Cafe Tumerico at 2526 E. Sixth St., and Rocco’s Little Chicago Pizzeria, 2707 E. Broadway.
The episode featuring Inca’s Peruvian Cuisine at 6878 E. Sunrise Drive debuts on Friday, April 6.
