Currently, Aspasia’s opening hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, inviting guests to embark on a journey through the heart of the Mediterranean. The menu boasts an alluring array of signature dishes, including delectable falafel, succulent chicken shawarma, and lamb kebabs prepared from fresh. For those with a sweet tooth, it also offers puddings from the same region. Furthermore, Aspasia caters to diverse dietary preferences by offering an extensive selection of vegan-friendly options

Since opening, Aspasia has enjoyed critical success among Tucson locals. Currently, it has a 5/5 star rating on Google across 32 reviews. Even for top restaurants, achieving such a score is no easy task. Perhaps this is due to bringing a different kind of cuisine to Tucson which typically relies on US and Mexican food. Regardless, it looks like the future is bright for this eatery.
