The Slanted Door

The Slanted Door

Mar 30, 2015

  San Francisco is one of my favorite cities in the entire world, and it’s also one of the most delicious ones.  I’ve already done a few reviews from the Ferry Building near the beginning of the S.F Pier.  There you can find world famous The Slanted Door.  That’s where a buddy of mine and myself went for dinner last month before business...

Laid Back

Laid Back

Mar 29, 2015

  New to Cottonwood Heights is Laid Back, and Hawaiian poke cuisine.  Poke is a typical raw seafood salad often served as an appetizer in Hawaii.  I like to think of it as just all the good stuff often found in sushi, but without it all rolled up. I arrived just a week or so after they opened, so they were letting all of their guests sample the different...

  Coming back from Yellowstone National Park, my family and I stopped off in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and visited Pinky G’s pizzeria.  We had seen them on Guy Fieri’s Diner’s, Drivins, and Dives, and were really excited to give them a try. I didn’t get a chance to try the Abe Frohman that they featured on the show, but I did try this...

    When asked to recommend a great place to stay in Salt Lake City, the Hotel Monaco is near the top of my list.  The location is great.  Located downtown across from the Capitol Theatre, and right near the light rail station, as well as a few blocks away from shopping at City Creek and sight-seeing at Temple Square, any traveler to SLC has loads of...

  Yan’s Kitchen Hunan Cuisine has a great location in San Francisco.  Our family took one of the sigh seeing buses that pick up tourists from Pier 39 as they take folks up past China Town and the financial district, and then on to Golden Gate park and the bridge, and past through the Presidio neighborhood.  We decided to get off on one of the first...

Tin Angel Cafe

Tin Angel Cafe

Mar 15, 2015

    Tin Angel Cafe was recently named by Salt Lake Magazine as one of Utah’s best 25 restaurants.  After I got over being offended that they didn’t consult me, I decided to pay them a visit for lunch.  Verdict? Impressive.  I give them the proverbial thumbs up and back Salt Lake Magazines assessment.  Tin Angel Cafe is among the very best...

Tartine Bakery

Tartine Bakery

Mar 10, 2015

  My first attempt to visit the Tartine Bakery a year ago ended in a miserable failure.  I had about 2 hours until my flight was leaving out of Oakland, and was desperate to find a parking spot outside the bakery.  After several loops around the surrounding roads, and time running out to make my flight, I had to scrap my plans and bail.  Attempt #2 was...

Rich’s Burgers

  Finally tried out Rich’s Burgers in what has become a true foodie hub part of town on 30 E Broadway.  Rich’s is open for lunch and has a gourmet burger menu along with a daily burger of the day special. I went with the Mac & Cheese burger along with some green chile cheese fries.  Let me start with the burger.  Each individual component...
