Welcome to the 4th annual “Best Of” list for my food blog. 2015 has been an interesting year. It marked the first time I probably did more reviews outside the state of Utah than I did inside. Before 2015 I had only visited one other country other than the United States, and this year alone I visited 10 different countries in 3 different continents. In my “real job” I’m an account manager over Latin America and have had the chance to visit many places there. Also my wife and I celebrated 15 years of marriage this year, so we decided to celebrate with a trip to Europe starting it off with the FoodieHub Global Awards in London. It’s been a fantastic year and I know 2016 will be great also.
The format of this best of list will be the same as previous years. This list isn’t indicative what my all-time favorite Utah places are, it is just a list of only places I visited for the first time this year. I’ll include past winners in each category as I’ve done previously, and then give a top 3 places I’ve had this year to finish it all off.
|Best American / Steakhouse|
|Best Food Truck
(2014 Winner Cupbop)
|Best Baked Goods/Desserts|
|Best South American|
And that brings us to my top three dishes for 2015 here in the great state of Utah. I may pick 3 different places on a different night, but someone has to win because I don’t believe in ties. My three favorite places tried in 2015 are: Alamexo, Bambara, and Red Food Truck. I didn’t think anyone could knock off Red Iguana or Frida Bistro as my favorite Mexican place in SLC, but Alamexo has done just that. Bambara I get a spot in the top three simply because in addition to a brilliant dinner menu, their brunch menu has some of the best breakfast dishes I’ve ever tasted. Finally Red Food Truck sandwiches just have to be tasted to be believed. Until next year!
