Fat Kid Mac n Cheese

Fat Kid Mac n Cheese

Apr 24, 2015

I’ve been waiting for this food truck my entire life.  I treat mac n cheese with reverence, it has played a huge part of my culinary life.  Growing up, the Kraft Mac N Cheese got me through most after school afternoons.  I wouldn’t even bother pouring it into a bowl.  All I had to do was take the nuclear orange gold powder and combine it with some...

Apr 18, 2015

  I’ve driven by La Cai noodle house more times than I can remember.  My mother in law lives in the Liberty Park area, so I turn down the road between the restaurant and the Audi dealership 2-3 times a week.  Although they have upgraded the building and expanded once in the 10 years or so I’ve driven by the building, the one thing that...

The Egg and I

The Egg and I

Apr 12, 2015

  My own personal mission to find the world’s best breakfast burrito is a critical one.  But such as life, it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.  I won’t stop until I try them all, and even when I do, I still won’t stop.  I gave The Egg and I a try the last week for the first time.  They have several Utah...

On my very first trip to Puerto Rico, my food mission was clear.  Find the best mofongos on the island and eat them every chance I could get.  Mofongos are delicious plantain bananas mashed up and lightly fried, and then served with seafood, steak, or chicken.  They often come with either a criolla sauce or garlic sauce.  Most of the Puerto Rican places we...

Yummy Yummy wasn’t my first choice for lunch on my recent trip to San Francisco.  I was in route to try the Chowzter North American winner for best Asian dish next door at San Tung.  The award was for the dry fried chicken wings there.  However, of all the weird days to be closed, they were closed on Wednesday, so I was forced to call a quick audible and...

The Slanted Door

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...

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 types of...

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 options...

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 stops of...
