Porky’s Poutine

Porky’s Poutine

Jun 25, 2016

Porky’s Poutine food truck takes comfort food and adds a few extra Canadian layers of comfort to it.  I won’t mention here how many calories each layer has, let’s just call it “extra comfort” for now.  They take hand cut french fries, and then drench it in gravy, and top it off with some cheese curds before ultimately finishing it...

Blind Taste Test Event and Gift Card Giveaway

Blind Taste Test Event and Gift Card Giveaway

Jun 20, 2016

Last Saturday I was invited to take part in a bloggers blind food tasting event at the Gateway Mall.  Granted, you don’t need your eyes to taste food, but there is always the chance a prankster is going to put something sinister in your hand to taste like Vegemite or some other un-godly thing.  Luckily for me, this wasn’t part of a hidden camera...

Sicilia Mia

Was driving in  my old stomping ground the other day, and was curious to see what was currently occupying the old spot taken up by Nick and Willys Pizza years ago.  I noticed a new restaurant was there called Sicilia Mia.  Forget all the stereotypes you may have of restaurants in strip malls.  This place is legit and it was fantastic. The dining room itself was...

Thai Orchid

Thai Orchid remained hidden from me for the entire time I have worked at Instructure.  Its located in Cottonwood Heights in a small strip mall by The Store and Snyder’s Meats.  I aimlessly went out for lunch and found them so I decided to give them a try. There was no one in the restaurant when I arrived at 12:15, which was a bad sign.  I went ahead and...

Was on my way to a softball game last month at Sandy’s Quarry Bend Park.  I was coming from Old Mill Corporate Center and instead of taking probably the quickest route of I-215 to I-15, I decided to take some back roads and go through Murray and Sandy.  This was done on purpose as it gives me a chance to look for new yummy places to try.  This is exactly...

Mandarin

Mandarin

I often ask my Davis County brothers to the North to give me some good restaurants to visit for when I happen to make it up there.  I’ve only done 2-3 reviews North of Salt Lake City, so I’m in no way, shape, or form an expert.  When I get the results back, they almost without fail include the Mandarin as a place I absolutely must try.  Well, a few...

Kitchen Eighty Eight

Apr 26, 2016

I love pretty much everything about food trucks.  I like how they offer comfort food from around the globe, and usually focus in on just a few great menu items that they know how to do really well.  It takes a lot of the guess-work of searching through a menu to find the true speciality of the house.  Kitchen Eighty Eight while a food truck, however breaks the...

Last weekend my wife had a girls night so I took the kids out for dinner.  I happened to be in the Draper area and we were driving around looking for a place to eat.  To clarify, we were driving around for Dad to find a “new” place to eat, so he could review it.  My kids were desperate for the usual, but they know better when it comes to eating out...

  Some times fate leads you to places you may never have discovered otherwise.  Fate was definitely smiling on me this past Saturday.  It was my son’s 4th birthday party which started off with a birthday lunch at Chuck E. Cheese.  Definitely not the culinary experience I was expecting, but what more can you ask for with a 4-year-old?  After a...
