Padrinos

Padrinos

Jan 15, 2017

I’m not from Southern Florida, and am no where close to what you would call an expert when it comes to Cuban cuisine or where to find the best spots.  However, I know good food when I eat it, and Padrino’s was good food.  I count Cuban food as some of the best in the world, the Cuban sandwich, dirty rice, ropa vieja, carne frita.  I love it all. We...

Chile Tepin

Chile Tepin

Jan 8, 2017

I was excited to see a new Mexican restaurant open on the corner of 200 South and 30o West.  SLC has a few “great” Mexican restaurants in places like Red Iguana, Alamexo, and Frida Bistro, but what seems like hundreds of pretty average ones.  We can add Chile Tepin to the list of great ones.  The location is fantastic, just a block a way from the...

Quintonil

Quintonil

Quintonil in the Polanco neighborhood of Mexico City was my second visit to a restaurant on the World’s Greatest 50 list.  (the other one Pujol, is also in Mexico City).  Of all of the great restaurants on the list there are obviously some very expensive places, as well as places that are really hard to get into.  Quintonil is one of the cheapest if not...

Pujol

I’m writing this review as my first review of a restaurant on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.  It ended up being my first of 2 visits to the list during my week long business trip in Mexico City.  My visit was during some of the final months of Pujol‘s location in the gastronomic Polanco area of Mexico City.  They will be moving to a...

Pig City BBQ

Pig City BBQ

Nov 5, 2016

The good Lord put the pig on Earth for one reason in my opinion, and that was to be smoked and slathered with delicious BBQ sauce.  There are lots of places in these great United States to obtain such delicious food.  Texas, Caroline, Memphis to name a few.  Utah isn’t necessarily known as one of the great barbecue states.  Luckily for us however, folks...

Sweet Lake Biscuits and Limeade

Sweet Lake Biscuits and Limeade

Sep 28, 2016

Sweet Lake Biscuits and Gravy.  With a name like that you can’t help but try them out.  Biscuits and Gravy are the ultimate breakfast comfort food and who doesn’t like a good artisan limeade with unique and fun flavor combinations?  I first heard SLB&G by some pictures that were floating around the interwebs.  I’m easily enticed by...

Comfort Bowl

Comfort Bowl

Sep 11, 2016

A new food truck that has definitely captured my attention and on my personal radar for places to eat is the Comfort Bowl food truck.  I have tried them twice now and each time have been absolutely impressed with the variety of flavor, portion size, and overall quality of their food truck. There is a lot going on in this bowl.  First of all, in this bowl which...

Located in the Midvale shopping district right in front of the Century Movie Theatres is Tusami Restaurant.  A few colleagues from out of the country were visiting our offices so we decided to pay them a visit during the lunch hour.  We found the restaurant very busy and bustling, but still were seating right away and got great service the entire trip.  I would...

Manolis

Manolis

Aug 14, 2016

Manoli’s Greek is somewhat new to the Liberty Park area of downtown.  It is located across the street from the legendary Forage restaurant as well as Pig and Jelly Jar restaurant.  Its a beautiful building with open windows and vaulted ceilings and open kitchen on the interior.  It looks great from the street at night.  It also as it turns out has been a...

Franck’s Angel Cafe

Franck’s Angel Cafe

Jul 9, 2016

Angel’s Cafe is located not far from Brighton High School in suburban Holladay, Utah.  I found it by chance, as it is off the somewhat beaten path in Ft. Union Blvd.  The front of the building appears as if it has gone through some changes over the years.  Although the restaurant is reported on Urbanspoon and other sites as being Franck’s Angel...
