Carlos’ Kitchen

Carlos’ Kitchen

Mar 2, 2015

If you have lived in West Valley or Magna for any amount of time in the last 10 years then you will probably recognize this sign.  I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I have driven by Carlos Kitchen 2 in the past year.  It is located right off of 3500 South just West of Harmons and some car dealerships. I visited with probably lowest...

Puerto Sagua

Puerto Sagua

Feb 1, 2015

  Here we are at the last stop of my Miami trip with legendary international salesman of the year Matt Kennedy.  Puerto Sagua has been around for a long, long, long time folks.  I’m not talking Miami Vice times, dial it all the way back to pre-Scarface times.  Since 1962 Puerto Sagua has been serving Cuban cuisine like the Cuban sandwich, and of...

  Monserrate is one of Bogotá’s most well-known and visible land marks.  At 10,340 feet you have a great view of the city’s 9 million inhabitants.  The top of the mountain is accessible by one of the steepest cable cars I’ve ever been.  Built in the 1950’s by Swiss engineers, it almost feels like taking an elevator up to the top....

Sabor Latino

Jul 14, 2014

Last week I checked out with my family Sabor Latino with my wife and in-laws.  Sabor Latino or “Latin Flavor” has typical dishes from Mexico, Salvador, Colombia, and Venezuela and is located in South Salt Lake on State St.  It shares the same building with some business that has exotic dancing, and “Parking in the Rear”  Don’t pay...

  Del Mar al Lago might be on the top of the “best places you have never been” list, but it won’t be there long.  Word is definitely getting out on this Peruvian Seafood joint, just across the street from RC Willeys in South Salt Lake.  This review has a couple firsts for me, my first Peruvian place that I’ve really fallen in love...

Tushar

Tushar

Do you want amazing Brazilian grilled meats, delicious salads, and exotic juices, but don’t feel like paying $50 dollars downtown to get it?  Then you should try the new Tushar Brazilian Express in South Jordan.  The staff was amazing, the space was clean and quiet, and the food was delicious.  My group tried everything from the beef, chicken and pork to...

Salcita

Salcita

Jul 13, 2013

It doesn’t look like much from the street.  Salcita is one of those restaurants that might be skipped by passing cars.  There have probably been several different restaurants to call this place home, the building itself looks like it has seen a thing or two in its existence, but it is places like this that I really enjoy finding and sharing with others....

Adobos Caribbean Grill

Adobos Caribbean Grill

Mar 16, 2013

Adobos Caribbean Grill is a great place for anyone looking for something a little different from the normal American fare.  This place has some delicious food with some unique ingredients.  Great tasting drinks, and awesome “mofongos” which we will get to later.  You can find them over Union Square Plaza on the corner of 9400 South and 700 East....

There are certain countries and regions of the world that have strong associations with certain foods.  If I say Mexican, you may immediately think tacos and burritos.  If I Chinese, you may think fried rice.  If I say Italian, you think spaghetti.  Colombia has arepas, Argentina has milanesa, Japan has sushi.  Every culture has food that is synonymous with...

Andinitas

Some of you may have wondered what is that thing I’m eating on my blog main page.  It’s called an arepa and it’s awesome!!  One of the best things to come out of Colombia along with my wife Monica, Shakira, and Sofia Vergara.  (Monica is #1, and Arepas are #2, the other two a distant 3rd  Okay story time.  Ever since I have known my wife, my...
