Blue Poblano Taqueria

Apr 10, 2016

  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...

La Casa de Mole

La Casa de Mole

Jan 21, 2016

Two trips in the last 7 days has me convinced and sold on the greatness of La Casa de Mole.  This is the 3rd restaurant that I have known to occupy this space in Cottonwood Heights, but not because of lack of good food.  Siracusa’s put out a good product when they were there.  If the success of a restaurant was dependent on strictly their food, then La...

Chapulin

Chapulin

Jan 1, 2016

Chapulín was certainly one of the coolest restaurants I visited in Mexico City.  You walk up a winding flat pathway to a restaurant that is as well decorated as the food tastes good.  Even the restrooms are cool, there are rooms that seem to be hidden in the walls, everything was a great experience here.  Chapulín is located in the middle of the...

Mercado Roma

Mercado Roma

Oct 24, 2015

Mercado Roma is a premium space in the Roma area of Mexico City jammed packed with high end food vendors.  I have seen something similar in London at Street Feasts at Dalston Yard, and to be honest, I don’t know why more cities don’t have this.  The closest thing that Salt Lake City has is when they have food truck gatherings.  This is not your...

After visiting Mexico for the first time last month and in my first month logging roughly 2 weeks of eating.  I have a ton of great eating experiences to share and literally hundreds of photos.  I literally fasted for a week before going to Mexico because Mexican cooking is amazing and wanted to leave as much room as literally possible to eat all the tacos as...

Hector’s Mexican Food

Hector’s Mexican Food

Sep 6, 2015

Hector’s Mexican food up in Millcreek on 3300 South has been doing Mexican food for quite a while albeit not always under the same name.  Hector’s was cool way before Beto’s and Beto’s knock-offs starting appearing like mosquitos all over the valley.  If you want to same great flavors without the unfortunately post-lunch side effects,...

Alamexo

Alamexo

Feb 21, 2015

  Alamexo is the new Mexican kitchen on State St. and Gallivan Plaza that replaced ZY Restaurant a few years ago.  I really loved ZY and was sad to see it close.  When Alamexo opened, I read a few reviews on-line that said the food was expensive and just so-so.  I decided to wait a bit before giving it a try.  That wait finally came to an end last night....
