Fonda Margarita

Oct 21, 2015

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....

Oh Mexico

Oh Mexico

Jan 25, 2015

Day one in Miami, after all of my research online on best breakfast spots in the area, my plan was to make my way to Espandola Street and try out A La Folie Cafe, however when I arrived, they were shooting a movie or T.V show in front of the eatery, and they had just lost their electricity.  I decided to check out a place close by, and Oh Mexico was the winner....

Taco Taco

Taco Taco

Dec 15, 2014

  There are so many subtle nuances that make these tacos great, I don’t even know where to begin.  Let’s start with the name, Taco Taco.  That is two times the word Taco.  I immediately thought of other instances in advertising or pop culture where a word was doubled up for added emphasis.  Doctor Doctor comes to mind from the Thompson Twins....

Mi Ranchito Grill

Mi Ranchito Grill

May 15, 2014

  A quick look at Urbanspoon’s list of Mexican cuisine restaurants in Salt Lake City and Provo gives me about 540 results back.  This makes for some major competition for those with a hankering for ice-cold horchata and a big plate of enchiladas or carne asada.  Mi Ranchito has been doing business in Utah for 30 years now.  I love Mexican food, and...

El Habanero

El Habanero

Apr 3, 2014

Drive by this place and blink, and you may just well miss it.  El Habanero has been in this Magna neighborhood for as long as I can remember, and I have only been there a hand full of times.  It isn’t Lone Star Taqueria or Red Iguana, but the food is pretty good quality, and it has carved out a nice little niche for surrounding locals with a hankering for...

Tres Hombres

Tres Hombres

Mar 26, 2014

If you work or live in the Millcreek, Utah area, you are familiar with this area and building.  I’ve driven by it a hundred times, and have seen the Tres Hombres sign on top.  Of all the Mexican restaurants in Salt Lake City, Tres Hombres perhaps has the coolest space and building with the most history. (Blue Iguana is in that mix too)  The building has...

El Menos

El Menos

Oct 20, 2013

El Menos is a Mexican restaurant that pretty much everything about it, screamed Mexican restaurant, and that is not a bad thing.  First of all walking into the place, there was a little stand outside the restaurant that sold mango and chili, and Elotes.  The elote is a corn on the cob on a stick, covered with mayonnaise, cotija cheese, and chili pepper, and...

Los Cucos Mexican Cafe

Los Cucos Mexican Cafe

Sep 23, 2013

  According to my wife Los Cucos in Colombia is another term for underwear.  Luckily this isn’t a Colombian restaurant, but a Mexican one.  I didn’t find any dirty underwear in here at all.  It wasn’t the best Mexican I’ve had in Salt Lake, but it was clean, the service was outstanding, and the food was still above average with the...
