John’s Pork Roast

John’s Pork Roast

Dec 6, 2014

  I definitely wanted to treat my first trip to the Mecca of the cheesesteak, Philadelphia, PA with preparation and reverence.  I had of course heard of all the stories around Pat’s and Geno’s as they are the founding fathers of the cheesesteak religion, but after doing my homework and consulting with some Philly locals, I learned that the best...

Katz’s Delicatessen

Dec 4, 2014

  The “World Famous” moniker is often over-used by restaurants.  These guys have a claim on that title, and they don’t need Buddy the Elf to anoint them either.  There are two things that you have to first accept and then get over fast if you are going to enjoy Katz’s.  First, the place is going to be crazy busy.  You receive a...

  Cheese!  Sweet glorious, fantastic gooey cheese!  Walking down the Ferry Market building I passed along dozens of artisan food vendors, but this is the one that grabbed my attention.  I witnessed a gal in the kitchen preparing a huge platter of cheese sandwiches to be grilled.  There was no measuring or portion cups she was using.  Just a gobs and gobs,...

New in Sandy, Utah is Togo’s Sandwiches!  Togo’s is a sandwich shop that started in San Jose, California back in 1971, and now they have opened doors just south of Scheels Sporting Goods.  In fact the area is full of restaurants that have huge followings in other states but are somewhat new to Utah.  In the same parking lot Rita’s Frozen Ice...

I had a co-worker tell me about this bistro about a mile from my office up in Holladay, but also made me swear not to go visit without him.  Upon looking up La Sage Bistro on Urbanspoon, I found something that was borderline ridiculous.  There have been 247 votes for La Sage Bistro and a whopping 97% have approved.  That’s officially the highest approval...

There is a new deli in town that has taken over the old space left by Johnnie Beefs over in the Fast & Easy gas station market.  The interesting thing about the name of the new place, T-pedos, is that “pedos” is the Spanish word for “farts”.  So for the Hispanic community, the deli would be called T-Farts.  All names aside though,...

The crown jewel, and the cliché of clichés is the New Year’s Resolution of wanting to lose weight and eat healthier.  I have to admit that I had the same fleeting thought run through my mind this year.  I’ve been doing a lot more cooking at home, and when I eat my self prepared food it is with a sense of pride and accomplishment.  I recently read an...

Eggs in the City

Aug 28, 2013

I have to admit that when I first saw the name of this restaurant “Eggs in the City” I immediately thought of the Billy Idol classic “Hot in the City”.  As a matter of fact you should probably listen to this while you read this review.  Just as Billy Idol is always awesome, anytime you have the word “eggs” in the title of a...

Two basic questions that I ask myself when going out to eat are 1. How much time do I have to eat?  and 2. How much do I want to spend?  If you are looking for both quick service and affordable prices, then look no further than Oh Mai Vietnamese Sandwich Kitchen. There seems to be a wide range of sandwich choices and prices in Salt Lake City.  On one side you...
