Thai Orchid

May 30, 2016

Thai Orchid remained hidden from me for the entire time I have worked at Instructure.  Its located in Cottonwood Heights in a small strip mall by The Store and Snyder’s Meats.  I aimlessly went out for lunch and found them so I decided to give them a try. There was no one in the restaurant when I arrived at 12:15, which was a bad sign.  I went ahead and...

Was on my way to a softball game last month at Sandy’s Quarry Bend Park.  I was coming from Old Mill Corporate Center and instead of taking probably the quickest route of I-215 to I-15, I decided to take some back roads and go through Murray and Sandy.  This was done on purpose as it gives me a chance to look for new yummy places to try.  This is exactly...

I was having one of those days, cruising down Ft. Union looking for something new for lunch.  Of course there are hundreds of options on that road, and finding Thai Spice was a bit of a trick.  I must have drove by it countless times in the past.  It was a red brick strip shopping center round 850 East in Midvale.  It caught the corner of my eye, and since I...

Doing a review on Thai food is always a challenge, because I like Thai food and I have enjoyed to a certain degree everywhere I have gone in Salt Lake City.  With that said, while I haven’t been to a place that I wouldn’t give the time of day again to, I also have not visited a place that was head and shoulders above the rest.  With Thai food for...

I’ve got a personal good luck streak going when visiting Thai places.  It seems like I have enjoyed them all.  Simply Thai is a gem tucked away in a strip mall just south of South Towne Center in Draper.  There are two flavors that seem to come in every Thai place I’ve visited and that is curry and coconut.  Simply Thai does them both justice. I...

From Ogden down to Provo there are 81 Thai restaurants to choose from.  I feel fortunate to have found this place.  Located just East of Village Baker in Sandy, this place is a real find for those seeking not only great tasting Thai food, but also a great lunch time value.  I ordered the lunch special and paid just $7 dollars.  By the time I was done with my...

Yes that is a golden kitty cat with its hand waiving back and forth as you go inside Mai Thai restaurant in South Jordan.  I normally am not a cat person.  I don’t hate cats like Greg Focker, I’m just more of a dog person.  I can say that this cat made me smile though.  Somehow it reminded me of the movie Gremlins in the beginning scene when the kid...

We are getting really close for my pick for best St. George restaurant.  And believe me, I had a real internal struggle when choosing between my last two choices.  I could really go 1-2 or 2-1 on these, and either way you will come out a winner.  In the end the place I ended up choosing as my favorite we went there 3 nights in a row, because it was so good. ...

Having worked at the Gateway mall for almost the past 10 years, i’ve had the opportunity to eat and every one of the food offerings there from the food court to the restaurants. There are a few solid choices if you are there for dinner and a movie or if you are going to a Jazz game. However, if you want to go where all the truly exceptional places are,...
