Pastries N Chaat

Apr 20, 2016

Last weekend my wife had a girls night so I took the kids out for dinner.  I happened to be in the Draper area and we were driving around looking for a place to eat.  To clarify, we were driving around for Dad to find a “new” place to eat, so he could review it.  My kids were desperate for the usual, but they know better when it comes to eating out...

Oak Wood Fire Kitchen

Oak Wood Fire Kitchen

Feb 10, 2015

  Oak Wood Fire Kitchen is a new Draper restaurant in the strip mall area of 12300 South and 700 East.  Dining in Draper has been a head scratcher for me for quite a while.  That head scratcher problem is started to go away, and the answer for great eating in Draper is coming more and more into focus with Oak Wood Fire Kitchen. For starters I’m going...

  Even though I’ve nearing 200 reviews in the Salt Lake Valley, I still feel very much like a Draper novice.  Recently my cousins attended a wedding reception in the area and asked me for some dinner recommendations.  I really had to scratch my head with this one, and to be honest, it bothered me.  One of my favorite bakeries is in the area with Bake...

Wasabi

Wasabi

Jul 9, 2014

  Found a fantastic place in Draper for sushi, right at Wasabi just off of 12300 South.  Finding it can be a bit of a tricky due to that horrible mess that is the intersection of State and 12300.  If you have ever driven by Goodwood BBQ, Wasabi is just behind it due North.  Every Tuesday and Wednesday nights they run sushi specials where you can get...

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...

Bake 360

Sep 1, 2013

All due respect to some of my favorite bakeries in Salt Lake City, bakeries like Tulie, Glaus, Gourmandise, and Les Madelines, but Bake 360 might just be my new favorite.  Lately my wife has been a tougher food critic than myself, I think she forgets who the professional food eater is in the family. 🙂  But with Bake 360, the passion fruit creme koeing aman,...

Located in the Soda Springs area of Daybreak is Cafe Bella Rue.  This cafe has been here for a few years, but just recently changed to local ownership.  They now have Utah’s largest selection of Italian gelato along with an expanded menu of sandwich, pizza, soup, and salad choices.  Cafe Bella Rue is in a really nice area of South Jordan.  Due East of the...

Jun 11, 2012

This review of Teri-Yaki Grill is perhaps one the most long-overdue reviews in the history of this blog.  This should of been one of my first ever reviews.  Teri-Yaki Grill and I have quite a history together.  When I first moved to Utah as a permanent resident in 2000, I worked as a customer service agent at GE Capital over in Taylorsville.  Over the next 5...

Penny Ann’s Cafe

Penny Ann’s Cafe

Mar 18, 2012

I was scrolling through last week’s Groupon offering and one stood out for Penny Ann’s Cafe.  It had a picture of tasty looking sandwich and was $6 dollars for $12 dollars worth of food.  It was well worth the purchase, because I now have a new awesome diner to add to FoodRadar.  I set off during my lunch hour to find Penny Ann’s.  It was a...
