Sicilia Mia

Sicilia Mia

Jun 10, 2016

Was driving in  my old stomping ground the other day, and was curious to see what was currently occupying the old spot taken up by Nick and Willys Pizza years ago.  I noticed a new restaurant was there called Sicilia Mia.  Forget all the stereotypes you may have of restaurants in strip malls.  This place is legit and it was fantastic. The dining room itself was...

SLC Provisions

SLC Provisions

Oct 12, 2015

Birthday dinner 2015 took me to SLC Provisions for a dinner and review.  Provisions is in the old Lugano’s building and right in front of one of my favorite new SLC bakeries in The Baking Hive.  Provisions has a nice open dining room, and is kid friendly.  I was mostly impressed with my dinner. Provisions provided us with the token loaf of bread to get...

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,...

Millcreek Cafe & Eggworks

Millcreek Cafe & Eggworks

Jul 11, 2015

  Every once in a while I drive by one of my favorite places and think about the pictures and review that I did there.  One of those places, and one of the best breakfast spots in Salt Lake City is Millcreek Cafe & Eggworks.  I recommend it often and visit it often.  The other day I was scrolling through my blog and tried to locate my review, and COULD...

The Baking Hive

The Baking Hive

Feb 7, 2015

Walking into a new bakery for the first time is one of my favorite moments in life.  When I hear about one being opened, it doesn’t matter where I am, I stop what I’m doing and pay attention.  Just like the dog Doug in the movie “Up” when he detects a squirrel, so do I react with the thought of brownies, cake, or cookies.  That’s...

Nuch’s Pizzeria and Restaurant

Nuch’s Pizzeria and Restaurant

Feb 19, 2014

It was my second attempt to visit Nuch’s and try their pizza.  The first time was after I had lost a ping-pong match to a co-worker (pictured above) and owed him lunch.  Unfortunately I had no idea that Nuch’s isn’t open on Monday’s, so for my readers out there, keep that in mind.  However, you know the ole saying that good things come...

Roots Cafe

Roots Cafe

Jan 17, 2014

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...

I feel the need to set proper expectations before I begin this review.  I understand that I basically only review places I love on this website.  If you have ever seen my womanly figure, it is pretty apparent that I love a LOT of places in Salt Lake City.  So with that said if I were to start rating restaurants on a scale of 1 to 5, then you will probably only...

Per Noir Trattoria

Per Noir Trattoria

Mar 19, 2013

Per Noi Trattoria is a great find in the middle of a large residential area in Sugarhouse.  The inside isn’t anything overly glamorous, just a comfortable, family feel to the restaurant.  Nice enough for date night, but not so fancy where you would feel uncomfortable bringing along the kiddos.  For the quality of the Italian food you get, the prices were...

Millcreek Grill & Bar

Millcreek Grill & Bar

Dec 29, 2012

I paid a visit to the new occupants of this building previously held by Terrapin Station, a BBQ joint, up in Millcreek, Utah.  I found them through Groupon, and have to admit, that I initially thought they were Millcreek Cafe which is further East down the same road.  It was not until I was driving to lunch that I realized this was an entirely new place I have...
