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...

Mandarin

Mandarin

May 1, 2016

I often ask my Davis County brothers to the North to give me some good restaurants to visit for when I happen to make it up there.  I’ve only done 2-3 reviews North of Salt Lake City, so I’m in no way, shape, or form an expert.  When I get the results back, they almost without fail include the Mandarin as a place I absolutely must try.  Well, a few...

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...

  Some times fate leads you to places you may never have discovered otherwise.  Fate was definitely smiling on me this past Saturday.  It was my son’s 4th birthday party which started off with a birthday lunch at Chuck E. Cheese.  Definitely not the culinary experience I was expecting, but what more can you ask for with a 4-year-old?  After a...

Thai Spice Restaurant

Thai Spice Restaurant

Apr 9, 2016

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...

Mar 29, 2016

Here we are in South South Lake getting ready to go into Curry in a Hurry.  The name is what got me here.  I’ve driven by this place often in my time here in Salt Lake City.  We just happened to have a little time to go out to lunch, and we all wanted curry, and we didn’t have a lot of time … so you get where I’m going here....

Dog Haus

New to Sandy, Utah this month is the Dog Haus, which specializes in gourmet dogs, sausages, and burgers with all three served in their trademark King’s Hawaiian buns.  I had a chance to attend their soft opening a few weeks ago.  When it comes to a good dog, we are somewhat limited on our options.  We have Johnny Beef’s in Midvale for higher end...

La Casa de Mole

La Casa de Mole

Jan 21, 2016

Two trips in the last 7 days has me convinced and sold on the greatness of La Casa de Mole.  This is the 3rd restaurant that I have known to occupy this space in Cottonwood Heights, but not because of lack of good food.  Siracusa’s put out a good product when they were there.  If the success of a restaurant was dependent on strictly their food, then La...

  Brighton Ski Resort up Big Cottonwood Canyon is one of my favorites.  My youngest son and I started the year off hitting the slopes.  I of course literally hit the slopes, and often.  I’m not a very good skier.  My son however being a hockey player picked it up right away, and ended up spending most of the day waiting for his old man to either...

Sapa

Sapa

Jan 6, 2016

I’m not late to the party often when it comes to good food in SLC, but I will readily admit when I am.  This is one of those times.  Ever since really getting into the sushi scene in Utah after my visit to Takashi, everyone and their dog has recommended Sapa as being right there neck and neck in terms of sushi quality.  My son loves sushi almost as much...
