Fiore Wood Fired Pizza

Jul 3, 2015

Fiore Wood Fired Pizza recently did a catering event for my company.  There are food trucks and then there are food palaces on wheels.  These guys have kicked up their presentation up a notch.  The truck looks like the folks on American Chopper got a hold of it, and after a few hours of making modifications this was the end result.  Turns out the pizza was...

Who can take a sunrise Sprinkle it with dew cover it in choc’late and a miracle or two The Candy Man Oh the Candy Man can The Candy Man can ‘Cause he mixes it with love And makes the world taste good The lyrics even today generate an emotional response, I have goose bumps just thinking about it.  The famous scene from the original Willy Wonka and...

Bleu Bistro has both local and national blues acts including just recently John Nemeth, who recently won an award for best...

Harry’s Mongolian BBQ

Harry’s Mongolian BBQ

Apr 27, 2015

I love spring time and I love food trucks.  It allows food businesses to really focus in on the few items they do really well instead of filling up a menu full of items that may not be their best offering.  Having a mobile truck allows a chef the luxury of keeping their stock and inventory down to a minimum.  I love standing out in the sun, walking up to a...

Fat Kid Mac n Cheese

Fat Kid Mac n Cheese

Apr 24, 2015

I’ve been waiting for this food truck my entire life.  I treat mac n cheese with reverence, it has played a huge part of my culinary life.  Growing up, the Kraft Mac N Cheese got me through most after school afternoons.  I wouldn’t even bother pouring it into a bowl.  All I had to do was take the nuclear orange gold powder and combine it with some...

  I’ve driven by La Cai noodle house more times than I can remember.  My mother in law lives in the Liberty Park area, so I turn down the road between the restaurant and the Audi dealership 2-3 times a week.  Although they have upgraded the building and expanded once in the 10 years or so I’ve driven by the building, the one thing that...

  When asked to recommend a great place to stay in Salt Lake City, the Hotel Monaco is near the top of my list.  The location is great.  Located downtown across from the Capitol Theatre, and right near the light rail station, as well as a few blocks away from shopping at City Creek and sight-seeing at Temple Square, any traveler to SLC has loads of options...

Tin Angel Cafe

  Tin Angel Cafe was recently named by Salt Lake Magazine as one of Utah’s best 25 restaurants.  After I got over being offended that they didn’t consult me, I decided to pay them a visit for lunch.  Verdict? Impressive.  I give them the proverbial thumbs up and back Salt Lake Magazines assessment.  Tin Angel Cafe is among the very best you can...

Finally tried out Rich’s Burgers in what has become a true foodie hub part of town on 30 E Broadway.  Rich’s is open for lunch and has a gourmet burger menu along with a daily burger of the day special. I went with the Mac & Cheese burger along with some green chile cheese fries.  Let me start with the burger.  Each individual component of the...

From Scratch

Feb 24, 2015

I feel pretty excited about some of the restaurants I’ve been able to check off my ever growing “need to visit” list.  From Scratch just South of the Gallivan Center was one of them. Getting there and parking was a breeze for a downtown restaurant, there is a parking garage just around the corner East of the restaurant, so you don’t have...
