Curry in a Hurry

Curry in a Hurry

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....

European Pizza Deli

European Pizza Deli

Dec 22, 2015

European Pizza Deli is one of those hidden places that is truly hidden.  This part of town somewhere between South Salt Lake and West Valley isn’t exactly known as the culinary mecca of Salt Lake City.  I certainly don’t drag Redwood Rd. between 2100 South and 3500 South looking for a quick bite to eat.  Options are scarce.  This place, while...

Sabor Latino

Sabor Latino

Jul 14, 2014

Last week I checked out with my family Sabor Latino with my wife and in-laws.  Sabor Latino or “Latin Flavor” has typical dishes from Mexico, Salvador, Colombia, and Venezuela and is located in South Salt Lake on State St.  It shares the same building with some business that has exotic dancing, and “Parking in the Rear”  Don’t pay...

Mi Ranchito Grill

Mi Ranchito Grill

May 15, 2014

  A quick look at Urbanspoon’s list of Mexican cuisine restaurants in Salt Lake City and Provo gives me about 540 results back.  This makes for some major competition for those with a hankering for ice-cold horchata and a big plate of enchiladas or carne asada.  Mi Ranchito has been doing business in Utah for 30 years now.  I love Mexican food, and...

Ho Mei BBQ

Ho Mei BBQ

You will have to travel 6,000 miles to visit to visit Beijing, China.  That is “big” China I’m talking about, not “little” China down on State Street in Salt Lake City.  There is a little commercial area just south of the intersection of State and 3300 South, where you can go to get some good ole’ fashion Chinese BBQ.  I went...

Del Mar Al Lago

  Del Mar al Lago might be on the top of the “best places you have never been” list, but it won’t be there long.  Word is definitely getting out on this Peruvian Seafood joint, just across the street from RC Willeys in South Salt Lake.  This review has a couple firsts for me, my first Peruvian place that I’ve really fallen in love...

My Sugar’s Donut Shopp

My Sugar’s Donut Shopp

Sep 6, 2013

There are some days when you wake up and think about a donut, and you get that thought in your mind that you need to have one, nothing is going to stop you.  This was one of those days for me, but it had to be a quality donut, and something that was on my way to work.  I didn’t have time to drift into Salt Lake to visit Banbury Cross.  Just a few days...

Fresh Donut & Deli

Fresh Donut & Deli

Jun 10, 2013

Last Friday was National Donut Day around the country.  You gotta love it when you are trying to lose some weight, and come into the office only to find your desk filled with fritters.  It was fritter Friday with the account relationship management team, and as resident food critic, it was my duty to sample each fritter.  My contribution to this lovely bunch...

Oh Mai Vietnamese Sandwich Kitchen

Oh Mai Vietnamese Sandwich Kitchen

Jun 5, 2013

Two basic questions that I ask myself when going out to eat are 1. How much time do I have to eat?  and 2. How much do I want to spend?  If you are looking for both quick service and affordable prices, then look no further than Oh Mai Vietnamese Sandwich Kitchen. There seems to be a wide range of sandwich choices and prices in Salt Lake City.  On one side you...

Town & Country Market

Town & Country Market

Jul 16, 2012

I’m pretty sure that if you are not from South Salt Lake, there is no way you would ever expect to find this place.  I work not too far away, and only found it through a mutual friend, but Town and Country market is home to some great tasting sandwiches, that are VERY well proportioned and absurdly affordable prices.  Downtown residents may point to Grove...
