Taco Taco

Dec 15, 2014

  There are so many subtle nuances that make these tacos great, I don’t even know where to begin.  Let’s start with the name, Taco Taco.  That is two times the word Taco.  I immediately thought of other instances in advertising or pop culture where a word was doubled up for added emphasis.  Doctor Doctor comes to mind from the Thompson Twins....

John’s Pork Roast

John’s Pork Roast

Dec 6, 2014

  I definitely wanted to treat my first trip to the Mecca of the cheesesteak, Philadelphia, PA with preparation and reverence.  I had of course heard of all the stories around Pat’s and Geno’s as they are the founding fathers of the cheesesteak religion, but after doing my homework and consulting with some Philly locals, I learned that the best...

Katz’s Delicatessen

Katz’s Delicatessen

Dec 4, 2014

  The “World Famous” moniker is often over-used by restaurants.  These guys have a claim on that title, and they don’t need Buddy the Elf to anoint them either.  There are two things that you have to first accept and then get over fast if you are going to enjoy Katz’s.  First, the place is going to be crazy busy.  You receive a...

New York Take & Bake Pizza

New York Take & Bake Pizza

Dec 3, 2014

  New Take and Bake pizza place up in the Cottonwood Heights / Holladay area.  I found them on Groupon and went in for a pizza to take home.  Had a nice conversation with the owner.  Besides their pizza offering, they also salads and pastas along with various sauce options to take with you.  Fans of Michelangelo will be familiar with it, as that is where...

Graeter’s Ice Cream

Graeter’s Ice Cream

Dec 1, 2014

I have good news and bad news.  The good news is I found some of the most unusual, creamy, and best tasting ice cream around.  The bad news is now it is virtually impossible for me to ever want to try anything else ever again.  Graeters has been making ice cream since 1870 using the french pot process .  It really is worth a read on how they make the stuff....

Tosh’s Ramen

Tosh’s Ramen

Nov 18, 2014

  There is no question that there is a buzz around Tosh’s Ramen over on State St. ever since the former Naked Fish ramen chef left to start his own restaurant.  My first attempt to visit was foiled due to them not being open on Mondays so don’t make the same mistake.  It also appears that the early issues with actually running out of food have...

St. Elmo’s Steakhouse

St. Elmo’s Steakhouse

  My final night in Indianapolis and it had to be the best for last.  Leading up to this night, I had done some brief research on great Indy food spots, but it turns out my visit coincided with a food legend that did all the work for me.  Alton Brown had sent out a tweet the night before on where to go eat dinner in Indianapolis.  Over the half the...

Bakersfield

Bakersfield

Nov 10, 2014

  Night number 2 of my Indianapolis trip, which also just so happened to fall on Monday Night when the Colts were playing the Giants.  It was either Kilroy’s or Bakersfield for dinner.  Bakersfield was the closest to our conference and hotel and thus won out.  Bakersfield was cool, hip little joint specializing in drinks and tacos.  I of course like...

Yats

Nov 9, 2014

  Before my review, let me give you a little backstory with how I managed to find Yats.  For the past year I’ve been taking pictures of my food with a broken iPhone 4.  I was excited to try the iPhone 6 Plus, but my renewal 2 year anniversary came 3 days after the release, so I was unable to preorder the phone.  Due to demand I couldn’t find...
