Dessert Bites

Apr 12, 2014

I had a chance to stop by the Dessert Bites booth at the SLC Winter Farmer’s Market last Saturday to try some of owner Travis Cloyd’s homemade hand crafted desserts.  Travis uses all natural ingredients, and locally sources products in his creations, and they are delicious! Of of the staple products of Dessert Bites is the macaron.  They had a few...

Blue Plate Diner

Blue Plate Diner

Apr 9, 2014

After close to 200 reviews and 3 years of blogging, I have finally made it for breakfast at one of Salt Lake City’s renowned dining landmarks; Blue Plate Diner!  Yes, the breakfast was pretty dang good! The Blue Plate Diner is located just off of 2100 South going East towards Foothill Blvd.  You can find parking off the street or there is a lot just North...

Banzai Teppan Yaki

Banzai Teppan Yaki

Apr 8, 2014

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve driven by this place to get yet another  $5 Little Caesers pizza just a few stores down.  Let’s face it.  We have all done it, especially those with families, because it’s fast, easy, and cheap.  Each one of those times I’ve looked over and wondered to myself if this place was any good.  This...

This slideshow requires JavaScript. I write this post mainly to all of the non-sushi eaters out there, because I counted myself as one of you prior to Thursday night.  I have only tried Sushi once before in my entire life, and only got half way through a bite before spitting it back up.  That was about 5 years ago and I vowed never to try sushi again.  That was...

El Habanero

El Habanero

Drive by this place and blink, and you may just well miss it.  El Habanero has been in this Magna neighborhood for as long as I can remember, and I have only been there a hand full of times.  It isn’t Lone Star Taqueria or Red Iguana, but the food is pretty good quality, and it has carved out a nice little niche for surrounding locals with a hankering for...

Texas de Brazil

My wife and I had an opportunity to visit Texas de Brazil at City Creek Center over the weekend.  Texas de Brazil is a Churrascaria, which is roughly translated from the Portuguese word for “Barbecue”.  The concept isn’t new to Salt Lake City, there are several others in town, and they all share common elements between them.  You take a lot of...

Cupbop Korean BBQ

Cupbop Korean BBQ

So this week Utah pulled its annual “PSYCH” on us.  Just when we thought Spring was around the corner, we got snowed and wet-rained on.  I definitely needed something to lift my spirits, and a bowl of Korean BBQ over rice and veggies seemed like a good choice.  Thank  you Twitter for introducing me to Cupbop food truck.  I have a feeling we are...

Tres Hombres

Tres Hombres

Mar 26, 2014

If you work or live in the Millcreek, Utah area, you are familiar with this area and building.  I’ve driven by it a hundred times, and have seen the Tres Hombres sign on top.  Of all the Mexican restaurants in Salt Lake City, Tres Hombres perhaps has the coolest space and building with the most history. (Blue Iguana is in that mix too)  The building has...

Fillings and Emulsions

SLC residents may be familiar with well-known bakeries Tulie, Gourmandise, or Les Madelines, but this may be the best SLC bakery that you have never heard of….until now of course.  Awesome food can stir up strong emotions and feelings in one’s self.  I’ve had many spiritual experiences involving food in this town.  I think that is what chef...
