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...
