A trip to Purgatory is devilishly delicious.

Cantina Cuisine

Alamexo 2.0 dishes up quality flavors in a fun, casual setting.

Provo Persian

Find killer kebabs in Utah County at Café on Fire.
Somewhat indicative of its demographics, Utah County; Provo and Orem in particular; doesn't offer the most diverse array of dining options.

Order in the Court

Find dining diversity at City Creek Center.
Chock full of posh shops, City Creek Center isn't a place I tend to associate with diversity.

Culinary Karma

To Hell's Backbone Grill and back.
"Dining in restaurants, like literature, is a crapshoot."

Celebrating the joys of utensil-free dining.
There is a fair amount I don't know about dining etiquette.

The Power of We

We Olive & Wine Bar opens in Trolley Square.

Highlighting some of my favorite local food-and-beer pairings.

I remember my first taco.

Midday Munchies

You Don't Know Jack's

There's a new go-to for brews and burgers in downtown Salt Lake City.
It doesn't take much to convince me to try out a new burger joint—if you build it, I will come.

The Bold and the Bountiful

Royal India dishes up unflinching Indian fare.
When thinking of destination dining, Bountiful might not come most immediately to mind.

Google hard enough, and you'll come to the conclusion that garlic burgers made their pungent splash onto Utah's culinary scene in the 1970s.
