Mall in the Family

Exploring the local flavor that calls City Creek home.

Feed your Geek

A rogue's gallery of pop culture-inspired dishes to keep you running at 1.21 gigawatts.

Greece Is the Word

With a crowd-pleasing menu and traditional technique, it's easy to go mad for Mad Greek.

Mall in the Family

Exploring the local flavor that calls City Creek home.
When shopping malls began taking over the nation's commercial areas in the 1980s, the inclusion of a food court offered shoppers a way to spend all day in their air-conditioned embrace.

Thinking Way Outside the Bun

How a local burger chain found success introducing the Impossible Burger.
Welcome to the future. We have self-driving cars, our telephones are mini-computers and delicious fast food hamburgers are not necessarily made from dead cows.

Best of the Wurst

Rediscover your love of sausage fests at downtown's Beer Bar.
To prepare for this hoppiest of occasions, I've set my sights on the selection of legendary bratwursts from downtown SLC's Beer Bar.

Hail Seitan!

Mark of the Beastro deceives your taste buds with plant-based comfort food.
The juxtaposition of the eatery's demonic aesthetic and its exclusively plant-based menu feels like I'm being tempted by He who is called the Desolate One.

Donburi, Be Happy

For more than 30 years, Kyoto has remained a champion of Japanese cuisine.
There are several local places that feel like they can call themselves Japanese restaurants because they've added a few yakitori skewers and a bowl of edamame to their voluminous sushi menu.

Churrasco A-Go-Go

South America meets South Jordan at this meat-centric fast casual spot.
Bridging the gap between churrasco and fast-casual comes in the form of skewered meats of all stripes, plus a slew of traditional Brazilian slides, appetizers and desserts.

Belle of the Balls

Whether it's boba or takoyaki, Quickly has a round-shaped snack just for you.
A big part of Quickly's success is its association with the Quickly USA franchise group, which opened its first store in Southern California in 2002.

Arepa Therapy

Get some sandwich baggage off your chest at West Valley's RicArepa Xpress.
In my travels to survey Utah's increasingly diverse food scene, it's safe to say that I've gone pretty far down the rabbit hole of Central American sandwich culture.

Prom Nom-Nom

This prom season, let us reflect on fine dining through a teenage lens.
When I was a high school teacher, it signified the blessed conclusion of another school year, but when I was a high school student, prom season was something else altogether.

Cruising for Kabuli

South Salt Lake's Afghan Kitchen wants to show you some love.
What's even more enjoyable is seeing customers who have clearly become regulars because of Afghan Kitchen's welcoming environment and who enjoy the food as much as Salem enjoys preparing it.

Taco Squared

With a menu chock-full of staples, which Taco Taco dish reigns supreme?
There's something special about enjoying tacos al pastor and margaritas while being watched over by artistic renderings of mighty luchadores—eating here feels less like an everyday kind of taco trip and more like a battle royale between your carne asada and you.

The King and I

King Buffet exemplifies the American melting pot in more ways than one.
When Chinese American restaurateurs started to merge their menus with the buffet business model, they not only added more nuance and healthy competition, but also bridged a gap between American ideology and immigrant culture.

Meat Cute

Rediscover your love of the sandwich at Orem's Lomito's.
While I'm not exactly sure how our sandwich identity crisis has gotten so out of hand, I do know that this most elegant of foods deserves much better than the constant replication that it's currently getting from mainstream eateries.

Stamp of Approval

Neither snow nor rain should keep you away from Post Office Place.
The fact that Post Office Place shares a pedigree with one of downtown SLC's most venerated restaurants piqued my curiosity, and I was looking forward to challenging a few of my culinary prejudices.

Battle of the 'Tos

Behold the local breakfast burrito ranking you never knew you needed.
I've come to appreciate the gigantic, hangover-destroying might of the breakfast burrito, which led me to the question of all questions: Which place does breakfast best?

Thrilla from Manila

BFF Turon serves up a tasty masterclass in Filipino cuisine.
Filipino food is a love note to the tongue-tickling power of vinegary, acid-forward flavor profiles, and some primo examples can be found at West Jordan's BFF Turon
