Meat Cute

Rediscover your love of the sandwich at Orem's Lomito's.

Stamp of Approval

Neither snow nor rain should keep you away from Post Office Place.

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

Chillin' with Millie's

The supporting cast steals the show at Millie's Burgers.
Mere blocks from flashy, modern concept restaurants, the 40-year-old family-owned burger joint seems unfazed by the surrounding urbanization.

Fest Feasting

Park City's Twisted Fern offers great eats away from the Sundance crowd.
Luckily, Main Street isn't the only place in town where you can get a decent bite to eat.

Churn Up the Volume

Frozen treats to get you through the bleak winter months.
Here are a few joints to help you appreciate the cold while we trudge through the dead of winter.

Sichuan and Only

Sandy's Szechuan Garden turns up the heat to electrify the tastebuds.
I like to see these as a primer of sorts—something that helps prepare the taste buds for an onslaught of smoky heat that would otherwise overwhelm the senses.

Fondest Feasts

An ode to a year of eating dangerously.
I've had the chance to dig deeply into Utah's food scene, and such a rare opportunity has led me to realize something important about our fair city: It's a truly great place to write about food.

History with a Slice of Meatloaf

Ruth's Diner continues to emulate the fiery legacy of its founder.
Ruth's Diner embodies the spirit of one of Salt Lake's most original personalities: a Chihuahua-loving, chain-smoking, shit-talkin' former cabaret singer named Ruth Evans who founded the place back in 1930.

The House Always Wins

South Salt Lake's Veggie House is your one-stop shop for meatless maki.
I'm used to seeing rolls that run the length and breadth of a candy bar, but the ones here have some meatless meat on their bones.

Empanada Rama

Empanada Express is your gateway to Latin American comfort food.
Think of all the youths who, right at this moment, think an empanada is actually a fried dessert burrito.

Goat by the Horn

Horn of Africa offers up a fascinating, edible history lesson.
Historians will tell you that Somalia's presence in the Horn of Africa, the continent's easternmost peninsula, made it a valuable target for European colonists.

Pie One On

Thanksgiving table conversation got you down? Harness the healing power of pie.
Whatever your brand of Thanksgiving horror might be, pie is the antidote—so let's take stock of what we're looking at this year.

Fried and True

Curry Fried Chicken is the fusion restaurant we deserve.
Fusion happens when you belly up to a bar to have your nose tingle as the smell of curry and samosas seamlessly blend with the smell of frying oil and crispy chicken.

Laid Back

With my mind on my poke and my poke on my mind.
Instead of arriving at the table demurely wrapped in nori, poke is piled high on top of a bowl of rice in glorious heaps—its level of casual familiarity lends itself to large, nonjudgmental portions.

In Pizza We Trust

Despite sudden relocation, Spedelli's continues to deliver the goods.
Don't be fooled by the Bentleys and boob jobs—those socialites in the Harvard and Yale neighborhoods love a good slice just as much as the rest of us. They don't call them the upper crust for nothing.
