Santo Taco Opens
I've been keeping an eye on this Rose Park taqueria, and, as of press time, it looks like Santo Taco (910 N. 900 West, Ste. B, 801-893-4000, is scheduled to open on Tuesday, Jan. 15. Based on its tasty website photos and positive Instagram updates—hello, patio warmers!—we should be enjoying its tacos al pastor sometime this week. Thus far, I've become enamored with their pics that show demonstrations of everything from posole to the Yucatán cochinita pibil—not to mention the fact that they're planning on being open 24 hours on Fridays and Saturdays. I'm always happy to welcome another taqueria to Salt Lake and look forward to checking this place out at 3 a.m. on Saturday morning.

The Angry Korean BBQ Opens
Another noteworthy addition to Utah's restaurant scene is The Angry Korean (11587 S. District Main Drive, Ste. 300, South Jordan,, a Korean barbecue spot that has evolved from a popular local food truck. The brick-and-mortar store opened in mid-December, and has been cranking out Korean classics like japchae and bulgogi while fusing these traditional flavors with burgers and cheesesteaks. As of Jan. 2, it's now open for lunch and dinner, according to a Facebook post with a photo of one fantastic-looking take on a Philly cheesesteak. If you're looking for a tasty bite after catching a movie or doing some shopping at The District, take a moment to stop by and get Angry.

Designer Cookie Decorating
Jeanette Durham and Laurie Thompson, the sisters behind Blyss Cookies, are kicking off a series of cookie-decorating classes at the Gygi Culinary Arts Center (3500 S. 300 West, 801-268-3316, starting Tuesday, Jan. 15, at 1 and 6 p.m. Blyss Cookies has become known for its colorful use of airbrushing and royal icing, and the owners have partnered with Gygi to share this knowledge with the rest of us. Classes will extend into February, and tickets can be purchased online at Attendees learn the basics of the airbrush technique and leave with a whole satchel of hand-decorated designer cookies at their disposal.
