Default Restaurant Review

I am looking for new places to eat in Salt Lake Valley. I am sick of all the old places. What are your favorite local places. I don't want to go to a chain that I can go to in any old city.

Thanks

We like Xiao Li (Chinese Modern Food - 307 W 200 S) in Salt Lake City itself. The salt and pepper shrimp is my dh's favorite.

The Blue Iguana (Mexican Food - 165 SW Temple) has amazing Green Mole. My dh ordered the Chocolate Mole once to be adventurous.

The East West Connection (Vietnamese Food - 1400 FOOTHILL DR.) was a favorite of ours for many years. I really like the Pho soup there. There is also a Coconut Curry dish that I really like---which is strange for me because I don't usually like curry. Try their spring rolls as well.

Our all time favorite Japanese restaurant is in Midvale. It is called Suehiro (Japanese Food - 6933 S 1300). My dh likes the Tonkatsu (best sauce he's ever had on Tonkatsu) and I always get sushi.

We love Maccools Irish Pub. The food is great and the atmosphere makes it even better. I think it is on foothill

This was one of our favorites before it closed. I'd love to hear other recommendations for similar restaurants.

We love Taste of Thai in West Jordan. It is on Redwood Road at 7000 S. It is in the same complex as Harbor Freight.

I second this! There is a location at The District in So. Jordan also, across from the Megaplex theaters.

Default if you want something different....

Try Star of India downtown. I am not sure of the exact location. I took my parents there last year. My mom is not a fan of Indian cuisine and my dad is. They both loved it. And so did I Look for discount certificates at Restaurant.com Look for a code on PYP. The 70% code just expired, you could get a great deal!

Enjoy!
