I'm an east coast Chowhounder who just got back fr. a few days in Salt Lake City. Here are some highlights of my trip:
Chowtruck- Wow! We ran out in pouring rain to catch the Chowtruck before they left their lunch stop. Totally worth getting soaked! I've been multiple times to Kogi in L.A. but the Chowtruck has them beat! It's slightly more innovative, just as tasty and no ridiculous line! The special that day was a fried shrimp cake which I ordered as a slider. YUM! We also had a spicy beef taco, a pork slider and the fried calamari. Next time I would skip the calamari and get more tacos or sliders! Highly recommend checking them out!
Mini's Cupcakes- Chocolate cupcake with seasalt and a pretzel on top. I'm a sucker for sweet/salty so this was right up my alley. s'more cupcake and tiramisu one also delicious
Downtown Farmer's Mkt- You guys have a great farmer's market. I would be there every wknd if I lived there
Forage- This was the highlight of my wknd and probably one of my dining highlights of the year!!
This place is AMAZING! You guys are so lucky to have Forage in SLC! Four of us dined here on Friday evening- we decided on the 3 course menu instead of the bigger tasting menu because it was late in the evening. Even so, including all the extras they throw in we had 7 courses. Everything tasted spectacular - particularly notable was egg custard in an egg shell, the pork main dish and all of the desserts. It was about $60/ person which was a TOTAL bargain! In NYC or SF this would have been at least double. service was good and the Asian chef is totally HOT!
Sorry for the long post. thanks for a great foodie adventure!
