Very excellent restaurants and bars in and around Salt Lake City?
Hello all! I'll be in Park City for a couple days later this month, and I'm wondering if there's anything I should head to Salt Lake City for. I'm thinking of going to The Garage with my sister, but I'd love more ideas across all genres. I've had a blast at the Copper Onion; I thought Del Mar Al Lago was a great find. Haven't been impressed by too much in PC/Midway/Heber except Tarahumara and Anaya's.
If anyone could point me toward Pacific Islander food I'd be especially grateful! But anything is great!
My favorite bar in SLC is Lucky 13 which is located at 135 W 1300 S. The patio is fun and their burgers are unique.
If you want to go full-on dive bar the Busy Bee (2115 S State S) serves up a mean garlic burger.
Disclaimer: I live in Heber so I'm not well versed in the SLC scene. I'm glad you liked Tarahumara!
My favorite restaurants in SLC are:
Takashi - Sit at the bar and let the sushi chef choose for you, especially if you avoid rolls and do sashimi & nigiri only.
Settebello - Excellent neapolitan-style pizza.
Red Iguana (either one) - PUNTAS DE FILETE A LA NORTEÑA. I can't emphasize this enough, especially if you get them to replace 1/2 the mole de almendras with mole amarillo.
Kobe Japanese Cuisine - This place is all about the ramen, especially the Tonkotsu. I typically add extra char siu and egg. Really good!
Ho Mei BBQ - Best with several adventurous eaters. Get the 3 bbq meats sampler, a clay pot dish, an offal stir fry, some gai lan, rice... Honestly, I could spend days in here working through the menu. My favorite Chinese restaurant in SLC.
I don't know a lot of SLC bars, but if you are a craft-brewing aficianado, you should definitely hit the Bayou!
