    Last time I went to the Holladay location, it seemed as though prices were already creeping up... Spicy rib was 5.18, I believe not 4.98 anymore... Still cheap, though.

    Tried the honey glazed pork and the brisket pho sandwiches. They both were very good.

    Friends tried to take us last weekend when we were in town. We went rather late and they were out of bread . So no sandwiches for us.

    Sad news for my Utah County amigos. We dropped in to Oh Mai on 35th South State the other day and I asked the owner how the new Orem site is coming along and if they still plan to open in June. He said that it might not happen now because they can't get the lease finalized. The owners don't think their credit rating is strong enough. Still possible that it will happen, but not in the near future. Dammit.
    So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.

    Bummer! I've been talking that place up at my office and was planning on taking all of my guys to lunch there. Ah well, at least I live right by the Holladay location.
    Kids in general these days seem more socially retarded...

    None of them date. They hang out. They text. They sit in the same car or room and don't say a word...they text. Then, they go home and whack off to internet porn.

    I think that's the sad truth about why these kids are retards.

    Not sure if Bubba's has been mentioned here before. BBQ place on 21st South and about 600 East, north side of the street.

    It's slightly unconventional, but I think that makes it a nice BBQ change of pace. The brisket is seasoned with rosemary and garlic. It's shredded rather than sliced, and it is delicious. I also like the Asian coleslaw.

    Bubba's has been mentioned a time or two. I'm surprised you didn't see half the board there.

    Are you thinking of Bam Bam's? Also a good place, but that's in Orem.

    Nice, dude. Didn't realize you were coming for your b-day. It's a cool place. Food is good, obviously, but it's quite the experience as well. The valets, the building itself, the views, the dress code...all that.

    This was one of the most oft-photographed locations, by missionaries, in my mission. It's a little town about 40 miles east of Munich. Missionaries would waste remarkable amounts of money and time to get that shot...

    My wife and I went to Naked Fish last night, and it was absolutely delicious. One of our Japanese friends said that this was her favorite sushi restaurant in Salt Lake, so we had to give it a try. Since it was our first time, we tried a lot of different things: rolls, nigiri, sashimi, tempura, hot and cold plates, etc. Everything was enjoyable. The best was their lamb. It was cooked medium-rare and had a light vanilla honey glaze. The lamb just melts in your mouth. All of the fish we had was perfect, and I even liked the eggplant tempura (which is notable because I really don't like eggplant). The portions are kind of small, but it was definitely worth it. Next time we go we're going to make reservations for the chef tasting menu.

    Has anybody tried this place? http://www.africanrestaurant.org/Afr...estaurant.html

    I'm thinking of giving it a shot tonight. They get excellent reviews, but it's not close to me so I'd rather not go unless I'm confident it will be good.

    lol the name is terrible. check it out and report.

    I went to a "South African" place last year (located in North SL or Bountiful, cant remember) because I really wanted bunny chow, but this place served really terrible kotas. Never went back.

    The restaurant we went to wasn't at that location--it was on State St., but all the decor looks the same so I wonder if they moved.

    Anyway the Budenaa Bread was disgusting. Sort of like a rancid sponge bread with the taste and texture of sweet fermented rice cake that the pake cake truck used to schlep around in Hawaii, but sour. I thought the beef stew entre would be good because I love red peppers, but it was surprisingly tasteless, kind of a bland gumbo file flavor with no other notes, so a little "dirty" taste.

    yes. some somali refugees insisted that i go there with them, and it was disgusting. i usually don't freak out about restaurant cleanliness but it was bad.

    Well hell, based on early returns, I'd better be looking elsewhere for dinner options tonight.

    All "African" restaurants look the same to you? Hmmmm.
    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    I hadn't realized, or at least had forgotten, that The Copper Onion had been reviewed (favorably) here on the board, but we ate there this evening and had a very good meal. I had the Wagyu Beef Stroganoff, a fine combination of good beef, pasta and a cream sauce, along with a fine crusted goat cheese salad, nice sides (asparagus and brussels sprouts) and some delish house ice cream (caramel with chocolate covered cashews). My wife, three of the kids and I left very happy and satisfied. The place wasn't impressive visually but still comfortable and our server was great. Highly recommended.

    The Copper Onion is great but I don't understand why it's so popular and busy -- really tough to get a reservation at a normal time unless you know you want to eat there weeks in advance.

    We ate at Alamexo a few weeks ago and really liked it. Probably a little overpriced but we will go back for sure. I'd rank it only a little below Frida's Bistro.

    Cannella's is a very nice, small Italian place in downtown SLC. Reasonable prices, good service, good food.
