    La Jolla Groves has opened in SLC in the Ghostway Mall. It's been open for about a month.

    We ended up there tonight with friends since it was one place that didn't have a loooooong wait and it's not a national chain.

    It occupies the same space that McGrath's was in.

    The interior is completely changed.

    The interior is nice enough.

    This post is misplaced in this thread.

They raved about it so I ordered one last week when we were there and it was fantastic. My new favorite menu item. You must try it next time you go.

    The new Orem restaurant will be one block north of the mall on State Street. Opening in May or June.

    That is only a few blocks from my employment. I haven't had the yellow curry banh mi, but I have had the yellow curry chicken bun. When it is opened, it will be my go to lunch spot when I forget to grab lunch. I'm still amazed at how cheap the food is at this place.

    Last night we split a honey glazed pork bahn mi and the yellow curry chicken bun and it was fantastic. The chicken tasted great and was perfectly cooked. I have no doubt that the bahn mi is also great.

    The shredded pork bahn mi is also really good.

    The heat varies wildly at this place. I've had the spice vary from nothing to the higher end of my tolerance levels. I guess that is the risk you take when you are using fresh jalapenos.

    I timed it last night and the place is less than 5 minutes from my house. If I call in the order and time everything right, I have dinner in less than 20 minutes. It is becoming our go to place when we don't know what to do for dinner.

    Is this place open in Holliday?

    There's a pho place down the street from work that I've hit a few times, but I am no conossieur of this type of food. Their soup is quite good, however.

    I am up in Holliday frequently so if it's open there now, I'd like to stop by and check it out.

    Anything else to try besides the sandwiches?

    The Holiday location is open. I actually like to split a sandwich and bun when my wife and I go there. If I was getting one thing, it would be the bahn mi though.

    Can you blame him? His last outing was a threesome with donuthold and DDD. You know DDD demanded to go first.

    If anyone wants to meet at the Holiday location for lunch just let me know. I live right by there and have been doing a lot of work from home, so I will be glad to grab a bite with you when I can. Shoot me a BM.

    It's ironic for a scot-descendant brit to comment on cuisine but I fell in love with the Red Iguana and the spicy chicken sandwich at the Chick Filet place in salt lake.

    A scot? Fu***** awesome!

    I had a glass of scotch a couple weeks ago. Shit was expensive and tasted absolutely horrible, but every now and again I have to make a nod to my ancestors.

    If there is a difference between scotch and 91 octane, I'm not sure what it is.

    Bucket'O'Crawfish. I think I took the belt route from I-15 heading towards the airport and got off on 3500 S or E or somethingoranother. It wasn't as good crawfish as I recall from my days at Fort Polk, LA but it was damn good and should get better as the mudbugs get bigger as the season goes on. The garlic butter shrimp were quite tasty as well.

    I have visited Europe 3 times. Nice place to visit with the exception of France in 1965. What I really liked about Europe is how old it seemed. Very layback and non competitive. I felt in any kind of confrontation I would have the upper hand. Especially in France where the men lay their heads on the women's shoulders instead of vice versa.

    Do they do the garlic butter shrimp in a wrap? Perhaps with a cajun seasoning?

    Actually they come in a plastic bag that keeps heat really well, I mean smokin' hot well! I mention this because it could be a spectacular pickup meal and the sauce would go real well over a baked spud or perhaps rice. One can order crawfish, shrimp, dungenes crab or king crab legs. There are a few spicey sauces, one of which is in fact cajun seasoning - which I happened to choose for my delictable, albeit cholesterol friendly meal. You should try it to misty smarty-but-very-large pants. Perhaps you might wanna follow the advice I got in my bestest Christmas card this past yuletide season: "her secret eat less and move around more."

    They also boil the sides, mostly corn (prounounced kaaaaaahrn) and red potaotoes. I had my kaaaaaahrn in the garlic butter sauce and the spuds in the cajun seasoning with me mudbugs.

    I give it 3 snaps and a circle!

    I keep wanting to go to this place but my wife just can't take the name seriously as a recommendation for date night. "Come on Honey, it'll be a romantic dinner at Bucket 'O' Crawfish!"
    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.

    I went for the first time and ordered the same thing. Maybe there's something to the previous comment about the variation in heat, because while I don't go out of my way to enjoy really spicy food, I also don't consider myself a wimp, but I couldn't quite finish my spicy short rib sandwich for fear of doing permanent damage to my mouth. Wow.

    I will go again, because I want to try the pulled pork and the honey glazed pork sandwiches.

    Hmm.. Wasn't spicy at all to me. Had a nice kick, but packed full of flavor.

    All you have to do is open up your sandwich and pick out the sliced jalapenos. They put them in all the sandwiches. Sometimes that are mild heat and other times they are thermonuclear.

    My wife was working out on the treadmill this morning watching CNN and they did a food feature called "Best 100 places to eat" or something like that. They had a reporter in SLC and they featured our very own Oh Mai restaurant. How about that?

    I hope they are able to manage their success and maintain the flavor and friendly atmosphere.
