Chunga’s

From the outside, this place looks like a run down, dirtball Mexican hole in the wall… but the food is fantastic. If you ever find yourself venturing over onto the west side to eat at the much (over?) hyped Reg Iguana, make a detour to Chunga’s. It was a beautiful afternoon when I visited, so […]

El Paisa Mariscos Y Tacos

Well, we have a winner… These are the best street tacos I’ve had thus far in my tour of Salt Lake City taco carts. El Paisa is located on the corner of 9th South and State, facing east. They are hard to miss with their large yellow catering trailer parked next to the taco cart. […]

Banbury Cross Donuts

Dunkin Donuts recently moved into Salt Lake City, to a decent amount of hype and excitement. Being from the midwest / east coast, I grew up on Dunkin (well mostly Krispy Kreme actually). Dunkin’s donuts are nothing special in my opinion, but their coffee is wildly popular with many people in the east and midwest. […]

Twilight Concert Series 2013

With the addition of Ludacris yesterday, it looks like the lineup for the 2013 Twilight Concert Series in Salt Lake City is just about complete (other than a few opening acts). The concerts take place right downtown in Pioneer Park, the same park that hosts the Saturday morning farmer’s market throughout the summer and fall. […]

The Park Cafe

I’ve been looking for a good breakfast spot that is close to my apartment since I moved downtown in May.  I often ride my bike in the morning at Liberty Park and I’ve always noticed a ton of people sitting on the outdoor patio (or waiting to get inside) a small cafe across from the […]

Mi Lindo Nayarit #3

I stumbled on this place by accident. After attempting to eat at a different Mexican restaurant, I decided that the bike parking looked to be a little too sketchy and I decided to keep cruising around the neighborhood and look for some place else to eat. Just as I was about to give up hope […]

Pro Beach Volleyball Coming to Salt Lake City

If you are a fan of beach volleyball, the pro tour is coming to Salt Lake City’s Liberty Park in August. The weekend of the 16-18, all of the top players will be playing right downtown (just down the street from me!) I’m actually going to the beach that previous week, but I get back […]

Tacos Don Rafa

After a weekend break from tacos, I was right back on the taco wagon Monday morning with a stop at Tacos Don Rafa. Don Rafa is the other major taco cart player on the east side of Sears. This cart sits right on State St, near the 8th South corner. Don Rafa is the 2nd […]

Tacos Mi Favorito

Tacos Mi Favorito is on Main St near the corner or 8th South on the other side of the Sear’s parking lot – west of El Toro and Don Rafa.  This one kind of sits off by itself and I’ve never really see too many people at this cart in the couple of times that […]
