    The Kathmandu on highland is awesome. Nepali/Indian food. My mom lived in both Nepal and India and generally hates going out for this type of food as she thinks most restaurants do a horrible job. She demands to go to the Kathmandu every time she's in town. Everything I've ever got here was great, and it's the only Indian restaurant in SLC that can deliver on really spicy food. Nuan's is great and cheap, no beer sucks. I would pay for it if red iguana allowed reservations, waiting forever really keeps me from going there more often. I like cafe madrid but it's mainly nostalgic as I lived in Spain, realistically food is just above average. Lucky 13 has great burgers at good prices. Siragusas is pretty good, although I have a hard time paying for Italian as it's so easy to cook. Pat's BBQ I'd solid. Shahrazad Market is good middle eastern food and is way off beaten path. Jinya ramen house is a new place that's pretty good. Red rock is definitely best slc brewery for food and beer IMO. If you can figure out the real Chinese menu, Szechuan garden in sandy is a real suprise, their American Chinese is just ok. Lots of good food in PC if you have the bucks. All and all the food scene in slc has improved greatly in the 15 years I've lived here. I used to feel it was a gastronomic black hole, but it gets better every year. BTW I've been a kitchen worker for a while.

I was very happy when I went in a month ago and they said they were just focusing on beers and sandwiches/soups like downtown. Literally a week later they were closed and had the sign up for the Italian. I will definitely give it a shot but it feels like there is too much of a presence in that area of Italian/Pizza. It sounds like the placeis great, but entre's are approaching $30.00!
    Here is what exists in the greater sugarhouse area for italian/pizza. Seems a bit much to me:
    SLpizza/pasta
    Fiddlers has pizza
    mellow mushroom
    wasatch has pizza
    Flatbread pizza
    Este Pizza
    Per Noi
    Nuch's
    Michelangelo's

    I just want a really good quality bar/brewery experience with great food, focusing on beer and pairings, but its probably too much to ask as it seems the Epic guys can't seem to run a restaurant.
    Forgot.stoneground but that may be out of your "greater" sugarhood area.

    I concur, that post is pretty spot on.
    My favorite chinese dish in the valley recently disappeared as the hole in the wall joint by the U that made it went under.
    Aristo's by the U on 13th, is good, and so is Indochine there. I've been eating B&D burgers next door since I was in HS, so can't go wrong there in my opinion. Plus the dude who owns it always hooks my kids up with free shakes.

    I'm tellin you though, go out to Thai Issan next to Reams on 4700 S and 2700 W. (my office is out there) Best damn Thai food in the valley. Lots of great places to eat tacos out there too. I frequent Porky's on Redwood and 3500 S, and also El Paisa just off 201 and 3200 W. Place is great, and has a killer all you can eat taco buffet on Fridays. Can be crowded. Go there on a Saturday night, and feel like you are in Mexico. The real deal. Good times. International travel without leaving the state.

    I dunno, I've been around SLC quite a bit. A lot. And I guess I would say that any meal out I've had that wasn't at the Porcupine I ended up regretting in one way or another.

    It's cheap, it's good, they give you a ton of food, just go to the Porcupine.

    edit: not for the gourmets obviously

    I'll have to check out Issan. On the theme of west side SE Asian fare, Asia Palace has killer pho. We've often been the only white people there. Anaya's market in PC is another "stepping into Mexico" type place.

    Downtown SLC, or just around the canyons? Iím surprised that you would say that if youíd spent considerable time downtown-ish. Tons of good, cheap food options.

    Is that Indian place still there in Sandy on 13th east and 100 south? That place was killer.

    My favorite places in SLC (been gone for 7 years now): Finnís in Sugarhouse for brunch, Red Iguana (usually RI2), Kyoto for sushi. Did Vinto end up making it? Cool vibe at that place.

    Vinto is gone, itís HSL now (owned by Handle in Park City)... spendy as hell but delicious

    hard to beat Takashi for sushi imo but also spendy

    I didnít find the Porcupine by the U particularly cheap tho. my go-to is Desert Edge, high value proposition grub there

    Yeah I gotta get around more. Porcupine is too convenient and I just tend to settle I guess.

    Roots Cafe off 33rd is really good for brunch, too lazy to search the thread if it's been mentioned.

    .
    Royal India - it's still there. I went there last week with a guy from work who knows the owners, we had a bunch of stuff that wasn't on the menu that was delicious.

    +1 on Roots Cafe.

    Siegfried's German Deli by the Salt Palace for lunch

    Spitz by the Powder House is good, especially if you need to grab something and eat it in the (rental) car.

    Dasks and GR Kitchen for Greek.

    Alpha Coffee by the Porcupine (owner is bad ass and so is the cof

    Taqueria 27 and Caputo's in Holliday.

    I asked at handle, about the organic farm rope raised mussels, if the rope was organic. She didn't know, but asked. They couldn't find out. Service these days.

    Royal India still there as sfotex stated, but has been closed about a week. There was a kitchen fire. Doesn't seem bad and sign says will reopen, but no date. We probably eat there couple times a month. Delicious and inexpensive.

    Surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet but Feldman's has gotta be one of the best spots in the valley. A little pricey but worth every penny. Hot corned beef on Jewish rye w/mustard + potato salad... mmmmmmm

    Also stopped by Chedda Burger on 600S today, which was formerly a food truck. Good stuff there too.

    Its as close to a true NYC Jewish Deli that I have encountered in Utah for sure.

    Jinya on 59S and state for the best ramen in town. Quite authentic according to a friend who grew up in JP.
    Special mention for breakfast at the Porcupine, while I find most of their regular menu uninspiring (outside of the Oktoberfest specials) the big ol' pile of breakfast definitely makes for a nice end to a morning tour.
