Ted Scheffler of the City Weekly journeys on up to Snowbird, helping judge the first annual “Grill on the Hill”, a Kansas City Barbecue Society event. The first portion of the article tackles the intricacies of said judging.

While Ted is up at the ‘bird, he samples meals at The Aerie Sushi Bar, El Chanate and the Cliff Lodge Sunday Brunch. By a strange twist of fate, we ourselves happened to be up at Snowbird this weekend. Coming later this week from us, a thorough review of The Aerie restaurant for good measure.

A review close to my heart this week from Kelly Ashkettle of In Utah This Week. Kelly samples the delights of Elizabeth’s English Bakery & Tea Shop. Cornish pasties, meat pies and sausage rolls practically sustained me for a good 20 years of life, growing up back home. Kelly gives the thumbs up to this relatively new bakery and tea shop. I can’t believe I haven’t been down yet to run the rule over the authenticity of the place.

The article provides an encouraging quote from the chef however: “Duff, who prepares the food according to the preferences and family recipes of the owners. “My dad lives in England,” she adds. “He came and visited, and he said, ‘It’s just like an English bakery, Tara, except it’s just a bit too clean.’ ”

Sounds like a winner to me.

Deseret Morning News

Stacey Kratz reviews Woody’s Drive In, over in the Deseret Morning News. Woody’s is a classic American fast food joint. For the burger lovers out there: “I didn’t pay enough attention when I asked for a Super Woody burger with bacon. I thought he’d be getting a double cheeseburger with bacon, which it was. What I neglected to notice is that each of the patties of that burger was three-quarters of a pound, making the finished sandwich the size of a plate.”.

If Super sized burgers, floats and fries is your bag, Woody’s appears to be worth checking out.

If your in the vicinity of Ogden you might want to spend some time at Sonora Grill, reviewed by Your Heart Out this week. From the brief review Sonora Grill looks to be a touch different to your standard Mexican eatery. Guacamole made table side, fresh Cevice and Marlin with pickled Poblano Peppers are just three of the delicious items mentioned in review.

Sonora Grill: 2310 S. Kiesel Avenue, Ogden, Utah

Finally Lyndsey Kocher of About.com checks out one of many a Utahn’s favourite chain eateries, The Old Spaghetti Factory.

Lyndsey mentions crowds are happy to wait for over an hour at the Trolley Square location. Wow. I often try to tell people I’m not a food snob, but in this case I guess I am. A full hours wait? I kinda feel sad for some of Salt Lake’s independently owned Italian restaurants.
