Various Philly Cheesesteaks
Review: Salt Lake Tribune
The first of a quiet week of reviews sees Vanessa Chang sample a number of Philly-style cheesesteaks around town. Moochie’s Meatballs, Fillet of Phillies and Joni’s Deli all receive a visit from Vanessa, who samples this iconic East coast item. It would appear cheeseteaks are close to the hearts of quite a few people, check out the heated debate from the commentators on the article.
In the mood for Japanese? Don’t have time for the full restaurant experience? It sounds like you could do worse than Stacey Kratz’s recommendation for Yoshi’s over in the Deseret Morning News this week. Stacey confesses the food isn’t upto the heights of a Kyoto or Takashi, but that’s not the point. Fast, tasty, and affordable are the order of the day here.
Review: City weekly
Ted Scheffler of the City Weekly takes a moment to introduce two relatively new Indian eateries in the valley; namely Indian Fusion at Jordan Landing and Taste of Indian out in Layton. Indian Fusion has been covered a few times by other local reviewers and isn’t really fusion as such. Expect to see a menu featuring Chicken Tikka Massala couple with Pasta in Alfredo sauce at the same time. Quite odd.
Taste of India on the other hand, is an Indian restaurant in the traditional mould. A rarity for the Layton area to boot it would seem. Ted is bowled over by the “magnificent” food here, so much so, it sounds like I might have to plan a trip Northwards in order to sample the place.
Finally, William Hampton of In Utah This Week checks out Madeline’s Steakhouse. A restaurant I have been meaning to try for some time, since I first saw a mention in the Your Heart Out blog. William only reinforces what I already thought, this place seems like a great alternative to the chain/fancy steakhouse options. Does anyone else have any experience with Madeline’s?
