Featured post: Kudos to Ted Scheffler of the City Weekly for covering the most excellent Tasty Thai recently. While Ted doesn’t find the dining space the most captivating, the food more than makes up for that. And we couldn’t agree more.
We covered Tasty Thai back in May of 2009 and have been going back consistently ever since. It is now our to go choice for an affordable and enjoyable meal. The restaurant also recently received their liquor license too, allowing those fiery curries to be washed down with an ice cold beer.

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV shows.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for the better part of fifteen years. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of big words I don’t understand. What they’re saying about me: “Not inaccurate”, “I thought he was older”, “I don’t share his feelings”.
