Salt Lake City secret menu hacks

Who said don’t play with your food? They’ve clearly never lived. Amalgamating of flavors is one of our favorite hobbies. If you’ve got a menu hack that we need to know about in SLC, we’d love to hear from you. As you can see, we take this stuff seriously. Drop us an email.

Goden Gyros – Gyro BLT

Golden Gyros – gyro BLT

Ever wondered what happens when you merge a gyro with a BLT? Wonder no more, just look up. If I’ve got your attention, your next task is to head to Golden Gyros on 9th South. Once there order up the regular BLT, a side of gyro meat and some extra fry sauce. From there you can assemble this absolutely calorie monster of a sandwich. Extra bonus points: the BLT at Golden Gyros comes on a type of thick, Texas toast style bread, which makes for even more texture and taste.

You’ll need to complete this one in the comfort of your own home. You’ll need an order of Gurkha’s biryani and an order of chicken tikka. Next up, cook a couple of eggs in a hot pan with oil until a small omelette forms. Break it up a little an add your biryani, chicken tikka and a few pieces of the onions from the dish too. Cook on high heat and add a little soy. Perfect.

SOMI – extra extra extra wings

SOMI – SOMI wings

Hands down the best chicken wings in town. These beautiful things can be found at Sugar House’s SOMI Vietnamese Bistro and eschew the usual sweet or sticky sauces. Instead they come with a smart balance of Thai basil, garlic, jalapeño and salt. The menu actually has an option for extra additions of each of these. Ask for extra of everything and get ready for a taste like no other.

O’Falafel – Everything Upgrade

The menu at O’Falafel lets you add a little of this, that, and that too. My favorite? Start with the chicken tikka tin – vibrantly colored grilled chicken, that comes on a bed of rice with side salads. From there opt for the extra side of gyro, beef skewer and falafel.

This home hack should be self explanatory but let me fill you in on a secret

McDonald’s – hack the hacks

McDonald's - every hack, hacked
McDonald’s – every hack, hacked

This one is only for the seriously committed. You might have heard of the McDonald’s secret menu – but the above is what happens when you combine the Crunchy Double, Surf + Turf and
Air, Land & Sea; it’s measured by the foot.
