Food Critic

I moved from the Seattle area to Utah County about four years ago. One of the hardest parts of that move was the extreme lack of good food in Utah. I grew up in Utah and always figured we had good food here, but just in the expensive restaurants. I was wrong. There is no substitute for seafood only a few hours old, and it will never be possible to have that kind of freshness in Utah. One coping method I’ve found is to go on vacations, with the goal of eating great food being high on the list of reasons for choosing a location.

I’m pleased to say that things have gotten better in Utah. Some of the “better” chain restaurants, like California Pizza Kitchen, Cheesecake Factory, Buca di Beppo’s, etc. and some of the “better” fast-food chains, like Five Guys Burgers and Fries, In-N-Out, etc. are starting to show up in Utah. We’re even starting to get some good non-chain restaurants. It’s exciting to be able to try all these new places when they show up (and are still relatively cheap).

Basically, I like to eat out. I’m planning on using that one fact as the basis to revive my blog. It’s going to be especially fun for me, since I’ve discovered the WordPress iPhone application, so I can blog my food experiences while I’m still enjoying them.
