If you ask my husband what his favorite restaurant is, he’ll say Spitz without hesitation. I first went here with my coworkers back in the beginning of this year and I was immediately hooked, and I knew Colby would be even more addicted than me so I took him there as soon as I could. Since then, we’ve been stuffing our faces with the best Mediterranean food every time we’re in SLC.
But listen up: everyone who lives south of Sugarhouse can now sing praises because Spitz just opened up a new location in Cottonwood Heights! We got the chance to check it out yesterday at a fun blogger event put together by Female Foodie (go check out her site, I also contribute there!) and we could not be more in love.
I’ve tried almost everything at Spitz, and my favorite is definitely the street cart fries. A mix of regular and sweet potato fries piled high with garlic aioli, feta, onions, green peppers, tomatoes, olives, pepperoncinis, and a mix of beef and lamb. It is divine. I always eat way too much of them but I don’t even care because they’re the best.
Colby always gets the street cart doner, which can be a sandwich or wrap (he does the wrap) filled with garlic aioli, fried lavish chips, romaine, cabbage, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, cucumber, tzatziki, and your choice of protein – but always go for the beef and lamb. I have a couple friends who have lived in Spain and other parts of Europe who swear by this sandwich and say it’s one of the most authentic things they’ve eaten.
Yesterday I decided to try something new so I ordered the “doquitos,” which are essentially taquitos with lamb and beef inside and smothered with all the same toppings as the street cart fries. It’s a tough race between which is better between this and the fries… I’m going to have a hard time deciding what to get next time!
Spitz also gave us a basket of their fried pita strips yesterday, and everyone at the table had heart eyes for those babies. They taste like a scone and are served with fresh hummus. We were definitely fighting over who would get the last one.
I should have taken way more pictures of the interior but I love how every location of Spitz is true to their style but also a little different. The new one is at the base of the canyons, so it’s more ski-lodge themed and I’m kind of obsessed with how they did it. Can their interior designer come design my house or…?
Basically, Spitz is the best, and if you’re in the area, you should go check it out. It’s one of the recommendations I will always give if you ask me where to eat in and around Salt Lake! All their locations and more info is over here on the Spitz website.
