If you were following me on Snapchat over the summer, you most likely saw my many escapades to the Salt Lake City farmer’s market and you might know that there are two main reasons I frequent the market: heirloom tomatoes and limeade. The tomatoes are a discussion for another day, but the limeade you can get on sunny Saturday mornings downtown is out of this world, and I’m always sad when the market ends for the season and I can’t get it anymore. That is, until now – because I can now sip on a glass of it anytime I want at Sweet Lake Biscuits & Limeade.
If you find yourself scouring the Internet day-in and day-out for new places to eat in the Salty City, look no further. Just hop in your car and head to From Scratch! This tucked-away spot was one of the best we’ve been to in a while and we’re already craving more.
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.
Here in Utah, we get three extra holidays per year. One is the 24th of July, which is the celebration of the day that pioneers arrived in the valley in 1847. And the other two are known as LDS General Conference. On the first weekends in April and October, it seems like the whole state shuts down as members of the Mormon faith tune into a conference from the leaders of the church for two days straight. But, when your husband works in a restaurant on Temple Square (where the conference takes place), it’s the opposite of a holiday. It’s actually two of the busiest weekend of the year at The Roof Restaurant, as thousands of people flock downtown to attend General Conference in person.
Raise your hand if you just knew my first post about Iceland was going to be food-related! Typical, right? When we arrived in Iceland, our first stop was Reykjavik, where we hung out for our first day before heading off to the Golden Circle. We ended up passing through Reykjavik a few other times on our trip, which meant we got to try a lot of different food around the city. Spoiler alert: all of it was amazing!
