Reviews and write upsWhile the sun’s shining, people aren’t writing about food apparently; so after a July hiatus then, please welcome back The Roundup, a run down of every local review, writeup, podcast and more about the local food scene. A special mention should go out to the Redneck Food Rambles blog this month, who’s recent output has been nothing shirt of prolific. If you’ve ever wondered about this or that food truck, check out his blog… Bangkok Terrace (SLC) https://www.slugmag.com/food-reviews/holy-thai-basil-bangkok-terrace/ Cafe Madrid (Holladay) https://www.cityweekly.net/utah/spanish-fly/Content?oid=9962902 Clean Eats (Food Truck) https://redneckfoodrambles.wordpress.com/2018/07/25/cleaneats-food-truck/ Curry In A Hurry (SLC) https://www.cityweekly.net/utah/halal-in-the-family/Content?oid=9762709 DaKine Grindz (Food Truck) https://redneckfoodrambles.wordpress.com/2018/06/26/dakine-grindz-food-truck/ Dolce Sicilia (Sugar House) https://www.sltrib.com/artsliving/food/2018/06/25/utah-family-opens-italian-restaurant-number-3-bringing-pasta-seafood-and-other-sweet-sicily-flavors-to-sugar-house/ DP Cheesesteak (South Jordan) https://redneckfoodrambles.wordpress.com/2018/07/10/dp-cheesesteak-south-jordan-utah/ The Eklektik (SLC) https://www.slugmag.com/food-reviews/eklektik-bricolage-beehive/ El Morelense (West Valley City) https://801eats.com/2018/07/27/friday-feature-el-morelense/ El NeNe Sammy (Food Truck) https://redneckfoodrambles.wordpress.com/2018/08/08/el-nene-sammy-food-truck/ Facil Taqueria (Food Truck) https://redneckfoodrambles.wordpress.com/2018/06/27/facil-taqueria-food-truck/ Fat Boy Phillies (Murray) https://www.sltrib.com/news/2018/08/02/gee-whiz-salt-lake-citys/ Fuego (Food Truck) https://redneckfoodrambles.wordpress.com/2018/07/13/fuego-food-truck-2/ Mandarin (Bountiful) http://chewandchat.com/2018/08/mandarin-in-bountiful-farm-fresh-flavors.html On The Hook (Food Truck) https://redneckfoodrambles.wordpress.com/2018/07/17/on-the-hook-fish-and-chips-food-truck/ Pho 33 (Midvale) https://www.cityweekly.net/utah/broth-city/Content?oid=10090606 Rickles (Food Truck) https://redneckfoodrambles.wordpress.com/2018/07/10/rickles-food-truck-revisited/ Sauce Boss (Food Truck) https://redneckfoodrambles.wordpress.com/2018/06/22/sauce-boss-food-truck/ Smoke A Billy (Food Truck) https://redneckfoodrambles.wordpress.com/2018/07/17/smoke-a-billy-food-truck/ Tea Bar (Sugar House) https://801eats.com/2018/07/13/friday-feature-tea-bar/ Terra Mia (Draper) https://redneckfoodrambles.wordpress.com/2018/08/08/terra-mia-draper-utah-revisited/ Touch Of Polynesia (Food Truck) https://redneckfoodrambles.wordpress.com/2018/07/11/touch-of-polynesia-food-truck/ Vertical Diner (SLC) https://www.cityweekly.net/utah/the-dude-cakes-abide/Content?oid=9862060 Victor’s Tires And Restaurant (SLC) https://www.cityweekly.net/utah/tamales-tortas-and-tires/Content?oid=9508099

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. I ate all the pies.
