Heidi and I stayed a night in Salt Lake last week for one last getaway before the baby arrives. It was just the two of us and it was terribly refreshing. We basically ate, did some Christmas shopping, slept, slept, and ate some more.
The first stop was Taqueria 27 at 1615 s. Foothill drive. We're both street taco fans and we love Tacos 180 and Masa in Utah County so we were excited to try this place. We ordered 2 steak, 2 mushroom, and 2 pork tacos with a side of delicious mango guacamole. Very very good. High quality ingredients, fun atmosphere, and delicious food. If you're in the mood for fancy tacos and you're by the University of Utah then give this place a try. Maybe not the best place if you're looking for a gut Bomb. They're about $3 per taco, think quality over quantity.
We stayed at the Sheraton with our Starwood points. Online they advertised as newly renovated with fancy beds. Maybe their website hasn't been updated for a while since neither description seemed to describe our room. Here's a tip, DO NOT let them put you by the ice dispenser! And if you're hoping to rent a movie through the hotel's movie service, forget it. They don't have one. To keep things positive, their black out curtains worked like a charm. We didn't wake up until 11 am. That's right 11! I haven't slept in that long since high school. Sometimes you just don't realize how tired you really are. The ice machine woke me up...again, which was the only reason we even woke up at that time.
Other highlights included eating at Our favorite indian restaurant, Bombay House, a night cap at Farr's frozen custard which was mediocre, maybe we didn't order the right flavors. Shopping at Trolley Square which is making a solid comeback, church on temple square, and then breakfast at The Original Pancake House. We love that place. We went at 2pm and it was packed. We waited 10 minutes to be seated. The greeter told us they were opening up another location in Sandy and seriously considering Lehi as well which would be rather exciting.
Time flew by but it was so much fun. Be sure to take some time out of your busy schedules and enjoy Salt Lake every now an then. There's lots to do and enjoy and eat! Be sure to share your favorite places and events in Salt Lake with us.
