The Soup Kitchen rules. It’s been around FOREVER, with good reason. If you ever make it to SLC, take a trip to this little spot. My favorite items: SOUP (tomato and clam chowder are my faves), the take-as-many-as-you-want breadsticks (garlic are SOOOOO good), and the scones with honey and butter for dessert (not to be confused with english scones, these are like navajo fry bread). For those of you out there who haven’t been to Utah, you will see from my pictures that The Soup Kitchen also offers a local favorite – FRY SAUCE. All the burger places around here have this stuff – I personally think it is GREAT. It’s pretty much ketchup and mayo mixed together with some seasonings. It tastes better than how I’m describing it – I promise!
I didn’t get a chance to go to The Pie Pizzeria on this trip, but this is another dive-y type food joint near the University of Utah that is mighty fine. I could just order the Cheese Pull-A-Part and be happy. Now that I mention it, I’m getting a little sad I’m not eating those pull-a-parts right now. To get SO CLOSE and be denied…ah, the agony.
