Shoga Review

Guest review by Dan Purdon, Utah Food Maven I walked into Shoga this weekend with my wife and some friends, ready for some sweet sushi goodness.  I had been there once before when they first opened, and I thought they had some nice rolls.  Evidently I was right, because they have gotten a lot busier […]

Mimi’s Cafe Review

Guest review by Dan Purdon, Utah Food Maven. This Halloween, we decided to hit the Mimi’s Cafe in Orem for dinner – in full costume.  There were five of us in 1800’s regalia, and for some reason it just seemed to fit with Mimi’s atmosphere.  (Mimi’s is actually Creole/New Orleans-themed, but it just felt right.) […]

All Hands on Deck at Pirate Island Pizza in Orem

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirates life for me. That is the first thing that popped into my head as I walked in to the new Pirate Island Pizza restaurant in Orem. Located just North of University Mall, where the old dollar theater used to be. I love pizza, having eaten at many dozens of […]

Joe’s Cafe Review

Review by Dan Purdon, Utah Food Maven Friends, I have touched the golden ring of messy-burger nirvana, and it was good. Today I went to Joe’s Cafe, the new place on State St. in Orem across from the University Mall, with a fellow burger aficionado friend on his lunch break. We stood there in the […]

Noodles & Co

I have been craving Noodles & Co for some time. Shawn was nice enough to take me there. Once I started looking at their menu, I just couldn’t figure out what I wanted. There were so many things that looked delicious. The more I thought about it though, I couldn’t help but get my staple […]

California Pizza Kitchen

Shawn and I really enjoy pizza and because of that, we eat pizza quite a bit. We eat at Papa John’s, Little Caesars and others. Well one day, we decided to go somewhere different. Shawn suggested California Pizza Kitchen. I have been there once and did not like it. But I decided to be a […]

Taco Amigo

Probably my very favorite fast food restaurant is Taco Amigo. I have been hooked on that place since high school. While going to Pleasant Grove High School my friends introduced me to Taco Amigo and we went there quite a few times during our lunch breaks. Since high school I have introduced my roommates (before […]

Five Guys Burgers and Fries

I’ve seen the billboards on the freeway and I hear family and friends talking about them. Them who? Five Guys Burgers and Fries. Apparently my family and friends aren’t the only ones talking about their burgers and fries. As you walk in to Five Guys and take your first look around you can’t help but […]

Outback Steakhouse

Recently some friends of ours watched our puppy while we were out of town. To thank them, Shawn and I told them we would take them to any restaurant that they wanted to go to. They chose Outback Steakhouse in Orem. Now I have only been to Outback once and had a pretty good experience. […]

Hot Dog Month- The Hot Dog King

Wow, I don’t know where to start, because there is too many good things to say. The Hot Dog King certainly lives up to it’s name. Walking into The Hot Dog King you are greeted with smiles and bubbly personalities. When it was my turn to order I was given a menu to look at. […]
