Blue Boar Restaurant

13 Dec

The Blue Boar Restaurant is located in the Blue Boar Inn in Midway. You have to see this place. It has a charming, old European feel to it in a sort of romantic way. The room is furnished with antiques from all over the world. Our waitress even brought me a printed sheet detailing where all of the items came from. Now on to the food. I started with the French Onion Grantinee which they prepared for me without the bread. I love french onion soup and this was no exception. I then had the Blue Boar Salad which the waitress recommended. This consisted of mixed greens, tomatoes and manchego cheese with a white balsamic vinaigrette. I thought it was the perfect amount of dressing and the big shreds of cheese on top certainly were appreciated. For my main, I had the Butternut Squash Risotto.

In it was radicchio, asparagus, manchego cheese and truffle oil. It was very good and it would have been the perfect end to my very filling meal. But then when the waitress was saying that their Creme Brulee was voted best in the state, I decided to continue eating. It was pretty straightforward as far as Creme Brulees go. There were no big surprises, but it was VERY good. The only problem was that I managed to eat so much at dinner that I felt a bit ill at the end of the night. I definitely want to return and eat a more appropriate amount.

Tarahumara

13 Dec

You would think that after eating an entire pizza, I would be full for the day. Clearly, you do not know me well. For dinner on our first night in Utah, we went to Tarahumara. I had the shrimp tacos with corn tortillas. These were awesome. They came with a generous side of rice and beans. One of the best features of this restaurant is their salsa bar. It features over 20 made-fresh-daily salsas. Yum.

Cafe Galleria

13 Dec

For the past five days, we were in Utah skiing which is why things have been a little quiet here. Within those days, we found some gluten-free friendly places that were great. On the day we got in, we went to lunch at Cafe Galleria in Midway, Utah. I had the Goat Cheese with Roasted Peppers GF Pizza. It included goat cheese, roasted bell peppers, mozzarella, caramelized onions, fresh tomatoes and oregano. This pizza was really good. Between the tasty toppings and the crust which was a little meatier than the typical GF crust, I ended up eating the whole thing. So much for self control.
