A few more stores in the industrial neighborhood I failed to mention in my last post.
My Dough Girl — I was absolutely blown away by the deliciousness of their cookies! I was out having lunch with my mother visiting from Japan, and she wanted to have some American oatmeal cookies for dessert, so we looked up their website. Being from Japan and being used to eating cookies made with premium ingredients such as real butter, we were not remotely interested in cookies made of Crisco — however their website specified that their ingredients were of premium quality, so we decided to give it a try.
When we arrived they had a special summer cookie made with fresh raspberries. They offered a sample, so we gave it a try, and it was DELICIOUS!!! We decided to buy a few! I would highly recommend cookies from My Dough Girl. I also noticed they currently have a booth at the Saturday Farmer’s Market at Pioneer Park, so that would be a good place to try it also.
Frida Bistro — Can Mexican food be any more delicious AND fabulous??? Last week we had a friend visiting from Spain, so along with my Irish and Russian friends (as well as my lovely bf) who were all extremely well-dined, we took the restaurant for a gourmet connoisseur critique. The results? Unanimously two-thumbs up all around the table!! I had their Medallones de Atun, described as, “Ahi rubbed with guajillo pepper and seared. Served with queso fresco rice and romaine greens tossed in cilantro crema,” $22. Although the portions were smaller than expected, the food was outstandingly delicious and satisfying to the appetite. This is the sort of restaurant that really brings out the heart of Salt Lake City – industrial warehouse, great art, Mexican food.
