I had to run some errands in town, by the way... only ONE Bank of America ATM?!?! And we decided to stop in for greek food at Greek Souvlaki in Downtown SLC. Located at 404 East 300 South, this small but remarkable restaurant can leave you stuffed! I ordered a standard Gyro with white sauce and feta cheese, and had plenty left over for a snack later that evening. My girlfriend, Christy had the same only with onions. Another cool thing about the restaurant was the outdoor seating area.
It isn't a whole lot, but the uneven pavement, the tree and the little nook area equal unique in my book. The restaurant caters to any event too! They've got other locations, check out their website to see which one is nearest you! We will certainly be back as they served me the best gyro I've had in a long time! What's your favorite menu item at Greek Souvlaki? We want to know so we can try it out ourselves!
Was able to cruise down to the City Creek Mall Thursday after a short day of work. The pleasant day was paired with a great atmosphere, and this outdoor mall is warm and welcoming. I followed City Creek, which winds through a rock-lined riverbed and offers a relaxing environment with benches for resting. This is a beautiful mall that apparently has a retractable roof? Makes sense for the winter time!
At times, it's hard to believe that this 3 block shopping mall is nestled neatly in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, but it is. There seems to be a good amount of apartments too. I wish I had more time there, I'm not much of a shopper but will make it a point to come back with an update!
Share your photos and experiences at City Creek Mall!
After I finished up eating I walked around checking out the neighborhood. I've spent a lot of time out in Austin, and this had the same sort of feel to me.
I like this wall art, especially the dog.
Heres a cool gym business I saw:
I was able to read up about how "Sugar House" got it's name, and the significance of beets, and why they have statues of them.
Have any pics or memories of Sugar House? We wanna hear about it below!
Oh man! What a cool part of town. So far, my favorite. My first stop was Flat Bread Neapolitan Pizzeria. Wasn't too sure about the exclusivity to the city this restaurant is, but I had never seen one and was hungry. Sitting right on the corner of E. 2100 S and McClelland St. in Salt Lake City. This was some really good Neapolitan pizza, man. American style pizza is fairly different than some other pizza cultures around the world, and this pizza resembles, and reminds me a lot of pizza that I have eaten on my travels throughout (mostly) Europe. Flat Bread uses a wood-fired oven and vine-ripened ingredients to make the best pizza that I've had in town so far. The Diavola pizza that I ordered came out steaming hot and fairly quickly, and teamed nicely with the Uinta Brewing Co. Double Imperial Black IPA that Cassie the waitress had brought to me earlier.
The seating arrangement is really cool, and so is the decor. A mix of urban and industrial with an entire glass wall that opened up like a garage door to allow the outdoor in and vice-versa.
