Three of Salt Lake’s best food bloggers recommend your next best dining experience.

Star of India has recently moved from downtown to the Ramada on 1659 W. North Temple. With plenty of delicious vegetarian options, I’m a die-hard fan of their authentic Indian fare. The lunch buffet is still tops, and ample free parking and a simple online ordering system makes to-go orders a breeze.

Lebanese fare is traditionally veg-friendly, and Laziz Kitchen offers some of the best vegan and vegetarian dishes in Salt Lake City. Be sure to order the muhamara, a sweet and spicy spread served on house-made pita with lettuce. The gorgeous space, friendly service, and unique flavorful food make this a destination worth checking out.

Chile-Tepin has landed in the heart of downtown. A sophisticated, yet casual eatery that serves flavorful Mexican food that won’t bust one’s wallet. The vibes of this quaint restaurant are modern, new and sleek, but the traditional Mexican recipes still reign true. For the price, I was blown away at the quality and class that Chile-Tepin creates.

Originally born in Southern California, Slapfish finally made it to Utah. Trending on social media and in the stomachs of millions, this fast-casual joint is something every seafood lover needs to try. Made famous by the aesthetically pleasing grub and flavorful recipes, Slapfish is one of Utah’s newest, most popular eats. Try their Clobster Grilled Cheese or traditional Lobster Roll.

Look to this former Naked Fish Japanese Bistro for a modern-day Japanese Izakaya interpretation right in the heart of Salt Lake City. Ikigai Owner Johnny Kwon and Chef David
Hopps are serving up gorgeous bites of red snapper with green tea sea salt or a memorable koji beef sukiyaki with mushrooms and egg yolk.

Three talented chefs work their magic in their open kitchen at Table X. Seasonal favorites featuring pork from Christiansen Farms, housemade bread, and produce grown from the garden at the rear of the restaurant are hallmarks here. Although the menu is purposefully ever-changing, try the seared diver scallops with trout roe and vegetable dirt.
