Utah’s Exceptional Burgers: Where to Get Them this Week

Meditrina’s Mushroom and Brie Burger is back! They also began serving their new Express Lunch this week, followed by a Snack Happy Hour. On Mondays and Wednesdays Warrens Craft Burger on Ogden’s Historic 25th Street features Brews n’ Bites, with 50% off all appetizers and $8 pitchers of beer.



I just heard from Meditrina chef/owner Jen Gilroy who checked in to tell me that Meditrina began serving their new Express Lunch this week. Lunch hours are from 11 AM to 3 PM, followed by a Snack Happy Hour from 3 to 5 PM. The Express Lunch is aimed at customers who want to enjoy items like Meditrina’s famous Mushroom and Brie Burger (now back on the menu) in 45 minutes or under. Additional lunch items can be found on the Meditrina web site and include the Power Chop Salad with kale, quinoa and maple Champagne vinaigrette, and entrees such as Grilled Utah Trout. Call 801-485-2055 for reservations.


Warrens Craft Burger

On Mondays and Wednesdays Warrens Craft Burger on Ogden’s Historic 25th Street features Brews n’ Bites, with 50% off all appetizers and $8 pitchers of beer. Founded by retired Roy Sheriff Doug Warren in 1957, Warrens continues today with the Sheriff’s simple philosophy carried out by current owner Kirk Dean: to start daily with food made from scratch — a “fresh things first” approach. In addition to a lengthy and eclectic selection of burgers, Craftburger also features salads and comfort foods like halibut & fries, patty melt, Rocky Mtn. Reuben (my favorite), Southwest wrap and much, much more, including a full bar menu.


Food: Fact or Fiction?

One of my all-time favorite films is Spinal Tap, so of course I’m also a big Michael McKean fan. On Sunday, April 8th the Cooking Channel premiers Food: Fact or Fiction? with host Michael McKean, who is out to bust the most notorious food myths. This season’s lineup includes “Wedding Chows” (with special guest Joe Mantegna), “Biting Word” (about food cliches), “Declassified” (deep fried faves) and Boston-based “Townie Treats.” Sundays at 8 PM Mountain Standard Time.

    Salmon is an incredibly versatile fish for grilling. Marinating salmon fillets in a simple uncooked marinade using miso, mirin, ginger, and a few other ingredients results in a wonderful grilled salmon dish with subtle Asian Flavors. Most of the marinade ingredients can be found in your favorite Asian market or even a decent regular supermarket.

  • Balsamic Flat Iron Steak

    When it comes to simple recipes, it really doesn’t get much easier than this one for grilled flat iron steak that is marinated in balsamic vinegar. The balsamic gives the meat a slightly sweet and tart flavor that is unbeatable. 

  • Beer-Braised Boneless Short Ribs

    Braising with beer is one of the easiest entry points into cooking with beer. One of my favorite recipes is beef short ribs braised with Irish stout. It’s pretty simple and takes only about 15 minutes of prep time. Simply sit back and sip some stout while the short ribs braise.

  • Sri Lankan Chicken Curry

    When I was in graduate school a colleague of mine from Sri Lanka would occasionally invite me and some other students over for dinner. I will never forget the wonderful flavors of the Sri Lankan curries that Anne Marie made for us.
