You like curry? You like fried chicken? Why not mix the two together right? Well that’s the main staple at Curry Fried Chicken – fabulously crunchy and delicious juicy fried chicken, with a hint of sweetness and spice from curry spices.
In addition to the CFC there’s plenty more to sample from great wraps and imported sodas.

One of SLC’s finest spots to grab a bite to eat on the go – mixing both quality and affordability. My favorite here is the classic gyro and a side of salty fries. The gyro is one of the best in town, on a super fluffy pita bread, tons of rich tzatziki and topped off with red onion and tomato.
If gyros aren’t your thing, the menu goes on and on for seemingly ever, this scan was taken from a mailer received in the post mid 2011:

Peruvian cuisine offers a glimpse into a nation influenced by diverse immigration. Chinese influenced dishes like fried rice are great at El Rocoto, as are Italian ones such as the heady Basil-Spinach tossed noodles with grilled chicken.
My favorite though is Pollo A La Brasa – roasted chicken. One of Peru’s national dishes, comes spice rubbed at El Rocoto and also available in three portion sizes: 1/4, 1/2 and whole chicken. Whatever you pick though will surely be wondefully succulent choice!
These menu snaps were taken in March 2012:

The following menu comes from the Plum Alley. While this new restaurant’s menu is online partially, it is already out of date, given the evolving nature of the restaurant. This pictures was taken February 2012:
This great new restaurant from the folks behind the Copper Onion already shows a lot of promise. I can’t wait to see how the menu continues to take shape over the coming months. Already, the pork belly steam buns are an out of this world, juicy, fatty treat.

The following are photographs of Black Widow’s menu from the summer of 2011. Strangely their website seemed to go offline, a few weeks after my first few visits. I thought it was perhaps a brief snafu, but as its still offline, this seems like a great time to post these photos. After all, this is a great restaurant.
In my humble opinion, skip the entrees and stick to the sandwich selections which are almost universally fantastic, not to mention wallet friendly too. Probably my favorite item off the whole menu is the sublime Cuban sandwich. A paltry $8 is all it takes to secure this greasy messy pressed and grilled sandwich, that comprises roasted ham, swiss, smoked pork, house made pickles and spicy aioli. Your doctor might not thank you for it, but your stomach will.

Long Life Vegi house has been a staple of 33rd South for more than two decades now. The restaurant has served as a delicious haven for Vegetarians and open minded meat eaters alike. The pictures below are scans from a takeaway menu circa early 2011.
Our particular favorites are the wonderful steamed pot stickers (just be wary of the time to prepare) followed up by an order of the crunchy, spicy and sweet Kung Pao. With these great prices and equally great food its easy to imagine them still here in another 20 years time.

Elizabeth’s Bakery And Tea Shop doesn’t have a formal menu as such for their baked goods (see here for a full review of Elizabeth’s. For food you just need to belly up to the various chiller cabinets and pick out your sweet and savory treats manually. For tea though, they do have a handy menu, pictured below and taken in June 2011:
Really though, for the full English experience, go with the PG Tips – a full bodied, strong black tea.

These pictures show the menu at Edo Kitchen, in the Sugarhouse area. At the top is the visual breakdown of the minimal menu of Nigerian food – and below the pricing board. I found Nigerian food a particularly interesting adventure into both taste and texture.
If you’re looking to invigorate your palate and try something new, stop by for their Egusi soup with fufu or maybe fried rice, with coconut stew and plantain.

This photograph of the Old Dutch Store’s deli menu comes from Spring of 2011:
I’ve never yet sampled their food yet, but have browsed their shelves of European imports and found a few tasty treats, such as fruit styled Marzipan, biscuits, chocolate, candy and the like. I only hear good things about their Deli too.
