If we're friends on Facebook, then you know that when we went to Salt Lake a couple weeks ago, I fell in love with the place all over again and wanted to stay there forever and never return. Salt Lake just has something I need. I don't know what it is, but I like it. I like it a lot. It maybe has something to do with all the delicious food that you just can't find in Boise. But there are other things, too... Temples everywhere! Those crazy mountains! All the pretty old houses I want to live in! And the food. Definitely the food. Yeesh. But seriously, when can we go back Tyler?
Anyway, I can't remember if I'd been to Red Iguana more than once when I lived in Salt Lake, but I KNEW I had to take Tyler there during our stay. Since I moved back home, they've built a Red Iguana 2 around the corner from the original location and a Taste of Red Iguana in the new City Creek Mall. Saturday night during our stay it was decided that we would head there for dinner. We got there and holy long line out the door!!! Luckily the line at Red Iguana 2 wasn't as long and we couldn't pass up the free valet parking. We didn't have to wait long before we were stuffing our faces with the best Mexican food you could dream up. Tyler liked it so much he wanted to cry, that's how authentic it is. Poor Tyler was homesick for his mission. We almost went back the next night and we kicked ourselves afterwards for going somewhere else. I don't know the next time we'll be in Salt Lake, but you'll definitely be able to find us at Red Iguana.
^^Red Iguana. What's not to love about a place with such bright walls?!
^^Walking off our Red Iguana. Said Tyler, "Is it just me or is their capitol building a lot bigger than Boise's?" It's definitely bigger. And more majestic.
Not pictured from Red Iguana:
>>The Enrique Iglesias/Ricky Martin wannabe singer who plays the guitar and serenades you at your table while you stuff your face with chips and salsa. He was actually really good. Worth the trip alone. If you're into that sort of thing, I mean.
Other things we ate worth noting:
>>Pizza from The Pie
>>Breakfast from Blue Plate Diner
>>In 'N Out
P.S. Have you heard Jim Gaffigan's bit about eating on vacation? If not, Google that now. So. Accurate.
