I can do this. I’ll start with a story of seeing a random Facebook ad a year or two ago that was for some article about food in gas stations. The cover photo was a picture of chicken tikka masala that looked good and that’s why I clicked. Interestingly enough, it was in Logan. A week or two later my dad went up there for one reason or another. He brought some back and it was good. A week or so ago I YouTubed Diners, Drive-ins & Dives Utah to see what places were featured and that one came up. The guy shows the entire cooking process (as a side note I’ve eaten Indian food across the country [and in Europe] more than I’ve eaten any other food, and swear the best food is in Utah [or it could just be that’s where I first became accustomed to it] and the Utah area definitely has a unique style to it that isn’t the same across the country [not all Utah places, though, as a small few I haven’t been impressed with]). Also note that though I can make a good tikka masala dish, I’ve never really been able to get it to approximate the style I’d taste in a Utah restaurant. This guy spills all the beans. I do have a suspicion that when I make this it won’t taste the same.


Also, the best place I’ve ever had Cajun pasta was at Iggy’s, and those bastards closed all their locations. I have never found another places that does anything similar, and in fact anywhere else that does Cajun pasta is often awful comparatively. Most of the time it’s Alfredo with Cajun seasoning (damn I hate that), but I’d be interested in trying this guy’s version of it next time I’m in Logan.

Also, best pasta type hands down is linguine fini. I don’t care for penne.

I could take you to a few good Indian places in Manchester. And one in Berlin. Mostly though I was eating doner kebab.

In biology's "units of selection" debate, selfish individuals have a selective advantage over altruistic ones. But units composed of altruistic individuals, whether they be sports teams or military units, out-compete teams comprised of selfish individuals. The only time I won a sports championship was the 1983 Salt Lake City Floor Hockey League Championship. That was a team that thrived on teamwork. And my old army unit: Anyone would have thrown themselves on a hand grenade to save a fellow soldier. Teamwork wins.
Thank you, Ayn Rand.

I lived for one year in Manchester, by Whitworth Park on Oxford Rd. I was a student so kebabs and Subway was the predominant diet. There were some great indian restaurants in Rusholme. Such a great city (not for tourism but for going to concerts, nightlife and soccer).

My wife and I were taking our oldest to London (and then up to Scotland) in April 2020 and we were all excited about trying the Indian food there. Yeah, that’s a trip that didn’t materialize and looks like it never will.

The worst tikka masala I ever tried in my life came from Santa Monica. I don’t exaggerate when I say that it tasted like they squeezed a plain tomato over rice.

Best Utah restaurants:
Kohinoor, Orem.
Red Fort, St. George.
India Palace, Provo.
Royal India, Sandy.

The biggest one I’ve yet to try is Saffron Valley.

I don't like people who are different from me, but I'll never say this aloud in public. I have a very narrow urethra, which my doctor tells me is potentially fatal. But he believes in Fauci (TM) science, and I graduated from Cache Valley Cheese High School, so he can shove his liberal arts diplomas up his peninsula.

So why do you think indian food is so good in Utah? For instance, I'm from Lima (Peru) and both japanese and chinese food are amazing, and that's because both have used traditional techniques with peruvian ingredients and flavors (a country that enjoys access to the Pacific Ocean, the Andes and the Amazon rainforest...and the diversity that comes with it) The fusion is spectacular. On a side note, Peru, along with Brazil, has one of the largest japenese communities outside Japan in the world.
