Food Review – Guadalahonkys

Published April 16, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

I would say this is the best Mexican food I have eaten since living in Utah.

We give this Restaurant 5 Pink Pig Snouts

Address: 136 East 12300 South Draper, UT 84020
(801) 571-3838

Type of Food: Mexican

Prices – $9.50 – $15.00

Decor & Atmosphere: Decor is authentic, fun and has a beachy vibe. They had straw hut overhangs over some of the booths. salt & pepper shakers were corona bottles. Booths were comfortable and roomy.

Service: Drinks were recceived quickly. It took about 15 minutes to even put in our order. But we did receive our meals within 30 minutes from sitting down.

Meal 1: Smothered chimichanga with ground beef and a side of chile relleno. Comes with spanish rice, refried beans and sour cream. $12.99

Drink: Raspberry Virgin Margaretta

Review Meal 1: Had chimichanga and chili relleno with green sauce. Good size portion, rice and beans cooked just right with good mild flavor. Two cooked peppers, red and green, garnished the plate. Peppers had amazing flavor and just enough nip, comparable to a banana pepper taste. the chimmi was great, thick and loaded with just the right amount of flavor. the chilli relleno had almost a tamale breading over it and just took away from the egg on the chilli. Less could have been more on this chilli relleno.

Review on Drink: Raspberry Virgin Margaretta was good size and nice taste of raspberry, but tasted more like a smoothie than a margarrita. P.S. make sure they charge you for the virgin and not the whole margarrita.

Meal 2: Fajitas – Served with fresh sauteed veggies. Spanish rice, refried beans, sour cream, guacamole, pica de gallo salsa and 3 warm tortillas $12.99

Review Meal 2: The meat was flavorful and tender, the veggies were green peppers, onions, squash and zucchini sauteed to perfection. I loved the whole plateful. My mouth was in food heaven throughout the entire meal.

Here are a couple shots from there Menu

Having a Sweet Tooth

Published April 3, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

I was having a really bad sweet tooth attack today. so what better way to fill my need for a sweet fix was to go to “the Sweet Tooth Fairy” click here

I bought a dozen of there cakebites: lemon, red velvet, salt carmel, samoa and carrot cake ($10.00 for a dozen)

the samoa bite was my favorite

these are a must try.
I am hoping to make something like these for the upcoming party I am throwing for my hubby and sister later this month.

Food Review – Schmidt’s Pastry Cottage

Published March 31, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

This place had a fun look on the outside and screamed to me “come in”, so in we went.

We give this Restaurant 3 Pink Pig Snouts

Located at: 1133 West South Jordan Parkway
South Jordan, Utah  84095

(there is also one in taylorsville and salt lake city)


Type of Food: hot & cold sandwiches, soups and of course pastries

Prices – $7.00 – $10.00 (our lunches were $6.99-$7.99 each)

Decor & Atmosphere:  The decor and atmosphere were horrid.  From outside you would expect to enter a cute and cozy cottage styled atmosphere.  Instead we were assaulted with a confused cacophony of marble walls, industrial vent tubes and bland neutral colors.

Service:  Fast, friendly and drink refills were available.

Meal 1:  Philly Cheese steak on focaccia bread.  Included Lays chips and your choice of brownie, mint brownie or eclair $6.99 drink: sprite $1.99 for large with refills

Review:  Bread was moist and flavorful, meat and cheese a bit skimpy.  Mediocre sums it up.  The best part of the plate was the brownie, which was rich and tasty.

Meal 2:  Turkey bacon tomato sandwich on sourdough bread.  Included Lays potato chips and choice of brownie, mint brownie or eclair.  Avocado was $1.00 extra for a total of $7.99.  Drink: coke $1.99 large with refills

Review:  Sandwich was very good and flavorful.  Two complaints:  a) The crust of the bread was very hard and b) even though i paid $1.00 extra for avocado, the portion was a very small slice >^(  I chose the mint brownie for my desert and, like the plain brownie, was rich and tasty.

Since the pastries were the true highlight of the meal, here are some selections from their menu that might be worth a go:

Mint Cookie

Orange Butterflakes


Food Review – Thai Basil

Published March 18, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

If you are wanting to try some fantastic Thai food, this is the place to go.

Me and my spouse went and tried this place out today.

We give this Restaurant 4 Pink Pig Snouts

Located at: 12600 South 2778 West,  Riverton, UT 84065

(there is also one in cottonwood heights)


Type of Food: Thai Cuisine                      Serves Lunch & Dinner

Prices – $7.00 – $15.00  (our lunches were $7.50 each)

Decor & Atmosphere – Fantastic decor – reds & gold’s, fun gold wall when you first walk in, metal leaves on the wall, chalk elephant in-between an entry way (this is where they write their specials and other things). Music didn’t match atmosphere though.

Service: Fast, friendly and drink refills were plentiful.

Meal 1 – L3 Chicken Teriyaki – grilled chicken breast & house teriyaki sauce $7.50 comes with soup

Meal 2 – L6 *Thai Green Curry – green curry w/coconut milk, bamboo shoot, bell pepper, mushroom & basil. with this you get pot-stickers, white rice and soup with the options of meat: chicken, beef, tofu or shrimp $7.50

we both chose the egg drop soup – we both gave it 5 snouts (loved their soy sauce container, it was a cute little white ceramic deal that I would have loved to have taken home with me.)

Review on Meal 1 – Con’s – Chicken not tender enough, sauce more soy flavor than teriyaki, but the extra sauce they give you did taste more Teriyaki and was great. rice was a little mushy. Pro’s – Wonderful presentation/plating, good taste on the whole.

Review on Meal 2 – Con’s – None, Pro’s – presentation/plating, best pot-stickers I have ever eaten with great sauce, green sauce starts mild and ends in a spicy runner. rice was sticky and perfect for the dish.

Type of Food: Japanese Cuisine

Favorite dish: Teriaki chicken and also there pot stickers are heavenly.

Prices – side dishes range from $2.00-$4.00

main dishes up to $8.00

Service – friendly but a little unorganized in the back.  expect to wait 10-20 minutes for food. but really worth the wait.
