Last month at a Conference, I shared that I have a love affair with food. This definitely got everyone’s attention. It’s one of those affairs that you don’t need to keep secret. Often people ask me where they should go to eat and they are a little confused when I don’t immediately have an answer. That is because I like to get the look & feel of the place, a restaurant that really calls you from within. I have described it as looking for “intangibles;” meaning, I don’t know what I am looking for but will know it when I see it.
Lately I have been restaurant hunting. While running errands or on my way to an appointment, I will give myself extra time and take a route not previously driven. I will keep my eyes open with those reticular activators Dan mentions. It may sound childish but I have so much fun doing this. And the biggest benefit: I find some amazing restaurant. They are off-the-beaten-path and are the Chef and Owner are usually the same person. They are often the Server also.
This week I was blessed to have an article published about such a place here in Salt Lake. You would think that it should be a Mechanic’s Shop given the location but it’s one of the best Philly Cheesesteaks in the City. Please enjoy:
appreciate any feedback and ratings on the article. That keeps me at the top of their list of Contributors.
I am having so much fun with this and the enthusiasm is contagious. One friend is asking every week which place we are eating at next. He has started sending my recommendations. I love it.
Thank you for being on this journey with me.
