Great news for those on a budget: you don’t need to spend a lot of money to eat like royalty in Salt Lake City. In fact, some of the city’s best and most popular restaurants serve their food for as little as $10 a plate. Delicious, authentic flavors of many cuisines await those with hardly more than pocket change to spend on a meal.
One of the most to-die-for eateries in all of Salt Lake City is Red Iguana. Owned and operated by Mexican-born geniuses, this restaurant serves nationally-famous moles slow-cooked according to secret family recipes. However, if you feel like grabbing a speedier bite hailing from the same country, swing by Barbacoa Mexican Grill for an enormous, build-your-own fresh-Mex burrito. Pack it with vegetables, grilled meat and tasty salsa, and you’ll be able to get two meals out of it.
Another of the most in-demand restaurants in all of Salt Lake City is the Himalayan Kitchen. Visit during the evening for a totally affordable and delicious dinner, or during lunch for their legendary, all-you-can-eat buffet–a remarkable deal, and a great way to sample the cuisines of the Himalayan Mountains.
Chanon Thai is yet another of the city’s most coveted restaurants. A tiny hole-in-the-wall just north of Liberty Park, Chanon Thai is filled with fresh aromas of herbs and is usually packed with customers. This eatery, which serves some of the best and most flavorful Thai food in all of Salt Lake, is an excellent candidate for takeaway.
