I can’t stop eating at this restaurant

mountain west burrito provo utah

It’s called Mountain West Burrito. It’s in a freaking gas station. It’s my new favorite restaurant.

Basically, it’s our version of the Chipotle craze sweeping the nation, only better for the following reasons: Joe, the owner, takes orders and waits tables like you wouldn’t believe. Dude is everywhere; serving chips, giving out organic lollipops to my kids, clearing my table. He knew my name after two visits. Impressive.

Not only that, but the tortillas, meat, produce etc are all locally sourced. Place even claims they don’t own a can opener! My taste buds concur.

So if you’re ever in Provo — “I think you’d dig it. You could do well here.” — run, don’t walk, to MWB.

Elote! Mexican corn on the cob blows my mind


20 Century Fox

All this time, our neighbors down south had corn figured out. Butter is nice, but the following is better, as prepared by my wife last week:

  • 4 ears corn
  • 3 tablespoons mayo
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • Half teaspoon lime zest
  • Half teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • Fourth teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Fourth teaspoon chili powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup of crumbled Cotija Cheese

Coat the corn with olive oil, grill it, then mix everything but the cheese and spread it on the corn. Roll in cheese. Enjoy!
