Hi, Jo and Farrier. I obviously haven't checked in with the forum for awhile. I am happy to see some other Utahns with the program! Some other restaurants I recommend would be:
Market Street Grill - I ask them to broil salmon with no oil or butter. I also ask for the boiled potatoes and other vegetable with no oil or butter. If the
current vegetable can't be done that way, I eliminate it. I sometimes order an asparagus side (also with no oil or butter). They do have
extra virgin olive oil they can bring to the table, so you can drizzle oil that has not been heated.
Asian Star - At the Asian Star (on Union Park Dr.), you can ask them to steam vegetables and shrimp. Be sure to tell them no oil, butter, or
sauce. Then you can add soy sauce yourself, if you like. They will also bring rice. This is not on the menu, but they will honor the
request. It is a good size serving.
Eva's Bakery - They have a couple of salads that work, and you can make substitutions. I had the pear arugula salad, and switched the maple
glazed almonds for marcona almonds and had light dressing. I always make sure the dressing is extra virgin olive oil. I left out the
goat cheese crostini. It was great.
Cafe Galleria - This is in Midway. They do not use oil in their pizza crust, which is good as they cook their pizzas at a very high temperature. I get the
marinara pizza without cheese and a few acceptable things - like artichokes, tomatoes, pineapple, arugula. However, I tell them
to leave off the garlic and oil which they put on the marinara.
Cafe Rio - At Cafe Rio I order the side salad with lettuce, pico, and guacamole. I don't get the dressing. If I am going home with it, I will add
my own black beans, mangoes, etc. and sometimes my own dressing.
Alamexo - They have a crab meat salad that works.
Takashi - I had some veggie sushi and ordered an acceptable sauce that was great. I can't find the name of that sauce right now. If I figure
it out, I will let you know.
