Five Star BBQ in Orem, Utah

Favorite:


Best barbecue and sides in Utah County.





Pork Sandwich w/ Smoked Beans & Coleslaw
The beans are very important to me at a barbecue joint. These are my favorite.
The coleslaw was simple the way coleslaw is meant to be. 
Not only did I eat the coleslaw by itself, 
but I also loaded it on top of my pulled pork sandwich, 
and that right there is one of my all-time favorite meals.




Pumpkin Cake




Beef Brisket Plate w/ Bread, Housemade Chips, & JT's Brunswick Stew
I had never had Brunswick Stew. 
The Brunswick Stew is delicious and comforting; perfect for a cold Winter's day.

Apple Pie
Homemade pie crust.

Pantrucas in Provo, Utah

Favorite:



Pantrucas is located in Provo on Canyon Road, next to Days Market, over a few blocks Southwest of Timpview Highschool.

Beef Empanada w/ Salsa

Do you see what I see? "Fresh" fruit juice. FRESH.
I'm a juicer and a big fan of freshly juiced juice.


Left: Kid's meal w/ Rotisserie Chicken & Rice
Right: Fresh Peach Juice & Fresh Mango Juice
Yes, those are huge carafes full of peach and mango juice.
Well worth the $3.49.
So refreshing, slightly creamy, and sweet.


Churrasco Palta (steak, avocado, tomatoes)
This sandwich is loaded with fresh guacamole.
Avocado just happens to be in my top 3 favorite foods.

Oh, and we were informed this bread was freshly baked that morning in-house. Win.


Fried Fish w/ Spring Rice and Chilean Salad




Left: Fruit Emanada
Right: Alfajores milhojas
Alfajores Milhojas ("a thousand sheets)



Such a great couple. I felt like I was in the dining room of their home. I luh them.
Their cozy little restaurant deserves a lot of support.
