Salt Lake City, Utah: A Taste of Philly in SLC

Many cities across the USA have a “famous” food they are known for.  For example in New Orleans you have the Po Boy sandwich, in North Carolina you have some of the best Barbecue, in Philadelphia, you have the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich.

Although Salt Lake City has its famous eateries, it really doesn’t have a famous dish (maybe except jello and casseroles), but you can get a sample of flavors from around the country and around the world right here in SLC.  One of those is a taste of Philadelphia as in the Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich.  The best tasting Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich in Utah can be found at a restaurant known as Moochies Meatballs and More,  Moochies for short.

Moochies is a famous Salt Lake City restaurant.  In fact it was visited by none other than Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.  I have visited this restaurant twice, I have eaten the Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich and the Atomic Meatball Sandwich.  Both sandwiches are very good!  Between the two, I prefer the Cheese Steak Sandwich, it is juicy, the meat is tender, it is very cheesy, and it’s greasy, sloppy, and delicious.  I have not visited Philadelphia yet, but this is the best Philly Cheese Steak that I have ever eaten.  The atomic meatball sandwich is good too. It’s meatballs with marinara sauce and a spicy jalapeño sauce added.  It’s also just as messy, sloppy, greasy, and delicious, but it’s also spicy!

They have a few more sandwiches, salads, and pastas that are worth looking at and trying out, so next time you are in Salt Lake City, be sure to stop by Moochies to experience the goodness for yourself and join the likes of Guy Fieri and others who have tried out and enjoyed this delicious joint!
