Arctic Circle’s halibut sandwich recognized by Zagat
Food » But it’s the fry sauce they talk about

It’s not often that land-locked Utah gets recognized for great seafood dining options.

But Arctic Circle’s halibut sandwich — along with its fries and original pink fry sauce – is Utah’s representative in Zagat’s "50 States, 50 Sandwiches" list released several weeks ago.

Ironically, the Zagat synopsis, seems to talk more about the fry sauce than the sandwich. It reads:

"Utah doesn’t have a ton of culinary claims to fame, but its most beloved condiment, Fry Sauce, was apparently invented at Arctic Circle restaurant in 1948. The sauce is essentially just a mixture of ketchup and mayonnaise (known elsewhere as ‘golf sauce’), but the restaurant claims to have a secret recipe on lockdown (and it’s available for purchase in bottles). While the chain is now regional, eating a halibut sandwich and fries with fry sauce is still a uniquely Utah experience."
