Memos Fruits » Mexican fruit stands are everywhere in Los Angeles, but when Nemorio Flores Garcia moved to Salt Lake City he couldn’t find a single one. So he opened Memos Fruit on Redwood Road. It sells fresh-cut tropical produce — coconut, pineapple, watermelon, mango, cantaloupe, cucumbers and jicama — in small and large bags. Customers can choose one fruit or get a mix. To make it traditional, get it sprinkled with tajin, a chile, lime and salt seasoning. Or, for those who want more heat, there are several hot sauces. Memos’ menu also includes the piña loca, a hollowed-out pineapple filled with fruit; and the Tostitos loco, a bag of corn chips topped with jicama, cucumbers, pig skins and your choice of seasonings and sauces.
Prices » $6-$10, cash only
Where » 1039 S. Redwood Road, Salt Lake City; open every day from noon to 7:30 p.m.
Poutine Your Mouth » When they’re not working their day jobs in technology sales or explosives research, Salt Lake City residents Jennifer Buckallew and Ted Warner are serving gourmet poutine at festivals and fairs across the country and in Utah. Since opening in February, they’ve been to California’s famed Coachella and Lightning in a Bottle music festivals, San Francisco’s Oyster Festival and Utah’s Pride. This week they were headed to Electric Forest Festival in Rothbury, Mich. Once they set up shop, they offer traditional and specialty poutine — think bacon and maple drizzle with a sunny-side-up egg or loaded baked potato. Buckallew said the savory sauce that’s served with all the poutine is vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free.
Prices » $7-$9
