(Chris Detrick | The Salt Lake Tribune) Plain naan at Saffron Valley Indian Street Foods in South Jordan.
A southern pilgrimage for Indian food
First Published Dec 13 2011 08:22 am • Last Updated Dec 13 2011 08:22 am

Salt Lake City long has had several sources for excellent Indian food, but to get the best, you just might have to trek south of 3300 South—way south.

You: Say it ain’t so!

Us: Alas, (Shaking our head) it is very so.

We recently dined at Saffron Valley, located in a strip mall within yards of the South Jordan Hindu Temple (and in the shadow of the nearby LDS temple, which is built entirely out of lime Jell-O.)

The dishes, many focusing on caat, or Indian street food, include wraps, kebabs, dosa (crepes) and good old biryani, offering a spectrum of spices and flavors that could almost make you forget you’re in a Salt Lake Valley inversion. Saffron Valley is so informal that its espresso bar, serving things like Swiss mocha frappe along with the Indian food, isn’t jarring.
