Road Food: More food trucks roll into Utah
Dining » More food trucks roll into Utah, delivering everything from better burgers to wood-fired pizza to miso-glazed salmon.

< Previous Page

What to try • The signature sandwich is the Not-So-Philly Cheesesteak, a Chicago-style version of the Philadelphia favorite. Marino uses marinated Italian beef, and tops it with a blend of cheeses, peppers and a hefty helping of au jus. The flavors are why Italian beef is a must-have when visiting the Windy City.

Prices • Half-sandwiches $5; full sandwiches $5-$8

Sure Fire Pizza • pizza

Owner/vibe • Owner Jeffrey Whitehead and wife Melissa Whitehead purchased a portable wood-fired oven three summers ago and have been serving the Salt Lake valley fresh Italian style pizza ever since. The unique 5,000 pound truck draws customers in, but its the fresh taste of Italian imported ingredients that keeps them coming back for more.

What to try • The popular Margherita Pizza is an Italian classic. The mozzarella-covered thin crust is topped with San Marzano-style crushed tomatoes, locally grown fresh basil, Italian imported parmigiano reggiano, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The simplicity of the pizza allows the fresh ingredients to really come through. In just 90 seconds, the wood-fired oven cooked the pizza’s crust to flaky perfection.

Prices • $8

Waki Paki • Pakistani

Owner/vibe • Mo Burki, a native of Pakistan and a former mechanical engineer, brings "a fusion of the food he grew up with and the famous ‘street food’ of Pakistan" to various Salt Lake valley locations. Favorite haunts include Red Butte Garden and 200 East between the library and Washington Square.

What to have • The samosas ($3 for an order of two), available in beef and veggie, are small but packed with flavor. The seekh kebab roll (seasoned, locally sourced lamb with tomato and green chutney on a soft roll) is another winner.

Prices • $6-$8; sides, $3
