Mike Roberts, aka the No Name Gourmet turned me on to a new place in Bountiful called Mo' Bettah Steaks (273 W. 500 South). Now, the first thing you need to know about Mo' Bettah Steaks is that it's not a steak house. No ribeye, no filet mignon, no NY strip, no Porterhouse. This is Hawaiian-style "steak," often called "steak plates," meaning grilled or roasted beef, chicken and pork, often marinated first in teriyaki sauce.
The boneless meat (usually shredded) comes served on Styrofoam with sides like brown or white rice and really delicious homemade macaroni salad. Typical combo plates run from about $5.50 to $8.50. I tried the lunch special kahlua pork, which was terrific.
The owners -- brothers Kimo and Kalani Mack -- hail from Kaneohe, Hawaii and dish up Hawaiian-style good vibes and friendly service at Mo' Bettah Steaks, along with surf movies and great Hawaiian tunes. Feel free to wear shorts and flip-flops. %uFFFD
