Bagels, Bialys & More!
Bagel lovers rejoice! A brick & mortar location of The Bagel Project has opened at 779 S. 500 East in Salt Lake City. In case you're unfamiliar, the name Bagel Project arose from the debate that a real bagel is impossible to make without using New York City tap water. Well, according to the owners, who hail from New Jersey, "200 pounds of flour and three months later ... we created the taste of our childhood!" The folks at The Bagel Project make their bagels from scratch without preservatives, sugar, eggs or honey—they are vegan. In addition to bagels, The Bagel Project also offers housemade bialys, cured fish, egg and whitefish salads, sandwiches and mandelbrodt pastries. The store is open Monday through Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. (or whenever they sell out of bagels). Phone 801-906-0698 for more information, or visit BagelProject.com.
Curry in the Kitchen
Steve Ballard—owner of Ogden's Sonora Grill—and his management team have opened a new Ogden eatery at 582 E. 25th St. called Thai Curry Kitchen (ThaiCurryKitchen.com). According to Ballard, all curries at Thai Curry Kitchen are made in-house, from scratch; no curry pastes, preservatives, food colorings or MSG are incorporated into the curries. In addition to an array of curry dishes like green curry with pork, sour orange curry, vegetarian jungle curry, beef panang curry and yellow Papuan vegetable curry, Thai Curry Kitchen also offers Thai salads and curry & salad combos.
