Does anyone else besides me think we have a shortage of good Mexican food in Salt Lake City? Besides the occasional long wait at Red Iguana (which is not the tex-mex I’m used to anyway) there’s not very many other options. So I decided to hunt for more, and in my pursuit I found Tarahumara in Midway.
Midway is a charming Swedish community just outside of Park City and right next door to Heber. With ginger bread looking architecture lining the main drive through town and the backdrop of the green mountains, you feel like you’ve stepped into a different country all together. Midway is one of my favorite day trips to take from Salt Lake. This past winter we took a day trip to Midway to see the town in its snowy state, which closely resembled a fairytale.
Tarahumara serves up classic mouthwatering Mexican Food, free chips with every meal, and a salsa bar to blow other salsa bars out of the water. The burritos are generous and the tres leche cake decadent. Oh and did I mention they have house-made sangria that is pretty tasty as well, especially to sip on as you enjoy their patio overlooking a stream.
Now, I’ll be honest, this place isn’t flashy… located in a strip mall with no waiter service, but that’s how Mexican food should be, right?
