UPDATE: G is now closed…sad :'(
I figured I should begin with a post that will allow those who stumble upon my own little Wonderland a glimpse into the mind behind the words. My name is Sam, yes Sam I Am, and I do indeed like green eggs and ham, not to mention exotic cars, movies, books, video games, and food. I also happen to like a cozy little spot called “g”.
Located at 70 North Geneva Road in Orem, UT, “g” is a fantastic little restaurant. Out of the way, and frequented by those in the know, the “g” is open Monday – Friday, from 11am to I’m not actually sure when. Lunch is always $6.50, and includes a roll, salad, a side or three, and a main course. The menu changes every week, and is available by visiting their website. Drinks are $1 extra, and dessert if you so desire is $1.50.
The food is fantastic! I’ve yet to have anything I that wasn’t delicious, and who can argue with such an incredible price? So far, I’ve had the Parmesan Chicken and Spinach Alfredo, the Sirloin Steak, and most recently the Thanksgiving Turkey Feast. So what’s the deal? $6.50? For real?
As it turns out, the wizard behind the curtain is Guillermo Cruz. He runs a catering business in the evenings, but found he was bored during the day and wanted to cook more, so he gutted the lower level of an older house, and turned it into a cozy spot for lunch. I’d get there early, as the place gets busy after noon.
The weekly menu is now available at PersonalChefG.com. You can also receive it by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Add to Menu Mailing List.
For those who love food as much as I do and are looking for a delicious Utah restaurant, be sure to check out the “g” spot 🙂
UPDATE: I’ve been here probably 40 times since my original posting, have had something different almost every time I’ve been, and have yet to have anything that wasn’t absolutely fantastic. The stuffed steak is one of my favorites. The best I’ve had so far is an Argentinian dish of shredded beef, beans, rice and fried plantains. Delicious!
