Fiddling With My Food!

Enjoying your food is FUNdamental!

The Side Track Cafe in Heber City, Utah

Located on the corner of 1st South and Main Street in Heber City, Utah, is a delightful little eatery that you must visit!

It’s called the Side Track Cafe.  Established in an old house from Heber’s pioneer era, the cafe is reminiscent of bygone days.  The food is not!  You can get healthy nutritional shakes as well as home crafted meals.
It’s fun to eat there and I highly recommend the J-9 Burger, impregnated with fresh garlic.  It comes smothered in mushrooms and covered in melted bleu cheese.   The J-9 lands in the top two burgers of my life!
This burger is named for the proprietor, Janine (get it J – Nine?)  A  spunky little gal who is worth a stop, just to meet.  We asked to meet her and she came out of the kitchen to spend the next half hour with us.  We swapped recipes, told stories, took photos and enjoyed a wonderful meal.  Food should be an experience and at the Side Track it surely is.
I’ve always admired the way Sweetie can mix it up with folks entirely different from herself.  In Janine she met her match.  The two of them had little in common except food, but that didn’t stop her from learning about Janine’s Italian father and Gangster uncles or her Filipina mother (who “looks like Anette Funicello.)  That combination of Italian and Filipino cuisine traditions is evident in the adventuresome variety and creative blend of Janine’s food and flair.
