I finally remembered to take a camera along when I visited The Other Place Restaurant in Salt Lake City, which has been one of my favorite inexpensive Greek-American eateries for a long time. Both times I was with other South Beach Diet fans, and we were going for lunch. The Other Place Lunch Menu has some nice South Beach Diet friendly choices, and if you’re a South Beach follower who’s not in Salt Lake, you still may get some good ideas about what to order in a Greek-American restaurant where you live.
The first time I went with my friend Bonnie and I order the Mezedakia plate in the top photo, which has pieces of marinated pork, cucumbers, feta cheese, tomatoes (hidden in the photo) and a couple of Dolmathes (which you can skip if you’re doing phase one.)
Bonnie had the Special House Chicken Salad. She asked them to go easy on the onions, because it normally comes with a pretty generous amount!
The second time I was with my sister Sandee and sister-in-law Lisa. Sandee and I split the Greek Salad (again without onions.) This was so tasty even though good tomatoes aren’t really even in season yet.
Sandee and I split the Mezedakia Plate this time (and you can see evidence of tomatoes peeking through in this photo.) We sent the Dolmathes home with Lisa for my brother Mark!
Lisa had the Pork Souvlaki plate, which came with this salad that I forgot to take a photo of until she had eaten half of it!
Lisa skipped the french fries and ordered the Souvlaki with vegetables, making it a very South Beach friendly lunch. The Other Place has huge portions, so for both these meals we took at least half the food home for lunch the next day!

The Other Place Restaurant doesn’t know I am writing about their restaurant (although they did wonder why I was taking pictures), and I paid for my meals myself for both of these visits.I don’t really write restaurant “reviews” but once in a while I talk about restaurants in Salt Lake and Restaurants in other cities where I’ve had great meals.
