Restaurants to try near Orem

When it comes to food and finding somewhere to eat, it can be hard to decide where to go. As fellow high school students, me and my friends have the problem of finding somewhere to eat all the time. This past week I tried to find some places that maybe you haven’t heard of. Orem has all sorts of food but there are also places in neighboring cities like Provo and Vineyard that are worth a drive to try. I also tried to find different types of foods like desserts for when you’re craving something sweet.
A food that I don’t hear get the credit it deserves is Indian food, it has so much flavor and is different from most foods you try. Bombay house is the best when it comes to Indian food, located in provo it is worth every penny. The whole vibe of the restaurant was perfect. You can smell the delicious food the second you walk in. Everything I tried here was so good but hands down my favorite was the Chicken Tikka Masala. This is a perfect spot for dining in with great service or to take out and eat at home.
Next up is Raising Canes, also located in Provo. While I’m sure most people have heard of it, they may think it doesn’t live up to the hype or are intimidated by the long lines. It’s worth every second of the wait, I wait in the line all the time and they’re always fast. The chicken is always hot and crispy, the fries have a little crunch on the outside, the toast is so fluffy and buttery it basically melts in your mouth. All that is great but the star of the show is the signature canes sauce it takes everything you dip it into to another level. With a very simple menu it’s hard to go wrong here, perfect anytime of day while staying open late to help you cure those late night cravings.
Next on the list to treat your sweet tooth we have Sweet Rolled Tacos located in South Orem. Their signature dessert is ice cream rolled and then placed in a sweet taco shell with over 20 flavors there is something for everyone. If ice cream isn’t your thing they also offer teas, milkshakes, lemonade, coffee and slushies. I got the s’mores galore and it was so good, definitely one of my favorite desserts I’ve tried. You can get ice cream anywhere but what makes it special? Well when they roll it and put it in a taco shell, it takes it to a whole new level!
While looking for something to eat can sometimes feel like a lost cause, there is always something new to try. No matter what you’re craving it never hurts to try something new, and it’s always fun to try with friends or family.
