Rico Cafe and Market

Monday September 19, 2011
Rico Cafe and MarketMove over Mexican Food Chains, there is a cafe and market that is overwhelmingly more tasty than any chain restaurant can deliver. Rico's brand has a cafe and market on 700 East and 500 South, serving up fresh Mexican fare made with personality and authenticity.

During the weekdays at the cafe you will find chicken chipotle and chile verde for tacos as well as taco salads, rice bowls, enchiladas and tamales.

On the weekends the chef from Frida Bistro comes over and you'll see more unusual dishes like Pescado a la Veracruzana (Fish with Tomatoes, White Onions and Green Olives) or Pollo con Crema de Salsa Poblana (Chicken w/ Poblano Cream Sauce & Pasilla Peppe)- both pictured below.

One of our favorite dishes, Conchinita Pibil, (Pork Marinated in Orange Juice and Achiote) is served throughout the weekdays and makes for a super tasty taco.  Their tacos are $2 each for $5 for a plate with two sides.

Rico Cafe & Market is located at 779 South 500 East in Salt Lake City.
