At Milagros restaurant in Orem, on the wall as you enter the dining room, you will find a very unique automated flying chile hanging on the wall. Yes, a flying chile that moves it wings. This unusual work of art was created by Guy Francis.
I have a few buddies, who frequent Milagros, that are professional illustrators. Guy Francis is one of them. Guy is a children’s book illustrator and has over two dozen books to his credit.
I’ve known Guy for almost 20 years and his works of art have lived on the walls of restaurants I have been involved with since Rosa’s. Guy is extremely talented in many areas besides book illustration. In the past few years, his art has leaped off the traditional canvas and have become a moving 3 dimensional experience.
In many Orem restaurants, they celebrate customer’s birthdays by singing to the special guest of honor. There are special traditions that develop within a business culture and birthday singing seems to be one of them.
At Milagros, we do not sing “Happy Birthday” in the dining room. It always seems so insincere with I’m eating out and watch waiters huddled around a table singing birthday regards.
However, we at Milagros take birthdays very seriously, that is if you are a part of the Milagros team.
The Mexican culture has played a big influence in our “over-the-top” birthday celebrations. And, I’m not talking about just chocolate cake. Our birthday cakes are not only baked with unique cake flavors, they are brightened up with fresh oranges, mangos, strawberries and kiwi. Read More→
If you asked me to choose my favorite Orem Restaurant I would have to say Milagros. This restaurant is my passion. If you know me well, you would know that it is not hard for me to go on about our customers, Milagros food and the fabulous art of local artists.
But lets go a different route. When I have a craving for different flavors I usually have a craving for something really different, something with unique spices that are different from Milagros.
One of My Favorite Orem Restaurants
Thai Drift in Orem fits the bill. It is spicy, fresh and I always get good service.
Thai Drift has some of the very best curry in Utah. The Red Curry is my favorite. They call it “The Mother Of All Curries” a title that fits. Read More→
