With a population of about 3 million, Utah is a western state with mild climates and beautiful mountains. The state is rich in tourism and offers many attractions and fine eating establishments, from mom-and-pop joints to five-star steakhouses and also many culture-based eating venues. Many of Utah's iconic dishes stem back to the Native Americans but continue to be popular choices to locals and visitors. Some foods that are symbolic to Utah are fry sauce, apple beer, frog eye salad and funeral potatoes. Unknown to many, Jello is Utah’s official state snack. You'll find several unique dining options near the national parks of Zion and Bryce Canyon.
