Windy's Sukiyaki just turned 40 this last year and I can't help but think, my grandma was probably there when it Windy's opened!

In fact, now that I think about it, Stephanie's grandma was probably there too.  Before Stephanie and I started this blog, we met on Instagram, but before all this social media jazz, our grandmas KNEW each other. Like, for forever, and lived in the same neighborhood in Ogden.

Our parents went to the same high school.  Steph and I actually were raised in the same neighborhood, it's like we were meant to start The Salt Project.  Windy's has been local favorite with our families and we are excited to keep the tradition with our kids too!

We were able to book a Private Tea Room.  It was a good thing too, because with 6 kids, it ain't no easy thang going out to eat! 

Windy Sukiyaki Sushi Rolls

Baby Eating

The food was pretty delish.  It was Dan and Steph's kids first time eating sushi.

While the kids might not have been the biggest fans (especially with the fishier rolls) we, the parents loved it. 

Chicken Nuggets

They really enjoyed the tempura vegetables and chicken though.   I got the Salmon Dinner and it was scrumptious.  Plus it came with a cilantro sauce (always a favorite.) Yum.

We loved how secluded our little tea room was, it kept the kids quite contained and no one had a melt-down or anything. ;)  The food was lovely to behold and the company even better.  It's always nice to have a successful dinner outing. 

If you get a chance, check out Windy's!  If you aren't following them on Instagram, you should, because they have giveaways every Monday.  @3809riverdale  Also, we, well, Stephanie and Dan made this fun video of our visit.  Let us know what you think!

We love Windy's. We have three generations enjoying your great food, and many of our close friends and family have enjoyed dinner there with us. Windy's is a favorite of ours to entertain our loved ones. We have become very close to your waitress's Freddie and Sharon and claim them as our own as we love them very much. Kudos to your excellent food and staff. Look forward to seeing you soon.

We LOVE Windy's. My family has been going there since I was little! (I'm 31) My husband and I go there a couple times a month and bring our 6 kids along too! The Pork, Beef Gyoza is our family fave!

There is pizza place in the mountains that my family has always gone to. Every time I go back to Idaho we go there. The memories are amazing and so is the food.

Our family favorites change depending on where we live at the time (military family), but we loved going out for sushi when we lived in Japan! Windy's is as close to authentic we've found so far in the area :)

I have been with my now Fiancé for almost 4 years. We have made it a thing to try and go to Windy's at least once a month. We always get a roll or two to share, and then share a plate. Its our little thing we do to get out and enjoy ourselves :)
