Purgatory is a funky spot in Salt Lake City that merges Asian and American flavors to raise the bar on bar food. Owner and chef Hiro Tagai takes standard bar food and adds his own spin. For the Pork Nigiri, marinated, cooked pork is wrapped around sushi rice, topped with eel sauce and torched. Pickled mustard seed surrounds the pork like roe and the dish is garnished with chives, leeks and house-made chili oil. “It’s something you’ll never find in another restaurant,” said Guy.
