ST. GEORGE- “What’s on the Menu” host Sheldon Demke is back, and this week he took his friend Nikki Hope to the new Onyx Cafe location on St. George Boulevard.
Offering wood-fired pizzas with bold flavors and local ingredients, Onyx Cafe offers recipes you won’t find anywhere else. Owner and Chef Devon Roberts is a master of his craft and prepares almost everything on the menu from scratch, including delicious chocolate drinks.
Discover the unique flavors of Onyx Cafe with Sheldon and Nikki in this week’s episode of “What’s on the menu” in the media player above.
Demke and Hope tried the Mayan, an iced cocoa that knocked their socks off, and the hot chocolate, which Demke said you had to taste for yourself to believe it.
“I’m literally broke now,” he added. “I can’t get hot chocolate anywhere else.”
They also enjoyed two tall glasses of homemade root beer, which Roberts makes using his own sarsaparilla recipe.
After digging into a delicious Margherita pizza with fresh mozzarella cheese and fresh basil, the duo explored one of the most unique dishes on the cafe’s menu. Khachapuri is a traditional bread filled with cheese that comes from Georgia – the country, not the state – and is full of spice.
“There are so many flavors bouncing around in my mouth,” Demke said. “If you haven’t been to Onyx Cafe, you have to do yourself a favor and experience it for yourself.”
At Onyx Cafe, foodies are sure to enjoy an artisanal dining experience hard to match in southern Utah.
“We take the time to create flavors the way we think they should be presented to people,” Roberts said. “We are constantly improving and constantly trying to improve our menu.”
