Eats of Asia – CrossRoads Eats

L and I visit CrossRoads Market every weekend. I drop by Regina Meats for boneless chicken thighs and ground pork. I purchase my farm fresh eggs, whole chicken and honey at Henry and Helen's Honey Stand. Our last stop is at Chongo's Produce for guacamole, chips and vegetables. We stopped by Eat's of Asia because… Continue reading Eats of Asia – CrossRoads Eats

Sukiyaki House – Valentine’s dinner

I took L out for Valentine’s Day. I picked Sukiyaki House because he knows the owner’s son and he’s heard a lot about the restaurant’s legendary special dinner events. For this post, let’s listen to L’s favourite Japanese band, Tokyo No.1 Soul Set. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Klh5yUdHppg When I received a call from the restaurant to confirm my… Continue reading Sukiyaki House – Valentine’s dinner

Rodney’s Oyster House – Happy Hour

Barbie and I checked out Rodney’s Oyster House for happy hour. The Calgary location is more upscale than Rodney’s locations in Vancouver. Judging from the exterior, I was surprised to find the restaurant was so spacious. I liked the use of white in the decor, the high ceilings and the ‘catch’ of netted lights in… Continue reading Rodney’s Oyster House – Happy Hour

Garden of Italy – Nenshi Approved

I'm always keen to know where politicians (e.g. Mayor Nenshi) and food writers (e.g. Gwendolyn Richards) dine in Calgary. I'm interested in where they eat and what they order. I swear I'm not a creep. For this post, let’s listen to Mariah Carey’s Obsessed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1Yt0xJKDY8 I've taken a class with Richards, so I know she… Continue reading Garden of Italy – Nenshi Approved

White Spot – Part Deux

I asked my father Ludwig where he wanted to go for breakfast. White Spot he responded, without a moment’s hesitation. However, he stressed that we were not to eat at the location inside Richmond Centre. Though I didn’t ask him why, he proceeded to inform me the reason. First, let’s put on some music. As… Continue reading White Spot – Part Deux

New Tang Dynasty Restaurant

New Tang Dynasty is one of my favourite spots for lunch in Chinatown. The flavours are fierce and spicy. The portions are generous, particularly the lamb dishes. For this post let's listen to Johnny Cash - Hurt. My father loves Johnny Cash plus I did hurt myself at New Tang. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vt1Pwfnh5pc We started off with… Continue reading New Tang Dynasty Restaurant

Cactus Club – Yelp Elite Event

I write reviews on Yelp solely to get invited to their 'elite' parties. Most recently, I attended a Taste of Cactus Club. Holy smokes - their management team (Elim, Jim, Curtis and Kurt) can throw down. We were so spoiled, I felt like a rock star. For this post, I think Guns N' Roses 'Welcome… Continue reading Cactus Club – Yelp Elite Event

Bow Tie Pizza – Stampede 2017 Series

Bow Tie Pizza invited me to try some of their product for free. After I read Jomar's posting on Zomato about his positive experience, I was game. For this posting, I selected Miike Snow because Bow Tie's vegan pizza makes me a little Genghis Khan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_SlAzsXa7E From Killarney to Bow Tie, it was about a… Continue reading Bow Tie Pizza – Stampede 2017 Series
