Kamloops and Jaime were in town! I made reservations at Cotto Italian Comfort Food in Kensington. Before we left for dinner, we shared a bottle of wine at my house - Pinot Noir, Iris Vineyards (Oregon, Willamette Valley). Kamloops and L enjoyed this wine more than I did.

Banh Mi Très Bon – Richmond

I was sick after Beep Beep's birthday dinner. I knew it wasn't from the dinner as I was nauseous much earlier in the day. When I woke up on Sunday, I hung out with Naomi until Beep Beep picked me up to visit my father Ludwig and then to the airport. On the way to… Continue reading Banh Mi Très Bon – Richmond

Redheads

My husband and I dine at Redheads every week. Recently, Redheads started to offer Japanese tapas. We've only gotten through half the menu. What I like about the tapas menu is we can try so many different items but not feel stuffed. The mini seaweed ($2.50) was a generous quantity for the price. I like… Continue reading Redheads

Mamak Dang Malaysian Fusion Cuisine Downtown Location

For years, Office Dad has been bugging me to try Mamak Dang Malaysian Fusion, but it's located way out in NE. Imagine my delight when I learned that a second location  opened up by my office (aka cubicle). Office Dad is friends with quite a few restaurant owners/chefs in Calgary. He always tells them that I'm… Continue reading Mamak Dang Malaysian Fusion Cuisine Downtown Location
