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

I usually get the Assorted Sub ($5.50) but the Sate Chicken ($7.50) is also an excellent choice. The baggette… Continue reading Trung Nguyen – Vietnamese Subs

Redheads Cafe

Redheads is always tweaking its dishes or trying out something new. On my last visit, I learned that Sapporo is now on tap.  A new rice burger (not yet on the menu) has become my new favourite, beef and gobo. I still haven't tried the Japagetti or five-course meal set, but I'll get there eventually.… Continue reading Redheads Cafe
