Pure Contemporary Vietnamese – All-you-can-eat wings

In my office, I'm usually the one who organizes after work get-togethers. This time around, I picked Pure Contemporary Vietnamese for wing Wednesday. Horatio made a joke that we should call our party "West Wings". I'm not political. Left wing, right wing, I just like to wing it. For this post, let's listen to The West… Continue reading Pure Contemporary Vietnamese – All-you-can-eat wings

Las Canarias Spanish Paella and Tapas Bar

I've been meaning to try Las Canarias ever since I saw Gwendolyn Richard's Instagram post (March 15, 2017). I knew it would take 40 minutes for the paella to cook, so I called the restaurant 20 minutes before we arrived to get the dish started. For this post, let's listen to Siempre Me Quedara by Bebe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-HKvYDTpoc… Continue reading Las Canarias Spanish Paella and Tapas Bar

Silver Point Pub – Wing Night

I’ve been planning small social meet and greets at local businesses. I picked Silver Point Pub in Silver Springs because the employee on the phone was so accommodating when I called to ask about reservations. In the past summer, a volunteer brought me here so he could use the washroom and ask for a glass of… Continue reading Silver Point Pub – Wing Night

Asian Persuasion, Ay Caramba, Office Dad, Lam Jam and I had the most delicious lunch at Brasserie Kensington.

Murrieta’s West Coast Bar + Grill

My colleague Jo picked Murieta’s for her birthday lunch. For this post, let’s play something I listen to on the way to work to pump myself up for the day - Money, Money, Money by Abba. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETxmCCsMoD0 The restaurant is beautiful. The large skylight filters in ample natural light, setting off the stonewalls. There’s a… Continue reading Murrieta’s West Coast Bar + Grill

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

Klein & Harris

I recently discovered one of Calgary's secret gems - Klein & Harris on Stephen Ave. This place has it all. Excellent service, a beautiful space and elevated cuisine at incredible prices. My recent lunch with Jaime was so good that I cancelled my office lunch reservations at another downtown restaurant and booked with Klein/Harris instead.… Continue reading Klein & Harris

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
