Tokyo Eats – Sushi

Sushi in Tokyo is fantastic. I haven't done the whole Jiro Dreams of Sushi thing because I don't want to drop $600 US + for a meal for two that will last only 30 minutes.

Goro and Gun -Happy Hour

I think one of the best bloggers, vegan bakery chefs, and photographers in Calgary is Jomama, aka Jomar of @jomamaeats. I like his photography style - his photos are clean, simple and elegant. After viewing his website,  I realized how terrible my own site looks in comparison. I contacted him and asked if I could treat him to a… Continue reading Goro and Gun -Happy Hour
