New Menu Tasting at Jugo Juice

I am in a long-term relationship with Jugo Juice. JJ was there for me when I first moved out on my own to U of C from Red Deer, but as a result, most of my student line of credit was spent on Watermelon Wiggles. JJ was there for me during my first big breakup,…

New Menu Launch & Anniversary Bash at Shokunin

I was delighted to be invited by Parker PR to Shokunin’s second anniversary and new menu launch! I still hadn’t visited Shokunin despite their booming popularity and reputation as the home of Calgary’s first omakase (surprise tasting menu), so this was a perfect opportunity to try them out. We were greeted with welcome cocktails (“Naomi Rides Dragons”…

Hungry Abroad: Hvar, Croatia

So to remind you, Matt and I had so far spent our honeymoon touring Dubrovnik with a few short stops in Bosnia & Herzegovina before heading to Split. From Split, we took a ferry to the small Croatian island of Hvar. After the culture, architecture and city life we’d seen for the first week of our trip,…

One18 Empire

We had such a lovely time hosting Matt’s family over the holidays and I wanted to tell you all about the meal we had to kick it off at One18 Empire. It was our first time there and we were very hungry, so prepare for some photos! The drinks menu was our first priority – they…

Foodie Night In: Japanese Style

Hello all! I hope you’re all having a very happy new year. Matt and I are settling back into our routine now that we’ve returned to work, but I’m still withdrawing from all the incredible meals we were served over the holidays. It was just one week ago today that we enjoyed a night of…

Hungry Holidays 2017!

I hope you and your loved ones have been enjoying a very happy holiday season! Mr. Hungry and I just got home from a few days on the road for family time and are prepping for a little trip to see some friends before the new year! I wanted to touch base with you all…

Hungry Abroad: Split, Croatia

After a few days in Dubrovnik and some excellent road trips through and around Bosnia and Herzegovina, we made it to Split. I was particularly excited for Split because the old city is built into the site of the ancient Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s a cool place to see with ancient…

Foreign Concept

When Matt and I finally had a free night with no plans except filling our bellies, it was time for a long-awaited dinner at Foreign Concept! Walking in to warm smells of ginger and garlic was a welcome feeling on the cold night we chose to visit. After being seated in a cozy corner and…

Gyro at Quizno’s

I was completely overcome with emotion when Quizno’s reached out to me a few weeks ago. No, I wasn’t receiving a lifetime achievement award for the hundreds of chicken carbonara subs I’ve consumed since high school. Instead, they wanted to mail me a gift card so I could try out their limited-time-only gyro made with…

Jack Daniel’s Rye Launch Party at Sub Rosa YYC

I’m pretty sure I scored the title of Coolest Wife Ever (temporarily until my next hangry meltdown) when I dragged Matt through last night’s blizzard to the official Canadian launch of Jack Daniel’s Rye at Sub Rosa YYC, the literal underground lounge tucked underneath the Guild on Stephen Ave. The event was organized by Evangeline…

Hungry Abroad: Bosnia & Herzegovina

Bosnia and Herzegovina was never at the top of my travel list, or even on my list at all until Matt suggested a day trip away from the Dubrovnik leg of our honeymoon (full Dubrovnik post here!) to visit the Vjetrenica Cave (pronounced “vyuhtrenitsa”) in the village of Zavala. It was about an hour and half…

Pie & Prosecco at Pie Junkie Kensington

When I texted Mr. Hungry to tell him we’d been invited to an event called “Pie and Prosecco”, he immediately wrote back, “Isn’t that basically your dream event?” When I told him it was to celebrate the opening of Pie Junkie’s new Kensington location (tucked right in behind Red’s and across the street from Midtown)…
