Hungry Holidays 2018!

Happy holidays, friends! I’ve been battling a serious situation where all my clothes have been mysteriously shrinking over the past week, but don’t worry – I’m not letting it get my spirits down and I’m still indulging my way into 2019. Your girl is writing this post surrounded by empty Purdy’s and Lindor wrappers from…

Hungry in Edmonton: RGE RD

My Edmonton-based pal, Jamie, turned 30 this weekend! We were planning a trip to Edmonton this weekend anyways, so dinner plans shaped themselves up marvelously with Jamie, Alyssa, Jenn and Leduc, who you may know from his food blog, Let’s Eat YEG. Alyssa used to work at one of Edmonton’s top eateries, RGE RD (pronounced “range road”),…

Chianti Cafe on 32 Ave NE

I was so excited the other week when I was invited by Chianti Cafe Calgary NE (aka Chianti’s to those who use the hip lingo) to come in for a complimentary meal. In addition to any potential and inadvertent influence that might occur from the planned nature of my recent meal there, I should also let…

Happy Birthday, MR.SUB!

MR.SUB recently announced a startling fact – 2018 marks the company’s 50th anniversary! They opened their first store in 1968 – the year Pierre Trudeau was first elected, the Rolling Stones released “Jumping Jack Flash” and my sweet baby parents were still in elementary school with no idea that their daughter would one day be…

OMO Teppan & Kitchen Launch Party

It was such an honour to be invited by Parker PR to tonight’s opening ceremonies and launch party at OMO Teppan & Kitchen. My dear friend Kim and I swung by the event to get a sense of what OMO is all about while trying a variety of their delicious offerings from cocktails and sushi…

Cleaver

We were so excited last weekend when stars and schedules aligned to allow us a dinner out with our busy friends, John, Carleigh, David and Jessi! This is an adventurous group who loves to eat well and David in particular is known for being a big time burger fan, so Cleaver came to mind right…

Prairie Caesars with Walter Craft Caesar Mix

I love a good Caesar – any drink that comes with a snack obviously gets the thumbs up from me. My fellow Caesar fans will already know that they were reportedly invented in Calgary and typically include vodka, clam/tomato juice (~clamato if you’re fancy~), Worcestershire, hot sauce and a celery garnish. A Canadian classic, it’s…

Big Taste 2018: Provision

On Thursday, Matt and I were so excited to finally check out Provision as they are participating in Big Taste 2018! (Click here to read about my Big Taste lunch at Market last weekend!) Provision is located inside that cute little train car-sized structure in Central Memorial Park. The interior feels a lot like a…

Big Taste 2018: Market

It’s time again for one of my favourite foodie events – Big Taste! Every year, restaurants throughout the city offer fixed price lunches and dinners to give diners a chance to explore some of their most popular menu items at a great value – $18 or $28 lunches, $28 or $40 dinners and the $65…

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…

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)…

Happy Birthday, Mill St. Calgary Brewpub!

I was so excited when Mill St. Brewery invited Matt and I to come over for some drinks and snacks tonight to celebrate their first birthday at the Calgary Brewpub location on 17th Ave. We wandered over after work to check out what was on offer. The place was packed already by about 6 p.m. despite…
