Hungry Abroad: Omakase, San Francisco

Guys, amazing news. First, Matt and I have been in each other’s lives for four years now (!!) and he hasn’t even figured out that this is all a big scam and he could actually have been married to someone way nicer by now – perhaps someone who doesn’t angrily whisper at him to “hold…

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”),…

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,…

Hungry in Banff: Juniper Bistro

I’ve been itching to try Pigeonhole for a while and it’s always buzzing when I walk by, so I was excited to get a table on a busy Friday…

CRMR Four Chefs Dinner

I was definitely the wrong person to hit up when Michelle asked me to talk her out of spending $120 on a ticket to the Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts Four Chefs dinner. Things escalated quickly and we ended up getting a ticket for Matt as well! The concept is simple and fun – CRMR brings…

Improv Menu at Workshop Kitchen + Culture

We celebrated Matt’s recent birthday at one of our favourite spots, Workshop Kitchen + Culture. When we showed up last week, the room was buzzing with a pre-theatre crowd (not uncommon in a restaurant that doubles as the lobby to the Theatre Junction Grand), but we nearly had the place to ourselves once they went…
