Tusks Bar and Grill

Matt and I haven’t been eating out that much lately. With how weird my appetite’s been, the hot weather and an uptick in responsibilities at home (yard work – I’m looking at you!) it really takes a special occasion to get me out of the house. One such special occasion came in the form of…

CanAsian Ice Cream by Prairie West

Hello all! Sorry, I know it’s been a while! I won’t waste precious time with you on excuses, just know that I’m refreshed and ready to get back at it! What better way to celebrate my new start than with some Canadian-made ice cream! I was so thrilled to be approached for a partnership with Prairie…

BFF Cookies

Is it killer lady entrepreneur week at Hungry in Calgary or what? I have a very important new business alert to share with you all! Meet BFF Cookies, the jumbo cookie service that takes orders throughout the week, bakes small batches over the weekend and delivers them right to your door the following Monday. When…

Cricket Powder by Gaia Protein

What do you say to someone who’s just offered to bring you a free packet of powdered crickets? This was a question I never thought I’d have to ask myself, but when the ladies from Calgary-based Gaia Protein reached out a few weeks ago to see what I thought about their product, I was immediately nervous! I’m…

Little Chief at Grey Eagle Resort

We were overdue for a double date with our friends, Zach and Nicole, and conveniently had been invited by TopDish.ca to Little Chief, a restaurant located in the Tsuut’ina Nation-operated Grey Eagle Resort & Casino. None of us had tried them before, so away we went with no expectations and big appetites. We had been given a…

Lunch Bowls at Two Penny

Have you heard about YYC Food and Drink Experience? It’s the new prix fixe festival in town, running this year from March 1 – 10 at restaurants all over the city. They have some fancy fine dining events going on in conjunction with the fest, but for the rest of us, we can enjoy set…

Hungry Abroad: San Francisco

Guys, we need to talk about San Francisco. When we made a plan with Matt’s parents to go there for a family-business-related trade show, I was prepared for the beautiful and distinctive neighbourhoods. I knew about the overcast weather. I expected paper straws and compostable cups galore (yay!). I was excited about historic points of…

Foodie Fiesta at StrEATS Braeside

What have you heard about StrEATS? I knew very little about the small franchise when I was invited to last night’s fiesta, but it turns out there’s a lot of great stuff going on over there! From tacos and burritos to their signature poutines and featured bao, StrEATS definitely seems focused on keeping things fresh! Food…

Brunch at Cleaver

As I mentioned in my post about New Year’s Eve, we were recently graced with a visit by four of our dear friends from Edmonton. This group in particular (which includes Leduc from Let’sEatYEG.com) loves trying new restaurants every time they’re in Calgary, so we were delighted to see Cleaver was open for brunch on a…

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”),…

OMO Teppan & Kitchen: Dinner for Two

Hello all! I realize it’s been some time since I last posted – quite a bit has happened! Matt and I bought a house, sold our condo, went on a whirlwind long weekend trip to NYC with a dear pal (blog posts to follow!) and then moved into the aforementioned house a couple of weeks…
