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…

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…

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…

Cucina & Restaurants for Change

Michelle from Wino in the West and I have been on a run lately! Tonight we had a girls dinner at Cucina in support of Restaurants for Change. This is a cool annual event where restaurants across Canada donate all of the proceeds of their dinner service (this year it’s today, October 18!) to support community…

Hungry Abroad: Dubrovnik, Croatia

I’m back! I have a few quick posts I want to get up about the food Mr. Hungry and I enjoyed on our honeymoon, then it will be back to our regular programming very soon! By the time we got to Dubrovnik, Croatia, for the first leg of our honeymoon, we’d been through a nearly…

Hungry in Love (and on a short break!)

Friends! This week has been a whirlwind – Work was busy, I checked out the Block with Parker PR, I finally started watching Shameless on Netflix, I got my first French manicure (hello food closeups!) and then Matt officially became Mr. Hungry in Calgary when we said our vows in front of 85 of our nearest…

Hungry at Home: Mini Caprese Skewers

I used to get sweaty when deciding what to bring as a side dish to a potluck – I hate to be the jerk who brings food with ingredients that mean someone at the table will have to miss out but I also don’t want to be the person who brings the second or third…

Hayden Block

We’ve been meaning to try Hayden Block for a while, so a warm Tuesday night with a protest planned at the Plaza theatre across the street seemed like a great time to rubberneck, drink whiskey and munch on some barbecue. It was crowded when we arrived at about 5:30 and the only table we could…
