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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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 in Banff: Coyote’s Southwestern Grill

Continuing from where we left off after last weekend’s beautiful dinner at the Juniper Bistro in Banff, we woke to a pretty slow start the next morning and waited until Kirsten joined us before we went out for a little nature walk. Ernie took us to the Bow Falls Trail, which you can follow for…

Hungry in Red Deer: Westlake Grill

It was my mom’s birthday a few weeks ago (ok, almost a month ago, I’m in the weeds!) so I made a reservation at her favourite restaurant, Red Deer’s Westlake Grill at Heritage Ranch. This has obviously forever secured my place as her favourite child. Sorry, Kirsten. For the uninitiated, Heritage Ranch is an adorable…

Hungry in Camrose: Sushi Wa

Matt’s family lives in Camrose, so we go up there quite often for a visit. Camrose has almost every chain imaginable, so we lean on those heavily for brunches and dinners out, but when a new locally-owned restaurant opens up, we have to give it a try! We had an occasion to celebrate as a…

Sizzlin’ Suteki

The owners of a brand new Japanese fast food spot Sizzlin’ Suteki invited me to come check it out during their opening week. As usual, I dragged Matt out for dinner with me at an unreasonably early hour and we were able to enjoy the place to ourselves for a few minutes before the more appropriately timed…
