Asia Submarine – Calgary, Alberta

A coworker knew I was looking for a good banh mi sandwich and he told me to go check out this little place, and you get a delicious sandwich for about $5!! He sold me so that weekend, we went to Asia Submarine on 17th Avenue. There was a lot of parking and this deli is tucked away in the corner but near the gas station.

I of course ordered the Banh Mi sandwich, which they called Assorted Cold Cut Sandwich, which was filled of their deli meats on a nice bun. I think I would have preferred it if they toasted the buns, but as it’s a cold cut one, it didn’t actually bother me too badly.

The other sub that we ordered was their Satay Beef Sandwich, and the flavours were fragrant. There wasn’t a ton of filling in the sub, but it wa s a fair amount. On this sub, it would have been really nice to toast the bun and just to heat up the meat, but it wasn’t a huge deal. It was very satisfying and so I was excited I made the effort to come.

Overall, the place was nice! I think there is room for improvement, but seriously at $5, it was perfect! The service was fast, and friendly and the submarines were tasty! There’s not exactly anything to actually complain about! We had a fantastic time!

Analog Coffee (17th Ave SW) – Calgary, Alberta

We were looking for a nice place to sit down and do a bit of blogging. I enjoy going to Analog and it is a place that makes me happy, any of their locations. This day we went to their 17th Avenue location.

I love ordering Mocha as it’s coffee and chocolate mix. It’s always a delicious choice. The nice thing about Analog is that they always do their latte art, no matter what! I always appreciate a simple thing like that and I never mind waiting a few extra minutes for a pretty drink.

I ordered an Apple Cinnamon Scone and to be honest, it was rather dry. It tasted good, but it just wasn’t what I would expect from here.

We also ordered their Ham and Cheese Croissant as it was a bit of a lunch during this visit. This was really delicious as they heated it back up, and the croissant was light and flaky!

My other half ordered a Latte which was a smooth and creamy latte and he enjoyed it thoroughly. I enjoyed it as well, especially next to my scone!

Overall, this place is a great place to go. This isn’t our first time here and it won’t be our last. We enjoy Fratello’s coffee! There’s not always a table for you as a lot of people do sit down. We didn’t stay too long but there was a quiet period around 3PM so we stayed until the next pocket of busyness. Parking was alright for us as well since we lucked out with the timing.

Local Public Eatery – Medicine Hat, Alberta

I feel like I’ve been telling my life story lately. I’m not sorry it’s been very wordy.. as it’s been an interesting period of my life. Where I go, what I do, who I’m with has been changing and I’m reflecting. Medicine Hat is a city I spent a lot of time in as a young girl when we first came to Calgary. On this particular day I followed my grandmas sister-in-law and her daughters to Medicine Hat. We did a nice blast into the past and required lunch so we found Local Public Eatery and they had space for all 6 of us.

We ordered refreshing drinks on this super hot 30C+ day and some food. I wanted something a tad “lighter” and went for Tuna Club Sandwich, which was really amazing and large portions. I actually got scolded for not finishing my lunch! I don’t remember the last time I didn’t finish and got in trouble. Oh family!

My husband had an interesting trip on Medicine Hat journey. He knows my past but never to this extent. Things I’ve told him got verified today and we learned a lot of new things as well. But, his lunch was a giant portion of their Local Burger! Him and my second cousin devoured their entire plates! It was insane! I just didn’t want to be too full as the 3 hour trip home would make me sick if I ate it all.

On and on I talk about the trip I had so now I will go back to Local. The service was great, the bathroom doors were really heavy (I am super weak as well though…) the space was large, the food was so good! I loved our time here! We parked blocks away as we were doing other things. This place now has a place in my heart. I haven’t been back to Medicine Hat since this history lesson day but I know I will, and I will likely stop in here with some other places!
