We saw a great deal to stay in Jasper, so we didn’t pass it down. In the morning, we wanted a quick brunch which meant it wasn’t too busy. We walked right into Cafe Mondo and it is right on Patricia Street with street parking nearby. My husband loves soup and we went for a […]

Saturday, January 30th, 2016

I was doing some shopping one afternoon at Chinook Centre when I felt like stopping for a snack. I happened to be going towards Norstrom, so I went into their restaurant upstairs called Bazille It wasn’t a big place, but it wasn’t too busy when we went, so it worked out well for us. The […]

3Q Teahouse – Calgary, Alberta

Saturday, January 30th, 2016

We decided to grab a snack/light dinner one evening and saw a new place called 3Q Teahouse which was recommended by some friends. They told us the owner was actually Taiwanese, so the drinks should be good. There was parking available as the time frame when we went, all the other businesses were closed, or […]

G-men Nan Chu – Richmond, British Columbia

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

I’m actually very confused about the name of this restaurant, but the name on the recipet says the restaurant is called Ramen Bar at NanChuu Japanese Izakaya, however it seems to be called G-men and you don’t see that name as the “dominate” name. We were brought here by my sister-in-law and her husband, and […]

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

We felt like a patio this one afternoon, and found ourselves going to Toad n Turtle on 130th Avenue SE, and there, we got seated on the “side patio” instead of their roof top patio as apparently it was closed. There’s tons of parking especially after hour when the home construction store is closed. We […]

Barbs Fish and Chips – Victoria, British Columbia

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

While we were in Victoria, we decided to go find their wharf as often on weekends, I tell my husband “I want to go to the wharf to eat”, but sadly there’s none in Calgary. I liked out here when I said that as we found ourselves at their wharf with floating restaurants and we […]

Afternoon Tea: The Fairmont Empress Hotel – Victoria, British Columbia

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

We’ve been talking about having afternoon tea at all the Fairmont Hotels and when we got to stay at the Fairmont Empress in Victoria, we tried to join them for afternoon tea without a reservation as we had no idea what time the ferry would bring us in at. We were really luck and got […]

Hilltop Diner – Langley, British Columbia

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

On our drive to Vancouver, we’ve heard amazing stories and reviews about Hilltop Diner and also watched Food Networks You Gotta Eat Here come by this location – so we HAD to make a stop and visit this lovely establishment! Once we got a seat after a long wait as they’re very popular (and well […]
