IKEA Restaurant – Calgary, Alberta

This morning, we went to IKEA, we needed to pick some stuff up from IKEA, and made a morning out of it! 🙂 Of course, we started by arriving 10ish, just in time for breakfast!! Breakfast at IKEA has always been affordable, and it’s not bad for what you’re getting, and the amount you’re receiving!

We of course have the $1 breakfast meal, and add things to it!! The breakfast includes Scrambled eggs, sausages, and home fries. The eggs are always a little funny, but it’s pretty good with the remedy for all weird food — ketchup! I must say, I really enjoy the home fries (potato chucks), and for me, instead of ketchup, I like the maple syrup that goes with pancakes! I know, it’s sounds funny… but, my husband likes it with Ranch dressing… so, you decide who is weirder!

Today, my addition thing that I had with my $1 breakfast was Organic crepes stuffed with spinach and cheese. It looked a little funny, but it tasted good. My husband had Bacon and French Toast.

The French toast was interesting… it was dense, but it made up for it as it was a Cinnamon Toast! 🙂 If you’re going for Breakfast, be sure to be there before 11AM!

Tang Toasted Subs & Grill – Calgary, Alberta

This morning, I woke up really wanting a good Vietnamese submarine. I didn’t want to go all the way to my favorite place in Chinatown, so I decided to give Tang Toasted Subs & Grill a try.

It wasn’t as I hoped for… as my expectations were really high — however, the sub was flavorful with it’s sauce from the chicken. I had the Satay Chicken, and my husband had the Mega Sub (Sate Chicken and Beef). I think the actual sub bun wasn’t as fresh or something. Usually when you toast bread, it’s got a distinctive taste and smell, which these subs seems to be lacking. The carrots weren’t actually pickled, or it was just really lightly done… or the carrot sticks were too large. You couldn’t taste the “pickled” part of it, which usually adds to the taste of a Vietnamese Sub.

We did see a lot of their customers eating the rice bowls, which really was just vermicelli bowls, and they looked like they were enjoying themselves! I guess if I was in that area, I would go in to give it a try too! 🙂

Regardless, it’s a great place for a quick cure! And, a place I will return to try other selections which I didn’t get to this time.

We were going to get drinks, as both of us love bubble tea — however, they do not use fresh fruits, as you can see the powders they use. Neither of us are fans of powder bubble tea, so we opted out this time. They called these drinks smoothies at Tang.

Serendipity 3 – Las Vegas, Nevada

The Serendipity 3 is located outside of the Caesars Palace, and it’s a wonderful place for lunch, or a snack… even a dinner! We went there for a late breakfast, early lunch – and it’s really a neat location.

You have the option to sit inside or outside, but unfortunately, when we asked for an outside table, they just ran out. Serendipity 3 becomes packed with hungry guests really quickly.

They serve everything from frozen hot chocolates, to sandwiches, and even hearty meat dishes – which allows them to serve all sorts of appetites and all different times of day!

I ordered the “High Heel Pump” with sweet potato fries and it was really tasty of a Sandwich. It tasted really light, and the portion size was enormous! I think it could have had more Prosciutto as I barely tasted it. It felt like it was overwhelmed with extra virgin olive oil and the tomatoes and cheese.

We also had the Skirt Steak with Steak Fries, and that was cooked to perfection! It was one of our more memorable dishes we had during our trip for lunch.

We realize that Serendipity 3 is known for it’s frozen hot chocolates, however, we weren’t in the mood for one that afternoon. We’ll be sure to try it out next time!
