Café Mondo – Jasper, Alberta

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

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 […]

Bazille (Nordstrom) – Calgary, Alberta

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 […]

Grumans Catering & Delicatessen – Calgary, Alberta

Thursday, December 31st, 2015

We had a weekend where we wanted smoked meat sandwiches and we ventured to pretty much downtown at a place called Grumans. There wasn’t really parking outside so you do need to find street parking, which isn’t bad on weekends! Once we got parked, we waited for a bit for a table as this place […]

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

We were in the middle of moving and we decided we needed to grab something filling, quick and close as we had a few things lined up that was time sensitive. We decided we would go and try Smashburger in McKenzie Towne and it was amazing! We went at an odd time, so there was […]

Thai Pagoda – Canmore, Alberta

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

I was wanting some Thai food, as we recently had some that was quite disappointing. We found Thai Pagoda which is in Canmore on the main avenue of Bow Valley Trail and it’s not a large place and there’s parking outside. I knew I wanted their hot soup as it was a chilly day, so […]

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 […]

Great Bear Restaurant – Lake Louise, Alberta

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

This one afternoon, we ventured onto the Ski Lift for sightseeing purposes and on our way back down, we decided to stop into Great Bear which is on the upper floor of the Lake Louise Ski Resort. There’s lots of parking outside, but I can only imagine how busy they would be during prime ski […]

Pho Nam Vietnamese Cuisine – Calgary, Alberta

We were seeking for something on the lighter side for dinner when we drove by Pho Nam and it was located right off of Fairmont Drive. It is basically off the intersection of Fairmont Drive and Heritage Drive, with lots of parking. Once we sat down, we decided to have an order of their Satay […]

Madison’s Grill (Union Bank Inn) – Edmonton, Alberta

Monday, August 10th, 2015

We got up really early during one of our last trips to Edmonton and was really hungry. I didn’t want to go to a coffee shop, so we walked up and down Jasper Avenue for a while, and right when Madison’s Grill opened, we were pretty much right outside. We went in and they sat […]
