I had to opportunity to try authentic Filipino food at 7 Seas in Calgary, and it was a little place - which is really easy to miss, as it's tucked away in a strip mall. However, the food is excellent, and the prices are really reasonable (with large portions). We tried a variety of dishes, from crispy Pata (deep fried pork leg) to the sinigang, and everything was cooked to perfection! The appetizer, lumpia was great too! :)
On any given day, a scoop of ice cream will boost any day to a few degrees - with the added bonus to cool me off on a hot day! One of my newly favorite flavors from Breyers is the Mint Chocolatey Chip ice cream. It has the perfect combination of both mint flavor, with a lovely crunch from the chocolate chips that is incorporated throughout throughout the ice cream. I've tried many brands of mint flavour ice cream, and I really do like Breyers! The most memorable mint ice cream that was not Breyers was a mint ice cream that was NOT green! I couldn't get pass the thought that mint wasn't green! :) It did taste good, but I'm glad Breyers made theirs green! Breyers in Canada!
I really enjoy going to The Little Cupcake Shoppe, in McKenzie Towne. I'm always greeted by friendly staff, excellent looking cupcakes, and excellent tasting cupcakes!! Recently, The Little Cupcake Shoppe put out a deal off goodnews.com for half dozen assorted mini cupcakes, where a voucher was purchased for $1, and that was donated to Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank. It really was a great deal as they stated. I haven't redeemed my pack of mini cupcakes yet, but I have purchased lots of cupcakes in the past 2 years I've known about them. Please visit a fabulous review about The Little Cupcake Shoppe! website! They also have some seasonal delights such as Christmas cupcakes too!
