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.

State & Main Kitchen & Bar – Calgary, Alberta

It was New Years Eve and we needed to eat something before heading over to friends place to ring in the new year. I didn’t know where to go, but I didn’t want to go far and a good friend told me to try State & Main in Mahogany. There we went! We were lucky as it was New Years Eve and a lot of other places were closed at this hour, so there was a continual rotation of parking opportunities. The place was busy and you can tell a lot of their customers were going to go to parties afterwards as well. It was a very festive atmosphere!

I knew the night ahead of me would have food and drinks so I didn’t require a lot. I got their Chicken Cheesesteak Sandwich and it was a very large portion and of course I got it with fries and gravy!

We also ordered their Main Burger as it seemed like something they’d be known for. More fries and more gravy! This was a delicious mess of goodness with the normal burger suspects of melted american cheese topped w/ lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle & sauce with 2 patties!

State and Main here in Mahogany was very delightful. We definitely ate more than expected as the potion sizes were larger than expected. And, with it being cold I ate everything! The prices were very reasonable, great food and excellent service. It was busy but they were mostly under control! We had an amazing time so I am sure I will return as it’s close, and awesome! I did have a site supervisor tell me he liked it here as well not too long ago. Maybe I’ll be creepy and try to bump into him one day…
