Chong Fat – Calgary, Alberta

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

We’ve been going to this little noodle place for years, and I’ve actually never knew the name of Chong Fat as we had a nickname for them… which directly translates to “big bowl of noodles”. But, because this place is usually opened only during lunch hours, I’ve been having a harder time to get to, […]

Peking Ginger Restaurant – Canmore, Alberta

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

We were having family in Canmore for a family function, so we decided to scope out some Chinese restaurants to make sure they’re worthy of bringing family there. One of our stops was the Peking Ginger right on Bow Valley Trail. Parking wasn’t too bad as it there was a little parking lot in front […]

We weren’t sure what we wanted to eat one evening, and we stumbled to the Southwest Calgary and found Signature Palace Restaurant which is in a strip plaza.

Peace River Garden Restaurant – Peace River, AB

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Another long trip means we were craving food at odd times. This time was around 4pm when we made it into Peace River and basically the only thing opened was Peace River Garden Restaurant which dishes out Chinese/Western food. I felt like something light and soupy yet filling so I decided to order Wor Wonton […]

Cochrane Palace Restaurant – Cochrane, Alberta

Sunday, July 27th, 2014

There’s something satisfying about small time Chinese/Western buffets which I know it as smorgs as we use to have a family restaurant in Medicine Hat. Now, as it’s not available to me, I find myself craving it, so we’re been driving around Alberta small towns looking for smorgs where we found one in Cochrane called […]

While I was making some dumplings at home, I really wanted to eat some Chinese food for lunch. We did some searching and found Shanghai Classic Restaurant which we were confused as it’s name says it’s both Shanghai and Peking style Chinese food. It didn’t matter though, we still went in for food! We went […]
