Hy’s Steakhouse – Calgary, Alberta

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

It was our anniversary, so we decided to celebrate it at Hy’s Steakhouse downtown. We did street parking, but I guess there’s complimentary valet parking – that’s the sign I saw when we came out. I’m not sure how accurate it is, but it doesn’t matter. Hy’s was decorates really nicely, and with the open […]

Catch & The Oyster Bar – Calgary, Alberta

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

We met up with some friend one evening at the Catch & The Oyster Bar right on Stephens Avenue, downtown Calgary inside the Hyatt Regency Calgary Hotel. It’s a lovely place and the location is actually larger inside than it looks! Once we sat down and ordered, they gave us quite a bit of bread […]

Fairmont Palliser: Fairmont Gold Room – Calgary, Alberta

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

I’ve been really fortunate with the people I meet, the place I go, and the things that happen during all my visits anywhere. This particular visit to Fairmont Palliser in downtown Calgary was truly one of my most memorable stays ever! I got to experience their “Hotel within a Hotel” with Fairmont Gold. We got […]

Caesar’s Steak House Downtown – Calgary, Alberta

Saturday, March 14th, 2015

We have actually been here before, and it’s a place where we’d go back to – so we did! We made a reservation here for a special occasion at the Caesars Steakhouse downtown Calgary location. We lucked out with parking on the side street, but apparently there’s complimentary valet parking after 5pm. We sat down […]

We were introduced to Monplaisir which is located on the food court level of TD Square in the corner. Here, the offer delicious French Macarons and Belgium Chocolates.

Tres Carnales Taqueria – Edmonton, Alberta

Monday, December 29th, 2014

We were thinking about a quick and simple dinner when we stumbled into Tres Carnales Taqueria which we’ve heard of by Food Network’s “You Gotta Eat Here”, and like always, John Catucci’s recommendations haven’t failed us yet! We love this place! We started our meal with their Sopa de Tortilla which is a soup I […]

Saltlik – Calgary, Alberta

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

We were in downtown one evening looking for something when we decided we’ll have dinner there as well. We found ourselves walking straight into Saltlik Steakhouse where we have been here about 10 years ago and figured we would try it again. We ordered some starters, what they called Almost Famous Dry Ribs which were […]

Sutton Place Hotel – Edmonton, Alberta

Sunday, August 17th, 2014

During one of our stays in Edmonton, Alberta, we got to stay at The Sutton Place hotel in downtown Edmonton. The main entrance was a little confusing at first as it looked like it was the entrance to their restaurant – but it really was the front door. We got checked into our room and […]

Courtyard Edmonton Downtown – Edmonton, AB

Friday, June 27th, 2014

As odd as it sounds, I really enjoy going to Edmonton as a trip – not to live, but we were there this one time and stayed at Courtyard Edmonton Downtown which was at a beautiful location where you can see the river from our room. The only weird thing about this hotel was the […]

The Westin Edmonton Hotel – Edmonton, AB

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

I really enjoy over night stays during my weekend trips and this time I ended up at The Westin Edmonton which was at an ideal location in downtown. It was within walking distance to everything! The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating and the hotel was nicely renovated where the stay was really nice. We […]
