Tasting Japan at Kinka Izakaya

If you have a hankering for some authentic tasting Japanese food or just want to, for a moment, absorb the, sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and vibrant energy of Japan then I would say Kinka Izakaya is a definite must-try.


Eating like a K-drama at Kookminhakgyo (국민학교)

Had a nice get together today with a girl friend, catching up and swapping stories. Searching up on Google, we decided to try out this quaint Korean restaurant called 국민학교 (pronounced “Kook-min-hak-gyo”). Looking at the restaurant from the outside it doesn’t look like much, however, when I stepped in I immediately felt like I was transported into a old school Korean Drama.

Bearspaw Lion’s Farmers Market

Made a special trip to Calgary this week to visit family and it has been such an amazing adventure with food and activities! Today my family here took me to a local Farmers Market just on the outskirts of Calgary called the Bearspaw Lion’s Farmers Market.
The Bearspaw Lion’s Farmers Market opens every Wednesdays from 3:30-7:30 PM and Sundays from 10 AM – 2 PM. There are lots of different vendors selling all kinds of goods from fruits and veggies, to pies, meat, clothing and accessories.

MeNami – Udon A New Way

Went out to meet my long-time friend this weekend to catch up and get together. She suggested we try out this new place called MeNami which specializes in Udon done in different ways. The outside of the restaurant looks pretty flashy with it’s Broadway-style signage, so I always thought it was some sort of flashy bar. Who would’ve thought it was an Udon House – although I was half right since they were also a sake bar with a large sake selection.

Pastel – Matcha Me Crazy

Friday night is date night! Had a little too much take out with my friend and after a couple hours of food coma we decided to end it off with some dessert at one of my favourite places to go Pastel Creperie & Dessert House. It is a small quaint place that doesn’t have a lot of seating capacity, but definitely worth to stop by a pick up a quick crepe. This is one of my favourite local spots to go for desserts and lattes – although I don’t really drink coffee I do love their green tea latte ❤ !
