Billoos Indian Cuisine

A common nickname and term of endearment in India – Billoos is fitting for this friendly, family run business in NW Calgary.  I needed a fix of Chole Bhature – a great (non-spicy) vegetarian dish paired with two large puffed fried bread (bhature). We also ordered butter paneer (cottage cheese cubes in a creamy curry)…

Hunterhorn Plaza – Pho Thanh Vietnamese

This place is ALWAYS busy. Possibly one of the most affordable Vietnamese restaurants in the city so be prepared to use credit or cash. No frills esthetic, but perfect for large portion take out noodles and spring rolls had a perfect crunch. Next time I will have to try the Pho!

Hunterhorn Plaza – Sushi Kimu

Small group seating and big on freshness. Sushi Kimu also offers “jumbo” sized rolls of your favourites. Tucked away in Hunterhorn Plaza – this restaurant is great for date nights and offers a menu with interesting rolls.

Kiwa – Korean

The spicy seafood stew was full of flavour and even included some squid!

Brixton Pub – Comfort Foodie

Have I mentioned that I love the Brixton? This neighbourhood pub is fairly new, but serves up a fresh take on neighbourhood pub drinks & eats. My personal favourite: the blackened chicken fettuccine. In this case they were out of fettuccine, and substituted with linguine which was equally good (if not better). Great atmosphere, people…

4th Spot – Good Beer, Family Oriented, Brunch, All in One.

I love this place, the menu is always kept interesting and it is a very diverse but laid back crowd. We ventured here on a weekend, so I decided to try a new menu item for brunch. Warning – never eat out when HANGRY as you make terrible decisions like ordering the Fried Chicken &…

Saigon Star Vietnamese

We stopped here at random,  attracted by the big beckoning sign (yes, that worked) and in hopes of supporting a new business vs. defaulting to the Wendy’s next door.  On the inside, this did not appear to be a new restaurant, the seats & booths worn, uncomfortable and not particularly clean, server wasn’t friendly, and…

Late Night Bubbletea Run

With guests visiting, we thought we would treat them to some late night dessert. This bubble tea location was packed (mid-week) right before closing. So much so, they were no longer seating (not the friendliest service).  With fresh fruit, smoothies, slushies, milk teas, and an array of bubbly/jelly options, everyone got to customize their drink….

Juree’s Thai – NW

My boss actually was the one to recommend this restaurant – Popular for both take out and dine in, this is a unique restaurant with thai decor (from the window shutters to the plateware) – making for a fun escape within the city. Staff were incredibly friendly. The red curry dish with beef is one of my…

Joey Tomato’s – Crowfoot

I honestly prefer Joey Tomato’s to Earls, their menu (to me anyways) is more exciting. Today the theme was tuna! We ordered the tuna tacos, and a tuna sandwich. The tuna in the tacos was a nice rare (sashimi-like) consistency, with crunchy warm fried tacos and black sesame seasoning and was made even better as…
