Briggs Kitchen & Bar – Best Burger Ever

I know I say this a lot about having “The Best Burger Ever” but seriously it really was.  I had the 100% chuck burger topped with Thick Bacon, Blue Cheese and a Fried Egg on their signature egg bun.  The fries where great, but on my first bite of this fantastic burger, I forgot I even had fries.  All I could do was wrap my mouth around this magnificent sandwich while pointing at my burger to gesture how great it was to my...

Charcut Alley Burger – Should be called Heaven Burger

If heaven were in an alley this is what it would smell like. As Fuzzy and I eventually found some loading zone parking a block away, we stepped into the far end of the alley of the line up. Located at the base of Hotel Le Germain across from the Calgary Tower is Charcut, which is known for their spectacular menu, which by the way on Tuesday will be my first time dining there with Calgary’s #1 food bloggers, Calgary Foodies. Once...
