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...

Dobson’s Restaurant & Bar

It’s been a long time coming but we’ve finally made it to Dobson’s.  It’s located off of McLeod Trail near Chinook Centre next to the Keg.  This review is over the course of two visits as the first time was really good and there was much more we wanted to try. I’ve always have the weakness for big honking burgers and there it was on the menu shining with a halo, the Smoke Stack Burger, weighing in at $18,...

Just Found A Hidden Gem – Patisserie du Soleil

NOtaBLE – 5th Wedding Anniversary Dinner

NOtaBLE is one of my favourite restaurants out there and same for my wife, so it was easy to choose this place for Part 1 of our anniversary dinner, on the real day we have something new booked that we haven’t tried yet.  It was 7pm on a Saturday and we didn’t have reservations.  If you want reservations, they do book half the restaurant and the other half is for walk in.  So don’t be afraid to try your luck if you...

FARM

I once saw a great food blog post from an awesome Calgary food blogger, ugonnaeatthat, she posted a grilled cheese that looked so good and was being served up by a local cheese company, Janice Beaton’s Fine Cheese.  I never got a chance to try the tasty looking sandwich and I’ve never stopped thinking about it.  So today, we got a chance to try out FARM over on 1006 17th Ave SW which Janice owns.  The story behind the...
