Calgary Restaurant: Burger 320

This is the first year Kev and I attended Beakerhead, a week-long city-wide festival that celebrates engineered art. It did not only engage ingenious engineers, artists and scientists to showcase their talent and creativity, but also brought a whole new experimental dining experience to Calgarians. This year, creative chefs were called upon to explore a specific theme – eggs!

Looking through the list of participating restaurants in Engineered Eats, I recognized a burger place that we hadn’t explored yet – Burger 320. On top of that, it invented an intriguing, egg-citing dessert that made me curious to know how it tasted!

Calgary Restaurant: Goro + Gun

Just returning from Taiwan where top-notch Japanese noodle houses are overly abundant, I currently have very low desire to try ramen in the western land. Especially after having tried most of the Japanese ramen restaurants in Calgary (including Muku, Shiki Menya, Shijiki) and discovered none of them were up to the standard, I have lost confidence in finding one that is truly authentic.  Click to read more!
