到卡加利美食節逛一圈,吃遍各國美食 (Taste of Calgary)

天氣變涼了,短短的夏季也結束了… 唉,無情的夏天,說走就走,留下我獨自面對漫長又寒冷的冬天 (哭~~~)

不管再怎麼難過,也要面對現實。樂觀地想,又有多少人能夠在 -30ºC 的冰天雪地中,度過聖誕節呢? 哈哈哈 (苦笑)!  好,今年冬天,我會補上照片讓大家感受感受加拿大酷寒的威力!

之前,跟大家介紹過幾個卡加利必玩的夏日活動 (還記得牛仔節太陽與莎莎醬節嗎?) 想到夏天,還有一個活動是美食愛好者一定不能錯過的,那就是卡加利美食節 (Taste of Calgary)!!!

Eat Like a Local in Vegas (Off the Strip Asian Restaurants)

Having traveled to so many places in my life, I’ve learned that the best restaurants are sometimes hidden in local neighborhoods. Personally, I like spending a day or two outside the downtown area . Just to get away from the touristy area and see what the city has to offer. By taking the buses, walking in the local neighborhoods and interacting with the locals, you get to see a different side of the city. Exploring like a local really makes your experience unique and memorable. Also, it may save you some money 😛

In Vegas, Kev and I visited a few local restaurants. Here are some Asian places we went. Maybe on your next trip to Vegas, you might consider paying a visit! Click to read more!

Calgary Restaurant: Izumi Sushi Yokozuna

One of the most inconvenient things in Calgary is trying to find a restaurant on a holiday. We stumbled upon Izumi Sushi, a Japanese restaurant on Macleod Trail, when a group of us attempted to feed our hunger on a long weekend holiday back in February. We were almost drowning in tears when we finally found a place that was open.

Calgary Restaurant: Red’s diner (4th street)


IMAG1517

Red’s diner is a very popular breakfast and brunch restaurant in my neighborhood. If you go on a weekend, expect to wait in line before being seated. Kev and I went there purposely past the lunch hour on a Sunday, hoping that we could beat the crowd. Unfortunately, we had to wait a little bit for a table so we compromised and sat at the counter.

Burger Fever in Sin City (Las Vegas South Strip restaurants)

Happy Friday everyone! Any burger lover out there? Kev and I had a burger fever on our Las Vegas trip last Christmas. Just thought I would share with you our eatery adventure in celebration of all the hard work you put in for the week. This is my first time joining the Fiesta Friday community. Thanks Angie and The Novice Gardener for putting together this weekly Friday party. Hope you all have an awesome weekend!

Max Brenner Chocolate by the Bald Man@ Caesar Palace

Max Brenner is my all time favorite. I first knew about it when I was in NYC. From then on, I am addicted to it. When I went back to Asia, I was delighted to find their Singapore branch to continue feeding my Max Brenner addiction. When I found out there’s also a branch in Las Vegas, I was overjoyed! XD Too bad this branch is now permanently closed, but we could still satiate our hunger through photos 😛

The restaurant was conveniently located inside the Forum Shops at Caesar Palace.

Calgary Restaurant: Blue Star Diner

Our friend tried to bring us to here once on a weekend, but found out that it was at least a 40-min wait when we arrived. Not quite in the mood to wait that long, we gave up and went to another place to eat instead. One day, Kev had a day off on a weekday so we decided to take a trip to bridgeland and give this place another try. Lucky us- no wait at 11 am! images

Restaurants Hopping in Sin City (Las Vegas South Strip)

In my last LV post, I shared with you our dining adventures to the North Strip restaurants. Today, let’s take a look at what’s worth visiting (and what’s not) on the South Strip!

Hash House A Go Go @ The Quad

Located on the second floor of The Quad hotel, Hash House A Go Go is a 24-hour diner-like restaurant. Walking down the aisle towards the restaurant, you can see celebrities’ autographs, awards and magazine articles it was featured in on the wall. We found out that it was featured on various TV shows, including “Man Vs. Food,” “Martha Stewart Show,” and “Rachel Ray’s Vacation,”  and is known for serving twisted farm food in oversized portions.  This place is quite famous indeed!
