Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m a big eater. I eat so much that Kev once asked me “how can you devour a bowl of noodles at 11pm when we just finished dinner 2 hours ago?” The fact is that I can only eat non-stop throughout the day if food is prepared in small amount. That’s why I could never get the most value out of all-you-can-eat type of meal when there is a certain time frame. Click to read more!
Over the Heritage Day long weekend, a few friends came down to visit from Edmonton. For a large party of 7, we thought going to a smokehouse might be a good idea. A large meat platter could easily feed all of us. No need to fuss over individual orders. Big T’s BBQ had a stall at the Calgary Farmer’s Market where a few of our friends were dazzled by the toothsome barbecued meat. This brought us to their brick and mortar establishment in Deer Ridge, Calgary.

If you’re a meat lover, you must put Charcut on the top of your must-dine list. This bustling, urban rustic restaurant, located in the heart of downtown, showcased the freshest and highest quality house butchered meat dishes. The only thing I regret is not having had dinner at this place much earlier! Click to read more!
If you’re looking to spicing up your summer, you should consider giving African cuisine a try. Last summer, Kev and I made our first attempt at Safari Grill and we loved how flavorful the dishes were. This year, our friend, Moe, brought us to another restaurant that serves a great variety of food from Eastern Africa with a fusion of East Indian. More importantly, everything is halal!
Serving the best BBQ in Seattle, Bitterroot is a hot spot for BBQ connoisseurs and barhoppers. At dinner time, it is almost impossible to secure a table without any waiting. Even though we were told to expect a 40-mins wait time, we decided to give it a try. At the end, we managed to get in within 10 mins! Click to read more!
