After my previous pork-filled trip to 33 Acres, I had to come back to try their weekend-only brunch waffles. Continue reading Fluffy Waffles at 33 Acres Brewing
I love going to farmers markets when cash isn’t too tight. I went to the Trout Lake Farmers Market last week and stumbled across a little bag of morel mushrooms for $12. $12?! Is it worth it? I found out later, but first the rest of the story… Continue reading What Does $12 of Morel Mushrooms Taste Like? Trout Lake Farmers Market
Glad to see Hawkers Market back for another year of food, music and fun! (Previous posts here and here.) If you’ve never heard of Hawkers Market, it’s basically a warehouse party/rave mashed up with a farmers market/street food festival.
Lotta photos and less words in this time 😀 Continue reading Cookie & Milk Shot Plus More at Hawkers Market – May 10 2014
I love the accomplished Thai cooking in a casual atmosphere that Longtail Kitchen excels at. We went for a late lunch/early dinner on a Sunday afternoon. Since we got there around 3:00pm, we thought why not try their Chef’s Menu?

We’ve been meaning to get back to Burdock & Co. for dinner after having a great brunch a while back. One thing that kicked our asses into gear was reading that Burdock won the Silver Award for Vancouver Magazine’s Best New Restaurant, so we thought that we’d better get in there before it’s slammed! (Farmer’s Apprentice won Gold, so uhhh, good luck getting in!) Continue reading You’re Such A Tease!! Dinner at Burdock & Co.

The Rio Theatre on Broadway near Commercial held a Portlandia marathon called Portlandiapalooza, featuring “artisan grilled cheese” and special Portland beers. I had a super-fun time and could’ve stayed a lot longer than I did. Continue reading Portlandiapalooza at Rio Theatre: Artisan Grilled Cheese & Portland Beers
More food adventures in Calgary! Let’s hop to it! Continue reading It’s Not Just Food, It’s Family! Calgary – July 2013
This was our third wonderful trip to Portland. “Beervana” indeed. Another case of waaaaay too much to do and not enough time. In fact, I got a bit overloaded towards the end. Too much of a good thing is a good problem to have…?
This is another post dug out of my personal Facebook account — too good to be left in the walled garden! AFAIK, all the places I visited are still open, so all this info still applies today if you thinking of planning a trip. The one exception is Amnesia Brewing, whose brewpub location got sold and the brewery moved to Washington State (more details here).
