Hello Phoenix/Scottsdale Chowhounders!

A group of us will be staying at The Boulders in Carefree, Az for a week in September.

We are looking for any outstanding restaurant suggestions in the area (up to 30 mins away). We really love great food and it really doesn't matter what kind of food, it could be high-end/low end, as long as it's delicious. Any recommendations???

Also, if anyone knows of any good bars to just hang out in and have fun, I would appreciate suggestions on that side of things as well!

Best Dim Sum In SF

I'm going to revive this thread, as this was the exact same question I was going to ask. Has anything changed, what are the consensus top 2-3 Dim Sum places in SF. Location doesn't matter to me, nor does price, thank you in advance!

Croatian food/grocer

I have been looking for Chevapcici(chevapchichi) and kajmak(kaimak) in Calgary and would love to find a store that carries them.

Hi Folks,

I am renting a cottage for a month in August just east of Honey Harbour and I am looking for any and all food recommendations for the areas in the title.

I found very few threads on these areas on Chowhound, so any and all advice would be very greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance!

Cheers,

Canmore - Aromas Mexican Restaurant

I've been living in Canmroe for the past 6 months and I've been to Aromas several times. The food is excellent and the owners take great pride in what they do. I highly recommend it!

On a side note, Canmore in general has awesome food, much better than Banff imo.

how many gelaterias in Calgary?

There is a great gelato shop in Mackenzie Towne in the SE, called Uptowne Gelato.

As for how many gelaterias we have, the last Gelateria census was in 1979, so it would be difficult for us to tell you with any certainty as of today.

Best wines around town? Favorite Canadian wines?

Metrovino is my favorite wine shop in Calgary, the staff are incredibly helpful. The staff always take the time to explain the wines to you and are never snobby.
