Vernors Ginger Ale YYC

I used to buy some in Great Falls when we would cross the border but can't find it anywhere these days. Throw in some Better Made chips and a Detroit Coney and there might be a road trip in my future.

Calgary - what happened to the little Vietnamese restaurant next to the Uptown Theater on 8th Av downtown?

Now it's back to Thi Thi which is just not the same as the Chinatown location and when it's not busy the chick pea.

New Pizza Place Coming to NW Calgary/Royal Oak

we also went last night. 4 of us. There were only a few people in the dining room but the lounge area was busy. We had to ask for a drink refill 3 times the servers were all sitting at a table behind us yapping and gabbing. We all ordered individual pizza's. All from the red sauce menu. Red sauce is more stewed tomatoes from a can. Meaty, Beasty, Big & Bouncy, Crazy Train, Classic Rock and Flirtin’ With Disaster lets just say we won't be back soon. Calgary lacks outstanding pizza. I had high hopes. Nobody even ate the leftovers today.

Chocolate spread in Calgary

on the store in Edmonton has stock for the Dulce de Leche. I haven't yet opened the Eagle Brand yet... and I think I will just get my crock pot out and make the crockpot recipe on the weekend. It's very easy, just buying it from a jar is that much easier.

Chocolate spread in Calgary

I ended up at Superstore tonight the Country Hills location... none on the shelf, even the shelf tag is gone. I have to pop into London Drugs in the next 48 hours, I will look there. As mentioned they have an interesting selection of food items.

White Castle Cheeseburgers in Calgary?

Your killing me...Know anyone that works at the airport? You can bring food onto the plane I have brought back Cinnabon from the US multiple times. If you could find someone going they could pick up cases of the burgers and put them directly on the plane with them. You might be able to find a store manager to take them to the airport for some extra cash.

I just want Chicken rings..right now and jalapeno cheeseburger to go.

White Castle Cheeseburgers in Calgary?

You can only buy the frozen ones in the USA we got them in ... the closet location is around South Dakota. My son wanted White Castle for his birthday and we were adventurous. Closest real White Castle is in Minneapolis. Although on the FAQS is does say you can buy them at the Walmart supercentres/IGA/Associated foods in Montana. I would just give them a call.

Chocolate spread in Calgary

I just bought some of the PC version about 3 weeks ago at the Country Hills location. I hope they haven't discontinued it again... the Dulce de Leche...so yummy.

Thai Bistro - new second location

1448 17th Ave SW calgary

This location has been several restaurants in the past including an old favourite Peking Garden.

We tried the new location because my husband and I knew the owner has been working hard on the second location with new staff etc.

On a Sunday evening around 8 we were pleasantly welcome to the new location, with lots of parking in the back.

We ordered our usual, fresh shrimp spring rolls which are packed with flavour and always super fresh. They are my favourite in Calgary hands down. Our son was with us so we got the standard Pad Thai spiced up to a 3 and 2 curries red and paneang one with seafood the other chicken. Food always comes quickly and no shortage of service. The owner is always refilling and making sure the food is what you want, quick to help with choices. We have never had a bad meal. I love the second location on 17th. I hope business goes up for him. He is not over priced and the food is decent! If something is not on the menu ask him! Food is always hot and fresh, with good portion sizes.

omg the brisket at lunch is my favourite there isn't anything I am not a fan of to be honest. The burger of the month is always good, the prime rib is good, the lamb is lovely. The tenderloin is fantastic.

Village Ice-Cream

Went to Village Ice Cream tonight, yesterday was the big opening.

Outstanding product. They have a handful of fantastic flavours. I know they had Vanilla Bean, Cardamom, Salted Caramel, maple, huckleberry, coffee, guide mint, toasted coconut, chocolate/chilli/cinnamon

They had a few Sorbet which are dairy free, I know one of the flavours was cranberry/ginger.

You are more than welcome to sample, they have small containers to sell. Some of the seasonal stuff is just for scoops. They do have home made waffle cones.

We had the salted caramel, cardamom, chocolate/chlli/cinnamon. Really outstanding.

Dairy Free, Gluten Free organic when available.

NOtaBLE uses their ice cream for sure, as I read it on the menu last week and I was told a few other restaurants.

Billy is the owner and ice cream mixmaster.

2012 Calgary food trucks.

Ran into Blam!wich at the Parkdale market had the (Bat out of Hell) on a bun with cheese and tomato? topping. It came with great disappointment. Cold tasteless meatloaf with semi-melted cheese some it looked stewed canned tomatoes with spice on top...all served on a 50 cent hotdog bun. Ohhh and don't forget the cat fur. My shopping partner had the Slow boat to China ..chicken with some chinese spices on the same crappy hotdog bun. So salty you could barely eat it. It looked the the chicken breast you get at walmat. ugh. Never again.

Nathans hot dogs at Safeway...what varieties (Calgary)

dingdingding. Nonlinear your so right we bought some last night Nathans Hot Dogs, they weren't very good and so salty we couldn't even eat them. I love Hebrew National they are awesome hot dog. My understanding is you can't get Hebrew National anywhere in Canada anymore. I miss being in the US sometimes.
