Interested in people's opinions?
And any info on the buffet? Today is Thursday and it got me thinking.. How much is the Thursday buffet? I know their dinner menu is usually $40 or so.

Have you tried Midori lately? (Cgy)

Right Sorry.
Been to the Sukiyaki downtown... Just having a brain freeze

I haven't been to Midori in a while but now I need to go back.
Actually haven't even tried the new Sukiyaki House since they opened in the Kyoto 17 space. Walked by a while ago and it looked very empty...

Question on the Highwood Thursday Buffet...
How much is it? I know their dinner is around $40.
Just curious about their lunch buffet. Anyone else been there?
Thanks

Southern Style Fried Chicken in Calgary

The International Hotel has a southern fried chicken that is surprisingly good.
Their restaurant is not the greatest but they make some pretty good food. A bit if a hidden gem.

Grocery prices in cowtown

I agree with ChrisA. The Signal Hill Superstore we have gone to has usually had much better produce than the Midtown or the Safeway. I think they turn over a ton of food so its usally quite fresh.
And usually their prices are far better.

Long shot but where to eat in Yellowknife???

I have spent a lot of time in YK and I have to say the food quality can be suspect, the service most places is really not good, and I am glad you aren't too worried about price.

Sazio - Calgary

Has anyone been to Sazio in downtown Calgary?
I am going next week and wanted to get some idea what I was in for.

Thoughts? Recommendations?
Thanks

Stromboli or Calzone in CGY

For me a Stromboli is just as you described JM. I would use the Jelly Roll analogy. Some think its just a big calzone cut into slices. Either way, I would be happy. I gotta get me some Stromboli or Calzone. I don't know why but its just a little different from a pizza...
I might have to check the Calzone at the Co-op.
(Thanks for the suggestions so far.. Willowpark is a bit out of the way but if I can't get my fix closer, I will make my way down there!)

Stromboli or Calzone in CGY

I need a Stromboli or will settle for a Calzone and I want to know, where are the spots in Calgary to try?

Schaumburg - near Woodfield Mall

I now have to go to Giordano's. The stuffed pizzas look like a requirement.

Currently - best steakhouse/prime rib in Calgary?

The Bears Den was really good when I went there. I would say you for sure should give it a try.

Kitchen gadgets in Calgary

Cookbook Co. on 11th Ave SW has a crazy amount of things.
Another place with less gadgets but some interesting stuff is Lina's on Centre St. Plus you can always take a break and have a cannoli and an espresso!

Calgary High-End Prices

Another reason for the price hikes is so many people downtown eat lunch on the company expense account. When you go into some places you can tell these people aren't paying for their own meal.

Schaumburg - near Woodfield Mall

I am going to be in Schaumburg this fall for a conference and I was hoping to be able to experience some real Chicago (Bears game, Hawks game, some local great food)
Looks like timing is going to keep me pretty close to the conference and the hotel in Schaumburg. I really want to try to get as much of the real Chicago feeling as possible, so if you have any places that would be close to try some Chicago area specialties (like the Italian Beef I have read much about) please let me know. Cheers
