This is Great information Miss. Needle.

I agree Maui is amazingly expensive. We did read your previous post, and we will take some of your suggestions for sure.

by the way what was in the bread basket at Spago that you liked so much? did you have dessert?

ONO gelato- Hana highway Maui

Thanks soo much miss needle. this really helps, as I think we might opt out of visiting. We're sort of Gelato snobs, having tasted the real thing in Italy (I',m sure being in New York also give you a pretty decent authenticity of taste).
If I were to ask you your top 5 places to visit, to eat in Maui , (either 'cheap' or expensive) in Maui, what would you say? Also, is there such a thing as 'real' authentic luau food any more? last time we visited Maui, the luau food was average at best. We really want some good poi, (we've heard a tru luau is nothing without he'e (sorry about the spelling). which is basically octupus in coconut milk.....any thoughts?

Meaning...if we are not in the area, it's nothing to talk about?
Do you live in Maui... you have great information!!
Did they have a variety of interesting flavours at least (exotic tropical fruits), or just the standard ones?

I hope it's not too expensive, as it is by the Ritz

best "take away" in Calgary

Ok thanks guys. I've narrowed the search down after speaking with my friends.
Doesn't Main Dish offer more 'deli' selections for a high price?
Thai sounds great. What else does Ruan Thai have? Vegetarian?
John- Kensington is not off limits (what are your thoughts on the selection at Main dish?)

Maplesugar- great suggestions, I agree Lina's has a nice antipasti selection. Have you ever tried (don't know the name) it's anchovies and sun dried tomatoes, and red pepper flakes, that you can spread along on bread or on pizza? fabulous

best "take away" in Calgary

My friend and I want to order take out. something different, tasty, reasonably priced and not in the N.W or fast food.
It's our girls get together, so we were thinking of even ordering a whole bunch of 'small bites' to pair with our wine. Any suggestions?

Raw/Vegan eats in Cgy?

Any good ideas? I know about good Vegeterian haunts but what about Vegan or even Raw food?

CrossIron Mills, Balzac

Thank you for clarifying.

Buttercream is a franchise....meh..

Nectar Desserts in Calgary

Their dessert is really not all it's cracked up to be. I agree with the 'bland' comment. Custards and creams are a bit pet peeve of mine...you need to use quality ingredients, sometimes I find there desserts to be watery. Too bad, it's a beautiful concept..

Manuel Latruwe in Calgary - What should I get?

Manuel Latruwe in the old days used to be an amazing treat. A litlte out of the way for those who live in the SW but brought back memories of France immediately. It seems all of those renovation costs are being passed on to the customers. Still though, the mille feuilles are really nice, and of course pain au chocolat are comparable to Paris!

Chappys Calgary

Anyone ever visited this French restaurant in the S.E? How was it?

Sparkling wine/ Champagne stores in Edmonton

Any suggestions?

Where to find 'fresh yeast'

Fresh truffles?

Does anyone know where to source fresh truffles in Calgary?
