I’ve been meaning to get around to doing this for awhile now. I have a weekly food column in the Calgary edition of Metro News. My Lunch Rush column features my experience while dining out for lunch at different restaurant each week. Sometimes the food is great, sometimes it’s not, but such is the nature of this kind of column. Here are the places that I visited for lunch is past month…
I’ve passed by Halo many times. It has a pronounced location on Macleod Trail (very) South.
It’s one of those places that I’ve always wondered about. Well, this week, I finally bit the bullet and stopped by for lunch with a friend.
This is a perfect example of an establishment being just ‘OK’. It’s relatively nice inside, the service was prompt, although the food took a while to come out…
Inside the Kingsland Farmers’ Market on Macleod Trail lies a little exotic gem that cooks up some amazing Indonesian cuisine.
Kaffir Lime is located by the seating area of the market. There is always ample seating and if you just follow your nose, you’ll find it!
This was my first time experiencing Indonesian food. If my tastebuds could talk, they would probably describe the taste of the Black Pepper Lamb ($10.99) that I ordered for lunch as…
I try to limit my fried chicken intake to approximately one day a year. Naturally, I tend to pick a day when I really need some greasy goodness.
After a day of green beers and leprechaun hunting (also known as St. Patrick’s Day), I generally wake up the next morning feeling, well, less than 100 per cent. Olive Chicken offers a perfect cure.
Perhaps it is best described as a younger, hipper cousin of Colonel Sanders. Here, ‘K.F.C.’ stands for ‘Korean Fried Chicken’ instead of subpar fast food…
I like places that blur the lines. Inglewood’s newest café is somewhere in between a coffee shop and a lounge. The design is slick, the art is eye catching, the ceiling is high, it offers late-night hours on the weekend, and elite hipster employees man the counter. It’s a good looking place.
My lunch date and I shared a Chicken Sausage Panini ($9.75) and the feature soup, Chicken Mulligatawny ($6.50).
The Panini was good, but not great…
