#20: Catch-up: Road Trip

Sigh, as expected, I'm pretty bad at this blogging business. It's all novel and exciting at the beginning (well, maybe not novel, but exciting) but then it slowly goes downhill. Largely due to laziness and a lack of blogging mood. The blogging mood tends to come at inopportune times.


So this is going to be a long post, but I think I will stick mainly to pictures.


While in Calgary, some places I tried out:

NOtaBLE (for brunch):

Not bad, but I was not overly impressed with the taste. It felt just a little bit bland. The idea was neat (like a pancake but savoury) but I felt like they could do better... I'd have to check out dinner.

Tilted Grill:

Yay! Korean BBQ burrito, finally... (LA food truck-style). Too bad it's double the price. It was tasty, and the yam fries were an excellent complement.

Diner Deluxe:

Did I ever mention how much I love breakfast? Because I do. Chocolate french toast with bananas... full of happiness (even though it looks kind of ugly.)


Road trip!

hitch hiked down to Anaheim with my father and Jonathan. A lot of food was consumed, and a lot of sitting around happened. But, it was fun.

I will just give a small sampling...

This is out of order but I am lazy, sorry.

Anaheim Japanese place (don't know the name...):

Good-sized portion. I would seriously become obese if I lived in America. It's so much cheaper there, and such large amounts of food.

Special Thai!!!

You can see the Thai tea in the corner too. This is the pad thai. We got two other dishes for the three of us... that was a lot of food.

On the road, we went to the Brick Oven:

Honestly, the brick oven was outside; it was 99 degrees.
They had good pizza! This was chicken alfredo pizza. So tasty.

Japanese place in Salt Lake City:

Five stars for presentation... two stars for value =( that plate was $15... and not that good.


Another reason why I would be obese if I lived in America (or So Cal specifically). That bowl (it was a little more than half full I think) was less than $3.00...

Cafe in Anaheim (French-Canadian style too, hehe):

Cute crepe =) and tasty. But small.

Mm, breakfast. Particular highlights: homemade sausage which was a tiny bit sweet and very tasty, and stuffed French toast which had cream cheese and strawberry jam inside.

Cortina's: (as recommended by Alex. Actually the place above was also recommended by Alex)

Eggplant sandwich. =) I got so excited about eating it that I forgot to take a picture until later, haha. Whoops.


Anyway, a very abbreviated and hyperspeed version of some of the things I've consumed lately. I realized (as I flipped through some pictures) there are more Calgary places I visited that I haven't blogged about either. So very behind... BUT! Once school starts, I will probably visit food places less frequently. So I won't be behind!

I have yet to post about other things in life... I guess I will save that for another day.

#19: Baked goodness - Lazy Loaf & Kettle and A Ladybug Bakery and Cafe

People need to name their places with shorter names.

So, when I returned from the college training, one of the first things I did was go on an adventure. My coworker took me to Lazy Loaf & Kettle, and we consumed a slice of chocolate cake. It was quite good, but very chocolatey and rich and sweet. Kind of like God, only I don't get sick of Him... and I don't know if He is chocolatey. Anyway, the cake was nice. I think I would go back and try some of their other stuff. Sadly, it's kind of steep and my wallet has definitely been taking a toll this summer.

A later adventure took me down to the SW to finally try A Ladybug (Bakery?) and Cafe after noticing it on urbanspoon a number of times. We tried a bunch of things, all over the course of doing some paper-editing.

The flexibility of this job (definitely influenced by my colleagues) has spoiled me...

Anyway, we tried a number of things. Apparently their lemon tarts were considered one of the top 25 things to try in Calgary, or something like that. I can't remember which magazine this was from, though I'm tempted to say it was in Avenue... Regardless, tried that along with something apple (which was okay but not spectacular) and something that basically tasted like a hedgehog but lighter and less sweet. I really liked the lemon tart and the hedgehog-like one.

I think the hedgehog one (top) is kind of pretty, too.

I ordered a crepe that had chicken and mushroom (no way!) because it was supposedly their most popular. Despite the mushrooms, it was delicious. I think my taste for mushrooms is slowly growing, kind of like coconut. Strange...

It was very tasty, but quite pricey. Although it was good, it would have to be a special occasion for me to go back.

It was also early enough that a latte or two was suitable. I had chai, while my buddy had almond. Later we also tried the red tea latte, which tasted quite different but good. To be honest, I was just excited about the latte art. I like it when people make it pretty.

Almond =)

Red tea latte!

Why didn't mine have art? I don't know. I decided to make my own.

Well, I think I'll have to save Diner Deluxe for another day. Getting tired and sleep awaits. Hopefully somebody out there reading this is happy ^^.


Alright, I am back! I think. Hopefully for a while, anyway.

So I decided to revamp slightly and make a new addition to this blog. It will no longer be solely focused on food -- I will add notes about my life here and there as well. Anyway, that being said, I will catch up with most of my food adventures in the following posts. Enjoy!
on faith, food and flying
The thoughts and experiences of a college kid on faith, love and life in pursuit of Christ, the loveliest One, while enjoying misadventures and quests for food, which so happen to take her around the world.
