    Takami Sushi brings fresh flavors from Japan to Edmonton

    *Disclosure: I was invited to dine at Takami Sushi. Views expressed in this post are solely mine. I will always provide my 100% honest and transparent opinion, the complimentary dinner did not impact my feedback.

    Having to grow up and live in Vancouver, BC all my life – Japanese food has always been my number 1 go to. However, the only thing I will say that I have issues having is raw fish sushi. I know I know, being Filipino I should love eating fish – which I did at one point but now something with the taste and texture has leaned me off it. I still eat seafood like shellfish but fish is always the last option for me to eat.

    A Taste of Cauldron Ice Cream in Santa Ana, California

    From a number of times I’ve flown down to Santa Ana to visit J, not once have I noticed Cauldron Ice Cream until recently. I actually came across this ice cream place from a food Instagrammer friend, Marissa who posted this post and I was curious as to where it was!

    Turns out, it was literally a few blocks away from J’s place. And all I could think of was, How did I miss this? I could’ve come here so many times by now!

    Why Boo’s Philly Cheesesteaks In LA Will Not Disappoint You

    One day I randomly came across a joint called Boo’s Philly Cheesesteaks on social media and immediately the photos made me DROOL. I personally have never had cheesesteak before so I had to ask J if he would want to have some while we stayed a night in downtown LA.

    We originally made plans to go to the Griffith Observatory the following day so we decided to hit up the Fountain Ave location (since it was on the way)! If you’re not actively looking for the location, it can be easily missed as it looks like a normal mom and pops food spot.

    A Visit To Edmonton’s REGRUB

    It’s been a week since RE:GRUB finally opened in Edmonton! RE:GRUB has been on Calgary’s popularity list due to their beautifully crafted milkshake that is Instagram worthy!

    The menu consists of Burgers, Fries and of course, their milkshakes. All the items used in their menu are made from scratch and the ingredients are sourced locally. Buns & doughnuts are made fresh every morning, fries are hand-cut, and every day they grind their own meat for their burgers!

    Spoil Yourself With Fine Dining at Ernest’s

    *Disclosure: I was invited to dine at Ernest’s Dining Room. Views expressed in this post are solely mine. I will always provide my 100% honest and transparent opinion, the complimentary dinner did not impact my feedback.

    Since the 1960s, NAIT’s dining room has been a huge part of the Culinary Arts and Professional Food Studies. This allowed the 2nd year students to have hands-on experience in crafting delicious food and providing top quality experience. In 2005, it was renovated to provide a more modern feel while still holding on to its quality. 

    This is when the dining room was renamed to Ernest’s.

    Glenny Mcfatty: Three Amazing Dishes Using Grass Fed Tallow (Paleo)

    Tallow, or rendered animal fat, is the talk of the dinner table once again thanks to a rise in tallow products, dedicated paleo diet followers and those embracing the retro aspect of cooking. Long before commercial butter, spreads, and oil sprays there was only one option! Make your own fat out of pork, beef and even duck. The process is messy, time-consuming and not exactly pleasant but the results are worth it as food appears richer, meatier and tastier.
