Japan in Photos – Tsukiji Fish Market & Hamarikyu Gardens

Japan in Photos – Tsukiji Fish Market & Hamarikyu Gardens

I got back from Japan two days ago, and am still living in a bubble of disbelief. Japan is by far one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever travelled to, with temples, shrines, greenery, and modern landscapes all within a tightly enclosed city.  Continue reading “Japan in Photos – Tsukiji Fish Market & Hamarikyu Gardens”

YYC’s Best Steamed Dumplings: Dumpling Lab Restaurant Review

YYC’s Best Steamed Dumplings: Dumpling Lab Restaurant Review

Dumplings are the bomb and no one can tell me otherwise. They’re the perfect snack, breakfast, lunch, or dinner – basically, dumplings can be anything you want because they’re so good, and YYC’s new Dumpling Lab is proving it.  Continue reading “YYC’s Best Steamed Dumplings: Dumpling Lab Restaurant Review”

Calgary BibimBap Champion: Bowls, Korean YYC Restaurant Review

Calgary BibimBap Champion: Bowls, Korean YYC Restaurant Review

It’s been over a week since my last blog post, which is the first time I’ve gone off schedule for Fung Shui. Over the past week, I realized that with my spring class schedule, return to work, and overall need for some kind of relaxation, I’m going to need to cut down a bit with my posting. So, instead of twice a week, I’ll be posting once a week on Sundays from now on. Hopefully I’ll be able to make better posts once a week, and see where this goes from here!

Calgary Date Night: Po-Ke Bowl Review & Bow River Walk

Calgary Date Night: Po-Ke Bowl Review & Bow River Walk

Setting foot in the foodie realm of Instagram is bound to leave you hungry, desperate, and volatile. Nearly every day, I see these pictures of beautiful Poke bowls from Calgary’s Po-Ke location waiting for me to eat them, and every day, I don’t. I was so desperate for a Poke bowl that I told Chris that we were going for our Friday date night, and that I didn’t care what he wanted for dinner (Chris wanted tacos, FYI). Continue reading “Calgary Date Night: Po-Ke Bowl Review & Bow River Walk”

Why I shouldn’t be a Food Blogger and Why I am One

Why I shouldn’t be a Food Blogger and Why I am One

I really, really shouldn’t be a food blogger, and here’s why: I have absolutely no authority on what is good food and what isn’t. Whenever I walk into a restaurant and start talking about the quality of the food, I feel like I have the same level of expertise as my dog who will eat a week-old charred chickpea off the kitchen floor. Continue reading “Why I shouldn’t be a Food Blogger and Why I am One”

#YYCTacoFiesta Anejo Restaurant

#YYCTacoFiesta Anejo Restaurant

Calgary’s 2017 Taco Fiesta invites restaurants from across the city to come up with some delicious taco concoctions. For each item bought in connection to the YYC Taco Fiesta, some proceeds go towards two charities: The Calgary Homeless Foundation and Kids Up Front. I don’t think I need to go into the details as to why this is a great initiative, but I believe every little bit counts towards serving those who are a part of our community.

Unicorn Frappucino Is Here!

Unicorn Frappucino Is Here!

You’ve heard it right – the unicorn frappucino is a real creature that is only available when you believe.

I was lucky enough to receive a unicorn frappucino early on in the craze, and managed to snag some photos before all the whip cream melted. It’s definitely pretty and bold, and caters to the summer buzz right now. Who isn’t ready to relax with a neon pink and blue frappucino? Continue reading “Unicorn Frappucino Is Here!”

Hunting for the Best Thai in YYC

Hunting for the Best Thai in YYC

Because I am committed and determined to create interesting blog posts, I decided to go to two YYC Thai restaurants in the span of two days to test out their food. You may think that it’s just because I had Thai cravings and really, really love coconut rice and cashew chicken, but no – it’s because I was committed to writing a Thai food blog post. Not at all because I’m gluttonous and wanted a ton of Thai food.  Continue reading “Hunting for the Best Thai in YYC”

TELUS Spark: Sustainable Food and Star Trek

TELUS Spark: Sustainable Food and Star Trek

Calgary’s TELUS Spark’s new restaurant, Social Eatery, is “home cooking with a global twist”. Chris and I were fortunate enough to try it out thanks to a generous friend of his, and we were especially excited once hearing that celebrity chef, Roger Mooking, was the master behind the tantalizing online images. It was a pretty great night of science and food, not to mention the Star Trek exhibit we went through!  Continue reading “TELUS Spark: Sustainable Food and Star Trek”

Social Activism and Tea: Solidaritea

Social Activism and Tea: Solidaritea

When I was at Heritage Park for the annual sugar festival, Chris and I happened across a table with little paper bags. I didn’t expect much from the table, and really wasn’t planning on spending any more money that day, but as I walked by, the woman behind the table started talking about her tea.  Continue reading “Social Activism and Tea: Solidaritea”
