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.

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!

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).

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.

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”
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”
The first time I had rolled ice cream I was in foodie heaven. It was in Vancouver’s famous night market and it was everything I had hoped rolled ice cream would be. I had creeped Instagram and online videos with rolled ice cream before, but eating it for the first time, it was so good my boyfriend and I decided to buy another rolled ice cream before we left the night market. Continue reading “Calgary’s Rolled Ice Cream Scene”
While Chris was driving us home after my birthday dinner, we passed through Crowfoot, a large area in North West Calgary full of shops, restaurants, and quite literally anything you can imagine. It’s a trending suburb, with plenty of new businesses opening to grapple for consumer attention.
I can only imagine what my face looked like when I was gazing out the window, ridiculously full from Teatro’s six-course meal and sleepy from a long night at the orchestra, when I saw it. There it was – a place so close to home, and so full of fried chicken.
Korean Fried Chicken. Continue reading “Korean Fried Chicken – Crunchy House”
