Tzin Wine and Tapas Edmonton, AB - amazing food, drinks and dessert - the bacon made me forget my name lol!

Lots of my friends have raved about Tzin since it opened and finally had a chance to try it out a few months ago (yes, I know - really need to work on putting up posts sooner!).  But lets get onto the food!

Denmark in a day (or 3!) - Copenhagen - Smørrebrøds! Aamann's and Restaurant Schønnemann Part 2!

In our 5 part series that covered the few days we had eating and exploring Copenhagen, Denmark.. we covered in Part 1 - hotdogs, icecream and snacks, and now its on to the Smørrebrøds! Smørrebrøds are delicious open faced sandwiches with local, traditional ingredients on a slice of (usually) rye bread and served with subtle and knock your socks off homemade schnapps!  While there's probably hundreds of places to have Smørrebrøds in Copenhagen, with limited travel time and tummy space, we focused on the two best places to eat it... Michelin Guide-recommended Aaman's which has a more modern spin thanks to Chef Adam Aamann and his team (Address: Øster Farimagsgade 10, 2100 København Ø ), and Restaurant Schønnemann, serving traditional fare since 1877 (Address: Hauser Plads 16, 1127 København K).  Since "best" is very subjective, we had to try them both.. for comparison's sake :)

Acajutla, Edmonton, AB - tasty place for El Salvadorian fare.. and pupusas!! :D

One of our good Salvadorian friends was in town and he was craving the Mariachi tacos from Acajutla (even though he was flying out to visit family in El Salvador the next day!)  We rounded up the crew to give him a proper send off - with a tummy full of tasty El Salvadorian fare!

Denmark in a day (or 3!) - Copenhagen - the hotdogs, sausages, icecream, and snacks! Part 1

Over the next little while, I'll be posting up blog posts about our travels - haven't had time to post up stuff from last Caribbean trip and just finished one to Denmark, Germany and Austria, so going to make the effort to make time to post!  Gonna start of by saying the folks in Denmark are so darn friendly, you just want to pick them up and hug them.. possibly most friendly country I've been in yet!

Nan Chuu Ramen Izakaya - Richmond, Vancouver BC - tasty ramen with a fusion spin

We were craving ramen, and we had to be in the Richmond area, so it didn't make sense to drive into downtown Vancouver to eat at Santouka or Kintaro, so we hit up Nan Chuu Ramen Izakaya instead.  Run by the same folks as G-men, we figured their ramen should be tasty!  It looked promising as within several minutes of them opening (we missed the boat as we were circling for a parking spot), there was a huge line up out the door.  I'm not sure if its a given at ramen places in Vancouver, or if its just coincidence... if its not a cool day, out prepare to sweat bullets as none of them seem to have a/c! Anyhoos, onto the ramen!!
