Gama Cafe, Edmonton, A - new location, tasty desserts and buttery foam topped tea!

With the summer days being deliciously warm, we went a few times to Gama Cafe to pick up drinks to cool off and desserts in the evening.  Noone wants to stay inside on a warm muggy summer day and chillaxing in Gama's new location with chic boutique look and feel is just the ticket.  They've even taken the buttery foam they put on their gama teas and incorporated it into desserts and thick toast (think French toast but better!) They have hot food like risotto and pasta now too, but we've always went for drinks and dessert since they opened, even when they were at their original location, so...onto the drinks and dessert!

Anju Korean Tapas, Calgary AB - great tapas, wine and more!

Eat to drink, drink to live, live to eat. Words to live by in my books. Chef Roy Oh opened the original location back in 2008, and now has moved to new digs and swank decor at 344 17 Ave SW.  Its a place with a well thought out drink/cocktail menu to pair with an extensive tapas menu, and with the open kitchen and modern dark woods, korean kimchee jars and open feel- its a happening and welcoming place.

Urban China Edmonton, AB - back for tasty and adventurous Chinese dinner!

A few months before the big day, we headed over to Urban China to try out a more adventurous menu than usual... we had a big group and were indecisive, so we ordered a Chinese set meal for 10 randomly off the menu. Could we read the menu? Nope! Did we have any idea what we were going to eat - nope! Was it adventurous and tasty? Yup!
