Costa Vida- Calgary

Nacho PlateI am love these Mexican Quasi Fast Food restaurants that are popping up. Much like subway, you get to pick what goes in your burrito. This restaurant is in the same vein as a Mucho Burrito type restaurant. Our family of five all quite liked. It is a fun change while dining out, and not too hard on the pocket books either. I had the Nachos, which were lovely and I would definitely order again. The rest of the family had smothered burritos, with rice and beans on the side. The kids weren’t crazy about the beans, but hey, they rarely are, so I just added them to my nacho plate and everyone was happy. Nice location, very clean, nice staff. All in all a nice fast dining experience.

Nando’s Chicken- Calgary

Nando's ChickenWe have finally tried Nando’s Chicken, and I cannot believe that it took us this long. What a fun (and delicious) restaurant. Also, very affordable. We got the family pack, which feeds 3-4, with chicken, choice of two sides, and choice of garlic bread or buns. We went with fries (wouldn’t have been my top choice, but hey kids love em) and vegetables (this was my choice, and mom loved em), and garlic bread, which everybody loved! On the side of the restaurant you find, a variety of sauces to use to your dipping pleasure. This works great as I love spicy and the kiddos do not, so I can spice up my chicken and leave it plain for the spice intolerant. There you also find nice big jugs of water to help yourself too, which I like. I drink a lot of water and it is very helpful to be able to serve yourself as opposed to waiting for a waitress to come and help you. Overall, we love this place, and will surely be back!

The Fine Diner Bistro – Calgary

Bacon Burger and FriesOur new favourite place to dine is The Fine Diner Bistro. We have discovered a few beautiful little dishes here, and the actual restaurant is a cute little spot right in Inglewood. Love the decor, love the food. Hubs, is one of those rare individuals who finds one thing he likes on a menu and sticks with it! He ordered the duck Benny the first time in for breakfast and proclaimed it so good, he wold never try anything new again. Enter lunch. I ordered the Bacon Cheeseburger, and may have discovered the best burger in town. I was nice. I shared with hubby, and he loved it. Now he has two things that are both amazing. Our youngest ordered the pancakes, (you get an option of plain, blueberry, chocolate chip) I won’t need to tell you she chose chocolate. It is a huge stack of pancakes. Even with me pilfering off her plate (couldn’t help myself, too good!), she ate the leftovers for days! All 5 of us, just love this little gem. Plus, ┬ábonus for you all, it accommodates gluten-free, so if that is necessary for your family you can feel safe eating here. I’m sure you’ll feel right at home!

Rocky Mountain Flatbread Co. – Banff

Margherita PizzaWe tried out a new pizza place this weekend. It was not in usual location Calgary, we were up for a day in Banff. We tried Rocky Mountain Flatbread, which is located on the bottom floor of one of the mall food courts. With many different options to choose from, plus a make your own option, we decided to share a few smalls and try out some different flavours. We went with the standard flavours, Margherita and Pepperoni, and went outside the box a bit and also tried the Apple Chicken. Both the Margherita and Pepperoni were hits, and although we liked the apple chicken, I’m not sure we would make an effort to go back and order it. The service was very friendly, the pizza was piping hot. The cheese was just as obey gooey as you could want, so all in all, it was a perfect little lunch.
