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!

China Rose – Calgary

Won Ton, China RoseOur family goes out once a week, and then the rest of the week we eat at home. We like to splurge that one fun day a week, and after church is the perfect time to do it. A day for the family to spend together, plus it is easier than making lunch for a bunch of ravenous people. So after church we head out and always have a good time. It has been ages since we have been to a buffet, they are in low commodity now a days. When I was a kid they seem to be much more popular, and easier to find. As luck would have it, there is a lovely Chinese buffet right by our church location. So we headed there for lunch. With a 13.99 all-you-can eat price, with only 7.00 for 12 and under, it certainly was very affordable. We got there a bit before they opened, (12 on Sundays) so everything was fresh and piping hot when we got to it. They had y personal favourite Won Ton soup, so I was happy, and the girls loved the all-you-can eat Mango ice cream. All in all, we left very happy with full bellies, and satisfied grins.

La Piccola Napoli Ristorante – Calgary

Veal ParmesanHubs has wanted to find a really great Italian restaurant as his go-to for a while as not only his favourite, but also our second favourite have closed. Always a sad time, when one of your standards closes its door. Hubs is all about the Caesar Salad, and Veal Parmesan, so we were looking for a restaurant that excelled in both. We have found it. Tucked away in Bonavista we found this delightful little gem. It is also really close to the “cheap seats” the discount movie theatre. So this is pretty much the new perfect date night. Pasta and movies, no place to go wrong there. Go for the food, stay for the delightful decor.

Open Sesame – Calgary

Stir-FryThe company Christmas party this year was at Open Sesame. One of my very favourite things, about the Christmas party is when we get to try out a new restaurant. I have been to Mongolie Grill, which is a similar concept, but have never made my way over to Open Sesame. We got a lovely room, practically to ourselves. We had one waiter, that took very good care of us, and the food was very good. I went ahead and made my own stir-fry, which I did not add enough sauce too. My bad. I liked the choice of options that you could choose to accompany. Coconut Rice was my choice, there were many different rice, and noodles.The appetizers were great, and the best dish of the night, was the one piece of Kung Pao Chicken, that I got to try from my father-in-laws plate. Although I didn’t opt to have any dessert the majority of the guests tried the banana wonton, and they were a big success as well. All in all it was a lovely night.
