@lavagrillcanada is a fast casual restaurant concept that offers Mediterranean cuisines. They have either stand-alone restaurants or can be found conveniently at the mall's food court.
I had the pleasure to try some of their delicious platters, wraps, and milkshake. We tried their 𝙢𝙞𝙭 & 𝙗𝙚𝙚𝙛 𝙨𝙝𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙨, 𝙘𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙚𝙣 & 𝙙𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙞𝙧 𝙨𝙝𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖 𝙬𝙧𝙖𝙥𝙨, 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙬𝙗𝙚𝙧𝙧𝙮 𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙠𝙨𝙝𝙖𝙠𝙚.
My favorite is the chicken shawarma in the platter and the donair wrap. Each dish was super filling. We finished the meal nicely with a milkshake to fill in all the cracks.
Be sure to pop by and try them out if you are craving shawarma! They have 3 location in Calgary at the moment.
Thank you @lavagrill_marketmall and @lavagrillcanada for this delightful meal.

I am one who is good at eating but not when it comes to cooking LOL. So when I had the chance to try out @goodfoodca , I was pretty excited!
𝗜𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂'𝗱 𝗹𝗶𝗸𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗿𝘆 𝗮 𝗳𝗿𝗲𝗲 𝗯𝗼𝘅 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗚𝗼𝗼𝗱𝗳𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝘁𝗼𝗱𝗮𝘆, 𝘀𝗲𝗻𝗱 𝗺𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗲𝗺𝗮𝗶𝗹 𝘁𝗵𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗗𝗠𝘀. It'll save you the pain of trying to figure out what to make for a few days 😋.
The process of picking your meals per week is very quick and easy online. It gives you the chance to try so many unique cuisines. After that, you just wait for your goods to be delivered on your chosen date.
Each meal kit is nicely prepared and packaged. The instructions for cooking are easy to follow, and each meal is fairly quick to make too. I find each dish well portioned for 2 people and the flavors are delicious!
Last week I tried the pad see ew, seared pork chops, and asparagus bucatini. My favorite was the pad see ew. It was so enjoyable!
Thank you @goodfoodca for the gifted box to try!
(Free box is exclusive to new members for a value of up to $72)
Finally got to check out the super popular donut shop that recently opened in Calgary this year.
@greedydonut_yyc offers freshly baked cream -filled donuts. There are many delicious flavors to choose from and also limited flavors! They make limited quantity of donuts each day, so make sure you go early to get the flavor you want.
We got a box of 6 donuts: 𝘮𝘪𝘭𝘬 𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘮, 𝘴𝘸𝘦𝘦𝘵 𝘤𝘰𝘳𝘯, 𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘸𝘣𝘦𝘳𝘳𝘺 𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘮, 𝘰𝘳𝘦𝘰 𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘮 𝘤𝘩𝘦𝘦𝘴𝘦, 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘭 𝘭𝘦𝘮𝘰𝘯, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘙𝘦𝘦𝘴𝘦'𝘴 and an iced dolce latte.
I enjoyed all the flavors! The donut itself was so soft and fluffy. The cream filling was not too sweet either but had the right amount of flavor. They not only sell donuts but also non coffee and coffee drinks!
I recommend giving their donuts and drinks a try! 🤩

@otafest is happening this weekend from May 19-21 at the Telus Convention Center.
It is an annual conference for anime enthusiasts. Fans can cosplay as their favorite characters, shop at local vendors, discover new artists, and enjoy many of the other events happening.
Though the single and weekend passes are 𝒔𝒐𝒍𝒅 𝒐𝒖𝒕 already, you can still check out the free events around the area. But to shop at the vendors and enter certain spots, you would need a pass to enter.
If you are going to Otafest this weekend, what are you most excited to check out?!
@neighbourhoodpubyyc is a new casual spot to hang with friends any day of the week.
You can catch up with friends by playing pool, listening to music, enjoy various foods and drinks. They also have local artists come in on certain days of the week to perform.

A beautiful modern Japanese restaurant located on the busy streets of 17th Ave SW, Calgary.
@lonelymouthbar has a wide menu of delicious options to choose from.
We ordered a variety of dishes! And one particular dish that stood out to me the most was the squid tempura. It is so soft and fresh! I highly recommend it. Everything else was still enjoyable, but the squid was just wow 🤩.
Thank you @inkji.co for this delicious evening and being my hand model ❤️.

@mrluyyc is a hidden spot in downtown Calgary that offers Japanese street food, personal sized hot pot, sushi, and more!
We customized our two hot pot soups and proteins. Tried the kim chi soup with seafood and tonkotsu soup with beef. They were good combos and the kim chi was not overly spicy.
We also got a bowl of curry ramen, mango tango roll, Alaskan roll, and chicken karaage. By the end of the meal, we were soo full! The sushi rolls were very filling.
Thank you @yummytummyyc and @jai_ryuukie_789 for coming to feast with me. And thank you @yycfoodmama and @mrluyyc for inviting us! #hosted

The newest Asian dessert shop that recently opened in @calgarychinatown .
Growing up, I have always loved the diverse Asian desserts, or also known as "sugar water". And now I get to find them all in one place at @mamadessertcanada
I ordered the:
- 𝘎𝘳𝘢𝘴𝘴 𝘫𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘵𝘢𝘳𝘰 𝘮𝘰𝘤𝘩𝘪
- 𝘉𝘭𝘢𝘤𝘬 𝘴𝘦𝘴𝘢𝘮𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘵𝘢𝘳𝘰 𝘮𝘰𝘤𝘩𝘪

- 𝘑𝘢𝘱𝘢𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘦 𝘤𝘩𝘦𝘦𝘴𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘪𝘯 𝘸𝘢𝘧𝘧𝘭𝘦
My favorite items were the mango mochi and the cheese coin waffle. The mochi was very soft and it went very well with the fresh mango. The cheese coin waffle had a good balance of both sweet and savory flavors.
Which are you favorite desserts?

One of my favorite ramen spots in Calgary. @chicking.yyc is a hidden gem that offers authentic Japanese ramen.
This time when we visited, we tried:
- The secret ramen (You have to ask the staff for it when you're there in person 😉)
- Tonkotsu shoyu
- Chicken Karaage
- Mochi matcha parfait
I have not yet had a ramen flavor that disappointed me from Chicking yet. My goal is try them all eventually! Looking forward to visiting again 🤩.
Have you tried Chicking yet?!
