If you know me, you know there are two things (among others, but these two especially) that I absolutely love.
Date nights and [good] food.
Leyda’s never disappoints. I love their healthy, wholesome, flavorful, balanced menu.
No doggie bag needed…They also have an unbeatable carrot cake that I still drool over. In Edmonton, my husband and I tried out Meat. As the name suggests, their specialty is meat – tender, mouth-watering, smoked meat. They also had a series of home-made sauces… Mouthwatering salad … They aren’t too fussed about presentation. We chose an apple bourbon porkchop (thick n juicy, not the kind you buy for $3 from Walmart) and beef brisket. Tender like you wouldn’t believe. And garlic fries made with real garlic (I’m a big fan of real garlic by the way… unlike the rest of my family… hey I married a Ukrainian so maybe I can blame it on that!). And a huuuge dill pickle.
Meat lovers must try this place. The next day, after a big sleep-in and an extremely leisurely morning/afternoon with our buddies in Edmonton, we went for a little snacky-poo. The place we wanted to hit was actually closed so we settled for a nearby option which proved to be a delight. Dane and I had a smoked salmon/caper/pear pizza. The name of the place was Tiramisu, so naturally we had to try out their tiramisu! After some shopping at WEM, we settled in for a cozy night of Ticket To Ride, Heads Up, and so on. We seriously were having such a good time playing Heads Up that 2:00am came around and we didn’t even notice. Nerds? I think so. We had a quick lunch before saying our goodbyes to this lovely couple, and hittin’ the old dusty trail. Sar and I also hit up Ayden one day on our lunch break. We had a decadent potato soup and a salad with ample greens and deep fried onion flakes. Some restaurants just really got it figured out and Ayden is one of them. And those are [a few] of my food adventures to date.
