What a night! Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate our 15th annual Best Restaurant Awards at @willowparkwines tonight, and to the amazing top 25 restaurants who made delicious dishes for the occasion. Calgary’s food scene is so strong right now and we can’t wait to see where it goes from here. Special thanks to our sponsor @qualicoyyc as well!
There’s nothing fishy about Calgary’s newest sweet treat. @uzutaiyaki offers taiyaki, a sweet Japanese waffle cake in the shape of a fish, topped with soft serve in flavours like pandan, red bean, matcha or vanilla. You’ll find this new eatery and its tasty, next-level ice cream cones in Chinatown now!
