Gourmet Croissant – Canmore, Alberta

Gourmet Croissant is a neat little place that is on Bow Valley Trail (one of the main roads that runs through Canmore). We went in the early morning, just as it opened on a weekend. It was really quiet in the store, but a nice little comfortable location for sure!

I think as we were there soo early, they had nothing ready besides plain croissant and chocolate one. They didn’t have the sandwiches yet or something, but regardless, we ordered ourselves some plain croissants and some hot chocolate.

When we first got our croissant, we kind of giggled to ourselves, as it didn’t look flaky or much like anything for that matter! However, as we started eating it, it was really soft, a slight sweetness to the croissant, and it was crispy out the outside too. It turned out to be a really good croissant!! So, it is true – never judge a book by it’s cover! We were thoroughly impressed.

The hot chocolate looked spectacular, and of course tasted good. It’s quite hard to goof up on hot chocolate! 🙂 So, our overall experience at Gourmet Croissant was a positive one. I think I will return, but there are also soo many other great things I would love to try in Canmore! We’ll see!

Mucho Burrito – Calgary, Alberta

I set foot in a Mucho Burrito for the first time today (Cinco de Mayo), and they conveniently had a special going on for a medium burrito for $5!! So, I tried the Medio – 12″ Pan Seared Tilapia on white tortilla.

Of course, in competition, my other half had a Mucho XL Burrito Barbacoa – Marinated beef, slow cooked and shredded on white tortilla.

Oolong Tea House McKenzie Towne – Calgary, Alberta

I love tea houses, as they are called. Oolong Tea House in McKenzie Towne offers a huge selection of tea, and they let you enjoy your tea without any problems. This is due to the fact the location is large, so it can accommodate a lot of thirsty guests.

We didn’t actually try tea with tea leaves during our stop at Oolong Tea House. That particular day, i wanted to try their Chai Tea Latte, and just to compare and contrast with my favorite location’s Chai Tea.

I hate to say, but I do prefer my favorite location for the Chai Tea, but I will definitely be trying their teas that uses tea leaves, as that’s what they’re known for. I guess it was silly that I didn’t do that, but I didn’t crave anything else on that day.
