Tubby Dog – Calgary, Alberta

We were craving something different a while ago in the past, and I remember Tubby Dog as it was yesterday. The hot dogs were massive, and delicious! These hot doges may seem expensive when you’re ordering them, but when they arrive, it truly a meal of it’s own!

We ordered 2 types of dogs, one was the massive Sherm’s Ultimate Gripper: dog is bacon wrapped then deep fried. topped with ham, home made chili, cheese, mustard, bacon, hot peppers, onions and a fried egg. The other was just a normal Tubby Dog with homemade chili, cheese, mustard, onions, and bacon.

The Dessert House – Calgary, Alberta

The Dessert House is one of my favorite places to go in Calgary. There’s quite a few things on the menu that I really enjoy!

One of my favorite things are the deep fried cuttlefish balls. I know, I can make it at home myself, but it’s pretty neat to have such appetizers with a nice bubble tea.

I have a few favorite drinks at the Dessert House. At the end of the year, my favorite drink would be the fresh persimmon drink. It’s really good! It actually just tastes like persimmons blended up!! I love persimmons, and I just eat it as is. I leave the blending to the Dessert House. Another favorite drink of mine would be either the pineapple or lychee green tea (cold) with no jellies or pearls.

I’ve never been a fan of the large tapioca balls or jellies in any of my drinks, but I do appreciate a good bubble tea!

The Dessert House offers an extensive selection of snacks on their menu, from steamed rice crepes to instant noodles! We use to go here for a small dinner, or a late night snack and order lots of delicious treats.

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!
