Thai Pagoda – Canmore, Alberta

I was wanting some Thai food, as we recently had some that was quite disappointing. We found Thai Pagoda which is in Canmore on the main avenue of Bow Valley Trail and it’s not a large place and there’s parking outside.

I knew I wanted their hot soup as it was a chilly day, so we order Tom Kha Noodle Soup which is their spicy coconut milk soup, basically like a Tom Yum with coconut milk. We ordered this soup with chicken and it hit the spot. The soup was quite tasty and there was a good amount of noodles too! The broth was really nicely made and the noodles were a little under cooked, but as it socked up the soup, it turned out to be really flavourful.

We also ordered one of my favourite Thai dishes, we got a plate of their Pad Sa Hew and it was pretty delicious here, and it’s quite a simple dish, but it was pretty good! The dish was fresh and it was good! I really love the soft noodles with the sweet soy sauce, and that’s why this item always makes it to the top of my favourite Thai dish list!

We ended with their Sticky Mango and it was amazing! The mango tasted amazing, the rice was nice, and it was just an awesome dessert! Definitely one of our favourite sticky mango dish!

Overall, the food here was amazing! I can’t wait to come back for more dessert! The food tastes quite authentic! We had an amazing experience here!

Spice Hut East Indian Cuisine – Canmore, Alberta

We made it to the top of Sulphur Mountain yet another time, and this time it got cold as we got to the top, and figured some nice curry would really warm us up. We went to Canmore, Alberta, where we stopped into Spice Hut East Indian Cuisine which is located right on Bow Valley Trail in Canmore, and there’s tons of parking in front of the restaurant.

Once we got in, we ordered some Indian Chai Tea which is one of my favourite teas and I love how everyone has their own special blend, and it make it fun to taste!

We eat Indian curries family style so we order a bunch of food and put it in the center of the table to share. We started with their Mango chicken Curry which was amazing! I really like the taste with the mango paste, with the ginger! It was something I don’t get to taste often that I love!

The other dish of curry that we enjoyed was their Beef Korma and it was also very tasty! Fragrant with a hint of spice, we really enjoyed this! This dish has boneless beef cooked in a whipped cream sauce with their spice. Not too spicy but full of flavour.

We ate these 2 curries with some stuffed naan, were we ordered their Beef Keema Naan which essentially is ground beef cooked in a tandor stuffed naan. It was really amazing to eat on it’s own, or with curry!

Our overall experience here was very satisfactory! It really hit the spot, warmed us up, filled us up! It was delightful!

Ramada Inn & Suites Canmore – Alberta

Recently, we went to Canmore, Alberta for a quick get-away, retreat! We booked a last minute room as it was a busy weekend in Banff due to all the holiday events going on in the area, including Christmas in the Rockies event Santa Claus Parade of Lights! It’s a fantastic local parade that Banff and area puts on. The hotel check-in was flawless, and just because of the age of the town of Canmore, we weren’t really expecting too much for the hotel.

The room wasn’t anything special, and in fact, we must have gotten the smallest room in the hotel as the pictures online are quite different from our experience. I especially noticed the bathroom, as all other bathrooms seems to have counter space, where in our situation, there was little to no space, with the toilet tucked behind the door. It was quite an awkward layout.

The shower is a spacious walk in shower, nothing spectacular, but not bad at all. I was really happy that the bathroom and the room in general was clean and not horribly disguising. The toilet was fine and the bathroom amenities were quite nice actually! I really like the bathroom amenities as they use San Francisco Soap Company with the scent of Sugared Citrus. It left a wonderful citrus fragrant in the bathroom, which wasn’t over powering – it was very satisfying!

Our room had 2 queen beds which was plenty of space for the 2 of us. I’m sure for families, it would be enough space, but not the bathroom. I’m not sure the little glass shelf above the sink would hold too much things for an entire family.

The nice thing about this hotel is that it offers a fridge and microwave! It would really come handy if you have left over meals from children or just want to keep food. The coffee maker is awesome too – it uses a disposable tray with a pre packaged coffee grind. I made 2 cups of coffee and I loved the taste of it!

We stayed at the wing that was past the pool area – where the breakfast area was! It was convenient as we came down in the morning without needing to step outside or walking the walk ways on the 3rd floor! The breakfast was fantastic and offered a great selection! Overall stay was quite nice, but I would try to get a room not facing the railway tracks next time as the train comes by hourly, and ends quite late – and starts up again quite early!
