Crepes & Cravings – Calgary, Alberta

This one evening, I met up with a good friend, and we decided to grab dinner at Crepes & Cravings located right on 17th Avenue. It’s a cute little place that offers both sweet and savoury crepes, and even gelato!

I never know what I want to eat. It’s best if you order for me… but, this day, I knew I wanted their Philly Cheese Roast Beef crepe, and it was a good one! It was jammed packed with roast beef and provolone, lettuce, tomato, onion and their cheese sauce! It was actually a lot more filling that I would ever imagine!

My husband went for his go-to if he sees it, and so he ordered the Montreal Smoked Meat Crepe and it definitely looked good – filled with Montreal smoked meat with Swiss cheese, spinach, tomato and mustard! We normally would split half and half, but by the time I finished half of my crepe, he was pretty much done! So, I actually never tried it. Clearly, he was in love with it!

My friend ordered the The Sicilian and I must admit, her’s looked THE BEST! I didn’t try it either, but she loved it! Her crepe was filled with Italian meats and provolone cheese, roasted pepeers, tomatoes, onions and olives!

At the end of this visit, we all agreed this is the perfect place for a light dinner, or an awesome lunch! We all thought we would be back! Next time, maybe we’ll split some crepes and make room for dessert crepes or gelato!

Khao San Thai Kitchen

We actually came across this restaurant on Uptown 17th Ave by luck – the place I was wanting to eat didn’t do what we wanted them to… so, we walked around the block and came across Khao San Thai Restaurant and I’m so happy I did!

It was an odd hour for lunch as it was kind of late, but they still had quite a bit of tables out on the patio and inside as well. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was really nice. It smelled a lot like incense inside, but that smell doesn’t bother me at all.

When I finally figured out that I wanted to try their Khao Soi Gai, I ordered it and it came relative quickly! It not only looked amazing, but it tasted really good too! It’s a soup noodle dish with egg noodles, chicken thigh and had coconut milk in the soup.

We also ordered their Red Curry with Beef and the portions was fairly big! It was one of the tastier Thai curries we’ve had, so we were really excited!

Overall, the food was just amazing, the service was friendly and the bill wasn’t too damaging either! We loved it and I’m sure I’ll be back when I’m in the area! I’ve even started recommending this location to people – so hopefully it remains just as amazing!
