The Week That Was And Is – March 31st, 2010

This last week has been really busy, and the upcoming week shows no sign of slowing down. So while I could talk about a lot this week; like how you can cook bacon with a gun, or how this redesign of the Coca-Cola bottle looks like the most amazing midterm project, or how Free lunch at the Facebook offices are back (I wonder if that means the economy is up and running down south), or that this New York bar is planning to set their prices based on a stock-market system, heck, I can keep it local and talk about how Edmonton Journal Bistro writer Liane Faulder isn’t as secure in her age as she might have thought, but I won’t..

What I really want to say, or should I say, ask, is for a suggestion or two as I’ll be on the road hitting both Calgary and Saskatoon over the next week. As two contrasting cities, Calgary as open and easy as Tiger Woods, Saskatoon, the shy wallflower; I’ve run into a small wall trying to discover Saskatoon from a distance. So if there are any places worth going, let me know and I’ll put them on my list. Thanks!

  1. I’m originally from Saskatoon, and new to Edmonton. (I check out Edmonton food blogs to get a sense of the Edmonton food scene). I really suggest you check out Konga Cafe. It is a hidden gem, unknown to many Saskatoonians, and they make some killer Jamaican food (unlike anything I have ever had in Edmonton). The address escapes me, but it is located on the west side of the city. There are many, many overrated restaurants in Saskatoon, so be wary of which ones you choose.

  2. One of my friends had been talking about doing a road trip to Saskatoon for a couple of years for no other reason than to have a burger at Fuddruckers. I remember the chain being here but don’t remember ever going there when it was here but from her talking about it I would totally give it a try. Not an independent restaurant but maybe worth looking into.
    Have fun!

  3. Apparently I missed out and everyone knows about the great burgers except for me….maybe I should be taking her up on that road trip!

  4. Any diner in Calgary! But you probably already knew I would say that :). Have a great trip!
