Be a Villager with Village Ice Cream

Village Ice Cream Store

Village Ice Cream Store

All my friends have tried Village Ice Cream and have been raving about it ever since. The fact is, we are never in the Stampede area so we haven’t tried it…until now. The only thing is, we tried it at the Britannia branch on Elbow Drive near 50th Avenue.

Is it the best ice cream I have ever had? Yes. Is it the greatest tasting ice cream I have ever had? Yes. Is it going to be my #1 ice cream store? Yes.

If you have never tried it then go try it. You will find their ice cream to be rich, creamy and good. The best way to describe it is, your very own homemade ice cream with all natural ingredients.

My favourite flavours are the Phil & Sebastian, Salted Caramel and any of the berries flavours.

Koto not my Goto

Grilled Halibut

Grilled Halibut

Thanks to the drop in oil price, I had to curb my spending on eating out. Hence the reason why I haven’t blogged much about food lately – sorry! After not eating Japanese food for awhile, I finally broke down and bought a Groupon to try out Koto, a Japanese restaurant and bar. The place is nice with Terra Cotta warriors in the front, seating against the window, a drinks bar, dining room and sushi bar in the back.

The hostess decided to seat us in the back where the sushi bar was behind us and we had a clear picture of who sat at the bar and what drinks they were having. I can see this how outside visitors staying across the street (at the Westin) could come here for a night cap.

We decided to order an entree each and share. I chose the steak and my wife chose the Grilled Halibut. I enjoyed my steak but the halibut was not good at all. For some reason, we both had expected the halibut to be a slice rather than filet. It didn’t look like halibut and the taste wasn’t good either. It was warm, not hot. And stiff. Was it basa?

There were plenty of veggies that came with both entrees and the fried ball actually contained fried rice which was a pleasant surprise. I initially thought it was a large potato tater.
