Food Notes for September 2, 2013

What a beautiful long weekend! It feels nothing like September – let’s hope this weather continues on into the month. On to this week’s food notes:

  • A reminder that the 124 Street Red Shoe Crawl is on September 8, 2013. Tickets are still available!
  • Tavern 103, Larry Stewart’s venture in the Alberta Hotel (9802 Jasper Avenue), is now open!
  • Su alerted me to the forthcoming The Italian Place that looks to fill the vacancy left by That’s Aroma (11010 101 Street). Anyone know more?
  • Vue Weekly reviewed Japonais Bistro last week.
  • Chris wrote about the most recent 10 Mile Meal that took place in August. Sorry to have missed it!
  • I love reading about some of things being done to try and direct people to pick up more produce items at the grocery store.
  • I’ve always ordered pho when it is offered on a Vietnamese menu, but last week at Mama Pizza, opted for a vermicelli bowl instead. On a day when I wasn’t up for soup, it hit the spot!

  • Mack and I had dinner at our neighbourhood Blue Plate Diner on Friday. The shepherd’s pie was delicious, and their sweet potato fries are among the best in the city.
