Taste of Calgary 2008
Has anyone been down yet this year?
Anything worthwhile? notable? must have?
Looking at the online menu, nothing really piques my interest; and everything seems rather pricey, at an average of about 5 tickets (x$0.75 per ticket) per meal item / 3 tickets for drinks/dessert items.
I went for lunch today with a friend. We tried the lamb and the calamari from Pegasus, the mud pie from SoHo, the passionfruit slush from *atomic, and the Voyant Chai Cream.
The lamb was not particularly tender or flavourful but the freshly fried calamari was excellent: lightly breaded, hot, and tender. Mud pie was, like the lamb, rather meh and the passionfruit slush was notable if only for its intense passionfruit taste and ice-y cool in today's heat.
The Voyant Chai Cream, however, was a great find. Something like Kahlua or Bailey's, but chai-flavoured, it was smooth with a nice peppery kick at the end. It'd be a great in a chai-tini, if one was to make such a drink.
