Support Drift

Support Drift Food Truck!
Support Local Business!

The Story

Drift Food Truck has been regularly parked on 108 Street and Jasper Avenue since last season. A few short weeks ago, they showed up at their regular spot to find that they could no longer park there due to construction.

After working with their Street Vending Coordinator, they were able to relocate quickly to a spot on 100 Ave and 108 Street. Although they only park there 3-4 times a week, a nearby business owner has been complaining to both the City of Edmonton and to Kara and Nevin Fenske – the owners and operators of Drift Food Truck daily.

Mr Moo's Adventures First Year Anniversary

At Lux Steakhouse, picture by @Dudleydavid
Even though this blog has existed longer than a year, it didn't officially become a food blog until a year ago. May 13 is a day that changed the course of this blog and my life forever. That is the day that I met @thepolishviking in person, and she encouraged me to continue my blog as a food blog, as it brought a unique perspective that seemed to be unexplored in the #yegfood blogging scene - that from a bovine and a faux fur.

Other Calgary Eats and Treats - Coffee, Donuts, and Pastries

Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters

Beautiful Latte Art
A local artisan coffee shop, Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters is a homey place that makes a might fine cup of coffee, complete with coffee art. With two locations, one in Marda Loop, the other in a far-flung corner of Chinook Mall, it’s worth seeking them out.

The lattes they produce are spot on with perfectly steamed milk giving it just a hint of sweetness, topped thick rich foam and adorned with beautiful latte art.

A Hearty Brunch at Wurst Restaurant and Beer Hall

$3 Mimosa - how can I resist?
For our final day in Calgary, we knew we’d only be around for the morning before we had to catch the Red Arrow, so we opted to have brunch and chose Wurst, a German beer hall. With a fairly extensive brunch menu and $3 mimosas, it was hard to narrow down what we wanted to try – or limit myself to just a single beverage – however it wouldn’t work out to get drunk before catching a bus home to #yeg.
