Machef

Here’s to continuing my streak of checking out all the Korean restaurants in YEG. One of my pre-pandemic ventures was a visit to Machef.

I originally found this place through IG and it was recommended to me by several […]

Photolog: Menjiro Ramen

I’ve been going to Menjiro Ramen pretty often lately! Their menu and ramen bowls have significantly improved over time and their prices are super affordable (starting at $10.50).
