Sherman (Sherman’s Food Adventures) was organizing a tasting for Chachi’s at Metrotown and kindly invited me to come along. =)
Chachi’s is a chain restaurant from Calgary and the Metrotown location is their first location in BC. They are located in the food court and the sandwiches are better than expected considering that they’re in the food court! Keep reading to find out which ones were my favourite! Continue reading →
Another overdue post from my visit to the Food Cart Fest. I was looking for some carbs so I decided to try Reel Mac and Cheese. I finally figured out why they’re called Reel Mac and Cheese! Because they’re dishes are sort of movie themed!
The Godzilla puts a Japanese spin on mac and cheese with roasted seaweed, Japanese mayo and teriyaki sauce. The mac and cheese was very creamy and I actually didn’t mind the Japanese mayo on top since before ordering it I thought it might be weird but hey it worked out. It was a nice savoury mac and cheese but not really too special to me or it’s not really how I like my mac and cheese.
Burgoo is known for its comfort food from many regions around the world. I also discovered that it’s next to The Last Crumb Bakery!!! We had to wait for a spot for brunch and they said it would be a half hour wait so guess what? We went next door to eat dessert first :D BEST PLAN EVER!!! I will blog about that some other time.
I ordered their classic Macaroni and Cheesewith aged white cheddar. It looked super delicious but after a while I was super full from all the carbs and cheese. And ok maybe the dessert I ate before hand… hahaha but it was very rich and heavy! While comforting, I think the flavour felt very one dimensional and I was starting to get sick of it but if you love cheese they don’t skimp at all! I guess I’m not a cheese person after all. This was the Eggs Ratatouille with “three scrambled eggs served over oven baked ratatouille with toasts, melted Gruyere, Emmenthal, Mozzarella and Chevre”. Sadly I was not the one who ordered this. I had considered it but my friend ordered it so I decided I should get something else. The vegetables were super tasty in the tomato sauce! It was also perfectly cheesy and the eggs were lightly scrambled. I like this better than the mac and cheese. The tart tomato sauce gave me a break from all the cheese I was eating when I stole bites from my friend. It was also much lighter and it had veggies!
