Sirloin steak

Calgary is Canada’s cow town. Home of the annual Stampede – Canada’s #1 Rodeo – it is a place where ten-gallon hats and belts with saucer-size trophy buckles are standard attire, and where Alberta beef commands respect no less than beef in Texas. One of the best places to eat that beef – as well as all sorts of other great food – is the River Café on Prince’s Island Park. The restaurant boasts that it offers regional woodfired Canadian cuisine, meaning it is local, modern, and delicious.

The restaurant's location in Prince's Island Park itself is magical, accessible only by foot, bicycle, or skates (no cars), Designed to look like a rustic fishing lodge, it is a romantic destination with an open deck shaded by cottonwood trees. The menu is a broad one, serving an authoritative repertoire of Northwest cuisine that ranges from such exotica as stinging nettle soup and Alberta lamb paté to a beautiful platter of cedar-planked wild salmon.

What drew our attention as we walked towards the front door was the aroma of sizzling meat; in particular, we relished a strip loin steak that was firm, full-flavored and as satisfying as only grass-raised, grain-finished beef can be. To compare and contrast, we also sampled an Alberta buffalo rib-eye. It came with fetching horseradish emulsion; it was juicy and flavorful; but tasty as it was, we’ll return for beef every time.

Roadfood of the Day: Zip's Cafe - Cincinnati, OH
Posted on Sunday, April 26, 2015


The chili at Zip's is just great! Available in take-home buckets as well, the chili has a strong tomato base and a slight sweetness. (Though Zip's is in Cincinnati, their chili is NOT Cincinnati-style chili.)

2 Hot Dogs

The chili dog is a classic. However, the new Chicago hot dog is definitely worth sampling.

Opened in 1929 and originally known as the Coney Island Café (for the chili-topped “Coney Island” hot dogs on the menu), Lindy’s Diner (formerly Lindy's Coffee Shop) is a relic of old Route 66 through the heart of Albuquerque. Although it is no longer open round-the-clock, it remains a slice-of-life diner where many regulars come to chat at the counter all morning long.

Lindy’s is a good place to know about if you are breezing through town in a hurry and are hungry for breakfast. In a crockpot near the gorgeous antique cash register is an assortment of hand-holdable breakfast burritos, which are tortillas wrapped around bacon, egg, and cheese with red or green chili. Excellent on-the-go eats!

It is said that Muhammad Ali once came to Lindy’s to eat a bowl of red chili which, while not of the sophisticated and high-priced Santa Fe style, is a hearty bowl of good, rib-sticking diner fare with a genuine New Mexico zest. The menu is a big and familiar, including all sorts of hamburgers, Greek salad, and blue plate specials. We like Lindy’s meat loaf dinner: big, chunky slabs of moist loaf accompanied by smooth whipped potatoes and blanketed with brown gravy.

At the counter or in an upholstered booth in the front room affords a fine view of life on Central Avenue, coming and going as it has now for more than eighty years.
