Impeccable service and scents are the first thing that greet you when entering Waa Cow!
The food is much like the bright neon interior, it’s loud, it’s in your face, and subtlety is not the name of the game here.
I got a great deal off Burpple Beyond here, which gave me TWO SETS of Mentai Hokkaido Oysters, Torched Hokkaido Scallops, and the Wagyu Sukiyaki Gyudon (but I requested for an upgrade, which the owner so kindly agreed to, hehe) for $59! What a steal.
I was given the chance to upgrade my Wagyu Sukiyaki Gyudon to the Truffle Wagyu Beef Bowl (22.90) and of course, I went for it. The heavy scent of truffle and smoke instantly hits you once the bowl arrives. It’s almost like a warning sign of the intense savoriness that would be coming in the very first bite. The wobbly, supple beef slices melted away effortlessly, while the fluffy bed of rice became a melting pot of beef fat, egg yolk, tobiko, and truffle oil. Almost made me want to lick the bowl clean.
The oysters and scallops were both really fresh, and I liked that the scallops were served cold, while the torched mentaiko was warm. It gave a nice contrast of temperatures that was really addictive. The oysters were plump, juicy, clear and just slightly salty. Drizzle it with a bit of ponzu sauce, and it makes for a bite-sized citrusy rush of ocean flavour.
Of course I couldn’t resist ordering the Foie Gras and Ikura ($9.90), which is honestly pretty cheap for what they gave. Two chunks of glazed and torched foie gras, yuzu shavings, an onsen egg, and a spoonful of ikura. Unfortunately it wasn’t my favourite, I felt the foie gras was a tad overcooked and dry, and the little ikura globules didn’t have the popping saltiness that I enjoy from it. .
If you’re going to come, do consider using the Burpple Beyond set, it’s really value for money, and you still get a choice of half a pint of Asahi, or red/white wine! The staff are also really friendly and helpful, which made for a really pleasant experience.

I have a confession to make....I have NEVER been to a #PhilzCoffee in the 8 years I have been in the #BayArea 😱☕. I know....I'm crazy to have waited this long 😜. The staff @philzmiddlefield is irreplaceable and needs to recognized as THE👏🏾 WHOLE👏🏾 DANG👏🏾 PACKAGE. Thank you to everyone of you (Kyle is my #spiritbae 🙌🏾) for making my first experience the best. I will be back soon for all that energy ya'll got!!!💁🏾♀️🤩
I want to give a special thank you to my best friend Amy for picking me up when I was down and out today and making the whole day so much brighter. I don't know what I did to deserve you but I'm so glad we moved closer to you!!!
We tried this Seafood Barley Risotto at @266wineroomandbar which was loaded with treasures from the sea - mussels, clams and prawns cooked in a broth and then smeared with some lovely cheese. This was brilliant!
I know, I know.. December seems like a crazy time for ice cream, but this was on my shortlist of a few things to checkout while in town! Luckily, my husband finished work early, so we were able to squeeze in some @madebymarcus ice cream before making the driving back home! We share a 2 scoop cut and had the Secret Barrel Rum & Eggnog and the Douglas Fir & Pine Nut Brittle!
The Douglas Fir & Pine Nut Brittle was interesting. I've never tasted a pine tree, but my husband and I decided that if we ever were to eat a pine tree, it would probably taste like the spices in the ice cream 🤣🤣 it was definitely unique and we would have it again!

I couldn't leave Calgary without stopping in to @byollia! I have wanted to check it out for a while, but I haven't been to Calgary since 2014 😯 so yesterday morning while my husband was working, I swung by the pop-up they currently have set up in Holt Renfrew because that was a lot closer of a walk than their boutique! 🤣
Lunch at an amazing tapas restaurant along the Inner Harbor in Baltimore. So GOOOOOOOD!
