My Pizza

In this week’s topic we explored restaurants that we found and enjoy. I would like to talk about a couple of my favorites with you as well. Maybe you’ve been there…pizza

If you’ve been keeping up with this blog you know that I am in no position to be hippity hopping between restaurants right now. I am getting better though……But if I was to eat something right now that I really really loved it would be MY PIZZA in Nanton, Alberta (they’re old school, there is no website, just a phone #). How dare they not have a website.

It is comparable to the Lethbridge franchise TOP’S PIZZA. Same locally owned situation, family ran atmosphere and characteristically, the same type of pie. It’s amazing. If you are ever driving from Calgary to Lethbridge, get the number and phone once you leave Calgary’s city limits……It’ll be worth it.

And by no means is it related to the newfound My Pizza franchise thats popped up in the United States. They probably found out about this guy and stole his ingredients – or his super awesome pizza style!

Who knows what people have done to my food in the past, but not at Mongolie – they’d have to taint the buffet containers.

The restaurant in Lethbridge is never busy and I love that about the place (the owners might not like that though). The only gripe I hear from people is that it’s expensive – DONT PUT SO MUCH ON YOUR PLATE!!! Just cause those things are full of food doesn’t mean you have to shovel it into your bowl……

Such is life, indulge in excess. I might actually chance my sensitive belly with some Mongolie soon. Who knows….

Either way, it’s time for me to go eat something. Kids, be safe this weekend, and remember to eat food that you love because you can. See ya next time.

Obamalicious!

Rajdoot is the Obama of Indian food restaurants in Calgary. obamaI don’t know if the newly elected president has even eaten at Rajdoot, but if he ever does I bet he would say that the food is Obamalicious and that the service is Baracktastic!

I Obomapoligize for all the Barackisms, but how can i write a post the day after the first African American President is elected without making some reference to him?

That being said, It’s not that far fetched to imagine Obama visiting Rajdoot because the restaurant is frequently visited by many movie-stars such as, Anthony Hopkins. anthony_hopkins1501

But don’t worry average Joe the Plumbers like you and I can also dine and receive the same great service as Obama or Anthony Hopkins would.

I was first introduced to Rajdoot when my brother treated my family to the best indian food I had ever had. My bro had just got back from India and said that the food at Rajdoot tasted just like the food he had in India.

Well he was right. You know your Indian food is good when you have one bite and you start to sweat! Part of the reason the food tastes so good at this restaurant is because they cook the food in authentic clay ovens. The servers at Rajdoot are friendly and attentive and they don’t hesitate to bring you lots of foreign beer to go along with your meal! beer

Rajdoot is very accommodating for large parties because the restaurant has a separate room which can be booked through their website.

In addition to the menu, customers can order off the large buffet which contains a variety of delicious vegetarian dishes.

All in all I give Rajdoot a strong Obama win over McCain! ( Read as 5/5)

Well I can’t wait to go back to Calgary next week and chow down with my family at Rajdoot! Maybe Obama will be there and i can get his autograph!
