Foodie Friday – Veggie Burger

I love veggie burgers and I am always looking for the best one and new ones to try. I thought coming to live out here it would be hard to come by but I have been pleasantly surprised. I have been introduced to the Impossible Burger (check out my other blog post for more info) and the Beyond Burger. These are by far the best veggie burgers that I have ever tasted and I would highly recommend them. I also try my best to go vegan when I can so the fact that the Red Robin veggie burger can be made into a vegan burger was real highlight.

Little Greek – Falafel and Hummus

I’m usually all about eating out at Italian restaurants or finding the best place for fish & chips so it was nice to try something different for a change. I won’t take full credit for it though as it was my husband. We’ve been passed Little Greek a few times when we been shopping at The Loop so we thought we would give it a try. It’s a quint little place with a very simple but tasty sounding menu. The highlight for us was that they had dishes for vegetarians and vegans and plenty to choose from. We decided on the Hummus and Grilled Pita, Falafel Pita and Baklava. The Falafel was a particular favourite as it wasn’t too spicy but it was full of flavour.

Tip: they put Parmesan on the Grilled Pita so if you’re vegan make sure to ask for it without as it doesn’t state it on the menu.

Olive Garden – unlimited breadsticks and salad

It’s time for our favourite cuisine…Italian food! Who doesn’t love pasta, pizza, salad, and bread? Now, you can get Italian food at lots of all you eats and other Italian style restaurants, but in our opinion Olive Garden is without doubt the best. It’s been our favourite for years and we always recommend it to guests.

We decided to go on a Thursday and call it ‘date night’, so we got a little dressed up and headed to the Olive Garden on the 192. We have been to this one once before, but we usually go to the one at The Loop. If you’re looking for a quieter restaurant atmosphere, then the one on the 192 is for you (this is our experience from two times, on Saturday I can imagine it would be very busy). The menu always comes with different specials and deals and the current one is buy any entree and get one to take away for $5. Yes, you read that right: $5 and we’re not talking some small portion, it’s restaurant portions! So we ordered our drinks and entrees; I was good and ordered a peach tea and Shaun ordered a beer (of course!). We would usually order an appetiser, but we knew that we wanted to load up on breadsticks and salad. From past experience, the Parmesan Zucchini Bites are a game changer!
