Being morning hosts on one of Calgary's most popular radio stations means getting up pretty early in the morning, but the perks are aplenty. The restaurant world is their oyster come lunch time, dinner time and when Friday rolls around. Just like the rest of us, Christy Farrell and Fraser Tuff look forward to a Saturday and Sunday full of brunching, lunching, dinner-ing and drinking.
Here's where Farrell and Tuff of 101.5 KooL FM eat and drink around their beloved city of Calgary.
FT: I love Red's on 4th Street. They have great staff and it's just good vibes all around.
CF: The Belmont Diner is a favourite of mine. I've been going there forever. You'll find me there on a Saturday morning have a big breakfast and a Caesar or two.
CF: Motoburrito in Turner Valley! My friends own this awesome food truck and it is amazing. Try the Dirty Sanchez or the breakfast poutine. You will not be disappointed.
FT: Keith's Deli is a great spot for a quick lunch. Best deli sandwiches in town and, don't forget, it's cash-only.
FT: Volos Pizza is the stuff that dreams are made of!
CF: Fras' introduced me to this delectable pizza joint a while back. I especially love the big bike driver when you order delivery to your house! My other favourite is Nho Saigon in Marda Loop. I'll eat their chicken pho and the pizza in the same night!
CF and FT (insisted in unison): The Ship and Anchor is all about good drinks, awesome daily specials and a patio tht you could spend days on. The staff here are also delightful!
