Red Lobster

Posted on Apr 21, 2013 in Restaurants | 0 comments

My husband and I agreed that Red Lobster looks like a good place when we are hungry for seafood, we thought by watching their commercial on TV. It’s one of the biggest seafood chains in the US. The big portions are very American with very little veggies or none at all on the menu, I thought. But actually it wasn’t like that so much so when we visited there. When ordering entrees for dinner, it came with a caesar salad or a house salad. That was nice.

The first time we went to one of the two brunches in Edmonton was about 2 months ago. I wasn’t expecting going out for dinner, but we took too long for shopping at WEM, so we went there for a quick dinner. At that time, my hubby ordered the Ultimate Feast ($29.99) which is a great plate with crab legs, shrimp, lobster and etc. I ordered 2 appetizers, which were New England Clam Chowder (bowl $6.5) and Seafood Sampler (about $13). The sampler was a good deal. Hubby’s entree came with a salad, and also each table gets some biscuits (quite salty in my opinion). I got really full and satisfied.

This day (Apr 12), we printed out a coupon and brought it with us: $10 discount for 2 entrees of Lobster Fest menu items.

We both ordered the same one: Bar Harbor Lobster Bake ($30.99)

It was great! This linguini pasta looks too heavy and it was! Salt and butter. So many calories, I imagined. But it was good… I brought home my left-over.

We liked it, but maybe once in a while is good enough for us.

Surprised to find a brunch in Japan as well! (found it on Wiki)

Louisiana Purchase

Posted on Apr 21, 2013 in Restaurants | 0 comments

My friends and I met at Louisiana Purchase for lunch on April 10th. A long stay (11am to after 2pm)! We were the first ones to enter and probably the last ones to leave… As always, we were surprised at how fast the time had passed.
Ms. M recommended this restaurant and we liked it a lot.

The lunch of the day was a fish dish. So I ordered that one. It had a long name, but in short it was tilapia with crayfish. The tilapia was coated with bread crumbs and was deep-fried. It looked like it had very high calories, but no problem. I was hungry. It hit the spot! The sauce was very nice, so were the veggies and rice.

Tilapia with Crayfish (about $16)

Louisiana Jambalaya $13.95 (Lunch) / $15.95 (Dinner)


Grilled Crab Cakes $15.95 (Lunch) / $21.95 (Dinner)

Cheesecake $7.50


I had a taste of both the jambalaya and crab cake, and they were good, too. Jambalaya is a featured dish and it has some shrimp in it, so I thought I wanted to try it next time, but it also has chicken, ham and sausage in the rice. Too bad.
The cheesecake was beautiful with fruits and the heavy cream was also good!
