Clive Burger

This is a burger joint I can eat at. Hormone and antibiotic free beef. Looks promising and I wonder if it lives up to the hype? The burger was average, and far better than the dried out Alley Burger that I waited an hour for. (This one came in 15 minutes). The toppings were fresh and free, I added fried onions and mushrooms. Tasty burger, but Dairy Lane’s burgers are juicier. Fries were crisp and thick, only problem was that they were heavy on the salt. I had the vanilla milkshake, that was really good. We only ordered one order of fries; it’s big enough for two. They had extra so they gave us another one for free. Nice gesture, but we saved them for later.  Oh, and the artwork is kind of neat. Will come by again if I’m in the area.

I’ve tried this place a few times and clearly keep on coming back. They have a hearty bean, lentil and wild rice salad. Their sandwiches and paninis are really good.  They use quality local and organic ingredients. Their homemade cookies are big enough to share and delish.  They carry Phil and Sebastian’s coffee which would make it the best coffee on campus. Nice healthy and affordable options at the UofC, for a change.

It’s sponsored by the Canadian Sport Centre Calgary, whose dietians and chefs design the menu. Great idea!

This week's CSA delivery

I decided to try something new this summer.  I signed up for a CSA (community supported agriculture) share.  This week I got: flowers, sorrel, mixed salad greens, swiss chard, potatoes, green onions and garlic scapes. Had a nice salad for dinner.
