Food Notes for March 27, 2023



  • I was so sad to learn that A Bite of Brazil is permanently closing. It was a favourite stop of ours for their addictive cheese bread. Their last day is March 29, 2023.
  • Violet Chocolate Company also announced their closure. They do not yet have a set date. They launched a Nostalgia Collection featuring their favourite flavours.

What I Ate

We took our annual staycation at Prairie Creek Inn last week, so I took a week off from the blog.

  • Before we left, we took advantage of several Downtown Dining Week deals. Mack and I stole away for lunch at Continental Treat. It was our first time at the restaurant, and the special enabled us to try their famous dill pickle soup. It is definitely worth a try, alongside their excellent potato salad.

  • We also ordered take-out from BaoBao, Dagu, and Tiffin – given my parents are still avoiding dining indoors, it was great for these restaurants to honour the deals for take-away.

  • As noted above, we were big fans of A Bite of Brazil’s cheese bread. While the bread will still be available at Pampa, it really isn’t the same as being able to grab some warm bread to enjoy alongside some coffee. We made sure to stock up.

  • Breakfasts at Prairie Creek are always epic, as Emily can attest. We enjoyed feasting on hot breakfasts every morning during our stay.
