5 Things We’re Excited to Eat and Drink in February

This month, we’re looking forward to a doughnut and churro pop-up, plates of spaghetti limone and plenty of hot chocolate creations.

Salted Caramel Chocolate Dirty Chai from Aggüdo Coffee Roasters

February marks the return of YYC Hot Chocolate Fest, which means there will be tons of warm and delicious chocolatey drinks to enjoy this month. If you happen to be in Kensington, head to Aggüdo to try its enticing festival offering: a salted caramel chocolate dirty chai.

Concorde Entertainment Group’s newest restaurant serves plenty of tempting coastal Italian fare, including a selection of small plates, crudo, pizza and pasta. One dish that has caught our eye in particular though is the spaghetti limone, which brings flavours of lemon, parmesan and parsley to one beautiful plate of pasta.

Doughnuts and Churros from Halo Donuts and Churros

This pop-up specializes in Spanish churros and malasada doughnuts that come in fun and unique flavours. With pop-ups at Cluck N Cleaver, D.O.P. and Made by Marcus under its belt already, Halo’s next appearance will be at Pizza Face on January 28 with tiramisu, cannoli and cinnamon sugar doughnuts.

Who says salads can’t be fun? At Layali Cafe, the Beirut Smash salad features a mix of tomato, cucumber, onion, radish, sweet pepper, mint and Lebanese twist cheese. This sounds delicious on its own, but what makes it even more fun is that the salad is tucked inside a shell that guests get to smash before they dig in.
