Well with Valentine's Day coming up shortly I thought I'd give you all the heads up (well those age 20-35) about an event hosted by Vegans and Vegetarians of Alberta.  "Meet Your Meatless Mate" is scheduled for February 9th!  Act quickly - registration closes February 4th! Register for it at or directly through Noorish Cafe. You are able to pay for your enrollment online. You must pre-register to participate. It's a good opportunity to check out not only the local singles scene but also the Noorish Cafe  as that is the meet up location for this event. Drinks, tasty treats and conversation - $20.

And for the rest of us that don't fall into the above age range well how about we just go check it out whenever!  Open every day except for Mondays. I love their full name - says it all:  Noorish Conscious Eatery and Superfood Elixir Bar ( 8440 - 109th Street). They  offer a whole lot more than just wholesome food:  Cafe - Retail - Teaching Kitchen - Yoga  -Meditation.  Do check out their website - there is too much to list here.

Handmade Vegan Chocolates by:  The Chocolate Doctors

If you're looking for vegan peanut butter cups (and who isn't?) check out The Chocolate Doctors. I adore peanut butter anything!  Of course - I'm always willing to experiment - especially if it involves chocolate. Take a look at this special chocolate that they are offering for Valentine's Day - sounds divine!

"Try our new Mayan Spice Chocolate just in time for Valentine’s Day. It's filled with a chocolately caramel-like filling with a hint of cinnamon and cayenne."

You can find them at the Alberta Avenue Farmer's Market on Thursday nights from 5-8 p.m.  And if you really need another reason to visit Noorish Cafe this clinches the deal!  Apparently they do stock their chocolates there as well -- got the following little tweet from their website:
"Making chocolate all day today! Stocking up the fridge at Noorish with all 3 box sizes!"
They are also willing to cold ship to several major cities in Canada:
Vancouver, Kamloops, Calgary, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Montreal, and Toronto.


  1. I like their name as well. And it donned on me that "Noorish" sounds like "nourish". Clever!

  2. Now that you mention it - indeed! Very clever. We should plan a day to visit Raising Spaces and pop by here - especially since I just noticed that The Chocolate Doctors provide some of their fabulous treats to the Noorish Cafe! Sounds like a perfect date to me!
