Lunch at Crazyweed

It was a bittersweet company lunch last Friday. We were all gathered to bid a fond farewell to our talented Art Director, Armando, who was moving to Vancouver (the bitter). But the whole dining experience at Crazyweed Kitchen was delightful (the sweet).

The clean open kitchen was the focal point of our table, while large windows afforded great mountain views and decorative racks of wine had us wishing it wasn’t a business lunch. The food garnered rave reviews all around. The distinctive Alberta beef burger with bacon jam, cherry tomato salsa, arugula, pecorino and aged goat cheddar was “nice and messy,” according to Armando.

Jack thought the confit duck sandwich on house made focaccia was “a steal of a deal.” The chicken pot pie had a flaky buttery top that was complemented by tender meat, fresh vegetables, mushrooms and truffles in perfectly seasoned gravy.

A lovely fusion dish, the Vietnamese pork meatball sandwich consisted of melt-in-your-mouth slightly spicy meatballs topped with creamy Asian slaw on fresh crusty bread (best Vietnamese sub ever!).

Their house made ketchup with seasoned fries was a hit (even with those of us who usually eschew the traditional fry dip) and their homemade iced tea wasn’t bitter nor sweet, unlike our farewell lunch. We’ll miss you, Armando.
