The Coup Restaurant


Yesterday I met up with one of my best friends back
 home who happened to be in Calgary this week visiting


Lounge, a popular vegetarian eatery on 17th Ave


The menu: Small Bites and Appetizers


Salads


The Coup is dedicated to providing customers with quality organic and 
local food, all made from scratch. They compost, minimally use recycled 
paper products, and features plenty of gluten-free and/or vegan options


We decided to share a couple dishes that our lovely waitress suggested for us


Starting with their full-sized Organic Rainbow Greens Salad


Shredded carrots, beets, pea shoots, rainbow greens 
and seeds with a light Tomato, Leek & Herb Dressing


It was so refreshing and crisp


After tasting a couple different organic wines from their menu we 
decided to order a glass of our favourites; Forbidden Fruit Pearsuasion
 Dry White Wine for my friend and Castelmaure Red Wine for myself


Our shared entree was the Dragon Bowl with a Green Curry and Coconut Sauce


Steamed and fresh seasonal veggies with stir-fried tofu on quinoa, 
topped with cilantro, seeds/nuts, with a Green Curry and Coconut Sauce


And after our incredibly scrumptious and healthy dinner, we
 headed to the mall to take silly photo booth pictures together

Some of those menu items look kinda awesome - I totally want to try and Pseudo Sushi and the Beetnuts! Maybe I'll find myself in Cowtown one day and we can go :)
