While I was away in Kelowna, British Columbia I also visited ABC Country Restaurant. Though we have ABC here in Red Deer I love the food there so I was just fine eating at an ABC while I was away.

Taco salads have long been a favorite of mine. I think I’ve ordered one in every restaurant that I’ve been to where it’s a menu option. It’s true that I am a big fan of Mexican flavours, especially cumin.

I enjoyed everything about this salad, especially the presentation, isn’t it lovely?


When asked if I wanted a salad dressing or sour cream and salsa I chose salsa only. Most salsas run between 20-35 calories for 1/4 cup. Where salad dressings run 60-80 a tablespoon for a regular calorie brand. Being that I wanted a change from the dressings I had brought with me the salsa was a great healthy option.

I did eat a little of the shell, which was spicy and flavorful. I left most of it. I’m pretty sure it was deep fried, whether by the restaurant or it came to them packaged that way. When I touched it my fingers were covered in oil.

One of the things I did while I was away was go to Extra Foods, a grocery store, that was attached in a mall that was attached to the Coast Capri Hotel I was staying at. I bought a rotisserie chicken and a large mediterranean salad. This lasted three meals and was a fraction of the price of ordering the same thing in restaurants. I was fortunate that rooms had a small fridge that I could store food in.
