Ramen 🍜 makes me very happy. So it was a great time talking with Koki Aihara, the owner of Shiki Menya which is one of the best ramen spots in Calgary. He discusses what it took to open up the restaurant, the career path he initially set out on, and what he's looking forward to in the future. Plus we discuss hip hop bands, Banff, and collecting cookbooks.
Tony Grimes is a local celebrity, of sorts, in Calgary. If you talk to the right people. He began the networking group Pixels and Pints which has grown to something more than he ever thought it would. The conversation also covers meatpacking plants, the early internet, and clowns.
