Lunch at Bite Groceteria (YYC): Very Tasty and a Very Good Deal

Bite Groceteria moved a month or so ago to new, bigger digs (1023 9th Ave. SE), and one of the new things they now offer is lunch, at the back of their new space. It's cafeteria-style, with a changing menu of about 3-4 mains (fish, pasta, meat) and a bunch of sides. There's lot of tables you can sit at, and they're very good at clearing your dishes as you finish with them. I just went today and left thinking it was both very tasty and a Very Good Deal, something I do not often have occasion to think in Calgary.
I ordered pork shoulder main, 2 sides (veg medley and scalloped potatoes) and a salad (you could also order a soup instead). For $13.50, inclusive. The pork was a tiny bit dry but with a lovely smokey flavor, and the potatoes were top-notch. They prepare your salad to order: you can see the options and you just tell the salad guy what you want in it. My companion ordered the Wagyu burger, which came with one side (he got fries), for $13.50. He said it was a great burger.

It seems as if it's all homemade (from the salad dressings to the desserts). And it flips from a Very Good Deal to utter fabulousness if you happen to have one of the coupons they've been offering on various deal sites lately. We did. I feel great: full, happy stomach and almost-full wallet.
