Texan moving to Calgary or Where are my tortillas?

atxguy04 | Aug 7, 2008 08:20 AM

Hi Chow People! Well, I am marying a wonderful Canadian lady next week and will be making the long move from Austin, TX to Calgary, AB. We will be living in SE Calgary, just off of 17 Ave SE. Being a foodie in training, I am rather excited about the dining options in that area. Perusing some of the posts out there, I see that there might actually be some decent tacos al pastor in the neighborhood which makes me very happy. However, I know I will not be able to find my beloved breakfast tacos, so I will have to do those at home. The question is, is there any grocery or bakery in the area that makes tortillas? I can learn to make my own, but if someone else makes them, that will be even better.

A couple of other non-tortilla related questions:

1. Any advice on meat markets/butcher shops in the area?
2. Any thoughts on pizza? There is a place right next to the Screech and Schooner that looks interesting, as does the Screech itself....

Any other advice, recommendations, suggestions of great places would be most appreciated.
