Visiting Calgary from Toronto

magic | Dec 10, 2008 09:08 AM

I’ll be in Calgary over the holidays and would love some spots for yummy food. Doesn’t have to be fancy. When I visited for the first time 2 years ago my friend took me to the following places listed below. Feel free to make some recs for places based on the kinds of places we visited.

Thumbs up:
Peter's Drive In. I really enjoyed this place.
Tandoori Hut. Pretty darn good.
Tom’s House of Pizza. Loved the spiced pepperoni.
Pies+. Good, but didn’t go nuts for it.
Cheesecake Café. Good, but didn’t go nuts for it. But loved those cookies.
Cactus Club Café
Randy’s. For breakfast…just normal standard breakfast fare but done well I thought.

Mixed review:
Murietta’s: Loved the lamb meatball spaghetti, wouldn’t rush back for anything else.

Disappointed me:
Vintage Chop House

I’ve heard Redwater is good and I would love to find some decent sushi, donairs (which we really don't have much of in Toronto for some reason), bakeries, or good fast food, but any and all recs are welcome. Finally, any good places for some ribs, BBQ, or carnivore delights?
