Finding grits in Edmonton

It was definitely the hominy grits I'm looking for. Are there any grocery stores in Edmonton with a large or decent Mexican food section? I'll have to do so me scouting on my days off.

Finding grits in Edmonton

I'm looking for a store in Edmonton (or Calgary) that sells grits. I bought some in the US on a trip last year and I'm almost out and I haven't been able to find any. Suggestions? Thanks.

Help in Edmonton for a Newbie...

I live in Leduc, so most of the places I got to are on the south side. Some of my favourite restaurants are:

- The Lemograss Cafe (10417 51 Ave) which is a casual Vietnamese place really close to the southside location of the Italian Center Shop. It's a good price, the portions are excellent and the food is always good.

- The Sicilian Pasta Kitchen. The one I went to is southside 805 Saddleback Road (just off 23 Ave). But there's on Jasper Ave too (never been to that one though). Anyways this restaurant has never let me down - always a safe bet.

- Grub Med A Greek Restaurant I'd never heard of until going there a few months back. I ate the most amazing lamb ever there. It's southside too - just off 119 Street North of the Derick Club (exact address is 17 Fairway Drive NW). I love Greek food and this place is fantastic, and not pricey like other restaurants can be.

If you have a vehicle H&W is a good grocery store - that specifically just has produce. There's four locations in Edmonton - with a southside one at 1, 9261 34 Avenue. http://handwproduce.com/index.php

I have to agree with ScottP though - The Italian Center Shop is fantastic and definitely the best deli around.

La Tapa in Edmonton

I'd like to go to a Spanish restaurant in Edmonton for my birthday. But the only one that shows up on online searches is La Tapa. Has anyone been here? Is it any good? Or is there another Spanish restaurant you can recommend in Edmonton? Thanks.
