Where to buy Black Garlic?

Anyone know where to purchase some Black Garlic in Calgary? I heard that the Bite store in Inglewood carries some, just wanted to see if there was anywhere else.

Calgary Fish and Chips?

I really liked the fish and chips at the Catch, and for the Catch i thought they were definetly reasonably priced. Catch always has good fresh seafood.

Calgary - Chinese Dumplings

I agree the only "close to shanghai food" in Calgary that i have come across is Peking Garden in the NW, but even then it doesn't compare to actual shanghai dumplings and food from Vancouver or Hong Kong, kinda sad because Shanghai food is very tasty.

If you ever go to Richmond/Vancouver, go and check out the various Shanghai restaurants in Richmond.

Good "real" Chinese food in NE Calgary.

yes, I tried TPot last week, i think it just opened, and the lunchtime wait for dimsum at 12 pm was brutal (probably because of the fact it just opened). The food was good, the dim sum here is the one where you order off a card and there are no dim sum carts going around.

I can't remember if there is any english on the cards. I thought the dim sum was good, the decor inside is definetly nice. I haven't tried a dinner menu or the cafe that is attached, not sure if the cafe is open yet.

Calgary - Chinese Hot Pot

There is some new Hot Pot restaurant chain in Calgary, i believe up in Castleridge or Falconridge, they are a chain of hot pot restaurants from Hong Kong, but i have heard that the prices are high.

My recommendation is go to T&T, buy supplies and do it at home, much cheaper!

Good "real" Chinese food in NE Calgary.

Agreed, forbidden City is a one of the better, and pebble street is a good hong kong style cafe, and very similar food as hong kong!

The owner that owns Forbidden City owns the following restaurants:
Forbidden City
Pebble Street
Misai (Japanese restaurant on 32nd ave)
Calgary Court (Hong kong style cafe in china town)
Sun's BBQ (in the Lambda supermarket on centre street)
TPot (at the new T&T in the NW)

And i understand that they own a few restaurants in Hong Kong, overall i find the food at his various restaurants close to Hong Kong food.
