carne seca in calgary

I found a recipe for fiejoada and it calls for carne seca, a brazilian salt cured beef. Anyone know where I can find this in Calgary or another product that would be a good substitution?

red door bistro verdict

Glad you had an enjoyable experience at Red Door. After many attempts i have decided that that particular spot is no longer on the list. I have been multiple times and each time have had terrible food and service. I've been served dishes that sat under the heatlamp way to long and dried out. I ordered 6 oysters with fresh horseradish and waited over half and hour for them (we were one of 2 tables in the place) and when they arrived they had added the horsradish to the oysters themselves rather than serving it on the side (do they put ketchup on your fries for you too?). Not to mention the ice they were served on had melted by the time they got to the table and so the oysters were swimming in water. The only redeming quality as far as my experience shows is a bartender who felt bad charging me $10 for some scotch (obviously he had no idea what scotch was) and so served me a triple pour!

Looking for a specific pizza in calgary

I used to be a big fan of Van's though recently have been converted by the more steakhouse style pizza's around town which sounds like what you are looking for. I am also a fan of Nicks pizza and would reccomend Eddies Nest as an alternative (though they too are closed for August holidays). Its a take out/delivery only spot on 12 ave SW. They use homemade sauce, good quality toppings and loads of real cheese.
