New Persian Restaurant on Centre St in YYC

I haven't eaten there yet, but I did poke my head in and the manager said they are not related to the Edmonton location. Menu looked good to me and I plan to give it a try next week.

Gazpacho in Calgary

I was just checking out the menu at West and it looks like they have it.

I'm not sure if I'm going to go, but if I do I'll give it a try...

Brand is PG? Looks like you can buy it online.

Anyone been to the Kabob House on Edmonton Trail? (YYC)

I really like it.

Let's be honest it's meat on a stick and I can't remember a kabob I didn't like, so I may not be the best reviewer. The entrees are pretty basic. I always get the same thing, the beef. It comes with some rice and a roasted tomato (my second favorite thing after meat on a stick). I keep meaning to try the chicken or ground beef kabobs, but I'm always drawn back to my usual.

I don't remember much about the decor. It's not large and it feels somewhat intimate. There are two TVs (one always has soccer and the other Iranian TV), but I don't remember the volume being on.

My first impression was that that it felt pretty authentic (maybe Iranian?), but I don't know why. My server (and maybe the cook) looks Chinese (certainly not Iranian), but there are always posters and business cards for middle eastern events around town.

I have their take out menu at home. I'll see if I can scan and post it here (is that allowed?). I think prices were about $10-15, most being around the $10 range. I remember it being a good value, but I'm not very price sensitive.

New Mexican on 17th SE? (Cgy)

I never made it back. It's on my list and I'll let you know as soon as I get a chance.

New Mexican on 17th SE? (Cgy)

I was on International Ave a few weeks ago and saw a new Mexican restaurant. I couldn't stop and I didn't see it when I went back. I think it was just off 36th street? Maybe by the ice cream place? Anyone know anything about this? Was I dreaming? Thanks in advance.

where to find disposable barbecue in Edmonton?

Try Army and Navy, they had them last year.

Mexican food in Calgary

I like Juan's on 8th Ave. It's not spectacular, but it's decent.

Cooking classes? (Calgary)

I have heard good things about the classes at Boca Loca, however I haven't been to one myself. I'm not sure if the website is current.

Good Italian around downtown Calgary?

I really like Prego up on the second floor of Eau Claire, although I have only been there for lunch.

Mexican withdrawal in Calgary

What do you folks think about Juan's? I tend to prefer it to El Sombrero.

Fish Market in Calgary

Thanks Miles!

Fish Market in Calgary

Either would be fine. Filleted would be great, but I am sure I could find something to do with the whole fish.

Does anyone know where I can buy fresh fish (sushi grade) in Calgary? Thanks in advance.
