This year it’s time to branch out and try some new restaurants in town. Others that are just moving to town will need to know what new hot spots have just opened up or become what everyone’s talking about. This year’s list of dishes, drinks and ingredients that you have to try include local spots like the Bro’ne with their Peanut Butter Brownies and the cowboy sausages from Master Meats.
Since Calgary is a food town and the local food scene is start to get recognized around the world, it’s no wonder local bakers, butchers and gin makers are pulling out all the stops. Here are some classics and new flavours to try this year.
Wilde Grainz Lemon Tart
Enjoy a delicious high-sided lemon tart from Wilde Grainz for a mixture of sweet and tart. They top it with a whirl of torched meringue and it looks so amazing. Bite into the bright white and yellow treat served for two to four people and take it to your next dinner party.
You got to love good, fresh, authentic guacamole. It’s usually hard to find but Chongo’s in Crossroads Market is serving of the freshest guacamole for you to enjoy now. Pick up some of their fresh salsas and then grab a scoop of the popular creamy-chunky green guac.
