Calgarians have been travelling from around the city to try Calgary Momo House’s authentic Nepalese cuisine and signature momos. The Nepali dumplings come in vegetarian, mutton, paneer or chicken options and are a must-try dish here. The menu also features dishes like leg of lamb, Himalayan butter chicken and traditional Nepali thali.
White Elephant Thai Cuisine
Located in Vista Heights, White Elephant Thai Cuisine’s flavourful menu is just as mouth-watering every time you visit. Order some curries, stir-fries and noodles to share with a group of friends and wash it all down with a Singha Thai beer.
