Sometimes a little bit of grease can really hit the spot. Here are 10 tasty dishes that we don’t necessarily condone eating all of the time, but once in a while they are a treat to enjoy.

Beer Revolution Pizza Spring Rolls

Pepperoni, gooey mozzarella, green peppers and mushrooms wrapped up in a spring roll, fried and served with marinara sauce. What’s not to love? (1080 8 St. S.W., 403-264-2739, beerrevolution.ca, @revolutionyyc)

Below Deck Fried Pepperoni

It’s exactly like it sounds – meaty, crispy, golden-battered goodness to go with your cold pint of beer. (221 8 Ave. S.W., 403-452-3832, belowdeck.ca, @belowdecktavern)

Chicken On The Way Corn Fritters

The fried chicken here always hits the spot after a night on the town, but don’t forget a side order of sweet, doughy fritters with some honey for dipping. (1442 Kensington Rd. N.W., 403-283-5545, chickenonthewaycalgary.ca)

CRAFT Beer Market Fast Food Sushi

A beef burger with all the regular cheeseburger fixings is rolled up with bacon, sliced and served la sushi format with barbecue sauce and jalapeno cream cheese. (345 10 Ave. S.W., 403-514-2337, craftbeermarket.ca, @craftbeermarket)

Diner Deluxe Mac ‘n’ Cheese Grilled Cheese

Ask for a sneak peek at the Diner’s “secret menu” to gets your hands on this rich sandwich. Bubbly mac ‘n’ cheese sandwiched between rosemary sourdough. (804 Edmonton Tr. N.E., 403-276-5499, dinerdeluxe.com, @diner_deluxe)

Inglewood Pizza Pulled Pork Pizza

Skip the thin crust fancy pizza and keep things messy with an old school pie topped with tons of pulled pork, barbecue sauce, red peppers and cheese. (1225 9 Ave. S.E., 403-237-8220, inglewoodpizza.ca)

Naina’s Kitchen Stuffed Burger

You can choose from an array of fillings for your half-pound burger here, but the combination of jalapeno and cheddar stuffed in the quality homemade patty is my personal favourite. (2808 Ogden Rd. S.E., 403-263-6355, nainaskitchen.com, @nainaskitchen)

The Pig and Duke Deep-fried Frog’s Legs

They may only appear on Wednesday nights in this Beltline pub, but frog’s legs, fried chicken wing-style and tossed in any number of sauces, is something everyone needs to experience at least once. (1312 12 Ave. S.W., 403-245-8487, pigandduke.com, @pigandduke)

Purple Perk Cafe Ginger Cream Cookie

If you’re looking for a sugar rush with your morning coffee, then this combination of huge, chewy ginger cookies fused together with a generous layer of buttercream icing is exactly what you need. (2212 4 St. S.W., 403-244-1300, purpleperk.com)

Tubby Dog Sherm’s Ultimate Gripper

Definitely not for the faint of appetite, this bacon-wrapped – and fried – hotdog is topped with chili, mustard, sliced ham, a fried egg and more. A so-bad-but-so-good mouthful, to say the least. (1022 17 Ave. S.W., 403-244-0694, tubbydog.com, @tubbydoghotdogs)
