The Himalayan Himalayan Lamb

If you’ve never tried Himalayan cuisine, then you’re really in for a treat here. If Indian and Thai cuisine had a love child, this tender lamb in creamy tomato and cashew sauce would likely be it.

Khao San Thai Kitchen Tom Kha Soup

Nothing cures shivers on 17th Avenue S.W. faster than a bowl of this coconut-based soup. The scent of fresh galangal and lemongrass warm your nose before the first spoonful even hits your lips.

King’s Wonton Original Wor Wonton

Western Chinese comfort food at its best. Order a bowl of this soup at King’s and end up with a rich broth broth loaded to the brim with wontons, noodles and vegetables.

Laurier Lounge Boullaibaisse

Enjoy hot lobster bisque with saffron rouille, scallops, mussels, prawns and sea bass in this cozy, century old house-turned-restaurant just off of 12th Avenue and 7th Street S.W.

Moti Mahal Chicken Korma

The sweet combination of almond, raisins, cardamom and cream mixed with tender chicken over will calm your chills whether you’re devouring this in the restaurant or, as take-out, in the comfort of your own home.

Safari Grill Goat Karai Masala

This dish of slow-cooked goat overtop warm rice topped with an Indo-African sauce (and chapati on the side, of course) is the kind of spice experience you just can’t find in downtown Calgary. Hence, it is most definitely worth the drive.
