Calgary’s Foodies: Our Favourite Restaurant Dishes

Ever wonder what chefs, restaurant owners and food bloggers order at restaurants? Here’s a list of some of their favourite dishes.

“Falafel quesadilla (The Coup), chicken wings (Anju) and the The Hutch (Without Papers Pizza).” – Aman Adatia, chef and co-owner, the Naaco Truck

“I can’t get enough of the beef brisket in Chinatown. It’s always super moist and makes for a perfect cheap, casual weeknight meal. You can get it at most places; I usually hit up Happy Valley.” – Stephanie Eddy, blogger,

“Right now, I really like the roasted broccoli dish at Una and the fried tofu at Anju.” – Kyle Groves, executive chef, Catch

“The only real standout I can think of recently are the parfaits that I had at Model Milk with layers of really beautiful silky custard, raspberries and basil. There was also a tomato salad with a waffle base which was pretty delicous.” – Jan Hrabec, executive chef and owner Crazyweed

“The fried tofu at Anju and the foie gras parfait at Blink.” – John Michael Macneil, executive chef, Teatro

“It’s like picking a favourite child – too hard.” – Sebastian Sztabzyb, co-owner, Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters

“Pig, Model Milk Bistro. Pig wrapped in pig wrapped in pig. Wicked!” – Jesse Willis, co-owner and general manager, Vine Arts Wine and Spirits; wine director, Taste and Mango Shiva
