5 Things We’re Excited to Eat This March

A clay pot rice bowl, French toast, charcuterie boards and more are on our radar this month. All are available for takeout or delivery.

Kung Pao Noodle Bowl from Bitter Sisters Brewing Co.

Bitter Sisters Brewing Co. has delicious craft beer, but they also do great food. The Kung Pao Noodle Bowl is a favourite menu item. It features skinny noodles with red peppers, cabbage, cilantro, carrots, peanuts and lime topped with Asian dressing and a five-spice rubbed six-ounce Alberta beef tenderloin. It’s available for dine-in or takeout.

Two-Topping Clay Pot Rice Bowl from Clay Pot Rice

Since we’re no longer used to human interaction, a visit to Clay Pot Rice may be just the thing to ease yourself back into the world. At this restaurant, which opened last fall, a robot will greet you and bring your food to the table (though a human server takes your order). Try the two-topping clay rice bowl that comes with rice, corn, broccoli, tofu and braised egg. Your choice of toppings include Cantonese sausage, cured pork belly, black bean spare ribs and more. It’s available for dine-in or takeout.

Charcuterie and Cheese Board from Empire Provisions

When it’s one year into the pandemic and you just don’t know what to cook anymore, you can’t go wrong with charcuterie. Empire Provisions creates stunning small- (four to six people) and medium- (eight to 14 people) sized charcuterie and cheese boards complete with artisan cheeses, condiments, pickles and dried fruit. It’s available for pickup or delivery and you can even add a bottle of wine to your order.

French Toast from Penny Black Bar & Kitchen

The Bull & Finch has been a popular hangout in southeast Calgary for more than 20 years. Last summer, it got a design upgrade and a new name — Penny Black Bar & Kitchen. If you still haven’t checked out the new digs, go for brunch and order the French toast with maple bourbon butter sauce and served with bacon on the side for just $9.

Celebrate Pi Day (honouring the mathematical constant pi, aka 3.14) on March 14 with a steamy homemade chicken pot pie from Pies Plus. It’s open to sit down for a slice or you can take a frozen one home to bake yourself. All the meat pies come in individual or family size and in addition to chicken, you can also get beef, steak and kidney, or shepherd’s pie.
