5 Things We’re Excited to Eat and Drink This November

Pancakes, coconut daiquiris and Thai curry are on our radar this month.

‘Tis the season for carbs! The Thanksgiving turkey sweats and Halloween sugar highs may be behind us, but we’re getting closer to the holiday season (aka the season of eating). Luckily, there are tried and true brunch spots, new pizza joints and hot bowls of curry to tend to our cravings.


Here are five things we’re excited to eat and drink this month

This New York-style pizzeria opened this summer in a strip mall in Calgary’s Highwood neighbourhood. This laid-back joint serves up big, thin-crust pizza (whole pies or by the slice), pasta, salad and soft-serve ice cream. The Bougie Pig Pizza with sweet onion, arugula, proscuitto, pecorino romano and San Marzano tomato sauce looks extra-delicious.

Cravings Market Restaurant in the southeast neighbourhood of Fairview is a great spot for a weekend date-night. Every Friday night, the restaurant features a different kind of meat, cut and cooking-style at its Carvery Night Experience. There’s also live music from local artists. Be sure to make a reservation online.

OEB Breakfast Co. just marked the 10-year anniversary of its first restaurant in Calgary. So what better way to celebrate than to go for pancakes at one of its three Calgary locations. Or, even better — bring some loved ones and share a few more dishes for the table, like the Eggs Benny Florentine with brown butter hollandaise and The Soul in a Bowl breakfast poutine.

If you’re still in denial that winter is coming, there’s always Ricardo’s Hideaway to escape to for tiki drinks and tropical vibes. Order the coconut daiquiri with coconut rum, white rum, citric acid and sugar paired with an order of jerk chicken with Barbadian rice.

Late fall is the best time to seek out hot soups and curries. And if you haven’t eaten at White Elephant Thai Cuisine, you should. The expansive menu has five curries to choose from. We recommend the Matsaman Curry with red chilli, coconut milk, potatoes, ginger and your choice of tofu, chicken, beef, pork or shrimp.
