This new downtown destination for tapas, desserts and cocktails offers one particularly special dessert: mille crepe cakes by Lady M Cakes. This is the only restaurant in the country serving this treat, which is available by the slice or in nine-inch cakes. The next time you’re craving something sweet, you can swing by to try them in one of eight flavours: signature, green tea, passion fruit, pistachio, tiramisu, Amedei chocolate, jasmine calamansi and purple yam.

This Pakistani restaurant offers a mix of chicken, beef, cheese and sweet naan creations that promise to fill you up. The beef fry kabab naan features butter fried, smoky minced beef, caramelized onions and Pakistani masalas in between pillowy naan dough. Dip it in raita, a spiced, yogurt-based dip.

Personal Best Beer from Eighty-Eight Brewing Co.

Eighty-Eight Brewing Co. is inspired by Calgary’s 1988 Olympics, so it’s not surprising that the brewery is supporting Canadian athletes working their way towards the Paris Olympics and Paralympics in 2024. The brewery recently launched a beer called Personal Best, a small hazy IPA whose proceeds will help three athletes: Nikola Gončin, Alison Jackson and Kasia Gruchalla-Wesierski. Try it on your next visit to the taproom.

This new coffee shop offers a creative twist on croissants. When you order a croongee, you get a flattened, crispy croissant with toppings like ice cream, caramel or candy. Pair one with a hazelnut cloud coffee and a macaron or two.

Plant-Based Longga Burger from Nan’s Noodle House

Nan’s Noodle House has an eye-catching feature burger that you can try in November. The burger’s purple appearance is thanks to an ube pandesal bun, which is filled with a longganisa patty, slaw and banana ketchup aioli. The fact that the plant-based burger comes with a side of sweet potato fries as well makes this a great lunch or dinner option this month.
