I ate a lot in May! Well, truth be told, I always eat a lot. Actually, I really need to start working out, but I digress…Here are the restaurants I featured in my Metro Calgary column this past month…
I am glad to announce that this city finally has a quality grab-and-go pizza joint. GAGA Pizzeria opened up a few months ago on the corner of 12th Ave. S.W. and 12th St. S.W. and is dishing out some great Italian-style pizza as well as sandwiches and sweets, all at a great price.
Sadly, I was dateless this lunch hour and wouldn’t be able to tote any leftover pizza with me that day, so I went for the Calzone ($7.99). It was filled with capicola ham, sausage, olives, mushrooms and cheese (of course).
Finally, a delicious burger can be found on 17th Avenue! New grab-and-go joint Clive Burger captures your attention right away with its bright orange chairs and black and white wallpaper. Oh, and the smell of grilled burgers helps too.
After classifying my hunger as ‘moderate-to-high,’ I went with a Double Hamburger with Cheese ($9) and a side of fries ($4). The array of burger toppings available ranged from relish and pickles to sauerkraut and jalapenos. Seeing as I’m mildly ridiculous, I chose all of them.
My burger came out almost as tall of my bag of fries (which you get a ton of, so I recommend sharing an order of fries).
