4. Lamb Souvlaki from Something Else

This family-operated restaurant, curated by Chef Louie Balomenos, is home to the best game in town for Greek cuisine. Their souvlaki, skewered and marinated with fresh herbs, and served on rice with grilled-to-perfection pita, is street food done right.

5. Cup of Americano from Perks Coffee House

A strong cup of joe is essential for a good day and Perks’ – the little shop that could – stands out as a coffee haven in the Tri-Region. It certainly helps the coffee is brewed well and served speedily, giving you more time to fully enjoy your midday break or java rendezvous.

6. Grilled Cheese from Mo Jo Garden Center

In Parkland County, you can find a garden centre that’s able to cater to any of your gardening needs and is also home to a kitchen dishing out some of the coolest food. Their take on grilled cheese is the kind of sandwich meant to be dipped into a cozy soup after a shopping voyage. If you’re feeling adventurous after, we suggest trying a Mojo Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza for size.

7. Mediterranean Chicken from Last Spike Grill

This tasty chicken dish gets a hefty upgrade thanks to the culinary team at the Last Spike Grill, wise enough to cook it in lemon herbs and serve it with tomato, mixed peppers, onions, feta cheese, fresh spinach and homemade salsa. Zesty and irresistible!

8. Butter Chicken from Butter Chicken Hut

Let’s face it – we can’t mention this Indian/Pakistani restaurant and ignore their signature dish. The butter chicken is their staple, a savoury delightful dish; Make sure to peer through their main courses to fall in love with their delectable Palak Paneer, cooked with homemade cottage cheese and topped off with spices.
