Although there are no specific local delicacies, it’s not hard to get a good meal in Calgary. The city is home to some of the finest traditional, ethnic and fusion restaurants in Canada.
The prairies around Calgary are world famous for their cattle and their Western beef is fantastic. Beef is barbequed, braised, grilled, minced and skewered with different complements like mushrooms, onions, rice, green peppers and sauces. Keep a look out for a local stew (diced steak, garden vegetables and biscuits cooked in rich gravy) and beef mincemeat (combines chopped suet, fruits and spices). Desserts feature many wild berries and nuts.
