We Calgarians put up with some chilly, snowy days, but quality homemade offerings from local purveyors can warm the cockles of our cold Alberta hearts in no time.

We’re talking loaded poutines with squeaky cheese curds, gooey orders of mac and cheese, heaping plates of pasta, and piping hot bowls of ramen dotted with marinated eggs, seaweed, and corn.

Whether you want to keep it simple with tomato soup or get the crispy fried chicken dish of your dreams, Calgary has it for you, foodies.

Here’s where to get the best comfort food in Calgary.
