Longtime Middle Eastern spot Tazza to close after 23 years of operation

Jan 30 2020, 4:51 pm

A longtime Middle Eastern restaurant is closing its doors in Calgary after one final service on January 31.

Tazza Deli & Grill, a Bridgeland staple known for its shawarma and tasty Middle Eastern eats, will officially be shuttering after 23 years.

The team behind the concept shared the news via Instagram this week with a message for all their loyal patrons.

In 1996 Nawaf and Fatima Traya opened Tazza and served their very first Shish Taouk in Bridgeland. Over 23 years- and thousands of Shish Taouks later- Fatima is taking her well-deserved retirement!

The 1105 1 Ave NE Calgary restaurant will be open from 10:30 am to 6:30 pm on January 31.

All proceeds from the final hoorah will go towards the Tom Baker Cancer Centre — be sure to stop by if you can.
