Passion for perogies in Calgary

Passion for perogies in Calgary

Perogies are a popular choice for brunch and late-night pig-outs. Though The Big Cheese is open all day, late-night revellers on 17th Avenue Southwest flock to get their carb fill at home time. A “snack” of post-marathon proportion, the eatery’s perogy poutine features all the usual delicious poutine components (fries, sauce, cheese curds) plus a pile of perogies, sour cream, caramelized onions and double-smoked bacon.

Best known as the late-night destination for gut-busting poutine dishes, the Big Cheese features a graffiti-painted outdoor patio that’s known to few. A warm-weather seating area at the back of the restaurant, it is shaded by trees and features wall-to-wall graffiti murals by local artists Jesse Gouchey and Aerisolic. The far side of the patio also features a big portrait of the late Brooklyn rapper Notorious B.I.G. Restaurant patrons can pay tribute by chowing down on a massive, pork-loaded Notorious P.I.G. poutine.

For all the salt, fat, starch and tummy-rubbing deliciousness you require after an evening of clubbing and pubbing, The Big Cheese is just the thing. Enjoy its take on the French Canadian French fry dish smothered in cheese curds and gravy and with toppings from Montreal smoked meat to Scottish curry. Monday to Wednesday until 9 pm; Thursday until 11 pm; Friday and Saturday until 3:30 am; Sunday until 9 pm.
