Gooey greats: Calgary mac and cheese feasts

From strictly homemade guilty pleasure to gourmet comfort food, mac and cheese has come a long way, baby. These Calgary restaurants are at least partly responsible for the hot-and-gooey elevation of this everyday dish.

Vintage Chophouse and Tavern

320 11 Avenue SW, Calgary, AB T2R 0C5

Lobster is an optional addition to the mac and cheese at Vintage Chophouse, which is served hot and heavenly with cheddar and a hint of white truffle oil. Macaroni and a glass of wine just became a thing.

Boogie's Burgers

1-908 Edmonton Trail NE, Calgary, AB T2E 3K1

Featured on Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here, Boogie’s deep fried mac and cheese burger certainly merits pasta stardom. Lettuce, onion, tomato and cheddar adorn three red-sauced wedges of macaroni barely contained by an extra-wide Boogie’s bun.

Cheezy Bizness

Calgary, AB T2P 2G8

It’s mobile mac and cheese! The Cheezy Bizness food truck takes to the streets spring though fall serving wickedly decadent grilled cheese sandwiches including one filled with mac and cheese. Dubbed mac melts, these rich and delectable hand-held meals are available once per week. Check Facebook for notification.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
