New hakka resto in Cgy to open
...according to Gilchrist in today's Herald. Place is called Karma, and it's among a surprising range (as he describes it) of eateries at some new power centre (or whatever they call those overgrown strip malls in the burbs- "town centres"?) at 130th Ave and 42nd St SE, which I think puts it near Douglasdale and Mackenzie Town/Lake. The other side of the world for me but I'd want to check out some hakka since I discovered it at Spadina Garden in TO. Also, hakka is similar to how Trinidadians do Chinese...
Also in the centre is a Thi Thi franchise, the first Cora's west of Winnipeg, and a Marble Slab Creamery. Doesn't sound like the typical strip mall.
Karma-one of the best resturants i have ever ate at. The butter chicken dish is to die for, ummmmmmmmmm. I have been waiting a while for this resturant to open and it was worth the wait. Friendly service, and a really great looking resturant. I love the smell of east indian food and when you walk into this place it will make your mouth water. I have tried butter chicken in almost every east indian resturant in calgary and Karma takes home the gold. Great job Karma keep it up....
I think I'm going to try to enlist one of the forumers who lives that way- if there are any!
Deep southers- keep us updated- there is going to be a sushi place there too, so as I say this doesn't look like your typical suburban town centre unless Calgary's southern subdivision have suddenly become way more ethnically diverse than I had realised- the north side, I can see that....
