New hakka resto in Cgy to open

  • 6

...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.

  1. Really! If you try it can you tell us how it was? My mom is Hakka, but I've never tried the food (as far as I know), and I'm curious.

    1. 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....

          JG just said that they were hoping to open soon, no date.

      2. I talked too the owner of Karma a very friendly fellow and he said they were opening Nov.7 and that they had 4 hakka style dishes. The restaurant looks amazing on the inside can't wait to try the food. Karma Fine Indian Cuisine

        1. 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....
