YYC South Centre area lunch spots

For the first time in 10 years after moving to NW Calgary I am headed to South Centre this weekend. I am looking for a non-chain lunch spot in the vicinity (preferably south of Heritage Drive) - ethnic food suggestions welcome. Tu Tierra is the one place I have been in the area so I would love a different suggestion. Any hidden gems around there?

Tu Tierra Restaurant
8316 Fairmount Dr SE #30, Calgary, AB T2H 0Y8, CA

  1. Sushi Ginza – Willow Park Shopping Centre just north of Southcentre. Fresh fish and some good rolls.
    Crave’s Cupcakes – Willow Park Shopping Centre, obviously not lunch but a snack.
    Pies Plus – does soup, sandwiches, quiche as well as pies, CASH ONLY,(really!!!) Avenida Centre just south of Southcentre.
    Mina’s for pho – not bad pho, busy place – Avenida Centre near Original Joe's

    While not restaurants, Springbank Cheese Co. and Northsea Fish Market are also in Willow Park. beside the large Willow Park Liquor Store.

    1. Pies Plus was decent and we thought Kefi pretty good.

      1. Not ethnic but a little different at any rate. If you're heading all that way take about 15 min and head over to The Ranche at Fish Creek Park. A bit of a splurge but worth it especially before/after dealing with the Christmas shopping crowds.
