Calgary - what happened to the little Vietnamese restaurant next to the Uptown Theater on 8th Av downtown?
I believe it was called 'Touch of Ginger' or something like that.
I stopped by the other week to get my fix of lemongrass chicken, only to find out that they are closed and dark!!!??? Does anyone know? I am hoping they relocated and just forgot to put up a sign.
One of my favorite lunch places... :(
I tried a search on the board, but couldn't come up with much...
It was only ever a tiny family business that was open ever more constricted hours and they closed a few months ago. I think it just ran out of steam- I gave up on them when they would only open 11-1 weekdays, no way for me to make it there. It's too bad- they were in the old Eaton Centre food court until maybe 2001 and I used to pick up dinner there on the way home when I lived downtown 2-3x per week. I thought with a storefront they'd be open more hours but like I say they just cut further and further back.
Now it's back to Thi Thi which is just not the same as the Chinatown location and when it's not busy the chick pea.
