    Default Restaurants in the dirty SE mega thread

    The SE is a black hole for cuisine. We all know this. BUT, we can make the best of things if we can find some locals doing good things. If you go to a dirty SE Restaurant and like it (or don't), please remember to put at least a thumbs up or down comment here. I need some good local eats.

    (And I don't mean close-to-downtown SE, I mean sit-on-deerfoot commuting SE).

    To get us started:

    Starbelly: Thumps up
    Sushi Itoko: Thums up
    Our very own Riverbend Peking House: Thumbs up


    Has anyone tried Plaka Greek Taverna in Deer Ridge? It gets really good google reviews.

    Okay, just zooming around with google maps revealed a couple I want to try:

    - Chairman's Steakhouse
    - Moroccan Tent in douglasdale
    - Bow Tie Pizza.

    Bow Tie's north location is good, so the south is probably good.
    Sen Vietnamese is worth a try. Woukd love to hear others opinions on it.

    Chairman's is good. Bowtie I'm undecided. It's a good tasting pizza but it's also pretty heavy which makes me dislike it. So nothing against the taste but i prefer thin/lite pizza.

    I'm with you. A Michael's style pizza with stacks of mushy toppings is not my thing.

    I'm a Neapolitan pizza guy

    I’ve done Starbelly twice and was terrible both times. But I see it raved about. Maybe I’m bad luck.

    yeah, they're good. Imma switch to MAx boosts joint though. It's really good too. I preferred Max's chow mein to Forever Good's.

    Is Sen's "standard vietnamese" style? I don't say that in a bad way, as I'm always up for "Calgary Standard" vietnamese. But it looks like from their pictures that they're trying to do something different.

    I'm bad at this.
    Isn't Wellington's in the SE? It's great. Cattle Baron, too.
    Big Sky (answering Killramos) is not (I don't think) even technically in Okotoks. That dude sold Rylie's Cattle Barn (in Okotoks) and built a completely direct competitor to it far enough away to satisfy whatever non-compete clause (not far) and Rylie's was done in minutes. It's good but not life changing. Plus, I don't want to be in a place with H.A. acting like they own the place, ever. My Canadian Tuxedo doesn't include Kevlar.
    I think Big T's would also be called SE and has a couple more life changing menu options than Big Sky. Apparently gluten free options for those who poop-too-much and are convinced it teh glutenz.

    Apologies if I'm getting quadrants wrong, (and) for the excessive (bracket) use (.)

    Wellingtons is great but not sure if it classifies as deep SE. Another great Chinese place is Bills. My favorite in the south.

    I like Big Sky. I didn't know it was an HA hangout, though.

    It's happened and it might be as little as once. I'm not saying it's a hangout.
    I just have zero time for that after walking by that clown house on Ellis in Kelowna so many times or stepping in that blood in front of the Kelowna casino.
    "Motorcycle enthusiasts" can plan their "toy runs" elsewhere, as far as I'm concerned.

    I'm surprised the HAs haven't given up on Harley's yet either. Do people even still buy them? Is their run as cool bikes over? (Please!)

    Still sold over MSRP. Still to fags.
    I'll start a thread in '21 about how to judge how many IQ points a person is above/below average based on appearance and there will be done HD references in there.

    *Check the SouthPark episode before the triggered haterade from the snowflake, equality brigade, please.

    I went there once and a bike club was having a charity event? That’s the only time I have seen bikes there.

    Big T’s hasn’t been good for a long time.

    I think it probably falls into "standard Calgary Viet" style. I mean, it's got a little more design than some of the places, but I think the dishes are the same. You tell me if it's executed better or differently, I'm biased and don't want the foodie mafia to neg-rep. I know the white guy that works there.

    I have not been in years, but Kam Han has been a good treat when I've been in the past. I am thinking of grabbing some takeout from there sometime this week. I want to say it's in Avenida near that piece of shit retaining wall that's clearly falling over but I saw someone trying to fix, recently.
