TRIED AND TRUE

Where Calgary - - DINING -

A small slice of the Ca­nary Is­lands is now nes­tled onto 17th Av­enue SW. Las Ca­narias has made the move from the north­west cor­ner of the city, bring­ing its Span­ish in­gre­di­ents—like the iberico and ser­rano hams, cheese and chorizo—and true tapas menu to the in­ner city.

Nib­ble on pa­pas bravas, mar­i­nated olives or an as­sort­ment of mon­ta­di­tos—slices of bread topped with smoked oys­ters, chorizo, white an­chovies or omelet—while await­ing a siz­zling hot pan of paella made from Va­len­cia rice and speck­led with var­i­ous com­bi­na­tions of seafood, chicken, beef, and chorizo. (Dig down to scrape up the de­li­ciously crispy edges and bot­tom of the dish.)

En­joy it all with some san­gria or any of their se­lec­tion of Span­ish wines and pre­tend for a mo­ment you’ve es­caped to the Mediter­ranean (page 66).
