Wrapture is easily one of the most satisfying fast food spots in the neighborhood; its hefty and fresh rice, meat and vegetable wraps are often too big to finish in one sitting. This is an excellent choice for people who are tired of over-processed fast food. Customers can dine in or take out, but seating is limited to three or four tables. In the summer, courtyards are fenced off from the street, allowing patrons to dine outside. Along with the tempting array of wraps, there are delectable fruit smoothies made with whole fruit and fresh Alberta milk, made right in front of the customers.
Añejo is an inspired Mexican restaurant that boasts an impressive collection of over 200 tequilas, though most guests tend to sample the restaurant's house-made margaritas, which have been called the best in Calgary. The restaurant is housed in a multi-level industrial-chic building lit by a gigantic skylight. Sample Jalisco-inspired delights like guacamole prepared in a traditional lava rock mortar, or tuck into a variety of Mexican dishes all crafted with the freshest of ingredients. Be sure to bring along some friends to share a ceviche tasting alongside a variety of other Mexican tapas.
