Naina’s Kitchen specializes in stuffed burgers. Oks wanted to take us here. It seemed like a good plan as we were heading over to the grounds afterwards.
There’s free parking in the back. Perfect if you’re planning to eat and go to the Stampede or Saddledome.
The inside has several chalkboard walls advertising their daily specials.
If you didn’t make a reservation, seat yourself. We came on a Thursday around 6:00pm and we’re lucky that a table for 8 opened up. They have a cute patio outside. Too bad their happy hour is only from 9:00pm – 11:00pm (lame).
Service was sooooo slow and it was a pain trying to flag our waiter down for waters. Food took a long time to come out.
Village blacksmith Alberta black ale and squeeze lemon berry helles ($6.50)
I’ve tried Village’s beer before and can’t say I’m a big fan. Their flavours don’t come through and the beer itself tastes watered down.

Decently grilled but wish they could get it even more so.
The side of tomato soup it came with was way too thick. Skip it.
