Shef’s Fiery Kitchen

Operated by sisters Shefali (Shef) and Sharon Somani, Shef’s Fiery Kitchen has become a popular lunch spot in the Calgary Farmers’ Market. With roots dating back to the market at Currie Barracks, the eatery offers a variety of dishes from India, Thailand, Pakistan, Burma, and east Africa. They proudly source natural, antibiotic- and hormone-free beef and chicken, make the curries gluten-free and change the menu every three weeks. Shef and Sharon use a traditional tandoor oven to grill lamb, beef and chicken and the menu is full of fresh-made items and frozen, heat-and-serve curries large enough to feed two adults. As more customers are stocking their freezers in uncertain times, these products have gained popularity. The butter chicken is a hot seller, and we know why: it’s everything we dream about in a butter chicken. The team has created a line of basic Indian spices, pastes, and powdered blends for take-home. Pick up meals in the market and at a handful of retailers around town including Calgary Co-op, Bite Grocer and Eatery and Sunnyside Market in Kensington. At press time, restaurants and markets are open to limited capacity. Take-out and delivery are available.
