If you've ever found yourself craving a meal late at night in Calgary, you probably go for the obvious slice of pizza or fast food. But why go with the usual after-bar bites when you could have fresh, delicious Calgary Dim Sum until the wee hours of the morning? U & Me Restaurant on Centre Street is open until 4 a.m. and their dishes are both delicious and super affordable.
The dim sum hot-spot is located at 233 Centre St. S.W. and it is open for your dining pleasure from 8 a.m. to 4 a.m. every day of the week.
Their dim sum dishes start at only $5.29 which is perfect because they are normally for sharing. From steamed shrimp dumplings to deep-fried sweet cream buns, you really can’t go wrong.
When you walk in, the owner and staff will greet you like you’re family and you’ll feel so at home you might not want to leave. Luckily, it’s open for almost the entire day.
“All of your demands and feelings will be cared for in our restaurant,” explains the restaurant’s website. Really, isn’t that what we’re all looking for? Care for our feelings, feed us — that’s all we ask.
In addition to their extensive Dim Sum menu, they also serve tons of main dishes if you're not the sharing type. Though, if you are the sharing type, Dim Sum is a super cute date idea.
As for mains, their noodle dishes are absolutely legendary. We'd highly suggest the pickled cabbage and tender beef fried noodles.
Though there are tons of Calgary bars to enjoy on the weekends, last call always sneaks up on you and you're left looking for something to do and to eat.
Well, this cozy restaurant has got you covered.
"This is a hidden little gem in China Town," said one online review.
"On weekends after partying in downtown Calgary there are not many options open past 2am," wrote another, going on to recommend U & Me to anyone looking for late-night food in YYC.
Pizza can totally hit the spot, but dim sum is a welcome addition to Calgary's late-night offerings.
If you're leaving a Calgary bar and hoping to fill up on good food, you know exactly where to go.
