Spotlight On Heaven Restaurant Market

Patricia Capuzzi and her husband Marco brought their little slice of “Heaven” to 17th Ave more than eight years ago, and since then they have been serving up authentic Latin dishes and eclectic comfort food at their cozy 17th Ave restaurant, where in addition to serving an array of mouth-watering dishes, also offer a variety of options for vegans, vegetarians and those with gluten intolerances. 

100% Gluten-Free, Traditional Venezuelan Dishes

Their 100% gluten-free menu is made up of traditional Venezuelan dishes – Patricia and Marco both hail from Venezuela and boast years of experience in the kitchen – as well as their take on a handful of comfort food items like their famous mac’n’cheese, and poutine made with yuca, a crispy root vegetable in place of potato fries. 

Latin Favourites Made With Locally-Sourced Vegetables and Meat

Dig into Latin favourites like their flavourful mini empanadas, available in more than seven different flavour variations (and also available frozen to take home and bake yourself), tacos with toppings like chorizo, fish and pulled pork, and Arepas filled with locally-sourced vegetables and Alberta meats. 

Get Your Favourite Heaven Goods On Their Online Marketplace

This Red Mile hidden gem also has an online marketplace where you can stock up on all of your Heaven favs. Bring home pre-made dishes like their pulled pork Pabellon, an authentic Venezuelan dish made with seasoned black beans, sweet fried plantains, and coconut rice, or create your own dish with pantry staples like black beans, tortillas and Mexican chorizo. All market items are available for pickup from their 17th Ave location, or for delivery in Calgary. 

When restrictions allow dine-in services, this long-standing Latin restaurant on 17th Ave is definitely worth a visit, but until then, you can order your favourite Heaven dishes for delivery or pickup at the link below!
