Globefish (Calgary), in new location - great!

I finally tried Globefish in their new space (I don't get north of the river much). It was great, a lot bigger than the old space and no line-up when we went, there were a few times when we left just looking at the line-up in their old space. They have really cool decor with booths in white and black and a long sushi bar. The food is similar to what they had before, my very favourite spider roll plus a few other quite unusual things that were really tasty, for example tempura cheese (it sounded weird but I love cheese so we tried it).

It's also very reasonably priced - so many times a favourite place moves into new digs and the prices get jacked up, not here. We left quite stuffed for $60 for 2 including sake and beer, it would have been $40 without. Very cheap. I'll try to go north of the river more :)

    I was amazed to see GLOBEFISH branded Sushi boxes at Sunterra today. Same company?

      I thought it was BLOWFISH that had the Sunterra account. Blowfish on 11th Ave/6 St SW.

        Globefish is supplying seveal markets with their sushi. I know they supply Sweetgrass Market as well.

          BLOWFISH. You are correct. Sounded the same.

        You can thank, in part, the increasing competition in that area for keeping GF's prices in line- for a while Sushi Club was the only sushi place in Kensington; now you have SC, GF, Tenshi and recently opened Kai.

        If you want an AMAZING deal you can get three rolls for $10 at O Shima (1448 17th Ave SW)- please go, they can use the business.
