quickie trip report for Calgary
Was in Calgary for the Comic Expo this past weekend and had a few food highlights.
Home Tasting Room:
Arctic Char on risotto - crispy fish skin and creamy risotto was a good combo
dessert special - chocolate mousse with Kirsch cherries - I liked that the cherries gave a bit of a kick but didn't drown you in alcohol
Holy Grill food truck:
steak bites with parm fries - the sauce they give you with this is delicious, would have liked more cheese shavings
very good service, good quality rolls (I even liked one that had cream cheese on it and I ususally hate those), sashimi slices are gigantic
I fell in love with the mac and cheese. Crispy top, lots of stringy cheese, and creamy inside. I think I like this version better than the one I had at Farm a while back. There was a problem with the dessert (sorbet was frozen solid) but they gave me a discount to apologize.
