Sushi House – Banff, AB

We went out to Banff for an afternoon, and it was so much fun! We started the day trip with eating lunch at the Sushi House, as it’s always fun to pick which plate of sushi you want off the moving train that goes around a bar counter.

We have been here before for dinner, and I personally think the options are greater in the evening (and a little fresher as well). We sampled a lot of dishes, and we left with a really full tummy.

One of my favorite sushi would be the Hokkigai, or the surf clam. It wasn’t on the train, but I was able to ask the sushi chef to make me some, and he did without hesitation.

There were also some deep fried options, and those were good as well. As for the gyoza’s, maybe they were sitting on the train a little too long… or it just wasn’t good. Regardless, it was still pretty good, and the price was reasonable also.

The plates that you take off the train are colour coded, and that denotes the price of the plate of your sushi – which is a very convenient system they have!

Milestone’s at Market Mall – Calgary, Alberta

We arrive to Milestone at Market Mall to celebrate my mom’s birthday. It was nice, as the mall offers underground parking, which makes it really nice to go and enjoy a meal when it’s not so nice outside.

The environment was very upscale, and the food is decent. Between the 4 of us, we ordered very different dishes and had cajan shrimp diane, which was a generous portion of shrimp over rice.

We ordered their Seasonal feature which was fettuccine, and that was pretty delicious, with hand cut fettuccine, it was pretty fresh and tasty.

We ordered their lamb sirloin, which is a good portion of meat with some potatoes and season vegetables.

pacific coho. The Pacific Coho was really over cooked when it first arrived, and we did send it back to have a better cooked piece of fish. It was nice of the restaurant to be accommodating.

Even though we were celebrating a birthday, we were too full to enjoy a dessert.

Tubby Dog – Calgary, Alberta

We were craving something different a while ago in the past, and I remember Tubby Dog as it was yesterday. The hot dogs were massive, and delicious! These hot doges may seem expensive when you’re ordering them, but when they arrive, it truly a meal of it’s own!

We ordered 2 types of dogs, one was the massive Sherm’s Ultimate Gripper: dog is bacon wrapped then deep fried. topped with ham, home made chili, cheese, mustard, bacon, hot peppers, onions and a fried egg. The other was just a normal Tubby Dog with homemade chili, cheese, mustard, onions, and bacon.
