The Cattle Baron (South) – Calgary, Alberta

I found myself looking for something fancy for dinner one evening. It was kind of cold and I was definitely under the weather. My husband decided we’d go and have steak — I know, kind of weird, but it was nice! Well, actually, he just wanted to try the south leg of the Ring Road and figured we’d eat wherever we ended up. So, we ended up at Cattle Baron at the South location.

I sat down, and ordered my drink. Extra spicy it was, but it was good! I’m just being very picky now as there wasn’t too many flaws throughout dinner… but I gotta say, when the ice melted, the bottom of the drink wasn’t as good! 🙂

Once our drinks came, a generous bread basket arrived too! Who wants to eat bread when they know they’re going to be tearing meat? Oh well, I had some bread and it was really good too! They win!

Now for the fun part, I ordered their Prime Rib which I got mine in their regular cut, but it was perfect! It was so tender and juicy – and quite a large portion of meat too! I got mine with stuffed potato as I haven’t had it in YEARS!

My husband enjoyed a nice Rib Eye Steak which I was kind of jealous of! It was so good and the grill taste was there, and was 10oz! I wouldn’t be able to finish it, but it was excellent for sure!!

Overall, we had a very pleasant experience and there were some company Christmas parties going on at the time of our visit. We didn’t have the wait long and the food didn’t taste like it was rushed… nor were we rushed either! It was a great dinner we had and I hope to be back soon!

Chop Steakhouse & Bar (Chinook) – Calgary, Alberta

We arrived at CHOP the other night for a celebration of ours. We were super excited to try an upscale steak house, which was true!

We arrived about 6pm, and it was starting to get busy, but we were lucky and was able to grab a table. The atmosphere was really quite warm, and modern! It is a family friendly location, as well as it can be romantic as well as business gathering — really quite a versatile atmosphere!

We ordered the catch of the day, which turned out to be this wonderful piece of white fish, with sesame crust in a ginger soy sauce. It really was quite tasty.

We also ordered a piece of medium-rare prime rib, which was also tasty and tender.

As this was “celebration” night, we also ended the evening with a dessert. We ordered the Fallen Chocolate Souffle Cake and it was not good. This didn’t end our evening well. The chocolate fondant was extremely hard, and the layer underneath it was a strange marshmallow layer – which was suppose to be
mascarpone mousse. It didn’t look like a souffle, fallen or not, and it didn’t taste good either.
