This was a special place as I lost a co-worker from the Caribbean, and Devil’s Table in Canmore has their head chef that grew up on the same island as my coworker. It’s not the same town but same region so it was my little tribute and I needed to eat here for myself. This restaurant is inside a hotel which was really cozy and comfortable. We parked on the streets in the residential area, and walked over and it wasn’t a big deal.
I ordered their Shark bait which was Coconut Fennel Curry over red snapper and some shrimp, and it comes with grilled Focaccia to soak up all the sauce. The red snapper was absolutely delightful and definitely the star of the show. The coconut curry was really light, and it wasn’t overpowering at all!
We also ordered Buckaneer which Char Grilled Elk Burger, Boar Bacon, Smoked Cheddar, topped with a rum and pineapple ketchup and corn relish on a bun. This wasn’t a burger but a meat loaf really and it didn’t have a game flavour at all and with the balance of the sweet condiments it was perfect and refreshing!
We enjoyed the dinner so much that we even had dessert! They called it pudding on my receipt but it was a creme brulee! It was a custardy creme brulee and we enjoyed it thoroughly!
I really enjoyed my experience here and it’s not a place I would ever forget! The food, the service and the atmosphere was extremely amazing and it was a brilliant new cuisine type for this region!
