New chef at Blowfish, still rockin' (Cgy)

I went by Sunterra today and noticed that all their sushi now comes from Blowfish. I didn't try it but will. No doubt it'll be better than the sushi they used to have even though I'm sure it's not as good as going to Blowfish to eat.

Sushi in the YYC

Does anyone know if there is anywhere serving brown rice sushi? A friend of mine asked and to be honest I hadn't really thought of that before.

Thanks for the advice John,
I'll have to try a few of those places out and remember to avoid those others.
Where is that Green chilli place going to be located?

Chinese food downtown delivery/takeout(Cgy)

Hi,
I moved down by 17ave and 14st SW and am having some family over this weekend for Chinese food. Just wondering if anyone could recomend a good place that delivers or is close by for pick up. I've seen a few places around the neighborhood but am wondering if anyone knew which are the best ones in that part of town.

Thanks!!

Exotic fruit calgary

I thought some of the products looked interesting but can't really say I've tried many of them before that I recall. I might have to try a few out I think.

Birthday dinner suggestions - Calgary

Laurier lounge might fit the bill. Had an excellent meal there the other night. It's in a house that's been converted into a restaurant so there were groups of people in there own room. I had the fondue expirience which is a three course fondue meal but everything else on their menu sounded quite good. You can also make your own platter of tapas which would be good for sharing as a group.

I have to agree here, I was at Muse not too long ago and had the sable fish. Delicious! Friend had the beef tenderloin which was apparently excellent aswell. Definitely going back.
