It’s been quite a while since I’ve had an opportunity to post in my food blog due to having a new addition to my family. =)
I’ve been to a number of restaurants since the last post and I’d like to start with a nice sushi restaurant in the far south of Calgary in the community of McKenzie Towne.
I had the opportunity of going to Sushi Haru several months ago and was introduced to some of the freshest sushi we have in Calgary. It’s a restaurant with beautiful décor and I am told that it fills up fairly quickly.
My friend Josh and I arrived at 5pm and were promptly seated and he proceeded to order several items from the menu. They offer the traditional sushi rolls as well as tempura, gyoza and so on. The highlight of our evening was our soft-shelled crab, one word: phenomenal. It was crispy but soft and succulent! There was no hint of fishiness in the soft-shelled crab, it was filled with freshness.
The pricing is not exuberant at Sushi Haru, but neither is it food fare that a typical student could afford. It’s a great place to go out for a date or if you just want good sushi.
There are two locations owned by the group of owners, the one in McKenzie and another in Springbank.
If you have a chance, check it out!
