Had dinner at Sky360 (Calgary Tower) friday, some of the food items were extremely well done, and others were kinda mediocre. The restaurant itself is pretty cool, but I can get way better food for way less money elsewhere. Sadly the smoke came back friday, the view wasn't as good as it could have been.

On a positive note, Tokyo Street Market on Centre street has $5 ramen, very good, and great value! highly recommend this place, not sure how long they will keep the prices that low, must be a promotion thing because they are so new.

Ahh, that's why I've seen people lined up at the place. I've noticed it's been busy for such a new place.
 
I tried Tokyo Street Market the other day. The place rocks. It's too bad the prices are supposed to be going up, it's great value right now.
 
A return to patio weather? :)

Any coffee nerds in here? Just bought an espresso machine, curious where everyone gets their beans from. Grabbed a jar of Two Wheel espresso from Rosso, will give that a shot, not thrilled to pay $20 for 300g of coffee beans though...

My favorite beans are from Artigiano, but like the Rosso ones they aren't cheap. Phil & Sebastien is probably my favorite coffee house, but I've never tried the beans from there.
 
I was going to post this a while back and forgot. It's not Calgary city related, but a great option for Calgarians looking to go for a day drive and have a nice dinner somewhere. I highly recommend trying the Silver Slate Steakhouse near Nanton. Steak was was awesome and the prices were reasonable. It's in a weird place kind of in the middle of nowhere, but worth a try.

I'm actually quite fond of the Rosso beans, they are really tasty (not a fan of their coffee for drip machines though, too acidic), will have to try Artigiano and P&S as well, see if there's another that I like as much, but will last longer than a week! My office uses beans from Cappuccino King, and I'm not a huge fan, the machine here is far superior to mine at home, but I like the taste of my home coffee much more.

How does it compare to the Steakhouse in Longview? that's my benchmark for country steakhouses.

I still prefer the one in Longview, and you're right, it's the best steak house country or city IMO. The Silver Slate is very good, and you don't generally need a reservation, which is nice.
