Weekends in Calgary are the best. After a couple hours at the grounds, our group wanted sushi and one of my friends randomly looked up and found Sushi Mori. I had no idea that they serve ramen but when I saw it on the menu, I was stoked! Located in a random strip mall area all the way out in Thorncliffe neighbourhood, I knew it was going to be good the instant I saw the outside. Hello hidden gem.
We arrived pretty late Saturday evening (around 9pm) but there were still quite a few tables occupied. When you first walk in, they have a daily special menu which I highly recommend you look at. I glanced at it and from what I remember, they had a couple really good deals. 20 pieces of sashimi for $24.00??? Wow. Dealz. I also spotted a lobster dinner for four that was going for $108.00. Sounded like a lot of food for a really reasonable price. Next time!
Tom yum BBQ pork ramen ($13.95)
Tom yum ramen??? Um, yes, it’s going dowwwwwwwwwwwwwn. The broth was intense, packed with tons of flavour and even had a satisfying kick to it. This is why people are addicted to ramen. When you have a good bowl, you’re hooked. The BBQ pork was melt in your mouth tender with a smoky char to contrast all the fattiness surrounding it. If you like fat, you’ll love the way Sushi Mori does their chashu. Oh, and can’t forget about the egg. Perfectly done with the right consistency and ooze. Brilliant.
Spicy miso BBQ pork ramen ($13.95) – I had a taste of the spicy miso broth. Good flavour but mine was definitely the winner out of the two. My friend agreed. Haha, the grass is always greener on the other side.
Teriyaki beef with rice ($11.95) – comes with a miso soup and salad. Another friend tried out one of their don bowls. Seemed pretty standard but she enjoyed it.
Awesome little spot for sushi and ramen! I can’t believe there are so many places like this in Calgary to eat at. So jelly. The ramen list just keeps on getting better and better for me in Cowtown. Definitely worth a try if you haven’t been. I’ll be back for sure.
