Calgary has a huge love of Asian inspired Soup Houses, and I would confidently say some of the best on the world. From King’s legendary Cantonese inspired Wor Won Ton with outlets all over the city, to Vietnamese Pho, (noodle soup), at every corner of this town. We now have Japan represented here in Calgary with Goro + Gun. Unique, delicious thick and silky broths…mine was pork…De-Lish! Filled with rich meats, smoked eggs, fish and Ramen noodles, that is so good and filling. If Sake is your thing, there is over 30 varities to choose from featuring varieties and regions from where they are brewed. I love the taster menu, where you get 3 X 1 ounce to try. Weekday Happy Hour is $5 Sushi and Sake! For all you Sushi crazed Calgarians..the Sushi here is KILLER! Mouth Watering, traditional to trendy chef inspired combos, that are works of art combined with fresh, quality ingredients. The head Chef Tomo Mitsuno spent 7 years working at a Michelin starred restaurant in Osaka, and belongs to an elite group of chefs certified to prepare a deadly blowfish called fugu. Yikes!
The hip interior and Japanese trends are on point here…this place is both fun, and reasonably priced. Located in the Core, it is a welcome end to a great day walking or shopping down town for some comfort food and drink. If you are grabbing a quick lunch, they have a stand up noodle bar that offers a $10 Bowl any time of the day. There is not many places where you feel so welcome either…with their tradition of every staff member shouting out welcome as soon as you arrive! Fun! I love Goro + Gun! Okawari Oishii!
