    People always enjoy meals more on vacation. No surprise there.

    Lots of people here shit on Cowtown but then compare it to places 4-5x its size.
    I find this to be a common trait of Calgarians who don't get out much.

    Yeah Calgary is the worst… I hate how I can go to a place that would have Michelin stars if we had them for 1/2 the amount of Canadian pesos as the same experience would cost in pounds if it was in the UK

    I apologize, my recommendation was not clear therefore I will provide further context.

    From the Merriam - Webster dictionary:

    decent
    adjective
    de∑​cent ˈdē-sᵊnt

    4: fairly good : ADEQUATE, SATISFACTORY
    "decent wages"
    Thanks for the context. I don't find it decent, adequate, nor satisfactory lol. Agree to disagree on this one.

    What’s your go to restaurant?
    Depends on cuisine? Japanese, I hit up Sukiyaki House most often now that Roku shut down. I started going to Ponshu recently, I consider that "decent" and it's convenient because it's close. White food, rouge is still our go to, and Flores and Pine is decent with a bonus of being close. Pub food, big fan of Blowers and Grafton. I don't have a go to for steakhouses anymore, used to be Ruth's Chris until they changed their meat supplier. That's off the top of my head.

    From your earlier list I've been to Lonely Mouth and Bridgette Bar. Was drinking more than eating at both, food was great for the snacking amounts of food I had.

    I like the white soy sauce at lonely mouth… great atmosphere too… but felt a little bit like a Shokunin menu knockoff (but more limited)

    Me too. Killy set me straight.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age."

    Rouge was terrible if you ask me, horrible ambiance and the food was so so.

    I havenít been to Sukiyaki House in ages.

    Ruthís Chris I could never get the urge to try, reminded me of the Keg haha.

    Bottom line is I think everyone has their own opinion.

    I do feel Calgary is starting to get a decent selection of restaurants.

    For me I prefer quality over quantity, a large plate of food doesnít equate to value for me.

    Excellent preparation, presentation & flavour far exceeds the amount of food for me.

    Check out the Omakase we did at Unami Noodle Bar, incredible spread.

    3 posts covering it all

    Anyways carry on haha.

    Agreed with Buster.

    Size doesn't matter (giggity) as long as there's expendable income.

    Nashville, Memphis, Houston, Seattle, Portland all have better dining choices with smaller populations. I've never been on vacation in any of these either (for the "vacation effect"), and most of my work trips were never vacation like either.

    I'm not shitting on Calgary, as said it's just "good and accessible".

    I don't have a horse in this race, but feel obligated to point out that the only one of those with a smaller (and even remotely close) population is Memphis.

    Greater Seattle: ~4mm
    Greater Houston: ~7mm
    Greater Portland: ~2.5mm
    Greater Nashville: ~2mm
    ....
    Greater Calgary: ~1.5mm

    Yes, but those are greater areas. How many people are driving from Tacoma to downtown Seattle for dinner? How many people in Crossfield dine on Stephen ave?
