    Default New Restaurant in Calgary

    For those of you who like Malaysian cuisine, they've opened a new TROPIKA in Calgary. Seems like every Asian I know who drives down to Edmonton always goes to that restaurant and now we have our own. Today is the Grand Opening but it has opened for three pre-days and all items were 30% off. I went there for lunch yesterday. It was okay, maybe a little overrated but maybe I just didn't try the good stuff.

    It's in that Madison Plaza on Centre Street across from Lambda Supermarket and Sun Chiu Kee. Anyone else been to it or the one in Edmonton?

    Open Sesame is an Asian Fusion place and anything Asian Fusion to orientals is gross because they know that these weren't meant to be cooked together in the first place.

    At Open Sesame they have something called a 'market cart' where you go to this fresh 'buffet' table and place whatever raw vegetables you please in this bowl. Then you choose what mixture of sauces you'd like and pour it on top of your raw vegetables. After everything is done, you bring it to the kitchen where a chef cooks it on an open flame in front of you. You tell them what kind of meat you want and they stirfry it all in one bowl. So what you get is this soggy or perhaps tasteless bowl of mixed stirfried vegetables with raw-hide chewy meat and noodles...and then you can't say it was their fault since you chose all the sauces and stuff.

    That sounds like the mongolian place on 4th street or so.

    That place is a fucking rip off. That's the first and last time I'll ever go there.

    Max Boost Food Inc. is a whole lot better. And no, he didn't pay me to say that.

    Mongolian Grill is pretty good.

    Hmm I better try out TROPIKA (while I'm still close - like blocks away) before I move to boony land in the north.

    Open Sesame does sound a lot like Mongolia Grill.
    Asian Fusion - what a cute word....

    Man I hate those mongie grille type places! If I wanted to take a bunch of ingrediants and just simply cook/heat it, I could do that myself!
