Sabor - Seafood Festival!


A girlfriend and I attended Sabor for dinner for the first time to enjoy their summer Seafood Festival.
When we arrived, we discovered that their sister restaurant Bodega had a half priced wine happy hour until 6:30 pm so we decided to grab a table outside, enjoy the sunshine and have some wine!

The inside of Bodega is beautiful and sits in front of Sabor on the main floor (Sabor is up the stairs).

We also ordered a tapas of Soft Shelled Crab (how hard is it to get that in Alberta?) and I think it was only $6 which was crazy, ridiculously cheap.  It was great!

The inside of Sabor was beautiful as well.

Once inside for dinner we ordered the Seafood Festival Price Fixe Menu that they offered for $55 per person.  We started with seafood in a white wine garlic sauce.  It was out of this world!  I don't normally eat bread but the sauce was so good that we finished our plate of bread and ordered a second one so that we could sop up all of that excellent sauce.  As you can see from the picture below, the seafood was also excellent, plump and fresh.

The next dish was probably the best salad I have ever enjoyed.  The flavours, the herbs and the freshness were just amazing.  Totally delicious.

As our main course, we enjoyed halibut and scallops on a lobster risotto.  I was really looking forward to this dish.  The seafood was cooked perfectly as was the risotto.  I personally, however, enjoy a creamy risotto vs. one with a tomato like sauce so this wasn't my favorite but only because of personal taste.  My friend loved it and was able to take a generous portion home for lunch the next day.

We had a lovely trio of desserts as well - creme brulee, cheesecake with strawberry sauce and a chocolate mousse.  All were excellent and my friend enjoyed a great cappuccino.  Overall a lovely evening and a wonderful meal.
