We wanted something different for lunch one day while in Calgary and found Carino Japanese Bistro. Interestingly, if you are looking for sushi, you are in the wrong place. However, in the absence of sushi, Carino Japanese Bistro is one of the 2013 Best New Restaurants for Enroute, Air Canada’s inflight Magazine.
Located in the foodie haven of Edmonton Trail, Carino Japanese competes with the likes of Diner Deluxe and OEB for the lunch crowd.
The interior of the restaurant is modern with black chandeliers and a prominent bar in the backend.
Perusing the menu, the Flavored Mimosa caught my wife’s eyes. With Yuzu as an option, my wife ordered it.
My wife thought it tasted wonderful and already confirmed a repeat order in the future.
We were each offered a Complimentary Salad to start.
The Complimentary Salad was tossed in a balsamic vinegrette. It was tasty and wetted our appetite.
