When I go to Calgary, I usually visit Towa or El's for the biggest and best maki rolls. On a recent trip, I decided to hit up Urbanspoon to see what was close by me. Wa's popped up and the promise of authentic sushi drew me in.
Wa's is a cute little sushi place that has a strange sun room where there's additional seating. It's far away from the sushi bar but it's well lit with natural lighting. Since I was there early, I didn't have to worry about reservations but the restaurant was already close to full.
I realize that when you're hungry, going for sushi will lead to uncontrolled ordering! Wa's has a lot to choose from and definitely, a lot of traditional eats that you normally wouldn't find in a sushi restaurant (think natto!)
Spicy tuna with avocado
Scallop sushi, Salmon sushi, Negitoro roll, Dynamite roll
Chirashi - we were going to order the special Chirashi (which comes with sweet shrimp) but because they did not have sweet shrimp that day, the waitress helpfully suggested that we go with the regular chirashi - because it was a 'better deal' :)
I think this was a special tuna roll - which red tuna, tuna, and negitoro
Price wise - it wasn't cheap but it doesn't cost too much. Probably average price for going out for sushi. Budget around $25-$30 per person.
Service - really attentive and helpful.
Taste - fresh fish, delicious appetizers, and great selection on the menu.
If you're in Calgary and need a new sushi place to try out, go to Wa's!
