French & Japanese Influences at Carino Japanese Bistro
Carino Japanese Bistro brings an innovative menu and concept that is novel to Calgary, successfully marrying Japanese cuisine to French/Italian influences.
My personal favorite dish of the night was the foie gras chawan-mushi (Japanese steamed egg custard). The combination of the dashi and delicate foie flavour was simply amazing! The seared foie gras over the braised daikon & dashi broth and mentaiko pasta were also very good.
John Gilchrist from CBC recently gave Carino a 9 out of 10, which has increased traffic to this location significantly during the past few weeks. Recommend making a reservation to be safe!
Would like to go back and try the much hyped teriyaki Kobe beef burger (not to mention the crab cake, mozzarella agedashi and intriguing brunch options).
