We were planning on doing the tasting menu, but were pretty tired, and not as hungry as we expected to be, so we decided to save that for another time. Instead, we shared two appetizers, and two pastas. All the portions are very small, so it's a place where you should definitely order multiple dishes. Also, don't be surprised, it is quite pricey for the portion sizes, so if you're all about quantity, this might not be the place for you. It's definitely a place for quality, however.
We started with the mushrooms and scallops (about $17 each for reference):
Both were really good, fresh, and used high quality ingredients.
We then shared the pasta special (puttanesca sauce), and a beet root filled pasta.
Both were superb, and it was very evident that the noodles were made fresh, from scratch. Most pastas run about $24 dollars at this restaurant, but as I mentioned, you are paying for quality, not quantity. We would definitely order each of these dishes again.
After dinner we headed back to our hotel room and crashed for the night. On Saturday morning we ended up eating a Ukrainian plate of food for a late breakfast. We were picking up perogies for my mom from Baba's Perogies, and shared a big messy plate ourselves before going to see her for the day.
We had a late lunch, sharing a sushi roll and bowl of ramen at Fuzion. The ramen was really good, and probably the best we've had in Saskatoon. This was our first time eating at this little, casual, Asian bubble-tea/ sushi bar, but we'll be back.
We spent the evening in our hotel, and grabbed a late dinner at Aroma.
We took our leftover pizza and a slice of peanut butter, pretzel cheesecake to-go, and went back up to our room for the evening.
On Sunday morning we had a quick breakfast before spending the day with my mom, and then hitting the road home.
How was your weekend? What did you do?
