Sky 360 – Big Taste Lunch

Playboy was sick, so our plans to try out Shokunin  were scrapped. I saw J.Chews positive review of Sky 360, so Leng Lui, Office Dad and I made reservations to check it out. Normally the entrance fee to visit the Calgary Tower is $18, but if you eat at the Sky 360 restaurant, you get to check out the observation deck for free.

For the Big Taste event, Sky 360 offers a three course meal for $25. I ordered a green salad, grilled blackened chicken sandwich and for dessert, gelato. Leng Lui went rogue and ordered the potato leek soup and the fettucine.

I was pleased with my salad. The pomegranate and pink peppercorn vinaigrette was subtle. The carrot chips gave the salad a pleasant crunch. The greens were the leafy type and not the typical watery romaine and iceberg variety.

The chicken in the sandwich was thick, all white meat. The focaccia was toasted with melted provolone, juicy tomato slices, greens and a whole lot of roasted pepper aioli. A solid sandwich. I liked that proportionally, there was an equal amount of meat and toppings to bread. The fries were average but a big portion, though not very crispy.

For dessert, we received two small scoops of blueberry gelato with basil. Two slices of melon completed the dish. Thanks Leng Lui for the photo.

If you want to get in and out within an hour, I would not recommend this restaurant. We arrived at 12:30 pm and I returned at the office at 2:20 pm, a huge faux pas in my workplace. I’ll be working on the weekend to make up for the time I missed.

We all agreed that if  you take into account the free view, it’s totally worth a visit. The view is gorgeous and the restaurant is quiet and private, which is great if you want to have a romantic dinner,  catch up with friends or want to entertain an out of town guest.
