Wurst in Mission, Calgary

I visited Wurst in the Mission district not too long ago for a birthday, and I thought I would share a few photos with the readers of Happy Sushi Belly.

While the UrbanSpoon page for Wurst suggests that they take reservations – it turns out the service is only available for parties of 10 or more. This means when we arrived we did not know if the rest of our (smaller than 10) party was there yet. The hostess wasn’t of any help – she suggested that we head downstairs to look for our party on our own.

I had checked out the menu online in advance, but when I was there I wasn’t especially inspired. I ended up ordering the “Pilz” flatbread – with “wild mushrooms, gruyere, goat cheese and rosemary oil” The menu forgot to include that there would be onions on the dish…

The flatbread was alright, though I found it a bit greasy overall.

For dessert I had the “Wurst Brownie Ever” – a rather dry brownie topped with “warm fudge sauce, kirsch cherries, whipped cocoa, and vanilla ice cream”. It was alright.. though I’ve had much, much better brownies elsewhere.  (The whipped chocolate was probably the best part of the dish.

I found the drink prices really high so didn’t bother ordering a drink at all.  One of our parties cut his lip on a chipped glass, so the bill below reflects the removal of his drinks and dessert from the bill.

I found the whole experience pretty underwhelming. (Including the duck-fat fries which I had heard were great – I sampled a few from one of my companions, and they weren’t anything special either.) The meal was fine, but it just wasn’t remarkable in any way.
