New Korean Restaurant - Sura

I wanted to let you know about a great new Korean restaurant in our area - Sura Korean Restaurant - 2320 4 St. NW in Calgary. It replaces the eminently forgetable Olive Garden (or some name like that) but the street signs for the old resto are still up. Good parking lot, by the way, and very nicely decorated inside with linen tablecloths, not necessarily a wise choice when Westerners eat with chopsticks.

We haven't yet tried their $10 lunch special but it looks like a lot of food for the money. However we have eaten twice at supper and both times found the food and service exceptional. They give 7 or 8 side dishes and not only your standard kimchi, bean sprouts, etc. Every dish was delicious and different from the others. The main courses were colourful, well presented, generous servings and very tasty. Warning -- when they say spicy, they mean it!

The menu ranges from bi-bim-bap at $11 or bulgogis starting at $13 to an assortment of hotpots for two in the $24 to $32 range, a bit pricy for us but we're cheap. There are some dishes I've never seen before in Calgary, such as Spicy & Sour Skate-Wing platter (for sharing as an appetizer) and a whole chicken cooked in ginseng, dates and something I can't remember for $22 which we will try the next time we go.
