On a recent visit to Edmonton, my friend and I were treated to a family-style feast hosted by SABOR Restaurant and Bonafide Media & PR. Located in the heart of Edmonton’s downtown, SABOR features the flavours of Iberian (Portuguese/Spanish/Mediterranean) coastal cuisine using hand-selected sustainable Ocean-wise seafood.
The Family-style at SABOR ($55 per person) consists of a three course feast prepared by Chef Lino based on seasonal ingredients and daily inspirations.
We started off this epic dinner with some bubbly paired with fresh shucked Kusshi & Irish Point Oysters. Next up were the perfectly Seared Scallops with a refreshing cucumber salsa & balsamic glaze and the amazing Grilled Piri Piri Prawns with mixed greens & piri piri aioli. Being a spice fiend, these flavourful Piri Piri Prawns were my favourite bite of the night.
For our main course, we had a fantastic Lobster Risotto with buttery, melt-in-your-mouth Sablefish and Halibut. I was really impressed with how perfectly cooked the risotto was.
We finished off our Family-style Seafood Feast in epic fashion with a trio of their decadent housemade desserts – Whipped Cheesecake with sour cherries in port; Leite Creme “DONA IRENE” (Portuguese Cream Custard with caramelized sugar and cinnamon); and Chocolate Cayenne Mousse.
If you do have a chance to visit SABOR, I would highly recommend you try their Family-style Feast. For my friend and I this was definitely the perfect way to cap off our girls weekend in Edmonton.
