We arrive to Milestone at Market Mall to celebrate my mom’s birthday. It was nice, as the mall offers underground parking, which makes it really nice to go and enjoy a meal when it’s not so nice outside.
The environment was very upscale, and the food is decent. Between the 4 of us, we ordered very different dishes and had cajan shrimp diane, which was a generous portion of shrimp over rice.
We ordered their Seasonal feature which was fettuccine, and that was pretty delicious, with hand cut fettuccine, it was pretty fresh and tasty.
We ordered their lamb sirloin, which is a good portion of meat with some potatoes and season vegetables.
pacific coho. The Pacific Coho was really over cooked when it first arrived, and we did send it back to have a better cooked piece of fish. It was nice of the restaurant to be accommodating.
Even though we were celebrating a birthday, we were too full to enjoy a dessert.

We were craving something different a while ago in the past, and I remember Tubby Dog as it was yesterday. The hot dogs were massive, and delicious! These hot doges may seem expensive when you’re ordering them, but when they arrive, it truly a meal of it’s own!
We ordered 2 types of dogs, one was the massive Sherm’s Ultimate Gripper: dog is bacon wrapped then deep fried. topped with ham, home made chili, cheese, mustard, bacon, hot peppers, onions and a fried egg. The other was just a normal Tubby Dog with homemade chili, cheese, mustard, onions, and bacon.

The Dessert House is one of my favorite places to go in Calgary. There’s quite a few things on the menu that I really enjoy!
One of my favorite things are the deep fried cuttlefish balls. I know, I can make it at home myself, but it’s pretty neat to have such appetizers with a nice bubble tea.
I have a few favorite drinks at the Dessert House. At the end of the year, my favorite drink would be the fresh persimmon drink. It’s really good! It actually just tastes like persimmons blended up!! I love persimmons, and I just eat it as is. I leave the blending to the Dessert House. Another favorite drink of mine would be either the pineapple or lychee green tea (cold) with no jellies or pearls.
I’ve never been a fan of the large tapioca balls or jellies in any of my drinks, but I do appreciate a good bubble tea!
The Dessert House offers an extensive selection of snacks on their menu, from steamed rice crepes to instant noodles! We use to go here for a small dinner, or a late night snack and order lots of delicious treats.
