We had to do a birthday dinner redo as I was not satisfied with the original plans for my husband, so during a quiet getaway to Kananaskis, we dined at Fireweed Grill which I must say was amazing and perfect for any occasion – even lack of an occasion! It was perfect!
We didn’t order anything to start with, so for my entree I had Quebec Pork Tenderloin which I don’t know how it Quebec, but it was lovely. The meat was slightly overcooked but because it was pork tenderloin, it remained really tender and delicious. With the glaze topped with the salsa, the dish was heavenly!
The birthday boy ordered the New York Striploin which was a 10oz steak which was cooked really funny. The thickness difference was 1cm from either sides, making one edge of it “over cooked” and the other edge “perfect”. We didn’t say anything, but it was still tasty and the sauce did help with the well-doneness and everything else seemed so perfect!
Since everything was amazing, we decided we would have dessert. Our waitress was Kelsey who was absolutely amazing and adorable. She recommended her favourite to us, the Banana Bread Pudding which we were shocked how incredible it was. It was piping hot from the bread pudding and ice cold from the ice cream. The combination of it together — there are no words to describe it. Even eating the portions by itself was absolutely memorable. We eat a lot of desserts and so for, this ranks #2 out of ALL desserts we have had to date.
Overall, we were stuffed and extremely satisfied. The dessert and Kelsey really made our experience one to remember and we would return any day! It made the perfect weekend getaway!
