MKT has been open for over a year now and is a favourite of ours in the summer. It's an easy walk from our place, and they have a fantastic patio and beer selection. However, it seems that we have never actually ordered a meal there. Sure, we've had the nachos (delicious and large serving size) and other appetizers, but never a full meal.
On a side note, MKT should not be confused with MRKT (downtown on Jasper). MKT is owned by the Century Hospitality Group (100, Lux, etc.). Why they chose a name so similar to another restaurant is beyond me.
Anyway, it was relatively quiet for a Sunday afternoon, though there were definitely groups seated at the bar and in some of the booths. Given our mood, we were happy for the quiet environment.
The boyfriend is a huge fan of MKT for their massive beer selection. They have 60 beers on tap and another 60 bottled varieties. While I am definitely a wine girl through and through, I quite enjoy MKT since they have lots of beers that I like.
These days, Blanche de Chambly seems to be my favourite! It was a nice and refreshing choice on this Sunday afternoon.

The boyfriend went with the burger (MKT Brgr’: 7 oz. Spirit View Ranch Heritage Angus beef burger, double smoked bacon, aged cheddar, roasted tomatoes, arugula, spicy mayo, fresh baked bun, $15). He was extremely satisfied with his burger. The patty was thick and cooked through without being dry. Plus he's really a sucker for anything with bacon on it. I tried a bite and thought the arugala was a nice touch, as opposed to the standard lettuce.

All things considered, our meal really hit the spot. There were a few little things that could be improved with each dish, but overall it was tasty and satisfying. This is definitely a place that is worth frequenting for the beer list alone! And the food is pretty good as well. They have a large food menu and I would definitely be willing to try some of their other dishes next time we are there.
