Uzu Taiyaki is a one-of-a-kind dessert experience. You literally won’t find anything like this anywhere else in Calgary. At Uzu, the ice cream is soft, the toppings are aplenty, and the fun is inevitable but the selling point here really is their adorable fish-shaped cones. This place is as photogenic as it gets.
