Ikki Sake Bar

Head to the west end of Jasper Ave and you can find Ikki Sake Bar. Having recently celebrated their 6th birthday, this locally owned business revamped their menu and rebranded themselves from being an izakaya to a sake bar. Their menu now focuses on a selection of sake drinks and a few Japanese-fusion tapas. In […]

Photolog: Damso Izakaya

In the mood for some Japanese? Edmonton has its fair share of really great izakaya spots to check out but if you’re looking for a new-er spot to enjoy, I recommend Damso Izakaya! They’re situated on Whyte Ave and have a menu that is quite unique and tasty. I especially love that I can come […]

Travel with Sharon: Toronto Eats

Last summer, I visited Toronto for the first time ever and I left the city stuffed. Being such a large city, there are SO many places to check out and I really don’t think it’s possible to make it to every spot in one visit. Plus, there is always new places popping up! However, if […]

If you guessed by their name, they also serve Korean fried chicken although I came here specifically for the tonkatsu. I originally found this place through IG and it was recommended to me by several […]

I’ve been going to Menjiro Ramen pretty often lately! Their menu and ramen bowls have significantly improved over time and their prices are super affordable (starting at $10.50). While there are some other great ramen spots in the city, I head to Menjiro Ramen because they are conveniently located and their bowls are filling and […]

Photolog: Rush Bowls

I was recently invited to check out Rush Bowls and wanted to share some photos! Rush Bowls offers all-natural fruit and vegetable bowls, as well as all-natural smoothies. While they *look* like any regular smoothie joint, Rush Bowls sets themselves apart by being an advocate for “all-natural” because their bowls and smoothiesΒ don’tΒ have any artificial sugars, […]

Photolog: OEB breakfast

If you haven’t already heard, OEB is the latest breakfast restaurant to take Edmonton by storm. It’s pretty much always busy but for a good reason – the space is beautiful and the food is great. I personally really love it here and have been eager to pick it as a brunch spot whenever I […]

Photolog: Sushi Wasabi

Happy new year! I’m kicking off 2019 with a post to document my adventure at one of Edmonton’s most loved sushi restaurants (at least according to Yelp and a few friends). I have been recommended Sushi Wasabi a few times but was always reluctant to go due to the menu consisting of a lot of […]
