I love the diversity in Edmonton’s food scene! Lately, I have noticed an influx of Vietnamese restaurants but it’s not just the usual mom-and-pop pho shops (though those are awesome too). Instead, there’s been a shift highlighting the iconic street food of Vietnam. Being Vietnamese myself, this makes me super excited so I thought I’d […]
After a hiatus on the blog, I’m back to recap some of my latest PIZZA finds.. Whether you like your pie thick or thin, there’s some new-er options to try in the city to satisfy your pizza craving.

There are so many new communities developing around Edmonton and aside from all the beautiful, newly built homes, my favourite thing is finding the hidden food gems in these areas. Too often, I notice that the suburbs around the city seldom have something unique and local. Sure, chain restaurants are convenient and well-loved but as […]
If you’re in search of a local cafe to check out, head to Caffe Sole.

This hybrid pastry offers the best of both worlds with a crispy, outer crust (waffle) and a soft, flaky interior (croissant) From […]
If you are a fan of bingsu, you would of likely visited (or at least heard of ) Let Eat Snow once or twice in the past few years. Well, Let Eat Snow has now rebranded and turned into Urban Plant Cafe! Not to worry though, Urban Plant Cafe still offers bingsu amongst other desserts […]
As we navigate the new normal, I continue to come across different online, home-based small businesses. Over the last few weeks, I’ve had a serious sweet tooth and have also been lucky to receive some gifted treats too. After some indulging, I thought I’d take the opportunity to highlight a few new ones that I […]
Tsujiri recently opened their second location in West Edmonton Mall and I was invited to their media event for a preview. During the event, I got a chance to try some items on their menu and learned what matcha is all about. Here’s a peek into this hosted experience.
Jerk chicken is one dish that I often crave but cannot always easily get. There are definitely a few great spots in the city to grab Jamaican food but they’re not always the most accessible for me, personally.
