Bottega 104

Botegga 104 Italian Kitchen & Bar has recently taken over the space of what used to be Patrack Louie Kitchen & Bar. Located along Calgary Trail, off of Whyte Ave, the restaurant is neighbours with some other fan favourites – MEAT, Pip etc. Unfortunately, I feel that Botegga 104 fell short of my expectations in […]

Casa Laurel Kitchen

I am no expert on Filipino food but I think it’s safe to say that Casa Laurel Kitchen does a pretty good job of cooking up a delicious Filipino meal. I recently ventured far north to check out the restaurant and was particularly impressed with the ambience and service. The food was notably good but […]

Golden Bunch

As a fry lover, my interest was peaked when I learnt of Golden Bunch. They are a locally owned family business which serves unique potato creations, on wheels! Yes, a food truck! Owner Sumit is introducing Edmontonians to Freakk Fries (because they are freakishly long) and Masala Spuds. As a matter of fact, this is […]

Cacao 70

Cacao 70 recently opened its first location in Edmonton in the Ice District. This location is a sweet house, offering all-day brunch, desserts, and drinks. It’s a beautiful space with quaint floors, pastel colors, and beautiful marble detailing throughout. Short recap food-wise… come prepared with a sweet tooth for the desserts because they were great!

South Edmonton Common – 20 Years, 20 Winners – GIVEAWAY

I’ve been a resident of south side YEG all my life, so South Edmonton Common (SEC) has practically been a go-to place since I was young. I’ve seen the area develop over the years… even worked there for a bit, and still go to many of the stores often – it’s fair to say that […]

Golomein

If you haven’t heard, Golomein is delicious. This family-owned shop was my first experience with Bruneian food. My fellow foodie, Alyshia from Caramunchies, was actually the one who recommended it to me and I’ve been hooked since! With their location being tucked away, it’s safe to call Golomein a hidden gem here in southside Edmonton. […]

Baekjeong Korean BBQ House

What used to be Kobe Ramen is now Baekjeong Korean BBQ House! Owned by the same people who run Dookebaeki, it’s no surprise that my meal and experience at Baekjeong were great (P.S. you can read my review of Dookbaeki here).  Although there is noticeably a plethora of Korean restaurants in southside Edmonton, Baekjeong is a step […]

For those of you that read my blog posts, I’m sure by now you have seen me mention that I love finding good restaurants in south side #yeg! So, I think it’s time I blog about another discovery. My latest find has been Buco Pizzeria + Vino Windermere. Buco isn’t new by any means – […]

Boardwalk

Now that I finally have a mini break from school, I thought I’d share my quick thoughts on Boardwalk, a new burger joint that has recently popped up along Gateway Blvd./Calgary Trail – the first to open here in Edmonton. Boardwalk specializes in burgers, fries, and shakes – reminding me very much of burger chains […]
