Rae Mi Hyang

Looking for a hidden gem? Rae Mi Hyang is it! This locally owned, Korean-Chinese restaurant isn’t new by any means but it was my first time visiting (pre-pandemic) and I thought their food was excellent so I wanted to share what they had to offer.

Won Jung Gak (closed)

With so many new Korean restaurants opening up, I almost forgot about an old classic: Won Jung Gak. It wasn’t until one of my friends suggested we have lunch there that I remembered how great it still is! Won Jung Gak was the first Korean spot I ever visited a few years back and now […]

Gangnam Street Food

Owned by the same people of Dookbaeki, Baekjeong BBQ, and the newly opened A-mart grocery store, Gangnam Street Food has joined the little niche of Korean restaurants here in south Edmonton.

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 […]

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!

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 […]
