Review: Uccellino Edmonton

Uccellino Edmonton

I love Italian food. If I had to eat just a certain type of food for the rest of my life, Italian food would be right up in my Top 3 alongside Vietnamese and Japanese food. I could honestly eat pasta every day! With that in mind, today I wanted to write about one of my favourite Italian restaurants in Edmonton – Uccellino, located downtown on Jasper Ave and 103 Street.…

Review: Calle Mexico (Restaurant)

Calle Mexico Restaurant Edmonton

For a few food truck summers now, I’d noticed Calle Mexico but I’d never actually stopped to try it (much to the dismay of my friend David, who was recommending it regularly). There are just so many food truck options in Edmonton, it’s hard to get to them all! (P.S. The first What The Truck event of Summer 2017 takes place Mother’s Day weekend!)  So when I saw that the Calle Mexico food…

Review + Giveaway: Crash Hotel Lobby Bar

Crash Hotel Lobby Bar Edmonton

One of the great things about the opening of the new Rogers Place in downtown Edmonton is that it spurred a lot of downtown businesses to revitalize and reinvent themselves in anticipation of increased crowds in the area.  One of those reinvented spots – the Crash Hotel Lobby Bar at 10260 103 Street, right across from Rogers Place.  This hotel has a long history in Edmonton. It was first built in 1904 as…

Review + Giveaway: Tupperware Meal Prep Party

Tupperware Meal Prep Party Edmonton

I bet when you read “Tupperware” in the title of this blog post, some things immediately came to mind. Like, tupperware? Oh, food storage containers that take up all that room in my cupboard. Or, tupperware party? So I watch someone talking about Tupperware before having to buy?  When my friend Michelle Bootsman reached out and asked if I’d want to check out her Tupperware Meal Prep Party, I was really interested to learn…

  • I haven't had a really good, loaded potato skin in a long time. So comforting. πŸ™πŸ» This dish is part of @yourAGA's #ZincTapasTuesday - they're offering new menu items to coincide with their new free admission Tuesday (and Wednesday). I got to try some of the dishes tonight with some #foodfriends! My other favourites of the night was the duck breast and a killer pulled pork sandwich that's just $4! πŸ”Thanks @chefdaveomar. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

  • I feel like poke has been allllll over my feed lately! Pronounced "po-kay," this traditional Hawaiian raw fish 🐠 salad, typically served with sauce over rice 🍚, has finally hit the Prairies. 🌾 Over on the blog (www.linda-hoang.com, link in bio), I review the new @OnoPokeCoYEG, which literally translates to "delicious poke." 😊  Delicious poke indeed. Pictured here πŸ“Έ is Ono's Original Ahi tuna poke bowl. Have you tried poke? Are you as thrilled as I am that we finally have great poke options in Edmonton?! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

  • This weekend @mikethyking & I had a great #staycation at the @deltaedmsouth! We love how this hotel is #petfriendly so @OliveAndArtie were able to spend the weekend with us too. 🐢❀️ We also had a great dinner at their 4404 restaurant. Looking forward to coming back here tmrw night for #IndulgenceYEG, a #yegfood & wine festival 🍷 taking place at the Delta. Tickets support the Junior League of Edmonton & I believe some are still available on their website if you want to spice up your Monday with basically unlimited food & wine! ✨

  • I had so much fun guest judging @porkapaloozayeg's "Chop it Like it's Hot" mystery box challenge today with @divaqbbq & #TasteAlberta! πŸ·πŸ”πŸ³πŸ˜ @ChefPaulShufelt & @ChefCowan came up with some really tasty dishes using bacon, chicken, asparagus and lentils. πŸ‘ŒπŸ» In the end, Chef Cowan took the title πŸ†, but it was a really close race!! Pictured here is Chef Cowan's fried chicken, lentils, and carrots dish topped with a fried egg. 🍳 Be sure to see these two in action again for Bacon Day - a charity event they put on each September.

  • New on the blog πŸ“Έ #ExploreEdmonton's #InstagrammableWalls! I've put together a guide to #IGWallsofYEG - mural, graffiti, coloured, interesting textured walls around the city that make for great photo backdrops & add beauty to Edmonton. πŸ’š Check out the spots I've found at www.linda-hoang.com (link in bio) + let me know what spots I'm missing! Hope to host another #instawalk along these wall routes soon, but in the meantime, you can take your own self-guided tour! πŸ€—
