Food Giveaways

Giveaway: $50 Gift Card to try Original Joe’s Summer Fresh Menu

Mike and I are big fans of Original Joes. If you’ve never been, Original Joes (or ‘OJs’ as you’ll start calling it when you start going there a lot, lol) is an Alberta-based restaurant/pub (originally founded in Calgary) and today has more than 60 locations across Canada.

Usually it’s one of our go-to spots in the summer for patio drinks and food. There’s seven locations in Edmonton (and a few more surrounding Edmonton) so it’s not too hard to head to an OJs. My favourite dishes to order are generally the chili lime chicken, dragon boat lettuce wraps and wings. Mike always gets one of their burgers (which come with your choice of two sides – that’s probably one of the unique things about OJs is that you get to choose two sides with your main meals!) During the winter they have an incredible tomato soup with cheesy croutons that you MUST ORDER.

Anyway, we’ve been going for years and now I’m super excited because they’re launching their new Original Joe’s Summer Fresh menu and they’ve given me a $50 gift card to give away to a reader!

  • Eep. 💕 For my birthday, @mikethyking commissioned this cartoon portrait of our family and it is PERFECT!! 🐶🐶🐱🐱 Thank you @mikeanthony84 for capturing the personalities of our family so well 🙏🏻 from @mikethyking's love of pizza through his shirt, to Artie's goofiness and Thor's regalness. 😌 Even my leg pop and the pet collars are perfect!! 😻 I had wanted an illustrated family portrait for some time and had been looking for the perfect artist / style. When I discovered Mike Anthony (who is local too!!) I had his work on my "wish list" for a long time and am thrilled to hang this in our home now! ❤️ I highly recommend @mikeanthony84's work if you're looking for a portrait like this! Thank you Mike + Mike!!🤗 .

  • Can weekday brunch be a thing? 😋 Thanks @xix19 for yesterday's lovely birthday brunch! The chicken & egg waffles with sriracha aioli, wasabi slaw, whisky maple syrup, and poached egg is a stellar dish as is their bao benny! (Baos... so hot right now). A few more #lindorkfest meals to go! 😍💕

  • Loved my Bucatini Carbonara from the new-ish @vaticanocucina! 😍Pancetta, Italian sausage, pecorino and delicious handmade pasta at a great price. 👌🏻 Only critique is it could've been creamier but still very tasty! 
Last night's group had mixed feelings overall about the dishes we tried though - yays and nays. I'm in the yay camp for the pasta specifically. ☺️ And am always excited for more Italian options in the city!
Try it and let me know what you think. 🤗

  • Tonight I went on a spontaneous #yegfood dessert crawl with @britl (as research for an upcoming blog post! 😍) It was so much fun! And the strawberry #bingsu from the new-ish @hanjanyeg is AMAZING! Shaved ice & condensed milk dessert. So delicious! We also snuck in a non-dessert with their jaeyuk bokkum spicy pork belly, kimchi and rice. Loooooved it! Will be back to #HanjanYEG so soon.🤤
