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!

  • If you’re looking for ways to give back this holiday season, I recommend donating your time to @SantasAnonymous! 🎅🏻 They need volunteers to sort, wrap and deliver toys for Edmonton kids in need up to their Delivery Weekend (Dec 16/17). Thanks @britl for organizing her annual #yegwrap volunteer party. It’s something I look forward to each year! It doesn’t take much of your time to help make a family’s Christmas merrier.🎄

  • Keeping warm tonight with homemade Budae Jjigae: Korean “army stew!” 🍜 It’s my favourite Korean soup with spicy broth, spam (😍), tofu, mushrooms, noodles, kimchi, onions, hot dogs and sausage. Typically comes with beans but I don’t like beans so. 💁🏻‍♀️ Love eating this with rice too!
(Soup🍜 + rice 🍚 = life).

  • Soup is my most comforting of comfort foods but I’m also totally comforted with any potatoes. 🤤🙏🏻 like the fried potatoes from @tzin104 - They are packed with flavour - garlic, onions, smoked paprika salt, with “angry” aioli. 😍 (While at Tzin, you also NEED to try chef @corndoghatfire’s bacon dish). What’s your go-to comfort food?? 🍽
