Ikki Izakaya Edmonton Japanese - Edmonton Fall Home Show
Ikki Izakaya’s Tuna Tartar with avocado, apple and spring roll chips.

I partnered with the Edmonton Fall Home Show to preview a couple of restaurants with chefs presenting at the Cooking Stage. I made stops at Ikki Izakaya (Chef Ayumi Yuda is presenting), and Vivo Ristorante (Chef Medi Tabtoub is presenting) and loved both experiences. 

Vivo Ristorante Italian Restaurant - Edmonton Fall Home Show
Vivo’s braised beef short rib papparadelle with Madiera tomato sugo, grana padano and parsley.

Ikki’s Happy Hour specials are great (50 cent Takoyakis and $1 Yakitori) and their regular menu items are also super affordable ($5 to about $14). Vivo’s homemade pasta is fantastic, and their focaccia bread comes with the best olive oil. 

Agnolotti lobster, ricotta, Calvados beurre blanc, wild mushrooms, pecorino ($28).
The Edmonton Fall Home Show runs Oct. 20-22, 2017 and features a Cooking Stage!

There’s so many great local chefs sharing their expertise at the Edmonton Fall Home Show Food Stage this weekend, be sure to head over to the Expo to check it out (and also check out the restaurants!!)

  • We got a taste of Venezuela 🇻🇪 today at the new(ish) @avila.arepa in @oldstrathcona! 😊 Arepas are corn buns filled with various toppings. We tried pork and beef arepas, as well as these yuca fries and beef patacones (fried plantains). And we had the cochino fritos - delicious fried pork bites! The restaurant was super busy. It was nice to see Edmontonians embracing Venezuelan food! 😋
Fuller review on the blog soon!👩🏻‍💻

  • 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).

  • Brunch two days in a row? OK. 😊😊😊😊 Today’s brunch was at the new @pip_yeg in @oldstrathcona. Avocado toast & eggs benny get four thumbs up over here! 👍🏻 Farmer’s breakfast & french toast were good but not favourites.

  • 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?? 🍽
