Review: Takami Sushi Edmonton

Takami Sushi Edmonton Japanese

Edmontonians love their Japanese food. So much so that I’ve lost count of just how many Japanese restaurants there are in our city (hint: it’s a lot). We’ve got a lot of options to satisfy our Japanese cravings and adding to that list of options is the new Takami Sushi in Allendale, at 10430 61 Avenue (just off Calgary Trail).  Takami Sushi is located in a business park, in a very…

Review: Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant

Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant Edmonton

So often, posts I see on social media end up influencing where I eat in Edmonton. That’s what led Mike and I to Me 2 Japanese Sizzling Restaurant (9314 34 Avenue) last week. I had been seeing photos and video on Instagram showing these sizzling dishes of rice and meat that looked so delicious (and fun – what with the sizzle and all!) that when we were planning a dinner with our friends Brittney and Bin,…

Review: Dorinku Tokyo Street Food

Dorinku Tokyo Street Food Edmonton Old Strathcona

Japanese food is truly one of my favourites. That’s why I was super excited to visit Edmonton’s newest Japanese izakaya – Dorinku – which opened on Whyte Avenue at the corner of 102 Street in July. An izakaya is like a casual Japanese gastropub that typically focuses on drinks and small plates (Fun fact: ‘dorinku’ means drink in Japanese!) In Japan, izakayas are often popular after-work spots. They work a lot there, so you…

Review: Kazoku Ramen

Kazoku Ramen Edmonton - Japanese

Our ramen options in Edmonton continue to get better and better! More areas in the city are also being covered – you’ve got Nomiya in the south, Kobe Sushi Ramen even farther south, Prairie Noodle on 124 Street, Yuzen (only on Saturdays) in St. Albert north, and so many more… On the west end (most conveniently located for Mike and I), is Kazoku Ramen, which opened in October. When Mike and I first went…

Review: Nomiya Japanese (Ramen)

Nomiya Edmonton - Ramen - Sushi

Last weekend Mike and I went with our friends Fred and Catherine to try the ramen at Nomiya Japanese Restaurant on Calgary Trail. Since we got back from our trip to Japan in October, Mike and I have been craving ramen much more than we had pre-trip. While the opening of the Prairie Noodle Shop was a very welcome addition to the ramen options in Edmonton, it didn’t quite satisfy…

  • The #dogfriendly 🐕🐶 @citymarket104 is my favourite #farmersmarket in Edmonton! Olive, Artie and I had such an awesome morning there with @theporkgirl, who helped me pick out some plants 🌱🌿 for the new garden @mikethyking built in our yard! Hope your Saturday is going great too. ☺️

  • What a bao-utiful day for baos! 🙊☺️☀️ Have a feeling I'll be visiting @kabaoyeg often this summer for my #bao fix since their new location is so close to work AND they're delicious! The shiitake kale vegetarian bao is SO good. @heyvanessaleigh & I ordered the whole menu today - pork, beef, chicken and mushrooms. Happy Friday!!! 🤗

  • I love taking out of town friends to some of my favourite restaurants in the city. Tonight, we feasted at @rostizado_yeg with our friends Jack & Nicole from Medicine Hat + @yourbestfred & @catherine0626! 🙏🏻🙌🏻 Always get the platter. Always get the roasted cauliflower. Always get the churros. 🤤 Literally, everything we had was delicious but those are always my fav.

  • A lovely #MothersDay brunch at @deltaedmsouth today, where I tried ground cherries (that beautiful orange Harry Potter Snitch-looking fruit) for the first time! 🤗 Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there-- including all the fur moms. ✊🏻

  • Gotta love a friend who doesn't even hesitate to share a gigantic noodle soup lunch with me! 😍🍜
@ginagariano & I had a tasty #budaejjigae & spicy seafood #jjambbong at @leehousefamily today. Totally satisfied my craving for spam, spice and soup. Though, could've had 3x more spam 🤤❤️ lol

  • These truffle grana padano fries with garlic aioli were like the cherry on top of an amazing menu tasting at @cactusclubcafe tonight! 😍 Our group tried port wine salmon, braised chicken tacos, a tabbouleh avocado bowl, short ribs & oxtail ravioli 🙏🏻 and we learned about the #CactusClub's impressive test kitchen and process for rolling out new dishes to its 30 locations across the country. Basically - it's not easy, they roll out slowly, and they don't rush anything. 👌🏻 Gotta love the consistency here.
