30 Valentine’s Date Ideas in Edmonton (2016)

I love Valentine’s Day! My husband Mike and I always make a point to celebrate (but we also celebrate year-round, really). I don’t mind the commercialization of it – if there’s another opportunity to spend time with my loved one, then why not? This year as Valentine’s Day falls on the Family Day long weekend, Mike and I will be heading out of town for our Valentine’s celebration, but in…

  • I haven't had a really good, loaded potato skin in a long time. So comforting. 🙏🏻 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! 🍔Thanks @chefdaveomar. 👌🏻

  • Banh xeo, shrimp chips and pho on the patio at @phoboyvk with @kathytrinhle today! ❤️☀️ Banh xeo is a Vietnamese fried pancake with pork, shrimp and beansprout filling. It's delish. 🙌🏻 While in the area I also scouted out some more #IGWallsofYEG, planning the next #photowalk for #WhyteAve @oldstrathcona for early July! Stay tuned for details. 📸☺️

  • On my way to Calgary for a few days of @socialwest and *had* to stop at @petersdrivein for a 🍔 🍟 and 🍌🥛. 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻
#SocialWest is the largest digital/social media marketing conference in the Prairies. I can't wait to learn from industry experts + present too! I'm delivering a session tomorrow on Instagram + Snapchat Stories! I call it, #StoriesTelling. 🤓🙊

  • 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 📸 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?! 🙌🏻

  • 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! 🐷🐔🍳😍 @ChefPaulShufelt & @ChefCowan came up with some really tasty dishes using bacon, chicken, asparagus and lentils. 👌🏻 In the end, Chef Cowan took the title 🏆, 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. Follow them for details! 🐷 🥓

  • New on the blog 📸 #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. 💚 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! 🤗

  • Can we take a moment to talk about the greatest crostini there ever was? 🙏🏻 This tomato, ricotta, mint, chili crostini from @uccellinoyeg will make you moan in delight, it is sooo good. 😭❤️😭 Uccellino was an excellent pick for a girls dinner last night (or, any dinner, any occasion). Thanks @prettythingsyeg @heyvanessaleigh for being so agreeable and letting me pick our plates! 🤗🍽

  • Today was SO fun! 🤗 My friend @prettythingsyeg and I hosted an #IGWallsofYEG #instawalk checking out some beautiful walls in downtown Edmonton as part of @makeityeg's #100in1DayYEG #citybuilding event! We had a group of 14, walked about 7km, and made stops at 10 walls. I'll be blogging photos and locations of a bunch of #InstagrammableWalls around the city this week and hope to host another tour soon! Thanks to everyone who came out. ❤️
