A Taste of FEED THE SOUL Dining Week Food Tour hosted by @lindork (Jan. 27, 2024)

HI’m super excited to announce that I’m partnering with FEED THE SOUL Dining Week to host A Taste of FEED THE SOUL DINING WEEK Food Tour coming up on Saturday, Jan. 27, 2024.

Get tickets to my tour! This is a preview of three delicious Caribbean restaurants in downtown Edmonton that are participating in FEED THE SOUL Dining Week this February.

FEED THE SOUL Dining Week returns for its second year Feb 2-11, 2024.

This festival was created to showcase the city’s diverse Black-owned food scene and highlight the positive influence the African Diaspora has on the local hospitality industry. It features bold, flavour-packed, traditional offerings at 13 Black-owned restaurants, food retailers and makers.

I’m hosting a FEED THE SOUL food crawl featuring downtown Caribbean restaurants before the official Dining Week kicks off.
Participants will get to sample smaller portions of three Dining Week Deals, meet chefs and restaurant owners, and learn more about this important festival held during Black Futures Month.

I’ve been hosting food and art tours around the city since 2017 and am so thrilled to highlight just some of the amazing Black-owned restaurants and business owners in Edmonton as part of FEED THE SOUL Dining Week.

I hope you’ll purchase a ticket to experience A Taste of FEED THE SOUL Dining Week with me on January 27, 2024!!

Other things to note:

  • There ARE meat and vegetarian options available at each stop. Unfortunately we CANNOT accommodate gluten-free, vegan, or other dietary restrictions.
  • This is a WINTER WALKING TOUR! Each location is located not far from one another in downtown Edmonton but we will still be walking outside between meals. Please bundle up. If the forecast looks like Deep Freeze weather, we may postpone or get a bus. But we are a Winter City—let’s embrace it (safely, with layers!)
  • Spots are limited and my food tours typically sell out so be sure to get your tickets! 


FEED THE SOUL Dining Week returns for its second year Feb 2-11, 2024. This festival was created by a volunteer-led and driven team dedicated to promoting and offering safe spaces for local Black-owned businesses to flourish and grow, this is accomplished by the development of community events, new channels and high-profile platforms to amplify and support Black-owned businesses in Edmonton and surrounding areas.

FEED THE SOUL YEG celebrates and amplifies Edmonton’s Black-owned businesses, particularly in the food and beverage sector. Their mission is to create a more inclusive and diverse culinary scene in the city while supporting local Black entrepreneurs. They aim to showcase the rich cultural contributions of the Black community to Edmonton’s hospitality industry and address barriers to the success of Black-owned businesses.

I Explore Edmonton as a full-time job! I love eating all the food, finding all the art, experiencing events, exploring neighbourhoods, and telling everyone about it! So much so that in 2017 I started organizing walking tours around the city. I took people to Instagrammable Walls (murals/art!) and stopped at local businesses for great food. I’ve even done e-scooter wall + food crawls and e-bike food tours!
