    CafvinoVIP, a wine tasting event held by Schifer Imports on June 10th, 2013, brought together food aficionados, Edmonton personalities, and Twitter buffs as a way of celebrating (and tasting) the newly imported coffee-infused wine. Schifer Imports, an...

  • Soda Jerks Burgers and Bottles

    Apr 19, 13 • 91 Views • AMERICAN/CANADIAN, BURGERS, EDMONTON, EVENTComments Off on Soda Jerks Burgers and Bottles

    I’d never been to or heard of Soda Jerks until the other day, so I don’t know what I was expecting. Something similar to Fatburger, perhaps? I was pleasantly surprised. Soda Jerks is a delightful, modern restaurant that – simply put – sells great...

    Mar 25, 13 • 84 Views • AMERICAN/CANADIAN, EDMONTON, REVIEW, STEAKHOUSE, WINEComments Off on RUTH’S CHRIS STEAK HOUSE

    If you want the fine dining experience, you have to pay the price and Ruth’s Chris (while pricey) manages to tick all of the fine dining boxes: fabulous food, attentive service, and a beautifully romantic restaurant ambience. I did a bit of research...

    Mar 19, 13 • 88 Views • EDMONTON, FRENCH, REVIEW, WINEComments Off on THE CREPERIE

    In celebration of Edmonton’s fantastic Downtown Dining Week event (#DTDW), hosted by the Downtown Business Association, I decided to forgo the new and the trendy (for now), and retry an old French favourite: The Creperie. I hadn’t been to this...

    Pampa is one of my favourite restaurants in the city and, despite the hefty price tag, serves up an impeccable dining experience that’s extremely difficult to beat. There’s buffets, there’s steakhouses…and then there’s Pampa. The...

  • TZIN WINE AND TAPAS

    Feb 27, 13 • 93 Views • EDMONTON, REVIEW, TAPAS, WINEComments Off on TZIN WINE AND TAPAS

    Tzin is a perfectly delightful hole-in-the-wall restaurant that serves amazing food from a selective yet professional Spanish tapas menu. My first impression of this restaurant (as you’ll have seen if you follow me on Twitter) was that it was...

  • URBAN DINER (DOWNTOWN)

    Feb 23, 13 • 78 Views • AMERICAN/CANADIAN, DINER, EDMONTON, REVIEWComments Off on URBAN DINER (DOWNTOWN)

    As one of the most talked-about brunch places in Edmonton, I figured it was past time that I investigated what Urban Diner had to offer prior to the 2pm lunch menu (the only menu I’ve ever ordered from). As Urbanspoon, reviews, and food blogs have...

  • Privada wine+tapas

    This restaurant was my birthday choice, simply because there’s no better thing than enjoying delicious tapas, delicate wines, and all kinds of cheeses in the dead of winter (especially in Canada). My expectations were high, based on the reviews and the...
