    Ever since I had to say goodbye to the love of my life (i.e. gluten), I’ve had to make do with poor substitutes and laughable facsimiles. The gluten free landscape has become more bountiful as of late, but the realm of wheat-free ramen has been fairly...

    Growing up (half) Chinese, I had my fair share of exposure to dim sum over the years. It was always a weekend brunch activity, where myself and my parents, or sometimes a huge portion of my Lee family clan, would head to our favourite dim sum restaurant and...

    Hot pot. I can never get enough–especially once the cold weather hits (although I’ve never been one to turn down a summer trip to Chili Hot Pot). I usually don’t branch away from my favourites but, when I heard that 97 Hot Pot offered a pared down...

    As my coworker so eloquently put it, “Chew chew! Climb aboard the Sushi Train!” Edmonton’s newest rotation sushi bar restaurant, Sushi Train, opened its doors on July 12th in a modest location by MacEwan University on 104 Street. The premise is simple:...

    Ten days of Taste of Edmonton is never enough. This year, the festival amped up their Sip ‘n Savour tent, offering cooking workshops, local flavours, pop-up events, and even a children’s tasting and exploration session. As always, there were plenty of...

    Jan 28, 14 • 26 Views • ASIAN, EDMONTON, JAPANESE, TWO GLASSESComments Off on HAKONE JAPANESE CUISINE

    There are, unfortunately, very few options for sushi on the North side of Edmonton. Sure, there are Tokyo Expresses and Mt. Fujis galore, but they’re a cheap alternative to the good stuff. We might not have West or East Coast quality sushi in our...
