  • Features of Chinese Cuisine

    Apr 11, 19 • 145 Views • My BlogComments Off on Features of Chinese Cuisine

    China is the most populous country in the world, along with the vastness and diversity of products and climate, leading to a clear difference between food culture regions. Therefore, the cuisine of China is extremely diverse and unique but still has its own...

  • PAMPA’S SECOND ANNUAL BACON FEAST

    Apr 7, 16 • 407 Views • BRAZILIAN, EDMONTON, EVENT, GLUTEN FREE, STEAKHOUSEComments Off on PAMPA’S SECOND ANNUAL BACON FEAST

    Edmonton, for some reason, has become bacon crazy in the last couple of years. Did I just say, “for some reason”? The obvious reason: bacon is THAT delicious. What with Baconfest, an influx of bacon-inspired cocktails (think Caesars), and more and more...

  • Urban China

    Apr 5, 16 • 404 Views • ASIAN, CHINESE, DIM SUM, EDMONTON, REVIEWComments Off on Urban China

    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...

  • BRUNCH AT HOTEL SELKIRK (FORT EDMONTON PARK)

    Mar 1, 16 • 285 Views • AMERICAN/CANADIAN, BRUNCH, EDMONTON, FOUR GLASSES, REVIEWComments Off on BRUNCH AT HOTEL SELKIRK (FORT EDMONTON PARK)

    I haven’t been to Fort Edmonton Park since I was just a teenager, which is something that I plan on rectifying this year once the weather gets a little nicer. Taking a step back in time and providing a living history experience is Fort Edmonton Park’s...

  • 97 Hot Pot (Lunch)

    Jan 6, 16 • 396 Views • ASIAN, CHINESE, EDMONTON, FOUR GLASSES, HOT POT, REVIEWComments Off on 97 Hot Pot (Lunch)

    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...

    Nov 19, 15 • 308 Views • AMERICAN/CANADIAN, EDMONTON, EVENT, WINEComments Off on 2015 Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival

    This year was not my first time attending the Rocky Mountain Wine and Food Festival, nor will it be my last. With more than 130 wineries, more than 180 breweries and distilleries, and 31 restaurants and food vendors in attendance, this year’s festival took...

  • The Parlour Italian Kitchen & Bar

    Nov 6, 15 • 200 Views • CHARCUTERIE, EDMONTON, FOUR GLASSES, GLUTEN FREE, PIZZAComments Off on The Parlour Italian Kitchen & Bar

    I have a particularly bad habit of neglecting to review restaurants that I regularly frequent. Which is silly, of course—if I’m eating there all the time, then there must be a reason why I keep coming back. Parlour, by Century Hospitality Group, is one...

  • Buco Pizzeria + Vino

    Sep 16, 15 • 214 Views • EDMONTON, FOUR GLASSES, GLUTEN FREE, ITALIAN, PIZZA, REVIEWComments Off on Buco Pizzeria + Vino

    A great pizza is a wonderful thing. With Neapolitan style on the rise (think Famoso and Rosso), it’s only natural for more pizza places to pop up throughout the city with their own attempts at a traditional Italian pizza. Buco is St. Albert’s...

  • LOBSTER SUMMER AT THE KEG

    Jul 22, 15 • 274 Views • AMERICAN/CANADIAN, EDMONTON, GLUTEN FREE, SEAFOOD, STEAK, STEAKHOUSE, WINEComments Off on LOBSTER SUMMER AT THE KEG

    Seafood. Steak. Wine. Few things give me greater pleasure, especially when I have access to all three at once. Which is why the Lobster Summer tasting event at The Keg was such a pleasant (and mouth-watering) experience. On July 16th, I attended an event at...
