Madison’s Grill (Union Bank Inn) – Edmonton, Alberta

Monday, August 10th, 2015

We got up really early during one of our last trips to Edmonton and was really hungry. I didn’t want to go to a coffee shop, so we walked up and down Jasper Avenue for a while, and right when Madison’s Grill opened, we were pretty much right outside. We went in and they sat […]

Hoang Long Noodle House – Edmonton, Alberta

Monday, May 11th, 2015

We often stop by West Edmonton Mall when we go visit Edmonton, even though we may have nothing to get there or anything. This time, we just walked a circle and the decided we will get a quick bowl of pho before heading home. Located right inside the mall – outside of the supermarket we […]

Dynasty Century Palace – Edmonton, Alberta

Monday, May 11th, 2015

Recently, we traveled for a day trip to Edmonton in search of a good dim sum place where we kind of stumbled upon Dynasty Century Palace which was located on the second floor of a large building right on 105th Avenue. In fact, it’s quite hard to miss! The location is large with lots of […]

Harvest Room at Fairmont Hotel Macdonald – Edmonton, Alberta

Monday, January 5th, 2015

During our stay at the Fairmont Hotel Edmonton, we decided we would eat our breakfast there and then venture around Edmonton before taking off and starting the journey back to Calgary. We figured we’d grab our breakfast at the Harvest Room the restaurant on their main lobby. We were seated immediately, and it’s a small […]

Tres Carnales Taqueria – Edmonton, Alberta

Monday, December 29th, 2014

We were thinking about a quick and simple dinner when we stumbled into Tres Carnales Taqueria which we’ve heard of by Food Network’s “You Gotta Eat Here”, and like always, John Catucci’s recommendations haven’t failed us yet! We love this place! We started our meal with their Sopa de Tortilla which is a soup I […]

Zenari’s – Edmonton, Alberta

Monday, December 29th, 2014

I was in downtown Edmonton one morning and thought I needed some sugar for breakfast. I walked by Zenari’s a few times before I just wandered inside to order some food! This little place is located right across from Holt Renfrew on the main level. It’s pretty easy to find! I decided I was going […]

Fairmont Hotel Macdonald – Edmonton, Alberta

Monday, December 29th, 2014

I love historic hotels and Fairmont has a bunch of them that are spectacular! We got to stay overnight at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald in their standard room which they call Fairmont Room. It was a decent room, it’s not huge but it’s comfortable. The lobby wasn’t large, but they do have the pool/spa facilities […]

Bak Hauk Orient Delight – Sherwood Park, Alberta

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

We were driving across Edmonton when we ventured into Sherwood Park and found ourselves hungry. We stumbled upon Bak Hauk Orient Delight kind of in a strip plaza. There’s tons of parking here and the restaurant is very spacious in size. I love places with Hokkigai which is surf clams, so I had to order […]

Tacos La Mexicana – Edmonton, Alberta

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

We originally wanted to eat something else along Whyte Ave, and it was full – so we wandered around for a little while when we walked into Tacos La Mexicana. On the wall, there’s a board of all the “compliments” they get. So, it was quite promising. The restaurant is very little and it doesn’t […]

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Edmonton Airport – Nisku, Alberta

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

We were lucky to unwind a week in Edmonton, Alberta where we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express – Edmonton International Airport which is just outside of the actual city in Nisku/Leduc. The hotel is easy to find and it’s right by the train tracks – which could be noisy when the train goes by. […]
