YEGburger – A Great Burger with Fresh Ingredients

This one is definitely a hidden gem.  It is located in an out-of-the-way strip mall in north Edmonton.  I was tipped off by another great burger lover, Mr. Gerry Gratziano.  When he recommends a burger place, you listen! If you have tried the burgers at Re:Grub then you will appreciate YEGburger. So besides being hidden away in a discreet location, this place has another unique quality – everything on the menu is Halal or Zabiha.  (Beef bacon is available as well) The owners

Native Delights

Here is a little sharing about me… I am at least ¼ Cree on my father’s side.  My family always told us not to tell anyone about our Aboriginal roots because we would be looked at differently.  I never met my Kookum and that fact makes me sad.

Denizen Hall – Play With Your Food!

The ingredients are all top quality. The name for me brought about visions of a “Soda Jerk” behind a chrome counter with an ice cream freezer and a pile of milkshake blenders. You won’t find an actual Soda Jerk here. The decor has lots of bottles of soda everywhere and comfy booths and seating throug

The Nest – Nait’s Hidden Gem

So NAIT has one of the best culinary programs and that means that the resto-bar should be fabulous right?  Right! It is your typical gastro-pub setup and decor.  Newly renovated.  Very cozy, with some pool tables and dart boards.  Your menus are already at the table and you seat yourself. I am a huge beer fanatic and along with some local micro-breweries (Alley Kat) they had one of my favourites on tap which is a Belgian White that pairs well with just about anything, Shock T
