Tiffin Fresh Kitchen – Fresh, modern, stylish East Indian cuisine, Edmonton, AB

East Indian cuisine is a mystery to me.  Unknown spices and curries are foreign not only to my taste buds, to their names are unfamiliar to my ear.  Yet, I’m drawn to the newness and flavourful suprises of the dishes whenever I get to experience them. Our friends Harold and […]

Tokiwa Ramen – quirky Japanese eatery serves up delicious (but limited) dishes

The last time I got my hair cut, Fatima, a fellow ‘foody’ and I were talking about new restaurants we’d tried recently. I mentioned we had just been to Tokiwa Ramen, a new Japanese ramen Japanese noodle soup house in Edmonton’s new, fashionable Brewery District.   Our lunch companions had discovered […]

Northern Chicken, Edmonton, AB – a new favourite

Northern Chicken, Edmonton, AB – a new favourite

It’s taken us a long time to try Northern Chicken, frustrating, since it was named one of the best new restaurants in Edmonton by a local magazine not too long ago. Fried chicken has never been top-of-mind when it’s time to adventure into the world of a new dining experience.  […]

My motorcycle friends and I have been huge fans of Jaker’s Bar & Grill for years. Located in Great Falls, MT, each year, a bunch of us in Edmonton ponder making a run to Great Falls just to dine at this Montana steakhouse.  Jaker’s claim to fame is that when […]

Adventures in travel dining.  Mom’s Cafe, Salina, UT. – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

We’d been driving all morning non-stop, and now it was time to refuel the Audi and grab a late lunch. Exiting I-15, we pulled off to Salina, UT, which looked to be the stereotype American small town. – a main street with businesses, a gas station, and not much else. It’s […]

It’s minus twenty-something degrees Celsius, and it’s been snowing hard all day.  A tall windrow of snow is piled high along the centreline […]

Max’s Filipino Restaurant, Edmonton, AB

It’s been quite a few months since we last dined at Max’s Restaurant in Edmonton’s west end.  Max’s specializes in Filipino cuisine, and as I’ve described to many foody friends unfamiliar with food from this part of the world, it’s kinda like Chinese food. Kinda like Chinese food, but not.  […]
