Just a reminder that our next Truck Stop is taking place this Thursday, July 25 downtown at the Boyle Renaissance. It’s an opportunity to try out four of Edmonton’s newest trucks and explore the new facility in The Quarters. Hope to see you there! On to this week’s food notes:
- Fort Edmonton Park has organized a “Food Through the Ages” event running at the site from August 3-5, 2013. Every day, visitors will have an option to work for their food, through a period-appropriate chore, and will be awarded with a period snack. Interesting idea of incorporating a participatory history lesson with food!
- Looking for something new to eat at K-Days? Liane writes that the deep-fried apple caramel pie was awarded the “best new food” on the midway this year.
- Liane provides a backgrounder to Rge Rd, the newest restaurant to open in the city.
- The Journal reviewed The Burg – it’s been hit or miss for diners, so good to hear they had a positive experience.
- Andrea posted about her experience at a recent Dishcrawl in the Southgate area.
- Sustainable Food Edmonton is looking to raise $250,000 to bring City Farm back.
- I’ve been dreaming about a Diner en Blanc in Edmonton since we were inspired to pull off the pedway pop-up last year, but it’s nice to see the event done closer to home – in Calgary, at Central Memorial Park in early July.
- Since Credo began closing early, I’ve had to look for another post-work meeting place. Though Roast does the job, it’s a bit inconsistent. THIS Place (10382 105 Street), however, has become my new favourite. On a hot summer’s day, what’s better than a popsicle and a freshly-squeezed lemonade?

I strong-armed Mack into the Vietnamese iced coffee popsicle since I already ordered – so unique!
- We used up some free pizza vouchers at the Whyte Avenue location of Famoso on the weekend. I’m happy to say it was a much better experience than our visit to the South Common branch.

- Mack and I have also been craving ice cream and gelato like nothing else this past week! It meant a walk over to Cococo on 124 Street over the weekend – not a bad way to work for a treat!
