Food Notes for November 25, 2013

Less than a week out from December, folks! It’s my favourite time of year, and I’m looking to finally put up the tree this weekend (Mack’s Christmas tolerance begins, of course, at the conclusion of American Thanksgiving). Hope you’re enjoying the start of festivities as well! On to this week’s food notes:

  • Looking forward to attending the first ever Hawker’s Market in Edmonton on November 30, 2013! Get your admission tickets in advance and save $5.
  • The Parlour (10334 Capital Boulevard), the newest Century Hospitality Group restaurant, will finally be opening up this weekend.
  • It looks like we can look forward to a December 19, 2013 opening of the Craft Beer Market downtown.
  • Liane gives us a sneak peek of the forthcoming North 53 restaurant. Their menu will offer “progressive Canadian” cuisine.
  • Lillian visited Coco Deep Fried Chicken, where the “K” in KFC stands for “Korean”!
  • Not surprisingly, the Journal wrote a positive review for the newest Cactus Club location in the city.
  • The Journal also profiled the GF Diner in Old Strathcona, the first restaurant in Edmonton offering an exclusively gluten-free menu.
  • Two Montreal-area servers share their twenty pet peeves about restaurant diners.
  • Was a documentary about jet-setting foodies really necessary? I guess it’s not too much of a stretch from the excess already shown on television.
  • We took in the first annual All is Bright on 124 Street on Saturday. They really went all out, with a street closure, massive stage, and a good-sized food and beverage area. It was great to see so many families out enjoying the activities, and several businesses participating as well.

  • I met up with Mack at Pho Tau Bay last week for lunch. Needless to say, it hit the spot.

  1. I have to admit that I’m one of those weirdo Jet Setting foodies when i’m on vacation, minus the private jet and Millions of dollars. But when I plan a vacation, I try to hit as many Michelin Star and 100 Top Restaurant in the World Restaurants as I can since we don’t have anything like that here in Edmonton. It’s definitely an experience.
