It took me long enough, but after almost four years, I finally bought a new phone! The push came only when the music stopped working on my old device, but I have to say, it’s certainly nice to have a functioning camera and the possibility of downloading apps! On to this week’s food notes:
- I missed this last week, but Cookie Love’s second location inside the Sutton Place Hotel, Cookie Love Café, is now open!
- Liane shared the news that Sabor Divino is expanding next door with a pizza concept called Urbano Pizza Co.
- Speaking of pizza, Phil began his new pizza odyssey. The first installment pits Neapolitan pies from The Rock against those at The Parlour.
- Cindy posted her first experience at Solstice Seasonal Cuisine.
- I’m sorry to hear that Chinatown’s Uyen Uong didn’t make it, but I’m happy to see that its replacement, Gui Lin Noodle House, looks promising.
- Check out the Edmontonians on televised cooking shows this
weekseason – Shane Chartrand on Chopped Canada, and Kenya Hushagen on Masterchef Canada.
- Food for thought: how could we address Edmonton’s food deserts?
- Not loving your morning coffee? A way to improve its taste might be as easy as changing the colour of your mug.
- Mack and I returned to Route 99 for the first time since our wedding. What else would we have but poutine?
Our usual at Route 99

Shane told me he was on air March 7th? Has that changed?
Nope, it hasn’t – I’ve made the change, thanks for pointing it out!
Interesting post on food deserts….. the map in the website is misleading though. It shows Oliver/DT as having no supermarket/grocery within 2 kms while there is a Save-on on 109st north of Jasper.
Similarly, the Old Strathcona area shows up as a ‘desert’ while there is a Save-On on 99 st and a Safeway (although a small & crappy one) at 109 st and Whyte.
Still it is an important issue and probably matters a lot for many folks in the North-East and Gold Bar areas.
