  • There’s a new spot for ramen that just opened on the south side called Menjiro Ramen, located at 109, 2920 Calgary Trail.
  • Via Cindy, I just learned about a new Northern Chinese restaurant called Luscious Kitchen, located at Unit 2, 9261 34 Avenue.
  • Graham reports that the family behind Parkallen Retaurant has sold the building but hopes to reopen the restaurant elsewhere.
  • Prairie Noodle is hosting a “throwback to 2015” pop-up party on December 15, 2018, where they will be offering their ramen bowls at 2015 prices.
  • The second Fox Burger pop-up is scheduled for December 17, 2018 at Salz. Reservations are required.
  • The Tourtiere Baking Contest returns to Deep Freeze on January 13, 2019. Prizes will be awarded to the top three tourtieres! The deadline to enter is January 10.
  • Famoso is currently participating in a campaign for Mealshare – with every jar of Campania Tomato Sauce sold until December 31, 2018, meals will be provided to youth in Edmonton.
  • I wasn’t aware that The Hallway Cafe (located in City Hall) also has a suspended coffee/pay-it-forward program similar to The Nook Cafe!
  • A fire at Zar Zor restaurant in the north side is under investigation.
  • Graham submitted a rave review for Kanu.
  • Leduc was hoping for more from Wilfred’s.
  • Sharman recapped the latest Swine and Dine dinner prepared by Drift at the Shamrock Curling Club (their home over the winter).
  • Phil is the host of a new CBC web series called Fast Food that focuses on what chefs like to cook at home. The first episode features Chef Steven Brochu of Chartier.
  • A new kitchen facility has opened at NorQuest College to accommodate a Foundations of Cooking program. The centre will also host one-day cooking classes that are open to the public.
  • We’ve seen restaurants in the #yegfood scene move away from policies that eliminated tips – Grub Street has a breakdown of why this has been the trend in the US.
  • Trusted Freshness is a growing Edmonton-based vegetable greenhouse that operates on a franchising model.
  • We aren’t able to pop into King Noodle House as often as we used to, but it means we appreciate the Bun Bo Hue even more when we do make it in!
