Food Notes for October 24, 2022

Presenting: Edmonton Food Faves We Crave

While both Linda and I have maintained long-standing blogs which include weekly suggestions for dining options, we are often still asked for recommendations and to share our “favourite” restaurants. As a result, some time ago, Linda and I started to think about how we might put together a list of some of our favourite places. was born, with 15 categories of our #YEGFoodFaves, with three suggestions under each.

We want to make it clear that this list (like all “best of” or “top” lists) is completely subjective to our tastes, not at all exhaustive, and reflects our biases.

To help launch our list, we’ve put together an “Edmonton Food Faves We Crave Passport” you are invited to follow for a chance to win prizes, while supporting local restaurants and eating some pretty tasty food along the way!
From Oct.19-Nov. 16, 2022, visit places on our Food Faves list and share about where you’ve gone and what dishes you’ve tried to be entered to win gift cards to our favourite places! More details about how to enter are on the page.

We hope you’ll enjoy eating your way through #YEGFoodFaves as much as we enjoyed putting together our list!

What I Ate

  • We started our month of #YEGFoodFaves with a return to King Noodle House. I love noodle soups year-round (as evidenced from the list!), but the cravings especially kick in when the weather takes a turn. We made the brisk walk over on Friday to pick up our take-out of my go-to Bun Bo Hue.
