Tidbits: Notes from Edmonton's Epicurean Scene

  • Two Asian restaurants have recently opened up in the city - Sweet Mango (9120 82 Avenue) and Moon Garden (10117 Jasper Avenue). They haven't received as much press as their also-green counterparts Bacon and Skinny Legs and Cowgirls, but hopefully once the hype of those two bistros die down, more attention can be paid to these eateries.

  • Gleaned from Where Edmonton, Mr. Mike's Steakhouse & Bar, apparently Canada's oldest steakhouse chain, will be setting up shop in West Edmonton Mall in June. With the success of The Keg, Lux, and Ruth's Chris, it seems Edmonton's appetite for steaks is growing.

  • It seems I was mistaken in my assumption that Leva Cafe (11053 86 Avenue) had been taken over - it was simply under renovation. Check it out for their artisan gelato!

  • In other coffee shop news, da Capo Caffe (8738 109 Street) is now open, courtesy of City Palate. According to their blog, they are in the midst of expanding their food menu: "we are introducing Vino, Prosecco and Antipasto Fridays, Pizza Napoletana Saturdays and a breakfast frittata panino." Sounds delicious!
