Folk Fest food (clockwise): fried gnocchi with tomato sauce from The Crazy Italian (satisfying but a bit salty); split peas and spicy lentils with injera from Langano Skies (very flavourful); potato chips from Lunchpail Catering (needed more dill dipping sauce; otherwise very average); fried caul...

Just Desserts: Cookie Monster Milkshake at Re:Grub
Posted
Decadent brownie and chocolate chip cookie from @sugaredandspiced. Easily the best brownie I have ever had (short of my mom’s) and the cookie had the right crunch-chew-chocolate ratio. #yeg #yegfood #yegeats #yegfoodie #sugaredandspiced #bakery #brownie #cookie A post shared by Paula E. Kirman (...

Burger from Bully Food Truck
Posted
This burger from @bullyfoodtruck was so excellent. A perfectly seasoned patty with garlic aioli, picked onions, and picked. I could not really detect the brisket cracklings unless they were incorporated into the patty itself. Sweet brioche bun. I held the cheese. #yeg #burger #beef #yegfood #yege...

Masala Dosa from La Tastebuds
Posted
This is a doozy of a dosa. Filled with potatoes, and served with two chutneys and a vegetable soup. #yeg #yegfood #yegfoodie #yegeats A post shared by Paula E. Kirman (@livingsanctuary) on Aug 25, 2018 at 12:31pm PDT

Beef Dip at Brewsters

Beef dip - the roast beef was piled high with tangy onions and savoury horseradish aïoli in a pretzel bun. #yeg #yegfood #brewsters #yegfoodie #nofilter #beefdip #sandwich A post shared by Paula E. Kirman (@livingsanctuary) on Aug 4, 2018 at 5:41pm PDT

Taro Bubble Milk at Chatime
Posted
There’s a new Taiwanese bubble tea and snack place on Whyte Ave. Chatime is huge and spacious. My regular size Taro bubble milk with pearls was the right size and taste. You can pick toppings and how much sugar and ice you want. #yeg #bubbletea #taro #yegfood #yegbubbletea #yegfoodie #whyteave A ...

Breakfast for Lunch: Smoked Salmon Breakfast Sandwich at Cafe Leva
Posted
Smoked salmon breakfast sandwich, with lots of salmon, avocado, red onion, and a few (too few) capers. I held the cream cheese. The toasted multigrain bagel was terrific. #yeg #yegfood #yegfoodie #yegeats #cafeleva #smokedsalmon A post shared by Paula E. Kirman (@livingsanctuary) on Aug 4, 2018 ...

Sandwiches at Donna's Eatery
Posted
These were the biggest sandwiches I have ever encountered in Edmonton. Turkey and roast beef, made to order in a combo with pop and fries and onion rings, respectively. Donna’s is way on the west edge of the city but well worth the trip. #yeg #yegfood #yegfoodie #yegeats #sandwiches @donnaseatery...

Vegging Out: Beyond Meat Burger at A&W
Posted
I finally tried A&W’s Beyond Meat burger. It lived up to what I’ve been reading, that it tastes almost just like a beef burger. The texture is lighter and softer than ground beef. Also, it comes with mayo, so if you’re vegan you’ll want to hold that. #yeg #vegan #vegetarian #a&w #beyondme...
