Review: Haweli

10220 103 St. NW, Edmonton – Website

Haweli 1

Date of Visit: July 14, 2015

I tried a couple of times to have dinner at this place after seeing it near my hotel but was initially thwarted; first, I was sidetracked by a Tapas Bar that happened to be on the way and, on the second attempt, on a Sunday, I discovered they close that day only after I arrived. I finally made it for lunch on the very last day of my visit to Edmonton… Continue reading “Review: Haweli”

Review: Craft Beer Market

10013 101A Ave. NW, Edmonton – Website

Craft Beer Market 1

Date of Visit: July 12, 2015

I spent a pleasant few hours at this establishment one afternoon, not merely because it is a nice place, but because they boast an impressive 100 different beers on tap. I noted, during that visit, that they do a brunch on Sundays and so I made a point of checking it out on the second to last day of my vacation… Continue reading “Review: Craft Beer Market”

Review: Sabor

10220 103 St. NW, Edmonton – Website

Sabor 1

Date of Visit: July 11, 2015

Sabor is right around the corner from the hotel I was staying at in downtown Edmonton but it initially escaped my notice as most of my explorations thus far had been in the other direction. I passed it on my way back from lunch one afternoon and, after I saw that it has a Tapas menu, I switched my original supper plans and came here instead… Continue reading “Review: Sabor”

Review: Blue Plate Diner

10145 104 St., Edmonton – Website

Blue Plate Diner 1

Date of Visit: July 11, 2015

When I was planning my visit to Edmonton, I made a not if this place as the online menu listed a Shepherd’s Pie actually made with lamb instead of beef. I rather forgot about while exploring other places but then came across it as I was strolling through the summer Farmer’s market one morning. It was actually well over an hour until the lunch service began (and I’d had a breakfast), but the place has a number of local beers on tap and so I was happy to wait… Continue reading “Review: Blue Plate Diner”

Review: Rose and Crown Pub

10235 101 St., Edmonton – Website

Rose and Crown 1

Date of Visit: July 9, 2015

I arrived at this place after a 3 minute walk from my hotel on a very, very hot afternoon. Within minutes of being seated, I discovered that the establishment is owned by the same group, and has exactly the same drink and food menu, as the Sherlock Holes Pub I visited the day before. I was a little bit disappointed by this but it was over 30 degrees outside and I decided to stay… Continue reading “Review: Rose and Crown Pub”

Review: All Happy Family Restaurant

10011 106 Ave., Edmonton – Website

All Happy Family 1

Date of Visit: July 8, 2015

I saw this place from a taxi while being driven back to my hotel in downtown Edmonton and a few days later I walked back for a spot of supper. The walk wasn’t all that far but it did take me through a rather tatty neighborhood and, in the end, my effort wasn’t well-rewarded… Continue reading “Review: All Happy Family Restaurant”

Review: The Underground Tap and Grill

10004 Jasper Ave., Edmonton – Website

Underground Grill 1

Date of Visit: July 7, 2015

I found this place on the internet and, while I probably wouldn’t have been attracted by the menu especially, I saw that they offer 72 beers on tap. I love sampling different brews and I thought that I could spend a pleasant few hours doing so and also see what they could do for a nice supper as well… Continue reading “Review: The Underground Tap and Grill”
