Review: NWT Brewing Company

3905 Franklin Avenue, Yellowknife, Website

NW Brewing 1

Date of Visit – April, 2017

The NWT Brewing Company has the distinction of the being Canada’s most northern brewery. I found it on-line just before a recent visit to Yellowknife and made it a point to visit so that I could sample their various brews. Their web-site only listed four varieties but it turns out they make quite a few more. As they also have a pub that serves food, I decided to make an afternoon of it… Continue reading “Review: NWT Brewing Company”

Review: Diamante – Yellowknife, NWT

1-483 Range Lake Road, Yellowknife – Website

Diamante 1

Date of Visit: October, 2015

 

I have wanted to try Diamante for quite a while now, but my schedules on other visits to Yellowknife have never allowed it until now. I did read one rather discouraging Zomato review of the place but I am happy to report that my experience was much better… Continue reading “Review: Diamante – Yellowknife, NWT”

Review: Vietnamese Noodle House – Yellowknife, NWT

4609 50 Ave, Yellowknife – Facebook

VNH 1

Date of Visit: October, 2015

 

This is the oldest of Yellowknife’s two Vietnamese restaurants, and I recall it from a visit a good 5 or 6 years ago when I was staying in a hotel nearby. On this trip the territorial capital I stopped by for an early supper and had much the same sort of experience as my first; that is to say, a meal that was not bad, but not especially great either… Continue reading “Review: Vietnamese Noodle House – Yellowknife, NWT”

Review: Sushi North – Yellowknife, NWT

4910-50 Franklin Ave., Yellowknife – Website

Sushi N 1

Date of Visit: October, 2015

 

An advertisement I saw for this restaurant specified that it was a ‘take-out’ place and I initially had no intention of visiting until the concierge of my hotel told me that they do, in fact, have tables for customers. She also told me, however, that the food was not as good as at the other, more established, Japanese restaurant in town. I can say, after trying both that she was decidedly wrong on this point and I found Sushi North to have great food at a very reasonable price… Continue reading “Review: Sushi North – Yellowknife, NWT”

Review: Coyote’s Steakhouse and Lounge

484 Range Lake Rd, Yellowknife – Website

Coyote's 1

Date of Visit: October, 2015

I visited Coyote’s a few years ago but only for drinks. The place has two parts; a fairly nice bar on the one side of the building, and a full menu restaurant on the other. On this visit, I went for dinner with the intention of having a large steak but I got side-tracked by the appetizer selection and opted to try a series of these instead. Unfortunately, I rather regretted my choice… Continue reading “Review: Coyote’s Steakhouse and Lounge”

Review: The Kilt and Castle – Yellowknife, NWT

5019 49th St., Yellowknife – Facebook

Kilt and Castle 1

Date of Visit: October, 2015

 

I first saw this place in September of this year and I was surprised I had not noticed it before until I learned that it had just opened a month earlier. I didn’t get to stop by on that particular trip to Yellowknife but, on my next, I was able to visit twice and had both a good meal a very nice time… Continue reading “Review: The Kilt and Castle – Yellowknife, NWT”

Review: Sushi Café – Yellowknife, NWT

5309 Franklin Ave., Yellowknife – Facebook

Sushi C 1

Date of Visit: October, 2015

 

Yellowknife has two Sushi restaurants and this was said to be the best by those I asked. I ended up visiting both places during the course of a tow day layover in the City but I have to say that I could not agree with the assessments I received. This place was a bit of a disappointment, all told… Continue reading “Review: Sushi Café – Yellowknife, NWT”

Review: Red Apple Restaurant

4701 Franklin Avenue, Yellowknife

Red App 1

Date of Visit: October 3, 2015

 

The Red Apple is fairly close to a hotel I stayed in overnight and it was handy for a quick spot of breakfast one morning, I actually ate here (again for breakfast) many, many years ago and it doesn’t look to have changed a great deal in the meantime. Still, it is a pretty good place for cheap meal… Continue reading “Review: Red Apple Restaurant”

Review: A Taste of Saigon – Yellowknife, NWT

4913-50th Street, Yellowknife
TOS 1

Date of Visit: October 2, 2015

This Vietnamese restaurant, one of two in Yellowknife, appears to be quite a popular place. I arrived at about 1 pm, towards the end of the lunch rush (or so I thought), but every table was full and there was still a line-up inside the door. I left, returning about 45 minutes later, and was very glad I did come back as I enjoyed an excellent meal… Continue reading “Review: A Taste of Saigon – Yellowknife, NWT”

Review: L’Atitudes Restaurant, Yellowknife

5010 49 St, Yellowknife, Yellowknife

L'Atitudes 01

Date of Visit: October 2, 2015

This restaurant is part of the Yellowknife Inn but, rather than being inside the hotel itself, it is located in the Center Square Mall to which the hotel is attached. I probably wouldn’t have found myself here except that I was booked into the Inn during a layover in Yellowknife and it was a handy spot for breakfast.
