Food Notes for January 8, 2018

I can’t believe it’s already a week into the New Year! I was able to have a nice (albeit short) break over the holidays – I hope you were able to have the same rejuvenating time away! Lots to catch up on though:

  • Over the weekend, we finally had the chance to check out some new places in Old Strathcona, including Pip, the third restaurant from the folks behind The Next Act and Meat. It’s a cute spot, with a simple but well-executed menu. Mack enjoyed their traditional eggs benedict, while their classic grilled cheese and tomato soup hit the spot for me.

  • We also headed to Ohana Donuterie, which opened in December. Although there are now several bakeries specializing in doughnuts, Ohana stands out with their made-to-order treats. We can attest that the cinnamon sugar and vanilla custard was delicious!

    I think you mean “Linda is paid to cover the expansion of Popeye’s in the Edmonton area,” since she’s being paid to do it and the story is all about their newest location in Sherwood Park.
