Tutti Frutti Invades Southgate Centre

Sleek new Tutti Frutti Southgate location
Tutti Frutti opened its second location in Edmonton, this time at Southgate Centre. Located in a store front just around the corner from The Bay, this location is smaller than it’s original Edmonton location, but has a sleeker look. Although the wall of frozen yogurt machines is clad in the same baby blue plexi like material, the orange ceiling, and crystal red chairs add eye-catching and refreshingly different bits of color.

The 2 S's at Khazana

A little bit of everything
We had never been to Khazana, but seized the opportunity to try it when a Groupon went on sale, even though our Groupon experiences have been hit and miss. Although the Groupon explicitly stated it wasn't valid for the buffet, the host steered us toward it, without even offerring us any menus.

Competitors - Phil Wilson, Teresa Lin and Michelle Peters Jones
This year, Events Edmonton decided to spice things up by tapping into the growing food community on social media by hosting a cook off between food tweeters and bloggers at the Taste of Edmonton, in conjunction with the ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen. The theme for this cook off was the best food truck entree using Albertan products supplied by Safeway.

Haweli Groupon A Miss

Mystery dips with bread of some ilk
It had been years since either of us had been to Haweli, and neither of us had been there other than during their lunch buffet. So we decided to buy their Groupon and make a dinner time visit. Upon arrival, it was obvious they were trying to drum up more suppertime business as there was only one table occupied in a very large space when we arrived. Although most places we go for Indian food wind up being buffet style, we welcomed the opportunity to order from the menu and not stuff ourselves silly for once. Even though we weren’t 100% certain of what everything was, we picked a few things that sounded familiar and went from there.

Humdrum at Continental Treat

Lamb chops with spaetzle
We had heard many things about Continental Treat Restaurant from friends and family, and had recently bought a Steal the Deal for the restaurant to give us an excuse to try it out. The evening we went, we went with a friend whose family is Czech, and although she had never dined there herself, was interested in seeing how it would measure up to her mother’s food.

Their menu was quite large and took a while to peruse, but we all managed to settle on different menu items so we could try a little bit of everything. Their portion sizes are not to be underestimated, as they are all quite large. However there was a theme to the evening other than large portions, and that was unfortunately that most of the food was bland.

Three Boars Eatery - Far From Boarish

Duck Rillette
Tucked away in the Garneau area, Three Boars Eatery focuses on providing a variety of beers as well as small plates of food made from fresh, local ingredients. It has a pub type atmosphere in a small space, unencumbered by the usual trappings of a pub such as the large wooden bar and a dark space.

Their menu changes on a regular basis, at least weekly if not daily. So be prepared to be adventurous, if you had a favorite dish on one visit, it might not be there on the next. They also have a large offering of beer, as well as other spirits.
