Edo Elves Giveaway!

Since the holiday season is so near, I thought this uplifting story about Edo Japan sending elves out into Edmonton to perform random acts of kindness would be appropriate to get everyone into the holiday cheer mood! Little known fact, Edo Japan is an Alberta made venture, started in 1979 in Calgary to make fresh and hot Japanese Teppan-style cooking accessible to all diners, by placing this dining concept in food courts and suburban shopping malls.

Bloom Cookies Bloomin' Awesome

Oatmeal Stout
I had first heard about Bloom Cookies from @thepolishviking and decided to pick up a few bags at @CityMarket104 when I first got the chance. They make all vegan cookies, including one vegan and gluten free option, and sell them at the farmers market in bags of three. They have a few flavours that are always available such as chocolate chip, while other flavours rotate, along with a feature flavor of the week.

2 Hour Eatathon at Asian Hot Pot Express

Hot Pot Burner
Although I have had hot pot before, I’d never had it outside of the female humans family home. So when Grammie asked where we wanted to go to celebrate the male humans birthday, we opted to try Asian Hot Pot Express. Located in Chinatown, just around the corner from Hong Kong Bakery, my favorite bakery in Chinatown, it’s a small space, filled with tables with heating elements at each seat. Grammie informed us that unlike other hot pot restaurants, Asian Hot Pot Express allows each diner to have their own hot pot, meaning that you can order any cooking liquid that you want, don’t have to fight for space in the pot, or risk nicking someone else’s food.
