I am an Ottawa chowhounder coming to Edmonton for work. I'll have two dinners and two breakfasts to fill....I am staying at the Westin, but can walk relatively long distances.
So far, I am very interested in Padmanadi (I am not a vegan, but don't eat very much meat) for dinner one night. It seems I have to try the Ginger beef.
Since I rarely get to have good Asian food at home, I would like either good, inexpensive sushi, or any inexpensive Thai, Chinese or Vietnamese. I love spicy food.
I would really like to find healthy, whole-grain baked goods for breakfast. I don't need to sit down for breakfast - bakery recommendations are more than welcome.
Are there any specialties in Edmonton that I must try?
And as an aside, has anyone seen anything about a Frozen Yogurt place called Menchies opening on Whyte Ave? There is one in Toronto now, and while it is surely made from entirely chemical, artificial materials, I love it!
Thanks for the advice in advance.
