For you soda connoisseurs...

I recently discovered that the London Drugs in Sherwood Park carries Pop Shoppe pop! I checked the Oliver Square location though, and they didn't have any. Glad I didn't go there yesterday anyway, after watching the news! I love the cream soda they carry!

Mucho Burrito - Edmonton

My hubby and I love Mucho Burrito! I had a conversation with the operator one evening, and he mentioned they are getting licensed to serve Corona and he was working very long hours. I love that everything is so fresh there! He did tell me they are opening one in Sherwood Park is the new strip mall they are building on Wye Rd. You;re right - it is a good option for a healthier version of fast food.

I believe Pizza Boys is called Ragazzi's now (sorry going by memory, not sure of spelling). Has anyone been? I wonder if it's the same owners...

YYC - What the heck is a Halifax Donair? & where to find one...

I am from Nova Scotia (now living in Edmonton) and the donairs are much better back home. The difference is in the sauce. Ahhh, King of Donair..memories... I think your BIL would love to go to the Atlantic Trap & Gill! They have Halifax donairs, big arse burgers, and lots of other east coaster names on their food! It has been a few years since I was at the one in Calgary, but I remember it being in a hotel. I am sure it will bring back fond memories of Halifax for him!

lobster in Edmonton

I'm not sure if this is the cheapest, but seems reasonable to me. If you are willing to go to Sherwood Park, Fin's seafood on Cree Rd sells fresh Atlantic live lobster for 13.95 per lb.

Where can I buy sushi-grade fish in Edmonton?

Just yesterday, I noticed a Japanese supply store in the "industrial" part of 99th St. I have never been in to see if they sell fish, but it may be worth looking into! Hope that helps!

Best Thai and Chinese restaurants in Edmonton?

Hi eastcoastgirl,

I have wondered what Sam Wok was like! I like the sort of Canadianized Chinese food that we have on the east coast! I am also a transplanted maritimer! Thanks for the tips!

Best Thai and Chinese restaurants in Edmonton?

Just wondering your opinions on the best Thai place. I have tried Bua Thai and King and I and really like them both, but always looking for new places to try!

What about Chinese places? I have tried Lingnan and liked it the best so far...

A&W Cream Soda

I wonder if your friend has tried Scweppes Cream Soda? It is hard to find (it is clear like the A & W cream soda). I have seen it at the T&T Asian market here in Edmonton at Wested Mall. It's a nice treat!
