Wok Box in Edmonton

This isn't about saving time or effort...this is laziness. Putting food in a dirty container that was left there full of old sauce for god knows how long is disgusting. I find it very hard to believe that quality restaurants leave dirty dishes laying around the kitchen in hopes someone might order the same dish 2 hours later.

If you order the lemon chicken...for example...they cook the chicken up, then put it into a tupperware container, add the sauce and then shake it up. Which is fine. Until the guy behind you orders the same thing....they use the same container WITHOUT washing it. I know it's the same sauce...but that's gross. GROSS. The first time I had seen that was the last time I've eaten there.

Sage - Edmonton - meal report

I've only been to the Ric's in downtown Edmonton. and it's been great. I've never to the Sherwood Park location...maybe it's worth making the trip downtown to compare staff and service?

Sage - Edmonton - meal report

Thanx for the post!!! My SO and I were going to go the other night, but I haven't heard anything good so we decided not to chance it and went to Ric's Grill instead.

I'm not sure I have any interest in going after I hear complaint after complaint...

Ruth's Chris in Edmonton...

My hubby and I have decided we are going to go to Ruth's Chris for Valentine's Day....I haven't really heard anything specific about it other than great food.

Anyone have any comments about the restaurant?

Thanx!

Best breakfast joints in Western Canada

If you stop in Banff...make sure you hit up Bruno's. SO SO SO good. GO early to get a table because it's always packed...or go a little later after the breakfast rush is gone.

It's a 'can't miss'

LAS VEGAS

No budget...any style of food...but we are big fans of a really great Steakhouse. And yes, we will have a car.

My husband and I are going to Las Vegas in June and are looking for something OTHER than the buffets...

Any suggestions on some "can't miss" places to dine?

Thanx!

SAME???

Is polenta and corn meal the same thing?

I need instant polenta and can't seem to find it. I haven't looked in any specialty grocery stores yet, just your basic Safeway.

But I was told that instant polenta and cornmeal is the same thing...is that true?

Favourite Restaurant in Edmonton?

I've never been to Unheardof...I was thinking of going there for V-Day...they have a special menu they are offering. I think the webiste said it will be posted around the 15th of Jan?

I've never heard of Packrat Louies...where is it located?

Favourite Restaurant in Edmonton?

Hey Bob,

I have never been to Lux and the other sister restaurants...but the menus are all pretty much the same, so if you didn't like those then I'm sure you wouldn't like 100. But I will say one of the best steaks I've had in a long time was at the 100. Also, at a certain time the 100 really goes full force into the bar scene, a live DJ and the whole bit. So if you aren't into very very loud music, it's not the place for you.

I've heard alot of good things about Red Ox...maybe we will have to try there.

I've also heard Sage was great. What is the atmosphere like there?

In an attempt to gain some suggestions for a place for me and hubby to go to on Valentine's Day...I'm asking everyone to post their favourite restaurant and maybe we can find something new that we are missing out on.
