Make it Yours

One Weekend in Edmonton, Ab.


Sharing is the highest form of caring at Three Boars, where Chef Brayden Kozak’s menu can be wholesome yet innovative and a means for bringing people together. The internationally inspired dishes are served one at a time with side plates for all, making for a real “shared experience.” Relying heavily on locally sourced produce means the menu is constantly reinvented and reinvigorated. Same goes for the craft cocktails by award-winning bartender Chuck Elves. Return in the morning for craft coffee and sandwiches at the Boars’ baby brother next door, Farrow.

Mimicking the hustle of a Mexican market, Tres Carnales’s lineups are a testament to its popularity. They move faster with a chilly cerveza, tasty margarita or cool jug of Sangria in your palms. Choose from authentic tacos, quesadillas and tostadas packed with specialties like Carne con Chile, a beef brisket slow cooked with beer, chocolate, chillies and tomatoes. Dedicated to the local movement, the tastes and smells are ripe with homegrown ingredients. (10119 - 100A St., @trescarnales ) #yeg #yegfood #yegweekend #mexican (at Tres Carnales Taquería)

Priding itself as an innovator of Canadian cuisine, North 53 is always pushing the envelope of what an ingredient could taste like - and look like on a dish. Using only exclusively Canadian ingredients, chef Ben Staley’s adventurous six-course tasting menu and a la carte are always in a constant state of evolution. Come to the ultra-relaxed, modern room for an Okanagan wine and or one of the bars inventive cocktails. The Smoke+Oak Old Fashioned is as tantalizing on the tongue and as it is for the eyes.(10240 - 124th St., @north_53 ) #yegfood #yegweekend #exploreedmonton (at North 53)
