Like a Canadian version of Oklahoma, Edmonton is basically a plains state found in the far north. Beef, beef and more beef is a basic staple of Edmontonian cuisine, as the burger you're probably eating came from the other side of the road you're eating on. But, Edmonton also has two thousand restaurants to choose from, so you'll never go hungry. A great place to check out is the Blue Pear Restaurant. Tucked into an innocuous, petite strip mall just off the 124th Street stroll is this absolute gem of a restaurant. A small room in muted gray and blue tones, the Blue Pear is the brainchild of a food-obsessed husband-and-wife team. He's the chef; she handles the hospitality. It's a perfect partnership. Over the course of a five-course meal, wonders emerge from the kitchen at perfect pace, each one leaving you awaiting the next.
No serious discussion of the Edmonton dining scene could possibly be complete without mention of Jack's Grill. Tucked away in a quiet residential area in the city's south end, near the Southgate Mall, Jack's is a casually elegant restaurant that draws diners from all over the city -- and the country. Its food relies on simple preparation, inventive flavor combinations, and tons of fresh, local ingredients.
A must-visit is the Haweli Restaurant. "Haweli" is a Hindi word meaning private royal residence, the secluded area where princes and princesses invite special guests to discuss important matters of state. Here you can enjoy the best dishes by some of the the best Indian chefs in the region. Haweli has quickly gained recognition as a top-notch gourmet Indian restaurant. Book a table at these restaurants; they're definitely among the best of Edmonton's two thousand restaurants.
