Fatburger Edmonton - huge made to order burgers

If you're wondering why the sudden spurt of burger joints on the blog - been craving them during the months leading up to the wedding... which isn't doing any favors for my waistline, but hey, getting in lots of manual labor exercise with landscaping the side yard so not feeling too guilty about it. The gown has a lace-up back too so it'll be more forgiving heehee! Anyhoos, so on a weekend where we were planning to hit up The Burger's Priest, they were closed for some reason, so we hit up Fatburger instead to satisfy our burger craving. We did eventually hit up The Burger's Priest - (review here).. onto the burgaaaaaaaaas!

Mikado southside Edmonton, AB - tasty sushi rolls and Japanese fusion fare

A few weeks ago for Mother's Day weekend, we stopped by Mikado Southside for lunch after running some errands.  The downtown location and southside have different chefs and likely run by different owners - mom likes the southside one as they're more consistent than the downtown location. Onto the food!

Congee Queen North York, ON - awesome comfort food congee and other tasty Chinese eats!

On one of the last nights in Toronto during the Easter long weekend, I think we're making it a tradition now - we stopped at Congee Queen for some quintessential Chinese confort food - Congee! And fried rice and... well, you get the picture.  Staff is friendly, the kitchen is quick and the restaurant is elegant in warm woods, browns and golds.  We went around the table and my family just picked whatever they felt like eating... and since we all love carbs, and carbs usually play an integral part of comfort food.. bring on them carbs baby!! :D Onto the food!
