    Work usually books me at a boutique hotel across the street from Tres Carnales. Their guacamole is pretty good and I grab take out their for dinner.
    If you liked their taco restaurant Tres Carnales, You'll love their other Mexican restaurant Rostizados. Amazing mexican food. As well, the same chef opened up a Philipino street food joint called Kanto 98St. Haven't been there yet, but lots of rave reviews from foodie blogs.

    Harts Table and Bar is quite good. Louisiana Purchase is good. it depends on what you're looking for and where. you did say NW edmonton, but i would travel a bit for a few places.

    For mexican food, Tres Carnales is good, but i would absolutely recommend Three Amigos in Duggan instead.

    Thanks for feedback so far.

    Yeah I guess venturing outside of the area might be needed. Tomorrow, looking for somewhere with good tapas, happy hour would be a plus.

    Might give Kanto 98 a try but see there is also a Korean place called Hanjan that looks good.

    Could not for the life of me find any decent sushi places in Edmonton by the way...

    For decent and hipster sushi, Japanois Bistro is really good. I get the omakase lunch set, that the chef decides what you get. IIRC its $20 and a ton of dishes/tapas style. But IMO Calgary has way better sushi than Edmonton does and just restaurants in general. I think its cause we're close to Fort Mac and oil rigs and everyone drives a lifted truck redneck.

    If you want tapas, try Izakaya Dorinku or Izakaya Tomo, pressed sushi.

    Hansik just opened up I think and its pretty good, Korean place.

    Theres honestly nothing good in the NW, its the ghetto, I live in the NW, and for eating out, its always downtown or Southside. Unless you like donairs, NW has a ton of good joints.

    If you like Malaysian cuisine, maybe check out Tropika. Their skewers with the peanut butter sauce are great.

    For fondue, give Melting Pot a try.

    Both are near the south end of Edmonton on the way home.

    Sushi Wasabi is pretty good, almost comparable to Zipang in Calgary.

    Tzin is excellent for tapas.

    Corso 32 for high-end Italian. The Italian Centre for pizza.

    Prairie Noodle Shop for ramen.

    MEAT for smoked BBQ fare.

    Next Act casual pub feel with excellent (the best) caesars and very good food.

    Duchess for French pastries.

    Elm for coffee and breakfast sandwiches.

    Remedy for a chai.

    Seoul Fried Chicken...for fried chicken.

    Hanjan or Mama Lee's for legit Korean.

    Tres Carnales for tacos. Their sister store Rostizado I didn't like.

    Zwick's Pretzels....for various pretzels.

    North 53 for cocktails though I think they may have closed. Clementine makes decent cocktails but I fucking hate that place so I can't recommend it.

    The Bothy for scotch and whiskey. Food is above average.

    Range Road and The Hardware Grill are supposed to be good for steaks but I've never been.

    If this place had easier access and wasn't so small and crazy busy, I'd be here everyday. 5 piece Garlic Soy set, sesame slaw, fries $11. Their corn fritters are like crack to me. Mochi like. So good.

    I remember reading somewhere that the chef/owner of SFC is the son of Mama's Lees. And Mama Lee's had bomb ass Korean fried chicken already.

    That's Hanjan, his name is Sam, and his Mom cooks at both plans or mentored chef's, I forget. Awesome dude and legit knows an incredible amount about coffee.

    Wife and I went to Corso 32 a few months ago and it was a good experience, smaller venue though.

    I'm there every other weekend so these are great. If you guys have any other suggestions that would be appreciated. Anywhere in the city is fine. I go to the St. Albert theatre because it's the only one with recliners there.

    I have these on my list:

    Turquaz Kebab House
    The art of cake
    Tiramisu Bistro
    Rosso Pizzeria
    Under the high wheel
    De Dutch
    XBL: Inocent Killa
    PSN: WarMachine_V2

    The Melting Pot is the best place to dine in Edmonton. Try for yourself.
