YEG Food Guide Presents Twitter Top 5 - February 4th, 2011

Twitter Top 5 February 4th, 2011
It's Friday and that means another Twitter Top 5.  The Edmonton restaurant scene was very busy on Twitter this week and it showed when we were counting all those Tweets.  Some of you have asked how we determine the Twitter Top 5, and we're here to tell you it's a lot of counting.  We actually do count every tweet in various YEG hash tags, it's a long process each week but it's worth it to promote the great restaurants from around our city.  Without further delay, this week's Twitter Top 5.




Elm Cafe

The first of two returnees this week, we welcome Elm Cafe back to the Twitter Top 5.  Whether they're talking about muffins, sandwiches for lunch, or the always popular chicken and waffles, Elm Cafe keep us hanging off every word - and hungry in the process.  Friday, Elm Cafe was looking to reach the 1000 follower mark, and if they do they will donate money to YESS proving they're not only about the food, but the community as well.  Congrats once again, we hope you meet your 1000 follower mark, as I write this Elm Cafe is sitting at 886 followers.  Congratulations!

Padmanadi Vegetarian Restaurant

No better time than Chinese new year to welcome Padmanadi Vegetarian Restaurant to the Twitter Top 5 for the first time.  If you search Padmanadi on Twitter you're likely to find an endless list of fans for this downtown restaurant.  Serving up vegan and vegetarian cuisine from all over Asia, Padmanadi is as well known for their buffets as they are for their tantalizing menu.  With tastes for everyone, it's no wonder Padmanadi is popular amongst all walks of life.  Congratulations on your Twitter Top 5 debut!

Delux Burger Bar

If there's one thing that never goes out of style it's a great burger, and Delux Burger Bar has some of the best.  This month's feature is the "Nicola" burger, which is featured on flat bread - what a great idea.  However, there's more than just a monthly feature at this Bourbon Street burger haven, there are daily burger specials as well - each more delicious than the last.  Delux is also conscious of those that need to eat on the run as well, stop in and check out the D2GO window for a great bite on the run.  Congrats on making it back on the list!
