YEG Food Guide Presents Twitter Top 5 - February 25th, 2011

Welcome to the Twitter Top 5
Can it get any colder in Edmonton?  Although it was a fairly miserable week weather wise, there was still plenty to talk about throughout the Edmonton food scene.  Thanks for checking in with us as we recap the most active and talked about restaurants from the past week.  Grab a blanket, forget about the outdoors and let's take a look at this week's Twitter Top 5.



Pampas Brazilian Steakhouse

When it's as cold as it was in Edmonton this week, we often fantasize about being somewhere warm.  Although, Pampas Brazilian Steakhouse won't be as warm as Brazil, the flavours from the Southern Pampas region of the country may be as close as we can get.  Pampas had Edmontonians buzzing this week, and although they don't have a Twitter account set up yet we're all excited to have them and the tweets came in in droves.  We welcome Pampas Brazilian Steakhouse not only to the Twitter Top 5, but to Edmonton as well. Congratulations!

Hudsons Canadian Taphouse

Is there any better way to beat the cold than hot wings?  How about if they're free?  Hudsons offer of free wings for a year for the first 200 people to check in at the newly renovated Whyte Ave location lit Twitter afire.  When you combine free wings with Jackass' Bam Margera stopping in for drinks, there was a lot to talk about.  Congratulations to Hudsons Canadian Taphouse for their first appearance on the Twitter Top 5.
