It's Friday, time for another Twitter Top 5
Another week is in the books, and while it's cold outside the restaurants featured in the Twitter Top 5 are anything but.  As always, we've spent the week counting tweets in various Edmonton related hash tags and compiled a list of the most active and talked about restaurants in Edmonton.  Thanks for stopping in as we take the weekly tour of the Twitter Top 5.

Oodle Noodle

We're proud and thrilled to welcome Oodle Noodle back to the Twitter Top 5.  With the events that have taken place over the past 24 hours in Japan we realize that there are things far more important than food.  However, Oodle Noodle is doing their part for the Japan Earthquake relief by donating 25 cents from every Tokyo Glaze sold at the downtown location to the Red Cross which will in turn use that money to help those in need during this terrible tragedy.  If you're downtown and hungry, stop in to Oodle Noodle and offer your support.

Locations:

West End - 10009 170 Street - (780) 930-1884

Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse

Although Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse is the new kid in town, they're making a splash.  Pampa was featured in the Edmonton Journal this week, and the sentiments from the article can be seen all over Twitter as happy patrons talk about their experience.  If steak is what you're looking for, this weekend, book in to Pampa and enjoy the unique dining experience that everyone is talking about.
