YEG Food Guide Presents Twitter Top 5 - May 6th, 2011


Now that Spring finally seems to be here, there's no better time than now to check out some of Edmonton's great restaurants.  As always, we've counted Tweets, totalled them up and compiled a list of the five most talked about and active restaurants from the Edmonton food scene.  As a reminder, if you haven't followed us on Twitter yet, we're closing in on 1000 followers.  Once we reach the millennium mark for followers, we'll be giving away gift certificates from Hudsons Canadian Taphouse.  Also, be sure to check out the #yegfood Events Calendar - $20 lands you a spot and all proceeds will be donated to the Edmonton Food Bank until the end of May.   Now sit back, relax and enjoy the Twitter Top 5 - have a great weekend everyone.


Delux Burger Bar

With a new month, comes a new celebrity chef at Delux Burger Bar - this month Tina Carson of Corby Distilleries Ltd presents the Spring Fling Burger.  If this lean turkey burger with melted brie on a whole wheat flat bread isn't enough to make you hungry, how about a Poutine Burger?  Yes that's right, I said Poutine Burger.  Be sure to head down next Friday for the Poutine Burger Delux Burger Bar will donate $5 from each burger sold to prostate cancer research.

Tres Carnales

Making their first appearance on the Twitter Top 5 are the guys from Tres Carnales.  Even though the restaurant isn't open yet, that doesn't mean Edmonton hasn't been talking.  Tres Carnales celebrated a busy Cinco de Mayo at Red Star Pub, where they were serving up tacos for only $2.  In what may be the understatement of 2011, we're so excited for this place to open - from the feedback we've received it looks like it'll be worth the wait.

Red Star Pub

Following in the footsteps of their Cinco de Mayo partners in crime, Red Star Pub make their first appearance on the Twitter Top 5.  This downtown pub always has something going on, and whether you're heading down for an event or to scarf down a Tomato Crostini, Red Star Pub is the place to be.  Since it's Friday night, maybe you should be heading down for a drink - there's always something on special.
