YEG Food Guide Presents Twitter Top 5 - July 22nd, 2011


The weekend is here, and even though it's looking soggy outside, there's lots going on in the city.  The Edmonton food scene was blowing up this week, and as always we've run through truck loads of tweets to compile the five most active and talked about restaurants in the city.  With that, we present the Twitter Top 5.

The most popular topic on Twitter was the anticipated arrival of the Taste of Edmonton.  Always a local favourite, the Taste of Edmonton features restaurants of all backgrounds and cuisines from all around the city.  Set up in Sir Winston Churchill Square, Taste of Edmonton can be purchased as you come in for $1 each or check out their website for ticket details.  Take in the sights and fill yourself up, but as you'll see, often one trip to the Taste of Edmonton is never enough.

The momentum continues to build for Edmonton's newest Mexican restaurant, and we're happy to welcome Tres Carnales back to the Twitter Top 5.  The fanfare continued this week, as Edmonton continues to try the tastes of Mexico that many Edmontonians felt was sorely lacking in our fair city.  If you're downtown this weekend, grab yourself some tacos and let the guys know what you think - I'm sure they'll appreciate the feedback.
