jacek chocolate


All throughout today, I was feeling the December blues. The weather got cold  suddenly, and I was just not having a day. So what better way to get myself out of this little slump than treat myself. And not just any chocolate, but the finest in Edmonton – Jacek Chocolate!

(FYI: No, I did not devour both sets by myself! I’m going to be sending a set as a surprise Christmas gift to a friend in another province ☺)

This year’s Holiday Collection includes: Clause Bite, Peppermint Meltaway, Hazelnut, Burnt Salted Caramel, Spiced Apple Caramel, and Audrey Bite. Read more about each flavor on their website 🙂

#yegfood miga 味家 edmonton


Yet another new Korean restaurant has emerged in the #yeg scene, but this one is different from any other. Having opened just this past Monday, Miga is a restaurant dedicated to Korean cuisine nested at 9261-34 Ave.

철판 닭볶음 / Stir Fried Chicken with Vegetable on Hot Plate:

I had seen this particular dish on their instagram page already, so naturally I had to go try it out for myself. Nestled in the middle of the hot plate is the stir fried chicken and veggie dish, which is spicy – true to its Korean flavors – yet sweet enough which will likely suit to the general public. Surrounding the chicken are an arrangement of egg soup, cheese, buttered corn and kimchi. These side pocket dishes (other than the kimchi) definitely help in controlling the heat coming from the chicken. If you feel that the spice is starting to overwhelm your taste palate, take a spoonful of the egg soup. Or a spoonful of the buttered corn. Then try dipping the stir fried chicken into the cheese for a different flavor!
