46 Bucket List Restaurants Every True Edmontonian Needs To Try

There's no shortage of good food options in YEG. With new joints showing up everywhere in the city (as often as the Kardashians do on your news feed), there's always some place nom-worthy you have yet to try out!

Understandably, choosing which restaurant to go to can be a hard decision to make (testing the patience of most relationships).  Don't fear though, I'm here to help! Selfless as always, I've taken on the difficult task of trying out as many places in Edmonton as possible. So, out of the kindness of my heart, I'm sharing the restaurants I believe every true Edmontonian needs to try.

Note: This is a dangerous post to read when hungry.

Note 2: Food trucks are not included in this list (or you would have been spending half a day reading through this).
