I had never been and had heard all about the revolving restaurant here so figured it'd be a good place to hit up for our anniversary dinner.
On reading 'Beef Wellington' I had to go to their website to check out the menu. It states 'deconstructed Beef Wellington'. Does anybody know if there are any restaurants in Edmonton that currently feature a true Beef Wellington, other than Ernest's, at NAIT?

From a coworker

"Hello,

My friend Cathy and her boyfriend just opened up a Vietnamese food truck “Lemongrass”. They are at 107St and 100Ave this week. They sell authentic Viet food, springrolls, salad rolls, green onion cake, Viet sub and different type of vermicelli bowls (chicken, pork, beef). Prices are ranging from $6 to $8, I think.

If you guys are craving Viet food and don’t mind the short walk, please give them a try."

The story behind it:

Never have we had it so good for outdoor noshing

Pity your friends and relatives in Toronto - at least the ones who'd like to grab a quick bite of lunch during a busy day.

Toronto the Good has some of the most strict and antiquated rules in urban Canada when it comes to licensing food trucks. Right now, food trucks are forbidden on Toronto city streets. They can only operate on private property or at special events. As a result, there are only about two dozen food trucks in the greater Toronto area...

Street Food app works pretty good. Missing a couple trucks, but good otherwise. Toronto has acknowledged their problem for a long time. Fixing it is a different story though.

Walked up to Padmanadi with some coworkers for lunch. I don't go there often, but somewhere between visits I keep forgetting just how good the food is. The $12 lunch gets you a surprisingly filling vegetarian dish with rice and springrolls, and you can get coconut rice for an extra $1 (worth it). Very tasty.

^ Wildflower's patio's relatively close proximity to that tree and parking meter make it tricky to walk on the sidewalk there at times. This would definitely have been a good candidate for one of those temporary street patios.

I agree. But our outdated liquour laws wont let a server transport alcohol across a public sidewalk to a streetside patio like this!

I would hardly call a 5 to 7 foot sidewalk width tricky to navigate as a pedestrian, or group of pedestrians. I don't think the average person would ever consider themselves to be inconvenienced by that patio when walking to or from work along 107 street. If this is too narrow, where can we have patios in this town?

That said, a parklet would be awesome. AGLC be damned!

The liquor law prevents moving across a sidewalk to a seating area? Geez, that is outdated.
