Neighbourhood Niche

Iced coffee with Bailey's
We went to Niche on 3 course Thursdays and were not disappointed. This coffee obsessed bovine started with the iced coffee with Bailey's which was perfectly sweetened with a lavender infused simple syrup. The Bailey's added just the right amount of creaminess, and in this humble cow's opinion is the best iced coffee in the #yeg.

The fresh oyster and tomato boccaccini salad had a mildly sweet dressing, refreshingly juicy tomatoes, sweet nectarines, and tangy artichokes - which I am normally adverse to, but these have changed my mind. The oyster on top was perfectly cooked and melted in your mouth.

Delicious "Tasting Menu" at 100 Bar + Kitchen

Foie Gras Popcorn
Chef Andrew Cowan, one of my favorite chefs in Edmonton, had been promoted from sous chef at Lux Steakhouse to chef de maision at 100 Bar + Kitchen in March. Since then, he has been working on making the menu his own and in May, agreed to give mooself, my entourage and @thepolishviking a sneak peak on some items he had been working on.

Underwhelmed at Wildflower Grill

I'll begin this post by saying that I've had an absolutely amazing 6 weeks of eating before eating here, so this bovine's expectations might have been set unfairly high heading into the Wildflower Grill for dinner. However, my tastes will differ from other people's and this is just my humble opinion.

We have been to the Wildflower Grill a few times before for their Sunday brunch, and had enjoyed it. In particular the corn bread that is only made and served for brunch - though it is so delicious that we wish it was available all the time! Based on previous experiences, I finally convinced my entourage to take the time to try out their dinner menu.

A Cupcaking We Will Go

A Quest

Loads of cupcakes
Once upon a time on Twitter, a blogger and food reviewer named @thepolishviking came up with a deviously delicious idea: To taste test all of the cupcakes in the land of #yeg (Edmonton). An overly excited little bovine named @marlowmoo quickly volunteered to assist her in this dangerous, yet important quest. @michpetersjones knew they would require a third brave soul and the trio set out on what they hoped would be a fun filled and sugar fueled day of excitement, for the betterment of #yegfood.

Brunch of Champions at Zinc

Zinc Interior
This was our inaugural visit to the restaurant, my only other experience with Zinc being a less than spectacular catered event at the AGA, with unimpressive food. So we weren't quite sure what to expect at brunch.

The restaurant itself was an eclectic mix of wood, concrete, metal and glass.  It made the space feel as though it was an art piece, but the materials gave it an open and light feeling. The humans opted for the 3 course meal and it was if the restaurant knew this pint size bovine was coming, with many items perfectly sized for moo.
