Interesting place to eat Xmas eve dinner haha. We don’t really make a big deal over Xmas eve but we did have cravings for shanghai food so we came to arguably the best place in Edmonton for it. Don’t let the interior fool you, the place is decent. While nothing spectacular, the service was excellent and the food was decent (a big plus for Edmonton in my books). Noodles were good but the sticky rice was below average.

I’d go back because there just aren’t many better alternatives in Edmonton.

Average place. Average soup and beef but the noodles were really good. Cheap and large portions.

Victoria: High tea at the Empress

Had afternoon tea at the Empreas Hotel in Victoria. Really expensive (70ish a person all said and done) but the experience was amazing!

The tea was so delicious and the foods were like a bombardment of my taste buds with awesomeness.

Dinner in Victoria consisted of us finding a place that had a reputation for fresh seafood and glad to say that we were not disappointed.

Standard bread to start. Wasn’t bad.

Yummy appetizer consisted of a mussel a in seafood broth and 3 baked oysters in their shells. Very very tasty and I don’t even like oysters.

Jumbo scallops and black tiger prawns in a butter lemon sauce. Cooked very nicely and not overdone. Sauce was a bit on the sour side for me personally tho.

Smoke salmon fettucini. Very tasty and nomilicious.

Dessert was a chocolate mousse with lemon and raspberry dots. Ao soft and smooth!!

Overall the seafood was great. Obviously u pay for the freshiness so you are paying above average, but it’s worth it. Service was great the entire time as well. Thanks for the great dinner!
