Best Things
to Eat
in Edmonton

Our first annual list of fabulous fare from local restaurants,
bakeries & markets

The Ural Burger at Highlevel Diner has been an
Edmonton staple for more than 25 years.

The quest to name the best 25 things to eat in Edmonton is not as easy as it sounds, especially when you love all good food things as I do. How do you choose? From memory? Definitely. Referrals from other foodies you trust? Of course. Beyond that, we tried for a mix of the spots that are well known and not. A few things I’m sure of: This list is just the tip of the iceberg; this food is freshly prepared and hand-crafted; and sometimes you’ll have to get into your car and drive to try it. But I guarantee that you will discover it’s worth the time and travel.

The Ural Burger at Highlevel Diner

Lots of burgers are on the radar these days, but how many establishments can boast that their burger recipe has been successfully prepared and served for more than 25 years? Highlevel’s juicy burger is five ounces of pure, very lean ground beef, served on a stone-ground whole wheat bun with an array of homemade condiments — corn relish, beet relish and ketchup. Yes, the ketchup is homemade, but if you really need it, Heinz is available. (10912 88 Ave., 780-433-0993)
