So, I ended up in Edmonton for a weekend to attend a wedding. I can't let this blogging opportunity pass me by! My brother picked us up at the airport and we headed to our hotel. My brother lives in Calgary, so he wasn't familiar with Edmonton. I used my trusty list of restaurant recommendations from the super awesome Yelp community and off we went.
Feeling and casual, we dropped into The Next Act. It has a small patio and lots of seating inside. It was bright and had friendly staff. My dad was there so, you know it's going to be an adventure for the staff. .
We ordered drinks and their beer selection was great! It had, not only local and imported brews, but brews from across Canada! I get so tempted when I see my , but I went with the local lager. . Although, I realized quickly that being insanely hungry, awake since 5am and flying with no food was a bad idea. I was glad the service was quick or I would've been a little tipsy! It wasn't even noon there!
The Pulled Pork Sandwich was chosen by 3 out of 5 of my group. My man got the Steak Sandwich and I chose Critic Burger(No, I was not trying to be ironic). The house side salad was a hit. The dressing went perfectly with the leafy greens and strawberries. The fries were also fantastic....especially with their pesto sauce. . Everyone who chose the pork thought it was ok, no complaints. My man's steak sandwich was exactly that, a full steak on a bun. I guess we're used to steak sandwiches being smaller, more . He had to eat it with a knife and fork! My Critic Burger was messy and so worth it. Smoked cheddar, caramelized onions, BBQ sauce and bacon was a winning combination. If you're going to the Next Act, go with a burger! They're fantastic. So beefy, so juicy, so yum.
A great first impression of Edmonton's food scene so far!
