Hathaway's Diner

I've lived in the northside of Edmonton my whole life so it's safe to say that I've tried out pretty much every restaurant the northside has. Wow that statement makes me sound like I'm super old but I'm actually not lol.. Anyways, I was surprised when I heard that there was a diner located north that I've never been to. It's not a new diner either, so I guess you can kind of consider it a hidden gem. 

Hathaway's Diner is in a random neighborhood and it's a pretty small diner. I would say that it's about 5 minutes from the Skyview area. If you go around lunch time, chances are that you'll probably have to wait for a table. The diner is very quaint though and service is super friendly. Side note that they're closed Sundays and Mondays and opened 7-4 pm the other days. They serve breakfast, lunch, and pies along with daily specials. The prices are reasonable cheap and the food portions are sure filling!

Shanghai Grill

Helloooo!!! I've been super busy for the past month and haven't had time to update my blog sadly :( But my final exams are finished this week so expect a few new posts before May comes! Also my blog is 1 years old!!! Thank you to those out there who actually read my blog hahaha. 

One of the restaurants that I've actually gone to twice this month is Shanghai Grill. What brought me here were the Xiao Long Bao (XLB), which I am obsessed with. They are soup filled dumplings, which is a staple food in Shanghai. Not many restaurants in Edmonton offer XLB therefore I am always on the hunt for them. Aside from those delicious dumplings, Shanghai Grill offers your average Chinese food along with some Shanghai specialties. The items at Shanghai Grill are meant to be shared with a few people but if you're like me, you'll order the soup filled dumplings to yourself (whoops)! So where is this place? Tucked in the Mayfield Industrial area, kind of in a random location. I found the place to be a bit overpriced for what it serves but the quality is better than most Chinese places.
