Mexican Restaurant

“Tres Carnales is amongst the best in the world. Awesome, lively, vibrant setting in the heart of Edmonton’s downtown. On busy nights you will find a lineup with people patiently, but excitedly waiting for a seat. Have a beer or sangria while you wait to place your order at the counter before being seated. There is usually only one vegan item on the menu, but it is fabulous! Staff are outstanding. ”

Restaurant
“This local chain is a favourite cafe option in Edmonton. This welcoming cafe has great selection of foods, drinks, and desserts. They easily cater to vegan and/or gluten free dietary requirements, and don't even charge more to make a chai with almond milk instead of regular milk. I gather from the menus that they're originally Indian themed; a lot of the food is Indian/Pakistani, and their specialty drink is a traditional sweet chai tea. But they have lots of coffee options too and lots of other food as well. Great place to study/work, come to catch up with friends or treat yourself to a nice drink or dessert any time.”
