The Next Act Pub & Grill

8224 104 St NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 4E6

This Whyte Avenue hotspot is known for their sumptuous, savoury burgers, but they’re no slouch in the salad department. Their classic Caesar provides a well rounded, perfectly dressed familiar option for the less adventurous types, but their house salad is truly where it’s at. Packed full of strawberries, grapes, almonds and pea shoots, this gorgeous salad is complemented by a house-made honey vinaigrette; order it with grilled chicken or as a side to your burger or sandwich.

Woodwork Restaurant

10132 100 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 0N8

Located near Churchill Square just off Rice Howard Way, Woodwork is infamous for their wood-fried fare and cocktails, but it also serves two deliciously designed salads: the mustard green salad with burnt shallots, peas, pecorino, concord and cured yolk and the duck confit salad with crunchy walnuts, soft gorgonzola and a tarragon vinaigrette.

The Common

9910 109 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 1H5

One of downtown’s most unique restaurant and bars, The Common is known for their hip vibe and gourmet pub fare. They’re no slouch in the salad department either, offering five fabulous gluten-free salads that you can add fish, chicken or steak to, depending on your taste preference. Try the prosciutto, nectarine and honeydew salad with a mint and white balsamic dressing (perfect with chicken) or the smoked pork salad with lychee, grilled scallions, tangerines and oranges.

Ampersand 27

10612 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 2A7

With three killer salads on their dinner menu, Whyte Avenue’s Ampersand 27 combines amazing flavour profiles with crisp greens in their kale and spinach salad (ricotta and apricots anyone?), Asian duck salad (bitter radishes, tangy slaw and sweet hoisin), and their floral and farro salad with smoked Fior Di Late, farro, edible flowers, grapefruit, apple, cucumber and pine nuts.

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good, well made pie: light, buttery, flaky crusts paired with delectable, fruity or creamy fillings – a heavenly culinary adventure. Between its world-class bakeries, local niche restaurants and made-from-scratch farmers’ market pies, Edmonton has some spectacular pie offerings.
What is it about fried chicken that’s so good, so great, so unbelievably satisfying? Is it the satisfying crunch that comes from a deliciously battered,flawlessly seasoned and perfectly fried bite? Oh that juicy, flaking chicken enrobed in that heavenly crust! Edmonton has a pretty fabulous fried chicken scene, so checkout these restaurants to get your fix.
