Continental Treat Fine Bistro Gluten Free

10560 82 Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 2A4

With wiener schnitzel being the national dish of Austria, it’s no surprise these Europeans know how to fry up some meat. This is the place to get your schnitzel frenzy on in Edmonton. The chicken schnitzel is prepared in true Vienna fashion, using a thin piece of chicken, known as a butterfly cut, soaked in egg wash and dipped in flour and bread crumbs before being fried up.

Wow Pop Chicken

3350 Parsons Rd NW, Edmonton, AB T6N 1B5

This is Korean-style fried chicken at its finest. Coco’s only uses free-range, hormone-free chickens and they ONLY serve chicken. There is a few seats if you want to eat in but it’s really more of a to-go spot. You can get the fried chicken the old fashioned way (dry) or add the Korean sauce if you want it with a bit of sauciness and spice. Either way, move over, Colonel.

This barbecue joint offers some down-home deep fried chicken legs and thighs. Crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside and, of course, not too oily. It’s perfect.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
