Places to eat along Jasper Avenue in Edmonton

While pub crawls may be popular along Jasper Avenue, it’s just as easy to do a restaurant crawl along this popular strip. Eat your way through some of the best restaurants in the city, without ever straying from one of the tastiest Avenues around.

Sicilian Pasta Kitchen

1
11239 Jasper Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 0L5

This is one of the best places in the city to enjoy a hearty dish of pasta. It has been serving up Italian cuisine for more than 20 years, and people still flock to it. Their pizza is just as mouth-watering as their pasta dishes but don’t overlook the carne e pesci, with choices such as pan-seared Atlantic salmon, chicken in a white wine garlic sauce and a rack of lamb with port fig sauce.

Normand's Restaurant

2
11639 Jasper Ave Nw, Edmonton, AB T5K 0M9

The restaurateur behind Normand’s is Normand himself, co-owner of two other restaurants in the city. This is his only spot along Jasper Avenue, and it’s easy to drive right by it – but that would be a mistake. The food is classic French, the atmosphere manages to be both elegant and unpretentious, and the vino is always flowing.

Japonais Bistro

3
11806 Jasper Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 0N7

While combining traditional Japanese fare with French influences is a tad risky, it has paid off for Japonais Bistro. Their bento boxes are massive, and perfect for a filling but reasonably priced lunch, while their maki are always satisfying. The menu also has more daring picks, such as the soft shell crab burger or the jalapeno yello

Bua Thai Restaurant

4
10049 113 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 1N9

The Thai food here is, without question, outstanding. I’ve walked many, many blocks in the freezing cold of an Edmonton winter just to taste their delectable cuisine. The spicy green curry always warms my belly, and the fluffy coconut rice never disappoints. Friends like to gorge themselves on the stuffed chicken wings, which are big enough to be a meal.

Corso 32

5
10345 Jasper Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 1Y5

This is one of the finest, most popular restaurants in Edmonton, and for a good reason – the food is exquisite. It’s rustic Italian fare in a cozy, 32-seat eatery located on the bustling side of Jasper Avenue. The handmade pasta will make you vow never to bother with boxed noodles again, the game hen will make you give up on chicken entirely and the salted hazelnut chocolate torta will ensure you never volunteer to share dessert with your friends again.

Cactus Club Cafe

6
11150 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton, AB T5K 2V2

This is a fun spot for drinks or dinner, so it is a popular choice to pop into no matter what kind of crawl you’re doing along Jasper Avenue. The menu is classic, unpretentious but good – I’m never disappointed, whether I try a steak, ahi tuna or a hearty salad.
