Where to eat on 142 Street in Edmonton

While the 142 Street area is close to a lot of businesses – and therefore draws in the lunch crowd – it isn’t necessarily known as a dining destination in Edmonton. But, if you take the time to stop by, you’ll find a variety of finely tuned establishments from bistros to delis to burger bars.

Quan's Cafe

1
11148 142 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5M 4G5

This Vietnamese café is a hidden gem, located in a strip mall on 142 Street. It’s a family-run spot that gets busy around lunch time (it isn’t open in the evenings), so plan accordingly if you want to get in on this action. If you need helping deciding what to devour, the spicy beef satay soup, salad rolls with peanut sauce and cashew chicken are all popular choices.

Delux Burger Bar

2
9682 142 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5N 4B2

The chefs get their antibiotic and hormone-free Heritage Angus beef from Spirit View Ranch, located in northwest Alberta. There is a variety of great burgers on the menu but if you’re in the mood for something really decadent, try the Delux Stack, which is nine ounces of Kobe-style beef, smoked bacon, caramelized onions, smoked cheddar and spicy mayo on a brioche bun. You can also build your own custom burger to suit your fancy.

CareIt Urban Deli Inc

3
5236 199 St NW, Edmonton, AB T6M 0E4

This is a great spot to stop by for a simple but delicious lunch. They offer a soup and sandwich deal, plus vegetarian and celiac-friendly options. There is also a ton of fresh salads, including Greek, roasted yam with pink peppercorn dressing, Caesar, and spinach with goji berry dressing. For something heartier, there are also goodies such as shepherd’s pie, butter chicken and BBQ pulled pork.

PiccoLino Bistro

This Italian bistro has a huge menu, featuring pasta, pizza, insalata, antipasta, zuppa and more. The entrees range from stuffed chicken to pizzaiola, as well as a variety of seafood dishes. Some of the pasta is homemade, and there is also whole wheat and rice pasta available. While the atmosphere feels a bit dated, the food is classic.

Tropika Malaysian Cuisine

5
14921 Stony Plain Rd NW, Edmonton, AB T5P 4W1

The menu is so massive at this Malaysian restaurant that it is best to bring a group and share a variety of yummy dishes. Start with the Indonesian roasted pork with white peppercorn, Tropika home-style chicken and kari lembu(beef curry). Then, throw in some veggie dishes, such as Thai-style eggplant and broccoli with sliced beef. If you still have any room left, they have a pretty big dessert menu, too.
