Remember when you were a kid and the best birthday parties you were invited to involved pizza and pop? Those were my favorite kind of parties and this past week my Gastropost Edmonton friend Brittney invited me and a bunch of pizza loving bloggers out to Urbano Pizza Co. for a pizza and pop party!
Urbano Pizza Co. is the newest restaurant from the owners of Sabor Restaurant and Bodega Tapas and Wine Bar and it’s a place where you can either build your own pizza or try one of their signature pies. The pizzas are cooked super quickly (90-120 seconds) and you could theoretically be in and out with your pizza in 5 minutes! The pizzas are cooked in these very cute and colourful personal ovens – I do believe I even heard that one of them only does gluten-free pizzas, so that’s really great for people with gluten allergies!

This past Mother’s Day, I had the opportunity to attend the SWICH Food Truck pop-up lunch. I had originally RSVP’d for 2 with the plans of taking Argenplath Mama, but she decided instead of hanging out with me or Bel, she would just go out with Argenplath Papa. So I went with Andrea (who has already blogged her thoughts) and enjoyed a very delicious lunch!
SWICH is an artisanal sandwich truck that will be making all everything in their sandwiches from scratch! I love the fact that they are taking this route of doing everything themselves and I think it really says a lot about their philosophy towards food. No word on exactly when SWICH is going to be rolling out, but they do anticipate being out late May and have hinted at being parked in the North and South sides of the city. So without further adieu, let’s get this pop-up started.
It’s a long weekend and I’m loving it especially since it’s the first long weekend in a long time where I didn’t have to be working on school things and I can literally do whatever I want (no repercussions!). So what I did was spend an epic Saturday afternoon eating and drinking to my heart’s content.
I kicked things off with lunch at King Noodle House in Chinatown with Andrea and Teresa. We’ve been trying to make plans to check out King Noodle House forever and finally the stars aligned and we made it in for pho. A great bonus was that Linda (@lindork) was also there and I was finally able to meet her in real life (after lots of exchanged tweets)!
King Noodle House!
