Parlour

10334 108 Street, Edmonton

I usually don’t order in all too often, but now with all the plethora of food delivery apps, I decided to give Parlour a try (with a grain a salt, since it’s delivery). Parlour is located by MacEwan on Capital boulevard and is part of the Century Hospitality group. There’s plenty of parking in and around this area, but be weary of game nights. I’m not entirely too sure if it’s too close to the Arena to be affected by events, but it’s pretty accessible by Transit, and they have a small lot in the back. On top of ordering in, I’ve been here a few times at the restaurant for my friend’s birthdays and other events.

Calamari

As an appetizer, I went with the calarmari Diavolo. Crispy Fried squid, crispy pickled serrano, broccoli fritto, micro greens, charred lime, and served with a spicy aioli. Overall really good! The calamari was cooked perfectly and it was nice and tender. I liked the pickled serrano as it gave it a nice little kick. Overall really pleasant and nice to eat.

The pizza that we got was the ‘Family Jewels’ It comes with rosso sauce, provolone, back bacon, capicolla, crispy bacon, fresh tomatoes, and arugula. The crust here reminds me of the crust at Famoso. It’s nice and light and a good vessel for ingredients. Overall it was a really nice pizza. I like how they have so many options for toppings and I’d probably come back for their pizza.

Short Rib ravioli

As a pasta, we ordered the Short Rib Ravioli ($26). It comes with braised Aspen Ridge Angus beef, Artisan-made raviolis, house made ricotta, truffle mushroom crema. The sauce was quite nice, but I found that the braised beef itself was quite bland. The sauce and everything else was good, but the ravioli left me a bit underwhelmed. I think I would rather stick to a different pasta or their pizzas.

For dessert, I came here with a food tour group and sample a number of the desserts, but the one that really stood out to me was their Apple Pie Pizza. Granny smith apples, cinnamon sugar, rolled oats, and salted caramel sauce. Really good and the crust was an excellent vessel once again for all of these ingredients. It is a bit carb heavy, but that’s why you’re eating dessert anyways right?!

Apple Pie Pizza

Overall my experience with Parlour was pretty good. I enjoyed everything that I had except for the pasta, where I found the interior braised beef to be a bland. For home delivery or for dining in, I think it’s a pretty good option.
