At Culina Millcreek in Edmonton, Alberta, diners enjoy a wonderful menu inspired by global cuisine. However, the emphasis is on quality and so the dinner menu is a quite small and limited to an array of attentively and carefully prepared dishes designed to pair well with the wines and cocktails available.
The dinner menu for Culina Millcreek features small plates that include a spiced pumpkin soup, a Brazilian cheese fritter plate, Lebanese kibe fritters and totally unique popcorn flavored with truffle oil. There is also the Culina Millcreek charcuterie board that features an astonishing number of flavors. Large plates include meat and vegetarian options, and for dessert there is an irresistible lemon tea beer cake.
I have been there twice before and quite enjoyed but this time every appi was bread or deep fried. I know they change menu all the time so I will go back again
I love this neighbourhood eatery, so sad that it will be closing
One of my favourite restaurants in Edmonton - never disappoints. Will be very sad when it closes.
Reminds me of The Red Ox Inn. Small restaurant. Great food. A little slow but worth the wait.
Made reservations (recommended) for Sunday brunch. The location had on street parking. The size of the restaurant is quite small and felt a bit cozy. This also tended to increase the noise level a bit, but nothing to be concerned about. The menu items were unique takes on some everyday items. Quality of the food and service was good. My only complaint is that my plate (eggs benny) was not as warm as it could have been. Proportions were decent.
Great restaurant, sorry to hear that they are closing October 23rd.
I went for my 21st birthday celebration. I had a wonderful time and enjoyed the food. It was creative and their menu changes weekly with their ingredients being sourced locally. It wasn't busy but it was a Thursday afternoon/evening. Despite that the bill times were quite long which is why I took a star off for service. Otherwise the staff were wonderful and informed about the menu. I love going there as the ambiance is always very relaxing.
We dropped by Culina Millcreek on our way to a Fringe show. Timing was a bit tight, and e told our waiter. We were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and the speed of service, and very impressed by the quality and presentation of the food. This is a gem of a neighbourhood restaurant that people should check out soon.
The food wasn't as good as it used to be. Ordered eggs Benny, one egg was over cooked, the other had a clear egg white. Our waitress was still clearly drunk at 10am. She took food and drinks to wrong tables multiple times, didn't clear empty plates or check on tables. I'm amazed she was able to pour coffee the way she circled the rim of the cup narrowly avoiding spillage.
Very creative menu and great service. And always check out the drink of the day!
