Shhh…. Are you alone? Good… Edmonton’s best kept secret is Vi’s for Pies. Seriously you should drop what you are doing and head over there as soon as possible. Unless you’re holding a baby, then just gently place the baby on the ground.
Vi’s for Pies is a unique and quintessential Edmonton experience. Known not only for their amazing pies (obviously) but their food will remind you of meals in your grandmothers kitchen. The staff is warm, friendly and very busy! Once you sit down don’t worry if you don’t have a menu on the table, someone will bring you a chalkboard with all the favorites like Shephards Pie, Beef Brisket, Spanikopita as well as the day’s features.
Today I ventured for the Soup and Sandwich combo as the Pumpkin Chipotle Soup was calling my name and definitely didn’t disappoint. The Beef Brisket Sandwich on a Carmalized Onion Bagle hit the spot, with a beautiful pink smoke ring on the meat infusing the smoky flavor with the coleslaw in the sandwich. My only regret is that I didn’t order more to take home with me.
For dessert I had ordered the Key Lime Pie, however as you can see by the picture it never reached the table, pretty sure it taste amazing though. With reasonable prices this local hotspot wont break the bank and is sure to impress even the most critical foodie in your group.
