Sabor Seafood Festival 2016: August 5 - September 3August 05, 2016
Seafood lovers get ready! Sabor's annual Seafood Festival is back for it's third year, from August 5th - September 3rd. I had the opportunity to attend the media kickoff dinner last week and there's some exciting plates on the menu this year.
Sabor - 10220 103 Street - Edmonton AB
The meal began with five different tapas dishes, and first up was the Scallop & Limpet Ceviche. You won't find limpets on any other menu in Edmonton, so this is your best chance at trying these aquatic snails! You could taste the natural sweetness of the fresh scallops and limpets, but the dish was a tad viscous for my palate.
The Sabor Seafood Festival runs now through September 3rd, so you have just under one month to try out the dishes on the special menu. While the regular menu is still available, I would encourage you to try something new, or even order the dish made by Chef Hansen to support Ocean Wise initiatives! If seafood isn't your thing, not to worry - check out Sabor's newly opened sister restaurant Bodega in the Highlands area for wine and tapas instead.
