YEG Eats Episode 2: Monamie Resto

Local pan-African restaurant provides a welcoming, community-minded spirit along with great food

YEG Eats is a brand new video series that brings you into the kitchens of Edmonton’s BIPOC-owned restaurants. Each video will give you an inside look at the struggles and joys of running a restaurant as a BIPOC in our city — all while featuring some great spots to eat. This series, produced by Imagene Films, was made possible by a grant from ECF.

In episode we head to the Monamie Resto and meet owner Margaret Bello Amedume. Monamie offers a wide variety of African cuisine, all of it inspired by the love of family and community.
