Three Vikings combines the comfort and familiarity of the classic pub, with a thought out, quality menu consisting of local ingredients. This creates a space where patrons can enjoy good food and craft beer in a cozy pub atmosphere. Bringing forth both Danish and English fare, Three Vikings have carved out a niche market in Edmonton.
“We are a neighbourhood pub and we are acknowledging the connection between Scandinavia and the UK, via the Vikings. We have a lot of local pub favourites, as well as British and Danish specialties.”
While a bulk of their menu is produced in-house, Three Vikings sources from a grocery list of local suppliers.
“We have a lot of local suppliers and producers. Basically we try to make everything we can in house, but if not, then we’ll source locally. We work closely with Muelly’s across the street for our meat, Pinocchio ice Cream, the Vienna bakery, we also have a farmers market just down the street that our Head Chef goes to every week.”
Stephanie Moore opened Three Vikings with her husband in October 2018. Not her first foray into the restaurant business, Stephanie is a foodie with conviction.
“I’ve been working in and out of restaurants for many years, mostly in front of house. I worked as a recipe writer for a while. I just love food,” Stephanie jokes.
Three Vikings uses local craft beers and have 14 taps at their bar, including 4 rotating taps. The Scandanavian inspiration also shines through at the bar, where they sell Akvavit; a Scandanavian alcohol distilled from grain and potatoes, flavoured with a variety of herbs.
“Each Scandanavian country has their own version of Akvavit, but it’s also being made locally as well. We have some from Iceland, some from Norway and some from Denmark. We have seven different types at the moment and have also recently been able to source it from B.C. and Calgary,” Says Moore
Absolutely a must try, make sure to drink your Akvavit ice cold.
