Earlier in 2018, we hosted a live panel dedicated to one of the most important questions in Edmonton’s food history: how the heck did green onion cakes get so popular in Edmonton? These delicious, flaky, greasy little circles of fried goodness didn’t just magically worm their way into our hearts.

This episode, we’re getting a taste of what’s changed for green onion cake master Siu To since that episode.

Siu To adds a little oil to the grill in the kitchen.

We visited Siu To and his wife Yeenar To at their new restaurant on 118th Ave, literally called “The Green Onion Cake Man.”

The sign outside bears Siu To's face, naturally.
