Greektown Food Truck

One of the best parts of all the food trucks in Winnipeg is that you can get a wide variety of foods. For me Greek food is one of the first non-British foods that I can remember eating on a regular basis. The first would be Indian. When we first moved to Winnipeg my dad worked on Ellice Avenue just down from Homer’s. I miss the old Greek restaurant that was in City Place. So, I was glad when Greektown…Continue readingGreektown Food Truck

Bannock Factory – Food Truck Alley

Last week I decided to take in The Bannock Factory Truck, another one of the newer food trucks on Winnipeg’s streets.

The newest location…Continue readingBannock Factory – Food Truck Alley

We’re half way into spring in Winnipeg. It seems…Continue readingBetter than Baba’s

Waki Temaki Sushi Truck

When I did my preliminary Food Truck Power Rankings, I mentioned that there were three trucks that I still hadn’t tried. I’ve now visited Waki Temaki Sushi Truck, so I can knock that number down to two. Waki Temaki is run by the owner and chef of Yujiro Japanese Restaurant on Grant Avenue. You can generally find the Waki Temaki truck on Broadway in one of the blocks close to the Legislature. Winnipeg has approximately 12,000 sushi restaurants*. This is a…Continue readingWaki Temaki Sushi Truck
