Goldie’s Fries For Lunch

One of the food trucks that I missed out on during the Fringe Festival was Goldie’s Fries.  Most of the summer the truck is situated just off the edge of the Cube.  Goldie’s has been around for a while, but was out of commission for almost two years after an accident that occurred while the truck was headed to a Bomber game.  You can read that story here, but the truck is now back up and in business.  Goldie’s claim…Continue readingGoldie’s Fries For Lunch

Shawarma at Falafel Queen

On my first trip up to Broadway this summer, I took pictures of several food trucks with the intention of visiting them later.  The second truck I visited was the Falafel Queen truck, which serves traditional mid-eastern fare such as falafels and shawarma.  For lunch, I had the Beef Shawarma combo (with fries and drink). Value: All the mains are $6.00 or $7.00, in addition they offer combos of main, samosa or fries, and soft drink for $9.00 and $10.00 respectively. …Continue readingShawarma at Falafel Queen

Pimp My Rice Food Truck

The latest visit in my attempt to try all various food trucks around Winnipeg was at Pimp my Rice, the new Filipino food truck.  I quite enjoy Filipino food. It’s been out for a few weeks now, but every time I’ve gone by it, the lineups have been very long.  Today I got around that problem by taking an early lunch and getting to the truck at about 11:40a.m., at which point there was no lineup at all.  For my…Continue readingPimp My Rice Food Truck

On Broadway

One of the advantages of having a job where your hours and breaks don’t occur at set time is that you can take a more leisurely approach to lunches.  Combine that with working downtown and I’m able to wander off a few blocks from the office to find interesting lunch fare.  Today, I wandered up om Broadway during my lunch break to see what was new in the world of lunch trucks.  Not all the lunch trucks up their are…Continue readingOn Broadway
