Vientiane Thai Restaurant

Today marked a return visit to Vientiane Thai restaurant. I’m on holidays, and I hope to use that time to post a whole bunch of new material, as well as update some older posts. As I was going through potential post I realized that it has been 8 years since I wrote up Vientiane Thai. One thing I notice when I look at thes4e old reviews I didn’t really pay attention to decor. They seem to be almost entirely about…Continue readingVientiane Thai Restaurant

SMITH Restaurant, Inn at the Forks

SMITH restaurant is the onsite restaurant at the Inn at the Forks hotel. As the name suggests, the hotel is located on The Forks site. SMITH is a restaurant that I probably should have reviewed a few years ago. It’s a place I go to every so often, but somehow never get around to writing about. SMITH is the second restaurant to be housed in this hotel. The original restaurant was called The Current. I think I only visited once,…Continue readingSMITH Restaurant, Inn at the Forks

I don’t hear much about them now, but a couple of decades ago, they were stars of the Canadian softball scene. Smitty’s is a popular place if you wish to go and watch a Bomber or Jets game. Given my general dislike of crowds, I haven’t visited on these occasions, but their a recently priced…Continue readingSmitty’s Restaurant 580 Pembina Hwy

Lake of the Woods Brewing Co 242 Hargrave St

Lake of the Woods Brewing Co, on the main floor of the Hargrave Street Market is one of those places that has become a bit of a hangout for me. While I’m always on the lookout for new, and different spots to eat and drink, I always appreciate a place that can become a second home. When I look for a place that I will want to visit regularly there are two things that I look for. The first is…Continue readingLake of the Woods Brewing Co 242 Hargrave St
