Pho Que Huong Ellice Avenue

There are so many good restaurants in the West End of Winnipeg. So many in fact, that it’s easy to simply never visit some of them. Pho Que Huong on Ellice Avenue is one such place. It probably doesn’t help that it’s located just down the street from Nhu Quynh, one of my favourite spots. However Pho Que Huong is good and stands on it’s own merits. Pho Que Huong Late Lunch My first visit to Pho Que Huong came…Continue readingPho Que Huong Ellice Avenue

Strong Badger Coffeehouse

Earlier this week a friend of mine posted on Facebook that he had gone on vacation and come back to a new coffee shop at the end of the street. I looked at the picture and saw the name Strong Badger. I knew I needed to visit as soon as possible. I first encountered Brock the owner of The Strong Badger Coffeehouse when I covered the Outdoor Community Cafe at Knox United. He was serving iced coffee at the time and…Continue readingStrong Badger Coffeehouse

Dalat – Grant Park Festival

Dalat is a Chinese-Vietnamese restaurant located at Grant Park Festival. I don’t know why they call a collection of shops a festival. However, I digress before I begin. After visiting the Boston Pizza here, I decided I would give Dalat a try as well. Restaurants that try to mix cuisines are always an interesting experience. Rarely do they do both well. Pho Mama’s being one notable exception. Dalat Chinese/Vietnamese Supper: I decided to brave the rain one evening and take…Continue readingDalat – Grant Park Festival

Boston Pizza – Taylor Avenue

Boston Pizza is one these places that always leaves me with mixed feelings. It seems to offer so much, but I often come away slightly disappointed. The City Place location is the one I visit the most. So, when I received a gift card the other day, I thought I would try a different site. Instead of my usual City Place location I went with the Boston Pizza on Taylor just down from Grant Park Mall. I like the area,…Continue readingBoston Pizza – Taylor Avenue

Chosabi Asian Eatery, IRL

Last Thursday, I attended an event at Chosabi Asian Eatery that was fundraising for the Health Sciences Centre foundation. You might recognize the letters at the end of the title, as standing for In Real Life. One of the elements of social media that has been missing from my life for the last little while has been the meeting in real life of people I’m connected to on the web. One of the surprising discoveries when I first got on…Continue readingChosabi Asian Eatery, IRL

Simon’s Cuisine – Forks Market

It’s only been three years since I wrote my original Simon’s post but during the time there has been a fairly significant change in the approach the restaurant has taken. Rather than focusing on Empanadas, they have moved their focus to steak, and now are calling themselves Simon’s Steaks. They offer it a variety of forms, from sandwiches to rib and strip loins. I hadn’t been since they made the change, but a family visit today, gave me reason to…Continue readingSimon’s Cuisine – Forks Market
