Samosa Hut is an Indian restaurant located in Cityplace mall. It’s located just before the spot where the skywalk connects Cityplace across St. Mary avenue. This location has long been my favourite in the food court. *Since I wrote this, I would say that PegCity Poutinerie has taken that spot. Prior to Samosa Hut being there the space held a Greek restaurant whose name I can’t remember, but made a really great Avgolemono soup among other items.

I’ve been for the lunch buffet in the past, but somehow or other never gotten around to visiting again. This is rather surprising seeing that it’s Sherbrook location is so close to St. Margaret’s, one of the parishes I’m involved with as a priest. As far as the buffet goes, I quite like it.

I didn’t visit because of…Continue readingDon Restaurant – Donald Street

His Shawarma Khan in the Exchange was fairly early among the restaurants I’ve reviewed. Green Carrot Liquid…Continue readingGreen Carrot Juice Co.
A year and a bit after their opening, Oh Doughnuts are not only available at their in store location but at a variety of coffee shops and restaurants around Winnipeg My walk to work just got more fattening. Oh Doughnuts has just opened up on Broadway. This is the opening I’ve been waiting for ever since owner Amanda Kinden decided to move from supplying coffee shops with doughnuts and open her own storefront location. I’ve been a fan of her…Continue readingOh Doughnuts – Broadway
Cornerstone Bar and restaurant is now closed. As I mentioned in my post on Sonya’s restaurant, I’ve been involved in a stage production of the Vicar of Dibley. The performances were held at Crescent Fort Rouge United Church as part of their Arts Festival. With the final week of rehearsal and performance taking place there, I paid several visits to Osborne Village restaurants. The first of these that I’m writing about is The Cornerstone Bar & Restaurant. Cornerstone occupies the…Continue readingCornerstone Bar-Restaurant
