Yafa Cafe – Middle East Street Food

Yafa Cafe, is a Middle Eastern Street Food restaurant, located in the Saint James neighbourhood of Winnipeg. As regular readers of the blog know, I don’t drive. As a result, much of my reviewing of restaurants takes place in the downtown, and neighbouring areas.

Shawarma Time is Now…Continue readingShawarma Time – Ellice Avenue

I believe the Extreme Fries Truck is a repainted version of the one that was out before, but I could be corrected. (NB I have been corrected, it has a new owner as well, Bobbie Mack). Best Meal serves the usual assortment of hot dogs and hamburgers, but specializes in Middle Easter…Continue readingBest Meal – Food Truck
