Thanh Huong Vietnamese Restaurant

Over the last few years I’ve reviewed about 20 or so Vietnamese restaurants. Even with that, there are still several that I haven’t gotten around to trying. One of these is Thanh HuongContinue readingThanh Huong Vietnamese Restaurant

Binh An – Mixed Bag

Binh An is the third North Main restaurant that I visited first early in January. The other two were Modern Coffee and Newcastle Restaurant. Bihn An is located in a little strip mall just south of Main and Redwood. One aspect of Binh An that I like is that there is good bus service up to it. The 15, 18, and 20 routes all stop across the street. When you walk in the register is straight ahead of you, and to…Continue readingBinh An – Mixed Bag

Pho Kim Tuong Vietnamese Restaurant

If there is one type of restaurant that my area of Winnipeg is blessed with an abundance of, it’s Vietnamese.

Pho KIm Tuong is…Continue readingPho Kim Tuong Vietnamese Restaurant

Saigon Star Vietnamese Restaurant

One of the culinary features of the part of Winnipeg I live in, is it’s proliferation of Vietnamese restaurants. A quick check of Google Maps lists at least 18 within at most 12 blocks of my house. Some have been there for a very long time, and it seems that there are always new ones popping up. One such restaurant, that if not entirely new, (the restaurants in the area also move around from time to time), is Saigon Star,…Continue readingSaigon Star Vietnamese Restaurant

Pho Hoang Sargent Avenue

My original review was sparked by the renovations on Portage Avenue. Since I wrote the original, the Portage Avenue Pho Hoang location has opened. So, last night I went in to check it out. When you walk into the storefront location, one of the first things that grabs your eye is the number of seats that have been squeezed into the space. There are two short and one longish bar counters against the wall, along with tables for a couple…Continue readingPho Hoang Sargent Avenue
