Pho Yo Vietnamese Cuisine

The lead up to Christmas is one of my busy times as a priest. In addition to added services, I have a few more visits to make as opposed to the rest of the year. Being out and about more than usual, I try to fit in stops at some restaurants that I haven’t hit before. One such place is Pho Yo Vietnamese Cuisine on St. Mary’s Road.Pho Yo is in the space that was once occupied by Simon’s Cuisine.…Continue readingPho Yo Vietnamese Cuisine

Sargent Taco Shop – Tam’s Pho

Generally I do reviews of restaurants separately, but today I’m doing a review of both Sargent Taco Shop and Tam’s Pho. While the cuisine is different, and one is trying to replicate a distinctive vibe, they have a couple of things in common that make for a good review. The first is that they are both small establishments. Sargent Taco has one table and a few stools, but advertises itself as a take-out restaurant. Tam’s Pho has a little more…Continue readingSargent Taco Shop – Tam’s Pho

Pho Binh Minh – 819 Sargent Avenue

Having recently moved, I find myself going out and exploring the various restaurants close to my new location. It’s one of those interesting things. Even though I wasn’t many blocks farther away from these restaurants than I am now, those extra few blocks meant I didn’t get out and check out places like Pho Binh Minh. Pho Binh Minh is located on Sargent, just past Arlington in a little professional plaza. The restaurant takes up about half of the street…Continue readingPho Binh Minh – 819 Sargent Avenue

The other day I was walking through the University of Winnipeg, when I noticed a poster that said that the Long Island Cafe was reopening at the end of February. This was a bit of surprise, as I wasn’t aware that it had closed down in the…Continue readingLong Island Cafe – Portage Avenue

Banh Mi King – Portage Avenue

I rather stumbled across Banh Mi King the other day, even though it’s smack dab in the middle of Portage Avenue across from the University of Winnipeg. I found myself wandering down there on my way home a few days ago and decided to stop in. I don’t know who designed it, but the interior reminds me of King + Bannatyne and Chosabi. While a pleasant style with the window bar seating and one large table, the design seems to…Continue readingBanh Mi King – Portage Avenue

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
