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

Vinh Long Vietnamese

A few months back I wrote about L & Y Tasty Soup at Portage Place. I was particularly happy to find a non-chain restaurant operating in a food court. Well, Winnipeg Square ups the ante in this regard as they have several such places. I’ll try and get around to checking out all of them in the next little while, but for now I want to highlight Vinh Long Vietnamese restaurant.One of the things I really like about the Winnipeg Square food…Continue readingVinh Long Vietnamese

Vi-Ann Restaurant

For all the years I walked by it in Osborne Village, I never once visited Vi-Ann restaurant. I’m not sure why, although Spicy Noodle House has always been my Osborne Village stand-by. Then all of a sudden, in a controversial decision, Vi-Ann was gone. Eventually it re-opened on Notre Dame. However, it was only recently that I noticed the new location. This time I decided I had to make sure I tried it. So, in the last couple of weeks…Continue readingVi-Ann Restaurant

Pho Mama’s Noodle House

Sometimes I hear about a restaurant I should try, but don’t realize how close to me it actually is. Pho Mama’s Noodle House on McPhilip’s Street is one. I’ve had several friends comment on Pho Mama’s. Yet, somehow I’ve missed out on the fact that it just down the street from Lucky Supermarket. I guess I should have played closer attention. Especially since it’s open until 3 am and most restaurants in the area are closed by 10, or so…Continue readingPho Mama’s Noodle House

Vietnam Restaurant

Vietnam restaurant has since closed and has been replaced by another restaurant. I have yet to have a chance to check it out. That restaurant has since been replaced, by Pho 5 Star.  If you like value in your restaurant experiences. Restaurants in strip malls are usually a good bet. One such place in Winnipeg’s West End is Vietnam Restaurant. Located just north of Sargent Avenue in a strip mall that contains a pizza joint, laundromat and medical centre, Vietnam Restaurant has…Continue readingVietnam Restaurant

Nhu Quyhn West End Treasure

Nhu Quyhn is one of my favourite restaurants in Winnipeg. I first wrote this place up almost six years ago. I’ve been there on and off since then, but after a recent visit I wanted to do an update.  Not much has changed here over the years. The tables are still covered with the same plastic table clothes. It still is fairly busy anytime you go in. Best of all the food is all still very good. On my last…Continue readingNhu Quyhn West End Treasure
