Les Saj Restaurant – 1038 St. James St.

My Les Saj review has been over two years in the making. It wasn’t meant to be, but after my first visit in 2018 it took me over three years to make it back. Granted, Covid had something to do with that, but it was so long there is no way I can trust my memory of that first meal. Les Saj is a strip mall restaurant. However once inside, there is quite attractive seating. The kitchen is on the…Continue readingLes Saj Restaurant – 1038 St. James St.

Santa Lucia Pizza – St. Mary’s Road

It’s been a few years since I last visited Santa Lucia, but yesterday I was looking for something close to St. Philip’s that would be quick.

Our Hours: Sunday…Continue readingYafa Cafe – Middle East Street Food

Greektown Food Truck

One of the best parts of all the food trucks in Winnipeg is that you can get a wide variety of foods. For me Greek food is one of the first non-British foods that I can remember eating on a regular basis. The first would be Indian. When we first moved to Winnipeg my dad worked on Ellice Avenue just down from Homer’s. I miss the old Greek restaurant that was in City Place. So, I was glad when Greektown…Continue readingGreektown Food Truck
