Best Meal – Food Truck

Well, spring has arrived and the food trucks are slowly trickling back out onto the street. So far, I have noticed only one new one, called Best Meal. 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

Kyu Grill – Street Cart

Yesterday, ManyFest announced it’s initial line-up for September’s Food Truck Wars. Looking through the list, a couple of names stood out. The first was the Walleye Wagon. Which I had visited and not yet written about, and Kyu Grill, which I had visited for the first time earlier in the day. Since I had already been there once, I decided I would pay Kyu Grill a second visit today. Kyu Grill is a food cart that is operated by the…Continue readingKyu Grill – Street Cart

Churro Stop, Sweet Stop

As Winnipeg’s food truck scene continues to evolve, one area that is still a little under represented is the dessert area. There are a couple of ice cream trucks, and of course the ice cream bikes. However, other than Tokyo Rabbit, and these ice cream vendors, dessert is still a little hard to find. The entrance of The Churro Stop into the field helps to change this, and in the frozen treat area, Pop Cart sounds like they wish to…Continue readingChurro Stop, Sweet Stop

Better than Baba’s

The menu for Better than Baba’s focuses on perogies and other Ukranian comfort foods such as cabbage rolls and borscht. It’s menu is similar to that of Baba’s Tall Grass Pantry, at The Forks. Given that my day was split up around the lunch hour, I decide I would make two visits. Yes, I ate two lunches in one day. So, here are my thoughts using my usual food truck formula. We’re half way into spring in Winnipeg. It seems…Continue readingBetter than Baba’s

Waki Temaki Sushi Truck

When I did my preliminary Food Truck Power Rankings, I mentioned that there were three trucks that I still hadn’t tried. I’ve now visited Waki Temaki Sushi Truck, so I can knock that number down to two. Waki Temaki is run by the owner and chef of Yujiro Japanese Restaurant on Grant Avenue. You can generally find the Waki Temaki truck on Broadway in one of the blocks close to the Legislature. Winnipeg has approximately 12,000 sushi restaurants*. This is a…Continue readingWaki Temaki Sushi Truck
