Mikky’s – Mobile Throwback

It’s May 2022 and I am at Mikky’s for another re-review. Covid-19 certainly damaged Winnipeg’s food truck scene. That’s on top of the City of Winnipeg regulating it in such a fashion, that there are almost no food trucks downtown anymore.  Food trucks are way of democratizing dining out. Now, however, they are almost only available to people getting in their cars and driving to grocery store parking lots, and car sales lots. As an aside, although they often go…Continue readingMikky’s – Mobile Throwback

Habanero Sombrero – Fire on Broadway

Habanero Sombrero has gone off-Broadway. Over the winter the owners announced that they were closing down their truck. Since then they have reopened inside The Forks Market. The Forks location is in the Food Hall in the Common. The space was formerly occupied by Kyu Grill.  Why they left, I do not know. However their cart is still in business. Taco Time at Habanero Sombrero My first time at the new location I order the tacos. There are several varieties…Continue readingHabanero Sombrero – Fire on Broadway

The Broadway location opened several months ago, and while I walk by it often, it is only recently that I stopped in. You can visit this post for my take on their Fried Chicken Fest entry.  My first visit came as part of a reunion of sorts. For several years during…Continue readingCapital Grill + Bar – Broadway Location

Don Restaurant – Donald Street

I noticed recently that the Don restaurant had a sign up that said it was under new ownership. I stopped in for breakfast and noticed that  the menu was still the same and the breakfast was much as I had remembered it. Known properly as The Don Restaurant, this place was one I visited, generally for takeout, when I worked at L.C. Taylor and Company as it’s just across Broadway and down Donald a little. I didn’t visit because of…Continue readingDon Restaurant – Donald Street

A year and a bit after their opening, Oh Doughnuts are not only available at their in store location but at a variety of coffee shops and restaurants around Winnipeg My walk to work just got more fattening. Oh Doughnuts has just opened up on Broadway. This is the opening I’ve been waiting for ever since owner Amanda Kinden decided to move from supplying coffee shops with doughnuts and open her own storefront location. I’ve been a fan of her…Continue readingOh Doughnuts – Broadway
