Union Station Cafe Kiosk

Union Station on Main Street at Broadway was once one of the transportation hubs in Winnipeg. There still are some trains that come through, but mainly the building is dedicated to offices.

The kiosk has a limited menu that mainly consists of salads, sandwiches, and…Continue readingUnion Station Cafe Kiosk

This is Fired Up Pizza.  Last year saw the debut of The Red Ember Pizza Truck.  Red Ember sells wood-fired pizzas made from home-grown ingredients.  Fired Up doesn`t claim the home-grown part, but is also selling wood-fired…Continue readingFired Up Pizza, Glacial Service

Thida’s Thai, Downtown

For many years I worked on the corner of Donald and Broadway, in downtown Winnipeg. For the first part of my time there one of my regular stops for lunch was at Thida’s Thai Restaurant, which was a quick trip across the lane from the building I worked in.  I’ve always thought they had really good food.  I also really like the heat that is a feature of so much Thai food.However, over time I noticed a trend.  I would…Continue readingThida’s Thai, Downtown
