This review of Noor Mahal restaurant is a new experience for me. Over the last 8 or so years, I’ve reviewed around 400 restaurants. This review marks the first review of a restaurant, sight and site, unseen. Such are the realities of restaurant reviews during a time of Covid lockdown. Noor Mahal – Delivery Dining Generally speaking, I am not a fan of delivery. I much prefer to go to various restaurants and enjoy the atmosphere as well as the…Continue readingNoor Mahal Restaurant – A New Experience
Eden’s Taste is a new meal delivery service. As far as I can tell, it is only available in Winnipeg. A few months ago I tried Hello Fresh. Unlike Hello Fresh, the meals from Eden’s Taste come ready made. Eden’s Taste Dinners As you can see from the above pictures the meals are delivered in containers similar to some frozen entrees. A couple of things to note. These meals arrive fresh. When I received my first delivery, the dishes were…Continue readingEden’s Taste-Meal Delivery Service.

This location has long been my favourite in the food court. *Since I wrote this, I would say that PegCity Poutinerie has taken that spot.

My favourite choice…Continue readingSamosa Hut – CityPlace
Charisma of India is one of several fine Indian buffets in Winnipeg. I like buffets of all sorts, and particularly Indian buffets. I’ve been for the lunch buffet in the past, but somehow or other never gotten around to visiting again. This is rather surprising seeing that it’s Sherbrook location is so close to St. Margaret’s, one of the parishes I’m involved with as a priest. As far as the buffet goes, I quite like it. The lunch buffet at…Continue readingCharisma – Sherbrook Street
