Once again it’s time for Fried Chicken Fest. Like last year, the 2022 version will be affected by Covid lockdowns.

Garwood Grill – Pembina Highway

Garwood Grill is a family style restaurant located on Pembina Highway just a few blocks south of Winnipeg’s famed Confusion Corner. The Garwood Grill is one of those restaurants that is something of an institution. Once again however, it’s one of those institutions that until recently I’ve managed to avoid visiting.

Meltdown Grilled Cheese, Tia Maria’s Taqueria

It’s the second weekend of September and that means it’s time for Manyfest. Manyfest means it’s time for Food Truck Wars. This year there are 52 trucks entered. Although it may surprise some people, I won’t be trying them all. Instead I’m focusing on trucks like Meltdown Grilled Cheese and Tia Maria’s Taqueria, neither of which I’ve tried before. To attempt to cover several trucks over the course of the weekend will require eating of epic, heroic, or simply foolish…Continue readingMeltdown Grilled Cheese, Tia Maria’s Taqueria

BBK Barbeque Trailer

I mentioned in my post on the Red Lake Coffee Co Truck, that on Canada Day, I had also eaten at BBK Barbeque trailer and that I’d include a review of that trailer shortly.BBK has been around for quite a few years now. It’s more of an event trailer than a street truck, so I don’t see it out that often. I have though, over the last few years had a chance to try several of their items. This is…Continue readingBBK Barbeque Trailer
