Elephant and Castle

This is my second go round at Elephant and Castle. Yesterday I revisited Yellow Dog Tavern, and I decided to give another pub a try last night. My initial review, which is underneath this one, occurred just after they went through a major renovation. They may have made some changes since then(2015), but it feels pretty much the same. I found a table for for two in an area without many customers. I had in mind that I would order…Continue readingElephant and Castle

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

I’ve visited the Clay Oven location on Kenaston, but that was several years ago when my family was in town for a visit. So,…Continue readingClay Oven – Hydro Building

One result of this is that I have been doing more indoor walking in the last few weeks. From a restaurant point of view this took me back to Flavour Fusion in Winnipeg Square, and recently to…Continue readingCafe Asante, Winnipeg Square

Thai Express – Portage Place

A few months ago, I asked a question in the Manitoba Food Bloggers Facebook group. What is your favourite food court restaurant. I got a variety of answers. Oddly, I can’t remember what my own answer to the question was. All I know is that it has changed. Back then it likely would have been Koya Japan. Now it is undoubtedly Thai Express. Specifically the Thai Express in Portage Place. I like Thai food, so it should come as no…Continue readingThai Express – Portage Place

Little Maria’s, Edmonton Street

Little Maria’s is now closed. There is a new restaurant there, called This Little Place, and from what I gather the menu is very similar to the old menu at Little Maria’sIt’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted. My schedule has been very full and I haven’t found many new places. Yesterday, though I paid another visit to Little Maria’s Porchetta & Meatballs on Edmonton Street.If you’ve read the About Page, you know one of the important things…Continue readingLittle Maria’s, Edmonton Street
