Up South barbecue Truck

It’s ManyFest weekend here in Winnipeg. Yesterday I took in the first day of the Food Truck Wars. Wanting to try some of the new trucks I went at lunch and at supper. One of the new trucks is Up South barbeque. I hadn’t come across Up South barbecue on the streets, but was aware of it as friends had tried it, and recommended it to me. Up South barbecue was the first of the trucks I visited yesterday. It…Continue readingUp South barbecue Truck

Food Truck Wars at ManyFest

Here are a couple of general posts about the 2014 edition of ManyFest and the food truck wars, that I have combined into one.  ManyFest has arrived, and with it the Food Truck Wars.  I plan on writing a couple of reviews over the weekend, but today I’m starting with a post about the day itself.There was a bit of bad news about the day, so I’ll dispense with that first. The Food Truck Wars got off to a bit…Continue readingFood Truck Wars at ManyFest

Waki Temaki Sushi Truck

When I did my preliminary Food Truck Power Rankings, I mentioned that there were three trucks that I still hadn’t tried.

You can generally find the Waki Temaki truck on Broadway in one of the blocks close to the Legislature. Winnipeg has approximately 12,000 sushi restaurants*. This is a…Continue readingWaki Temaki Sushi Truck

Island Fusion Food Truck

I’ve visited Island Fusion a couple of times since I wrote this review. I find the quality of the food is as good as when I initially visited. The one thing worth noting is that there are often specials on offer. Even if you’ve been several times before, it’s worth taking a look to see what new or limited items might be on offer. When I wrote about the Red River Ex, I mentioned that there was a truck serving…Continue readingIsland Fusion Food Truck

Doner Delight from Iggy’s

Yesterday, I was wandering through downtown after meeting up for a quick coffee with a friend or two at Second Cup.  As I was approaching the Law Courts building I saw what appeared to be another new food truck.  I went over, and sure enough, it was.  This one is called Iggy’s Family Doner. (I realize there’s an umlaut, but it doesn’t translate well to the blog post).Given that there was only one person in front of me, I thought…Continue readingDoner Delight from Iggy’s

Special at Garbonzo’s Goes Beyond Food

The Garbonzo’s that I reviewed in this post has now closed, so I’ll have to look elsewhere for something special. The University of Winnipeg is looking for more classroom space. Both the Garbonzo’s and the Starbucks in the University Annex have closed as of the beginning of May. Last night I decided to take in the Jet’s game while visiting the U of W location of Garbonzo’s. Since I wrote the original post I’ve also been here during one of…Continue readingSpecial at Garbonzo’s Goes Beyond Food
