Samosa Hut – CityPlace

Samosa Hut is an Indian restaurant located in Cityplace mall. It’s located just before the spot where the skywalk connects Cityplace across St. Mary avenue. 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.  Prior to Samosa Hut being there the space held a Greek restaurant whose name I can’t remember, but made a really great Avgolemono soup among other items. My favourite choice…Continue readingSamosa Hut – CityPlace

Palatal Express – Guilty Pleasure

I never visited the Palatal Mongolian Stir-Fry on Pembina that now houses Royal Punjab Sweet House. However, I visit the Palatal Express at Sherbrook and Portage on a semi-regular spot.

Sadly, Palatal Express is now closed.  Like a…Continue readingPalatal Express – Guilty Pleasure

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

Taste of (Meh)diterranean

Taste of Mediterranean I was wandering westward down Graham Avenue a couple of weeks ago and noticed that there was a new restaurant located at the back of the same building that contains Starbucks.  The signs stated that the new place was called Taste of Mediterranean. Perhaps the sign should have tipped me off to what the restaurant would be like.  The generic photograph of the chicken dinner reflects quite accurately the generic nature of the food served at the…Continue readingTaste of (Meh)diterranean
