Mikky’s – Mobile Throwback

It’s May 2022 and I am at Mikky’s for another re-review. Covid-19 certainly damaged Winnipeg’s food truck scene. That’s on top of the City of Winnipeg regulating it in such a fashion, that there are almost no food trucks downtown anymore.  Food trucks are way of democratizing dining out. Now, however, they are almost only available to people getting in their cars and driving to grocery store parking lots, and car sales lots. As an aside, although they often go…Continue readingMikky’s – Mobile Throwback

Best Meal – Food Truck

Well, spring has arrived and the food trucks are slowly trickling back out onto the street. So far, I have noticed only one new one, called Best Meal. I believe the Extreme Fries Truck is a repainted version of the one that was out before, but I could be corrected. (NB I have been corrected, it has a new owner as well, Bobbie Mack). Best Meal serves the usual assortment of hot dogs and hamburgers, but specializes in Middle Easter…Continue readingBest Meal – Food Truck

Smokin Haut BBQ Truck

A little while back when I wrote my 2015 power rankings post, I mentioned that were still a few trucks that I hadn’t gotten around to visiting. Smokin Haut (I left out the apostrophe because it doesn’t show up well on the web), was one of those trucks. I can now cross it off the list. Smokin Haut BBQ Truck showed up at The Forks today, so I was able to do one of those lunch-supper visits. That’s another benefit…Continue readingSmokin Haut BBQ Truck

Doner Delight from Iggy’s

(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

Fired Up Pizza, Glacial Service

Winnipeg’s food truck scene continues to grow.  It’s not surprising then that as it does so, there are more trucks offering the same type of food.  On my way to work earlier in the week, I noticed a new, blue truck on Broadway. This is Fired Up Pizza.  Last year saw the debut of The Red Ember Pizza Truck.  Red Ember sells wood-fired pizzas made from home-grown ingredients.  Fired Up doesn`t claim the home-grown part, but is also selling wood-fired…Continue readingFired Up Pizza, Glacial Service

Red Ember – Wood-Fired Pizza

I’ve consolidated my two Red Ember posts into one.redembercommonRED EMBERI mentioned in my post on Barbie & Gabi’s Specialteez (no longer in business) that one of the new trucks out on Broadway, was a pizza truck whose name I didn’t get.  Well, on Tuesday,  I headed down that direction again, happy to find that the pizza truck, named The Red Ember, was out on the street again.The Red Ember Truck is the most noticeable truck out on the street.  It is…Continue readingRed Ember – Wood-Fired Pizza
